The annual Fish and Royer Lakes flotilla was Friday, July 4th. You can see the fun here.
Should you know of anyone who needs their pier put in this year we know a wonderful young man. He has the time now as his business will pick up in June and does a great job. He has already put in several here on our side. Would appreciate it if you pass the info around.
Applications for the 2014 Fish/Royer Lake Scholarship are now available from TJ Hemlinger, 2270 South 460 East Lagrange IN 46761 (email@example.com).
The $250 scholarship is given annually to a Lake Association member current in his or her dues or a family member who is pursuing an education beyond high school. Included are college studies or trade schools, such as Ivy Tech or cosmetology, for example. The application form is simple and requires a short, one-paragraph answer to the question, “What should the purpose of a lake association be?”
The deadline for applications to be received is May 1, 2014. The Association has budgeted $250 for the scholarship, but last year’s winner received $446.67 due to individual donations by Association members.
In the fall newsletter I discussed the extensive water quality testing and watershed management plan development for the Pigeon River Watershed, which includes our lakes. We continue to design and install best management practices for our agricultural neighbors. These practices will continue to reduce the excessive nutrient and bacterial loading that occurs at our inlets on both lakes. At this point we have identified all the sites that need remediation and the landowners are cooperating with our efforts. Nearly all of the intended best management practices, designed to reduce runoff, will be installed by next fall. If you have any questions concerning the project, please give me a call at 260-350-1943, or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a mortgage on your lake property you most likely have received a notification that you are in a flood plane.
There is a meeting to discuss this.
If you DO have a Mortgage you need to come to:
Learn how to determine if any of your insured structures are in the flood plane and if they are NOT then how to obtain the documentation from FEMA to satisfy the mortgage company that their collateral is not at risk (relatively).
If you do NOT have a mortgage the topic being discussed will be of assistance to you in making an informed decision on your need for flood insurance.

The 2013 natural gas survey has been completed and submitted to NIPSCO’s project engineer, Joe Hartman. This couldn’t have been done without the volunteer help of seven lake association members: Nancy Block, Pam Deetz, T.J. Hemlinger, Ryan Kohlheim, Dave McAlister, Don Stanfield and Cathy Wirth. A gold star and a candy bar go out to them for a job well done.
Mr. Hartman indicated that there would be no decision this year as to a time frame for the project. There are several projects already on the drawing board for the year 2014, and a decision is forthcoming. Doug Bowlby spoke with one of the County Commissioners in regard to the signed petitioners’ interest in having the service and he wants us to keep him abreast as to the future of the project. He would lend his support in our interest. LP gas is a derivative or by product of crude oil refining, and oil prices are always on the rise.
