Events Bring Friends & Neighbors Together in 2017
LAKE ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
Members gathered in June 2017 for the Annual Membership Meeting. Outgoing Board members Joann Meyer from Sunset Terrace and Jiselle Graves from Rustic Ridge were recognized for their time and dedication to the LFARCC. Joann (below, right) gifted the Lake Association with a beautiful quilt table runner to be used as a fundraiser at the annual Lake Francis Picnic. Jennifer Severson (below, left) was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award and a gift certificate from Lantto’s Store for her work on the Association’s communications and website. In other business, the membership elected the slate of Board candidates, heard the financial report, approved by-law changes and heard and update from Mike Housman, Meeker County Commissioner. The next annual meeting will be held June 30, 2018.
