An issue that will affect the water quality of our lake and the watershed is coming before the Leelanau County Commissioners. The Executive Board of Commissioners Meeting of the Leelanau County Board of Commissioners will be held on Tuesday, November 14 at 9:00 am in the Meeting Room of the Leelanau County Government Center in Suttons Bay, Michigan.
It has been over 20 years since the Lake Leelanau Lake Association has conducted shoreline surveys. The size of the lakes (41 miles of shoreline) and cost have been a barrier to repeating these surveys. The advent of drone technology has once again made it possible for LLLA to repeat this work in a cost effective manner.
The Lake Leelanau Lake Association will be hosting its Annual Meeting at the Leland Lodge on Wednesday, July 26 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. All members and non-members are welcome. Come hear about what the Lake Association has done this year to improve the quality of the lake. We will have our business meeting and two speakers who will discuss the swimmer’s itch project and issues of water quality.

Since joining this organization and becoming communications chair over two years ago I have been pleased to make new friends and eager to help spread the word of all the good work done by LLLA. Today, however, I am writing to let you know that, due to increased outside commitments, I will need to pass the baton to someone else.
The last time there was thawing weather in northern Michigan, I spotted some individuals out on Boardman Lake. One must remember that ice can wear thin where there is a river running through. Did they think about that? Ice fishing can be fun but also a risky and a very dangerous endeavor. Ever since I was a child, I remember walking on the ice with my father holding the ice spud and checking every few feet.
