Membership is down this year--108 households, compared to a record high of 133 in 2013. This despite a great year for the lake, which hasn't looked so good in ages. But it means we don't have as much in our coffers to spend on lake improvements. If you're a current member & can afford to chip in a few more dollars, please do so now. Any amount will help!

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

This never would have happened, of course, without the hard working volunteers that advertised, stored, loaded, transported, and sold all kinds of items. Thanks to RLA board member Lynne Sewell for organizing the event, and a special thanks to the Williams family for allowing us to use their front yard and for their hospitality throughout the day.
The entire crew had a fun time hanging out with neighbors while raising money to help keep our lake beautiful.
