A Letter From Your Association Board


It's hard to believe that 2016 is in the books. Time continues to fly. The summer, albeit seemingly short, was wonderful at Crooked Lake with plenty of warm sun and a healthy amount of rain. That makes for a perfect summer on the water and in our beautiful surrounding fields, forests and farms.

There was excellent participation in our annual, lake-wide garage sale. The Sandbar Music Festival, independent of the Association, was packed with attendees. Our Assocation Board of Directors raised funds and organized our second return-of-the-Crooked Lake fireworks show and it was again one to talk about (but not because of sinking pontoons this time). We lit up the sky! The 5th annual Freedom 5 Run and Walk set records. This is our largest fundraiser each year and 2016 was no exception; we raised over $12,000 and had nearly 500 participants. This event has quickly become a tradition for generations of Crooked Lake families, as well as for folks from around 101 Lakes Country! A special thank you goes out to our loyal sponsors, volunteers, and all who participated – we'll see you next year.

On a final note, all of us on the Board and our residents thank our outgoing President, Trishia Stites, who stepped down as President but will remain a member of the Board after five outstanding years. Trish was at the helm for outstanding growth at Crooked Lake and her contributions are invaluable. Thanks, Trish! Dave Rosebrock has some big shoes to fill, but undoubtedly will serve our board well as the incoming President.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Winter and Spring. Happy ice and Spring fishing. We'll see you in May!


Your Crooked Lake Association Board of Directors
