We are proud to announce that we've reached our membership goal for 2019.  The financial support from our community has been outstanding, led by the 100% participation from the Island, Pan Yack Park, and the Regency Condos.  The keychain incentive has been popular, and we are pleased to welcome 23 members to the Wave Makers group for donations of $100 or more.  To all of our members who support the mission to improve Eagle Lake, we thank you!  Not yet a member?  Our online donation page is just a click away.
Last year, our board of directors voted to donate a wooden kayak rack to the Eagle Lake Manor neighborhood.  With the help of Mike Heft, Chuck Glover, and Mike and Karlene Wanke, the rack has been built and installed in the beach area north of Peninsula Drive.  It is available for use free of charge by any resident in the Manor, including those without lakeshore properties.  Be sure to secure your kayak or canoe when it is placed on the rack.  Contact a member of the Manor Community Association if you have questions.
The repair work at the Zinnen Restoration Garden is 100% complete.  The split rail fence has been replaced, and extensive weeding and mulching is finished.  Our Zinnen coordinators, Mike and Juanita Yost, wish to thank Pan Yack residents Bob and Sue McEnroe for their volunteer time and commitment to the project.  Copper plant signage was added and the new Don Hermes bench has been installed.  Ongoing weeding efforts provide excellent volunteer opportunities.  Visit the Contact Us page if you would like to help at Zinnen.
Our incentive gift has been very popular, and is keeping our Treasurer busy but smiling all the way to the bank.  We value each and every donation from our members, and the response to our membership appeal has energized our efforts to serve the Eagle Lake community.  More than 85 members have already donated $25 or more to receive a keychain as a thank you.  We're close to our membership goal, but need a few more renewals.  You can also add to a previous donation to reach $25 or more and receive a keychain.
The annual membership drive is underway, with some new wrinkles for 2019.  Our basic dues remain at $15 per household, a reasonable amount that we hope will attract new members while encouraging current members to renew.  All donors of $25 or more will receive an Eagle Lake floating keychain.  Anyone contributing $100 or more will be invited to special events and earn recognition as an Eagle Lake Wave Maker.  Please click here to pay dues and support our mission.
