Hello Caribou Lakers! We’ve had a great start to the year with the weed harvester and have significantly reduced the number of weeds in the lake so far this summer. Unfortunately, last week we had an operator error which required the harvester to go back to the factory in Wisconsin for repairs which will take 2-3 weeks. If that’s the case, we should have the harvester back out pulling weeds by the middle to end of August to finish out the season. While the machine is down for repairs, we’ll also have other routine maintenance performed in order to ensure a great start in 2024. If you have any questions or would like more information, please reach out to JoWain Wallin, CLA President.
I know everyone is getting ready for the annual 4th of July boat parade on beautiful Caribou Lake. Decorate your boat and join in the fun and we will see you at 1:00pm, July 4th, 2023 in the bay by Shady Lane (North of Kehtel Road) to line up. The best decorated boat gets the trophy handed down from last year’s winner. See you there!
Are you ready for some summer fun with your friends and neighbors? We will be having another floatilla of boats meeting and joining up on the lake for bratwurst or hot dog, chips, and dessert. Bring your boat, boat bumpers, and beverage of choice and join the fun from 12:00pm – 2:00pm on Saturday, July 15, 2024. You will see boats joined around the middle of the lake with food ready to go. We encourage you to join with a boat or paddle out safely on your favorite lake equipment; however, if you aren’t able to get to us we will deliver (Call 218-340-4825). See you there! (Note, if there is inclement weather the backup date has been set for the same time on Saturday, July 22, 2024.)
The next annual meeting is scheduled for Saturday, June 3, 2023. This year, we will hold the meeting at the Grand Lake Town Hall (1023 Twig Boulevard – Saginaw, MN 55779). The meeting will be held from 8:30am – 10:30am.
As a member of the community the town hall is free for us to use so we will change locations to save the Association money on the room rental. For those that haven’t been there, we will make sure there is ample signage to direct you to the hall. It is easy to navigate and basically just a right hand turn at the end of the hallway where you enter.
This year is the election of the Secretary position. Carrie Romundstad’s 2-year term is up and we are looking for another person to step up and join our amazing board. You will get to do many fun activities supporting our lake and communications like these!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Are you ready for some summer fun with your friends and neighbors? This year’s event will be a floatilla of boats meeting and joining up on the lake for bratwurst or hot dog, chips, and dessert. Bring your boat, boat bumpers, and beverage of choice and join the fun at 3:00pm on Saturday, August 27th. This is our first Annual Caribou Lake Brat-illa Picnic (see what we did there?)! You will see boats joined around the middle of the lake with food ready to go. See you there! (Note, bring your own beverage and watch the page for any updates on changes for inclement weather.)
It is hard to believe the spring season is upon us with the several inches of snow this morning, but we are busy preparing for the upcoming meeting and want to make sure our residents and members are aware of the upcoming meeting planned for Saturday, June 4, 2022 (8:30 – 10:30am) at the old Caribou Lake School (Richard Barlage Sheet Metal Apprentice School). The address is 6279 Industrial Road – Saginaw, MN 55779.
One of the items we would like to vote on are the proposed Caribou Lake Association By-Law changes to bring us current from the original 1982 By-Laws currently in place. For your review are a retyped original and a proposed version that includes the tracked changes.
See you at the meeting Caribou Lake Friends & Neighbors!
Annual Caribou Lake Picnic
Looking forward to getting the picnic back and meeting with friends and neighbors this year. Please join us on Friday, September 10, 2021 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at the Sheet Metal Worker’s Labor Building (Old Caribou Lake School) for a family friendly gathering.
It is that time of year again where we invite members/property owners that want their name added to the sign to contact our volunteer craftsman, Jeff Charnes, at 218-729-4559. He coordinates a donation and works with another volunteer craftsman, Paul Manns, for finishing work before adding the names to our legacy sign.
If there is interest in the Association pursuing a similar sign for the Birch Point Road or Charles Road areas, please take this SURVEY by August 31, 2021 and we will tally the interest level.
