Announcements Around The Lake


The annual RLA picnic will be held on Saturday, August 4 (rain date: Sunday the 5th), at Crescent Beach from 1:00 to 6:00. The RLA will be cookin' up burgers & hot dogs and will also provide beverages. Please bring salads, side dishes, &/or desserts to share with your neighbors. This is a great way to get to know your fellow lakers, so please join us for an afternoon of fun.


The deadline for attaching your 2018 RLA stickers to all boats on the two beaches is August 15. After August 15, all boats without a current sticker will be removed. If not claimed, the boats will then be sold, with proceeds going toward the RLA. If you are a member but do not have a boat sticker, please contact the RLA using the "Contact" link on this website. If you are NOT a member, please remove your boat from the beach before August 15.


The 4th annual Wataba Lake Festival will be held on Saturday, September 15, at "Hippie Hill" (25 Clearview Drive) from noon to 6 p.m. Live music, food, & lots of family fun for all! Stay tuned for more details.


On Saturday, 14 April, we had the Spring Beach Cleanup at Crescent Beach. We  painted the rafts/docks and a picnic table. The beaches look beautiful - we are ready for beach season!


On Saturday, May 12th, we held the Annual General Meeting at the Ridgefield Recreation Center. Elections were held for 3 positions on the Board of the RLA. The winners are: Marty Gold, Marc Moll, and Chuck Sussman.


An important reminder to Rainbow Lake residents:

 

When raking or blowing leaves, please DO NOT dispose of your leaves in the lake.
