SLA Annual Meeting/Picnic

It’s time again to renew friendships and meet some of our new back lot and lakefront owners. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, August 24, 2021 when the SLA will host its annual Potluck Picnic. We will meet at the pavilion in the Midland County Sanford Lake Park. Be sure to have your dish in the lineup by 6 p.m. when the potluck meal begins.

NOTE: This is our annual membership meeting/picnic. You must be an SLA member to attend. In addition for those that are lake or back lot that would like to join, you can do so prior to the meeting. Current members can also renew their membership.

This year our guest speakers will be Representatives Annette Glenn and Roger Hauck.  They will be speaking about the current dam safety and funding for dam repairs bills that are going through the House and Senate. Please bring any questions you have regarding the bills to the meeting for a Q&A. There will also be a letter writing campaign set up at the meeting so you can sign your own letter to be sent to our legislative representatives. 

Attendees will enjoy pulled pork sandwiches provided by the SLA; utensils and paper products will also be provided. Please bring your own beverage, a side dish to share, and a neighbor who would like to join the SLA.

Membership currently stands at 291 members and is comprised of lake lot and back lot home owners of Sanford Lake. Our purpose is to provide a consolidated voice for the common good of the lake community; promote lake community awareness regarding lake restoration efforts and concerns; support efforts to restore and maintain the lakefront; act as a liaison between the lake community and township; village and county governments as well as other governmental agencies; and to partner with Four Lakes Task Force to facilitate the restoration of the lake. 

The picnic gives SLA members the opportunity to ask questions and get better informed about issues impacting the Lake.

As usual there will be a table with Sanford Lake gear for sale including our new T-shirts, Sweatshirts, vehicle window decals and yard signs as well as a table where old and new neighbors can renew their membership or join or the SLA for an annual fee of $30.00 per household. Proceeds from our gear sale will go the FLTF to restore Sanford Lake.
