I think everyone should know how important our volunteers are to our community. Last week when we found the lake had toxicity problems due to the algae bloom it was decided we needed to post warnings at the launch areas and use reader boards to be sure all knew of the problem. The question then arose about the people living on the lake. How would they know if they don't use the launches? Immediately volunteers from lake management came forward and offered to hand deliver flyers to every lake home to handle the problem. That is a lot of walking. They deserve thanks along with all the others who volunteer so much of their time helping your community.
