Steve Grotbo, President

The elections to the board are held every year at the annual pork chop dinner on May 4th. During the elections, a third of the board is voted in for a three year term that starts immediately after the election. Following that, the officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasure) are voted in at the next board meeting. The board meets each month alternating between the first Tuesday and Thursday of the month from February to October at the Dassel Rod and Gun Club. The board meetings start promptly at 7 PM and last about an hour. Each board member chooses which committee(s) to be part of and contributes in this area to improve the quality of the lake for all the members.

For this season, we have four positions open and three people running, so not much of an election yet. Please let any board member know if you wish to be on the ballot. We try to run a fair election, but only those in attendance at the annual pork chop dinner can vote (any member can win). So far the people running are:
  1) Ron Bubany (incumbent)
  2) Sharon Daniels (incumbent)
  3) Cindy Hewitt
  4) Your Name Here

Tom Hauer joined the board in 2011 and is not seeking another term. Dean Shaner is also leaving the board after being on since 2016. We thank Tom and Dean for all of the help over the many years.

A lot of activity is happening this season. Be sure to read the newsletters, check your email, and look on Facebook to keep caught up on what is happening. Here are some highlights.
  - Lake map is now complete and being used.
    o DNR will be making this data available to public.
    o Watershed committee is using data to know where to focus efforts.
    o A laminated map will be provided to dues paying members later this spring.
  - Vegetation committee is focusing where milfoil was found on the lake.
  - Lake Washington sponsored U of M Zebra Mussel research is coming to conclusion.
  - Supporting "Walleye Population Estimate and Angler Study".
