Our next activity in the Papakeechie Lake Wetland Preservation area will be Saturday, June 10th, from 10:00 am, to 12:00 am. For more information, please click on the below link.
On Friday, May 12th, for treatment of the curly leaf weeds, chemicals (Sonar/Avast) were applied to the lake. Sonar/Avast has no effect on fish, animals, or humans. Yellow signs have been posted around the lake and marker buoys are floating at various locations within lake. The weeds will die, and then, after a week or two, the dead weed will begin to float on the lake’s surface. The weed harvester will be put in lake and we will begin the weed removal process. Due to the chemical being a systemic herbicide, you should not use lake water for irrigation of lawns for 30 days (June 11th).
The 2017 PPA Annual Meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August, 12th. Election for the following will be held at the meeting: Vice President, Treasurer, and representatives from districts; 1, 3, 5, 5A and 7. If you are, or you know of anyone who is interested in running for a position, please let us know.
Message from the President
As your newly elected association president, I can truly say that it is both an honor and a privilege. I do not take this responsibility to the PPA and its members lightly. I accept this appointment with pride and will give my best efforts to make you proud to have selected me. I will devote my time and myself to the obligations and the duties of this office.
Beginning in the late 1960s, I have had the privilege of enjoying the enormous satisfaction of coming to this lake, and being a part of its beauty and serenity. In 2001 My family fulfilled a longtime dream of owning a place of our own on this pristine lake. I am no stranger to our association and it’s Board. In the summer of 2008, I was elected and have since served as the PPA Board Secretary.
With the cooperation of my fellow members, I am fully confident that we can accomplish much in our effort to conquer our challenges, and reach our goals. I am counting on your support in these efforts.
Thanks for your vote of confidence,
Pat Ebetino, PPA President
