The Role of a Lake Association

A lake association provides a sense of community and can play a vital role in developing a stewardship program. Common interests and goals can be voiced and appropriate actions can be taken to achieve them. Associations link residents together on the basis of the same overall goal - the betterment and health of your  lake.
