Beautiful Place, Wonderful Community
We are on hold for a bit with this project after talking to the contractor. Standby for details.
This fall (2021) we will start Phase IB of our Lake Restoration with the Crescent Beach Restoration Project. Please donate today (especially if you enjoy using the beach)!
The beach is central to our community and cleaning out the muck on the bottom will make it much more enjoyable and environmentally sound. As with Phase IA on Crescent Cove, the RLA has allocated
funds, but we need additional help from the community. Removing the accumulated sediment removes the excess nutrients from the lake to keep it healthy and beautiful. And, at the beach in
particular, you and your kids will enjoy walking on the bottom without sinking into the muck!
Announcements Around The Lake
The Summer Picnic and Community Get-Together for RLA members is planned for Saturday, August 7th, 1:00pm at Crescent Beach. Please join us for a great time of food and fun. We are planning to have hotdogs, burgers, corn on the cob, and beverages. And, best of all, you'll get to spend an afternoon by the lake with friends and neighbors. For the picnic, we ask that members bring a salad, side dish, covered dish or dessert to share with your neighbors.
MOUNTAIN RD. DOCK PROJECT
Some may not be aware, but there is an access to the lake near 205 Mountain Road that is owned by the Town of Ridgefield. For many years the neighbors in that area maintained a dock to ease loading of their boats. As the dock fell into disrepair, it was pulled out of the lake with the intention of fixing it up and returning it to the water. Unfortunately, that project stalled. In discussions with neighbors, the RLA has agreed to split the cost of a new dock, and then the RLA would maintain the dock in the future. To that end, if you would like to donate to the new Mountain Road Dock click https://www.rainbowlake.org/membership/specific-projects/.
Thanks to all who donated goods to or bought goods at the 2020 RLA Tag Sale, where we raised upwards of $1,800 for the Lake Improvement Fund! It was an impressive haul for a cloudy fall day in the midst of a pandemic. Extra thanks to all those who volunteered their time & energy to running the sale, with special thanks to Michael Drobney for allowing us to hold the sale on his property.
Rainbow Lake resident & official RLA animator Chris Williams has graciously designed some very cool Rainbow Lake merchandize that is now available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the RLA. T-shirts, coffee mugs, car magnets & other groovy swag can be found HERE.
An important reminder to Rainbow Lake residents:
When raking or blowing leaves, please DO NOT dispose of your leaves in the lake.
