2021 4th of July Boat parade
The boat parade was on Sunday, the 4th of July this year. The parade started at Loon Point at 1:00. We had 12 boats participate this year. That's a great turnout!
There were 2 categories of prizes this year. The categories are Most Patriotic and Most Creative. Both winners received a Dairy Queen Gift Certificate the honor of holding a traveling trophy until next years big event.
The winners were
Most Creative: Jerry and Sara Mix with the pink flamingo
Most Patriotic: Cecil and Barb Schmidt for the Mt Rushmore, Statue of liberty and red smoke bombs!
2021 Annual Meeting
The annual meeting was held via Zoom this year on Tuesday June 15th 7PM - 9PM.
With Covid still a concern and the Clearwater Camp in the middle of it's major construction project, the board decided that one more Zoom meeting made the most sense.
The power point and video are available on the Lake Association, 2021 Meeting web page.

2020 Annual Meeting, june 17, 7pm via zoom
The annual meeting was held via Zoom this year. For the most part things went smoothly and we had good turn out for this new form of meeting. Average number of signed in attendance was 48. This is an hard number to nail down, because some households signed in on multiple computers and some households had multiple generations of family on the same connection. Over all we were vary happy with the turn out.
The lake association board presented multiple reports on the health of our lake including milfoil and fisheries data. Guest speaker James Johnson, a lake specialist gave a very interesting and understandable presentation on measuring and analyzing the chemical treatments for milfoil.
A working document called a Lake Management Plan was presented and feedback was requested to help guide the board on lake issues.
2019 4th of July Boat Parade
Our 3rd Annual 4th of July Parade is scheduled for Saturday July 6th. Participants will meet at loon point at 1pm.
The parade then works it's way around the East end of the lake, crossing over to the SW shore before turning back and finishing at the near the end of Clearwater Point Road. If you want to watch the parade just hang around your dock around 1pm and watch the progress until they float on by. There is always a great deal of cheering and fun being had by everyone.
This is a JUDGED EVENT and the winner will receive a tasty prize AND a wonderful traveling trophy for bragging rights! Will our winners from last year - Patty and Ryan Moskalik and Angela and Peter Underthun retain their crown or will some new upstart dethrone them with a bigger and better boat! Maybe it will be your boat!
Just to note: the parade will NOT be rescheduled it will go on as planned or be canceled if weather does not co-operate. Check out this space on July 6th if you have any doubts.
RESTORATION boat PARADE, June 9, 2019 at 11:00 AM
The Clearwater Restoration project had a planned a boat parade to review the restoration projects from last year. The weather did not co-operate once again. It was overcast, cold and windy. So the event was repurposed to a caravan around the lake. We had 14 people that came to see our great progress!
All projects survived the winter with flying colors. They road out the extra cold, snow and high water just fine. We have built up a lot of new soil behind our willow wattle and are even starting to see some of the promised flowering color.
