One of our busiest times of the year for your association focuses on the great 4th of July Holiday celebration. Another amazing fireworks show is planned for July 1 this year, but please remember we do count on your donations to make it a success. If you have not donated yet, there is still time to do so. You can access our online donation option by going to the “Lake Activities” tab at the top of this homepage and click on Fireworks Information. Or bring a donation with you to our Memorial Day meeting.

In addition, the annual flare display will be at 10:00 pm on Monday evening July 3. Flares can be purchased at Rural King in Angola.

The annual Freedom 5 run and walk on July 4th is also in its intensive planning stages. We are always looking for sponsors, those tried and true folks, and new ones, too. This event is a great way to get word out about your business to our local lake families, as well as those who travel some distance to participate. You can scroll down below this update and open a sponsor application form on our homepage. And if you have not yet signed up to run or walk, you can go to the “Lake Activities” tab at the top of this homepage and you will find our Freedom 5 registration form. Please help us make this year’s Freedom 5 another great success for Crooked Lake!

A quick note also regarding complaints we have received regarding boat operators driving inside the marker buoys. Please note this is illegal at any speed unless you are leaving or returning to shore. If you can get the registration number on the side of the boat or pontoon, you can report violators to Steuben County Communications at 260 665 3131. They will forward the report to the DNR or attempt to handle the problem through the Sheriff's Lake Patrols.

You should also know that Republic Services has increased the rate for residential garbage and recycle services by 3% effective July 1, 2017. In other words, for dues paying members of our association, the rate will go from $15.75 to 16.22 per month. That 3% was allowed for in our agreement. And in case you are not aware, lake residents who are not Crooked Lake Association members pay twice that much.

Once again, we send our wishes for a great Summer! Many thanks for your support.
