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.
I am passing on this message from Tim Johnson, Chair of the Centerville Township Planning Commission (PC).Tim informs us of the passing of long time board member Gerry Laskey, who will be greatly missed.
The Township Board will be soliciting Centerville Township residents to fill the vacancy. Their PC bylaws state that they should strive to have occupational and geographical representation, so they would like to have a lakefront landowner on the PC.
We our pleased to announce our affiliation with Michigan Shoreland Stewards, a program which provides recognition for lakefront property owners who are protecting inland lakes through best management practices on their property.
Become a Michigan Shoreland Steward!
Each year more and more lake front properties are being developed and natural lakefront habitats are becoming scarce.
In the end, the rain held off for just long enough and we had a wonderful gathering! The 2016 Legacy Event was held on Saturday, August 27th at the lakeside home of the Alpaughs, near Neddows Bay. We had a great turnout and would like to thank the Alpaughs for hosting us in such a congenial setting.
Jeff Green – Leland Township Representative
Jeff was born in Lakewood, Ohio, and grew up there, in suburban Detroit, and suburban Chicago. He attended the University of Illinois where he earned a B.S. and Ph.D. in Economics. Upon completion of his graduate work he married the beautiful Susan Dunn and joined the faculty at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana (IU).
We are fortunate to be working with the firm SiCon (Swimmer’s Itch Control) in the pursuance of our goal of controlling swimmer’s itch in our beautiful lake. Ron and Curt of SiCon did a great presentation at our annual meeting on July 20th, and they have now shared their slides with us here at LLLA. I think you will all agree that there is much to digest here.
Huge! Yuge! And fun, and informative .. those are a few of the words to describe our Annual Meeting held at the Leland Lodge on July 20th. It’s always great to meet and greet our membership and to get to know more of our fellow riparians. This year’s attendance was nearly 100 people who came together to listen, learn, and share their views.
Our LLLA Annual Meeting will be held tomorrow from 6:30 to 8:00 at the Leland Lodge. Please make sure to attend, and bring a friend or two. All are welcome to share in the wonderful hors d’oeuvres provided by LLLA. There will be a cash bar.
We have some very important topics to discuss, and we greatly value your attendance and your ideas.
