Kids Fishing Derby Results

Rescheduling the fishing derby by a week, didn’t make a lot of difference in the number of kids showing up at Hammer Lake on June 27 from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

First place was Nathan King, second place Destiny Lovett, third place Loral Rogers, fourth place Jayden Sims, and fifth place was Alex Jones. The catch of the day were two large catfish and one medium-sized bass.

Helpers were Lydia Eilerman and her Dad, Dave Fourman, Jerry Spaeth, and Alice Forte, the tournament director. For her 4-H project, Lydia Eilerman helped count fish (22 buckets full), aided as a safety monitor, and distributed prizes.

The Marine Lakes Management Committee and Bass Club donated trophies and prizes. All that participated that day went home with a prize.

Women’s Club Crystal Ball

Following the LWC program planning session, many suggestions were made and about 10 were selected for the new year beginning in September.

To not let the cat out of the bag, I will only share that they have a couple road trips, a special salad luncheon, a tour to a stained glass studio, a canal boat ride, some very interesting speakers, and a trip to a historical farmhouse. Does that peek your interest, Lakengren ladies?

During their recent meeting, 30 members viewed the movie entitled “Calendar Girls”. Can you imagine what they have planned for 2016?

Cheryl Taylor announced LWC will hold a fall/winter boutique and bake sale on Sept. 10. Taylor suggests donated clothing items should sandwich into that seasonal range, and to start cleaning your closets now for back-to-school casual.

Jan Weaver reported Lakengren ladies should come prepared for a carry-in picnic at the Club House on August 5 at noon. Bring a casserole to share and arrive by 11 a.m. if you want to go for a pontoon boat ride. The new program booklets will be distributed at that time.

CLC Meeting News

Dave Cortner is reminding all Christmas Lights Committee members that this month’s meeting will be held on July 23, a week later than usual. A vacation took precedence, but be sure Cortner will be calling in all the ranks when he returns.

A reminder from Cortner is that tickets are still available to purchase for a chance on the Sundolphin 8 foot open kayak on display at the Lodge. You may contact Rick McMahan or Mike Schleich for tickets. The winning ticket will be pulled at the Cornhole Tournament on Aug. 8 at the marina.

Concert Series Continues

With three summer concerts under their belt, the A & E Committee is inviting residents to attend the performance of The Kelly Crank Band on Thursday, July 16 at 7 p.m. at the marina shelter. If country music is your style, Kelly and her band members will supply your favorite country tunes.

Operation Garden Club

Dick Shank has now turned over the presidential duties for the remainder of this year to Anne Schleich. Schleich was the program coordinator for their recent trip/tour to the Dayton VA Medical Center Grotto Gardens. These combined May-June meetings were a definite highlight of the year.

On July 21, Rainelle Tusing will be program coordinator when the club carpools to Lantis-Geeting Road to learn all about “Garden Sheds” from Sue Anne Barber.
