President’s Message Proactive not Reactive 2019

There is no doubt that we had a real winter! There was plenty of ice that measured at least 20 inches deep and for a few weekends you could skate from one end of the lake to the other on crystal clear ice that was fun to see through. Ice fishing, ice hockey, tubing or skiing behind snowmobiles or just sitting on the beach with your face to the sun were winter activities providing lots of fun and keeping the four walls from closing in. February 2 nd ’ s prediction of an early spring was just not true. We endured sub-zero temps for a very long time and we are still waiting at the end of March for the hot sun to start melting the ice to replenish our lake with new cleansing waters. Our annual meeting last year at the American Legion in Gray opened the doors to a better seating plan, air conditioning and easy access for all. Mark your calendars for July 13 th to keep abreast of all the dynamic programs that are happening on your lake, peruse the new merchandise and just socialize with the lake community. This year we will be proposing a by-law change to the membership in order to begin the annual meeting earlier so we can leave earlier to enjoy our special weekends on the lake.

Over the winter the board of directors and committee members have worked to update and create new initiatives. Flipping the pages ahead will give you some of what has been worked on throughout this winter. I encourage you to educate yourself on what is happening on, around and within the lake to maintain the mission. Thank you to all those who have helped the board of directors to achieve our goals. Your dedication, volunteering and monetary assistance is what assures our successes. I am blessed to serve with a board of directors and committee members who are caring, professional, and proactive in thought, bringing to the table suggestions to further our programs to maintain the lake’s existence which leads to a memorable summer for all.

May the warm sun always be on your face and the gentle breeze keep you cool,

Pam Wilkinson LSLA President
