Board Meeting ~ May 28, 2022

Below are a few important updates from the May Board Meeting and links to items on the website we wanted to pass along as summer gets underway.

 

  • Annual Meeting date is July 23. The location will be at the Namekagon Town Hall (County Rd. M and D) and we will start at 2 PM.  The reason for the early start this year is that the Cable Natural History Museum annual fund raising benefit/ gala is set from 5-9 PM on the same date. This will give those of you want to attend both, ample time to get to its venue in Drummond. The DL meeting will start promptly at 2 PM with a business meeting, followed by a presentation on shoreland management best practices by Michael Sinclair of Bay Area Environmental Consultants, LLC who are currently under contract with Lake Owen to assess their shoreland. There will be ample time during the presentation for your questions and ideas about this important subject.  Check this website for more information and previews of this talk. https://www.diamond-lakers.org/annual-meeting Following the presentation we should have about an hour (or more) for social activity. Please bring a light snack to share.

 

  • Help needed with our water quality grant work this summer.   Ed Wallen who is managing our water monitoring efforts this season, notes that we still need a few more volunteers for assistance with water-related measurements.  This is a great opportunity to get out and meet fellow Diamond Lakers and to help with this important effort.

 

The Lake Level measurement takes just a few moments and is done 2-3 times a week  You can easily combine this measurement with a slow boat cruise or paddle, or even a bike ride to the designated location. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040544ada629aafd0-lake

 

Water quality data are acquired every two weeks at three locations and take a bit more time.  Volunteers will assist Ed Wallen.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040544ada629aafd0-water

 

Please sign up on the website, or contact Ed directly to ask questions and volunteer.  wallenm888@gmail.com

 

  • July 2nd Boat Parade. This year it’s a Saturday. As in the past, line-up for the parade with your thematically-decorated boat begins at the center of the lake at 4PM.  Check the website for information about social activities following the parade (TBA).

 

  • Annual Dues.  Dues are coming in at a good clip.  Many thanks to those who have already sent them!  Please make payment ($50) to Diamond Lakers and send to P.O. Box 543 as per information in the Newsletter and the website. We send an updated directory and the new lake map with names to everyone as soon as dues are received.
