Detailed Description of Job Openings

Note that the current Board decided that events will not happen unless someone other than the board members step forward to co-ordinate them. The PLA will support the event and provide funding.

If you want an event, you are electing yourself coordinator for that event unless someone else steps forward. Currently people have stepped forward to coordinate the garage sale, fireworks, turtle races, Night Time Parade, Halloween children's party and Winter Fest.

Also, a priority will be to find new volunteers for all Board positions to start June 2016. The entire board will not volunteer again next year. If people do not step up, all existing funds will go to the township, none of the current activities will happen and lake residents will lose a united vote in local politics. Bear in mind that we will lose control of anything related to our lake if people do not step up before the end of this year!
