Snow Lake Association Newsletter www.snowlake.us
This letter is to remind you of our August 10th General Meeting at 9:00am. This newsletter also keeps you informed on what is going on in your lake community.
Hello Everyone, I hope you have enjoyed your summer so far. Wow it sure has gone by fast! We enjoyed a fantastic fireworks display provided by the Lakes Recreation Association with contributions from our very own Snow Lake. Did you make it to the Classic Wooden boat and car show this year? How beautiful all those classics were. There are still many more days to enjoy, get out there and make some memories!!
We as an Association have grown in the last 5 years. The SLCA board has worked hard and our membership has continued to grow. We thank our residents for your support and hope you can see the changes. These general meetings are your chance to get involved. We hope that you will participate, and we welcome your ideas at these meetings. We need people who care about this lake community, to step up and volunteer to help.
The SLCA board recently voted to make changes to our scholarship program. These changes came from a member’s idea several years ago. We will now open this scholarship program not only to, High School seniors, but residents who are currently attending a 2-year, 4 year, or a technical school who are looking for ways to help cover their education each year. This scholarship may be renewable if applicant re applies each year. As always only One scholarship is available. You may apply for this scholarship at any time. This information and application are available on our website. This Topic will be discussed at the general meeting.

We the officers, representatives, and you as members of The Snow Lake Cottager’s Association are dedicated to preserving one of the most beautiful lakes in Steuben County, our very own Snow Lake. Each year it becomes more important to work together to meet the Environmental challenges of our lake. We as property owners need to do the responsible work needed to maintain and care for OUR lake. This is where your membership is essential in this battle. Over the course of four years we have worked very hard at increasing membership, lake signage, quality of lake waters, invasive weed control, and building a community feeling again on Snow Lake. We want to hear from you. Let us know what community ideas you have or would like to take part in on Snow Lake. In the past we have had Reflections on the Lake, a history presentation of the lake with boat rides and home tours. Snow Lake Night Out was introduced last year with dinner at local restaurants and prize give-a-ways. Contact Ami Absher with your ideas. (419) 460-4090
This past year an Environmental Lake Study was done by Scott Banfield of Aquatic Enhancement. We will go over the results at the June 8th General Meeting. Spraying for purple loosestrife was completed this year. The cost of study and spraying alone was over $10,000.00. We applied this January for a L.A.R.E Grant in order to receive financial help in continuing these efforts.
