JULY 2014 – LMLA - President’s Message
Hello LMLA Members:
Well summer has finally arrived. And it’s hard to believe that the 4th of July Independence Day Holiday has already occurred. Enjoy your outside activities and being on the Lake. This year is going by so fast.
July 16th LMLA Membership Meeting: Our next membership meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, commencing at 7:00 pm. The meeting will again be held at the Muskego - Moose Lodge (located at Janesville Rd. and Crowbar Rd.). Our speaker will be Officer Gary Mroteck of the Muskego Police Dept. and he will discuss boat patrol issues/items of concern noted so far this year. Light snacks and refreshments will also be served.
Other Subject Items Include:
LMLA $5K Donation for the Badertscher Preserve – At the July 8th Muskego Common Council meeting, LMLA contributed a $5,000 donation to the City of Muskego. This sum is for acquisition/development of the Badertscher Preserve and brings the total to $20,000 paid to the City from LMLA’s commitment of $50,000. This property is approximately 100+ acres in size and is located due west of the Lake Additionally, Tom Zagar (Muskego’s Conservation Coordinator/City Forester) has also offered a tour of this property to LMLA members. The details have not been worked out yet but will certainly keep everyone informed regarding this tour.
Solar Lighted Buoys – There are three (3) buoys with solar lights flashing away in the evening hours. This will assist evening watercraft users in not colliding with the buoys. We have been receiving feedback that these flashing lite buoys are most appreciated by evening boat users. We also appreciate the partnership with the Muskego Police Dept. installing these solar lights to these navigational buoys.
Idle Isle Restoration Update – LMLA member Lisa Niles and her team continue to remove old brush and spread out new mulch at the boat launch area. We have also been having several volunteers come forward to volunteer their time as well to keep this landscaping looking nice. Certainly appreciate these volunteer efforts. Next time you are at Idle Isle, take a look at the improvements that have been made – quite impressive.
Walleye Stocking Fall 2014 – LMLA member Bob Bueckers is keeping in contact with the WDNR regarding this walleye stocking project. Bob was informed that the WDNR plan to stock a sizable quantity of walleye this fall. These walleye will be in the 6 inch length range (e.g. higher survival rates).
Muskego Community Fest – Aug. 2015 – LMLA member Wally Spitzer represents us on the Community Fest Executive Board. Wally still needs volunteers for working at the Community Fest. Wally will provide more information at our meeting. This is a revenue source for LMLA. Thank you to all LMLA members and families (and Wally) for giving of your time!!!
Plan on attending the July 16th LMLA membership meeting at the Muskego-Moose Lodge commencing at 7:00 pm. Enjoy the Lake – Be Safe!!!
