The Glen Lake Association (GLA) Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, August 11th, 2018 at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church, 4902 W. MacFarlane Rd., Glen Arbor.

The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. with educational sessions, followed by the State of the Lake report and member recognition awards. Lunch will be provided for all attendees immediately following the meeting. Free tree seedlings will be available for all attendees too!

Educational topics will include:

  • Swimmer’s Itch update by GLA lake biologist, Rob Karner.
  • Overview of the Glen Lake Watershed Guardian Program and introduction of our new, on-staff Guardian Ambassador, Tricia Denton.
  • Opportunities for members to make an impact through GLA involvement.

Members will have the opportunity to vote for new board members who are filling vacancies for terms that have expired or those seeking a second term. A nominating committee has identified qualified members and made their recommendations for the available positions. The GLA appreciates your participation on this important matter.

Bring a friend or neighbor, particularly someone who has never attended the annual meeting. 

For additional information, contact the Glen Lake Association office at 231-334-7645 or visit glenlakeassociation.org.
