2022 Annual Meeting

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 16 for our annual meeting.  We will meet at the Pipke Park building again and the business meeting begins at 10 a.m.  We hope to schedule a speaker this year.

Following the meeting, stay for a pot luck lunch and a chance to socialize with your lake neighbors!

Annual Meeting Minutes

Minutes are now available from our annual meeting.  Thank you to all who attended.

Ed and LaVergne Brodsky had an unexpected visitor on their deck!  Also check out the beautiful seed pod photo from Ed that is now front and center in our plants gallery.

Annual Meeting July 17, 2021

Our meeting will be held at the Pipke Park pavilion starting at 10 a.m.  We plan to let everyone socialize until 10:30 when the business meeting will start.

Did you spend time on a hobby during the pandemic?  As an icebreaker, we ask you to consider bringing an item to display for our “Covid Craft Corner”.  Let’s see how creative a group we are!

The Board has created a Welcome packet for new owners with a letter and several brochures.  We are in the process of reaching out to meet new neighbors.  We also hope that owners who rent their property will keep a folder available for their guests.  We will have these available at the meeting.

Our business meeting will include election of officers and discussion of some of the items of concern that members have contacted us about over the past year.

After the meeting, plan to stay for lunch.  Instead of our usual potluck, we are asking everyone to bring their own picnic lunch.  The VVLA will supply cold beverages.

Please support our efforts by attending!

2021 Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting is set for Saturday, July 17 starting at 10 a.m. at Pipke Park.  The building there has garage doors that open on both sides to provide an open air environment.  We will have a short business meeting followed by a social hour  and picnic lunch.

The Discovery Center has been coordinating a project to create an accurate record of lake levels since 2009.  Van Vliet Lake has been at relatively high levels the last few years.  This spring we are starting out with lower water so it will be interesting to see what happens this summer.

Slow-No-Wake Rules

 

The Town of Presque Isle has an ordinance that prohibits any motorboat from operating faster than slow-no-wake speed within 200 feet of any lake shoreline.  Click the link below to read the details.

Several years ago, the VVLA posted this map at our landing to give people a visual image of what that means on our lake.  Take a moment to look at the map and get a sense of where the 200 foot line is along the shoreline.

Code of Ordinances: Chapter 500, Subchapter 501 – Motorboats
