Annual Meeting Spring 2021 

We held our 2021 Annual Meeting on May 8th at Camp Ihduhapi’s outdoor pavilion. We had a great turnout with about thirty people in attendance. It was nice to see everyone in person, this being our first in-person event since the pandemic began. Our president, Tom Blanck, ran the meeting and reported on a number of items relating to our two guiding principles, Water Quality and the Lake’s Use and Enjoyment. Chris Dahlburg, our Treasurer reported on membership and financial information and Pat Wulff, Founding Board Member, gave us an update on AIS and reported on various PSCWC watershed projects.


Board Director Member elections where held at the meeting. We had six positions up for re-election with five members who were interested in re-election and one who stepped down. One new resident volunteered and was elected to become a board member. We are happy to have twelve diverse and talented board members currently serving.
