A Letter From Your Association Board
As an association, we had our work cut out for us in 2015. We worked in conjunction with the SLEC on important issues concerning protection of our lakes and water quality. We also continued to enhance the beauty, usefulness, and safety of our lake through weed control, supporting boater education courses, and marking areas of low water levels.
While it was a year of hard work, it was also a year full of fun. The 3rd annual Crooked Lake Freedom 5 (presented by the Crooked Lake Association and Captain’s Cabin Restaurant) had over 475 participants and raised over $13,500 for the association. This is an incredible feat that wouldn’t be possible without you, the hard work of many, and the financial support from so many local business owners. We look forward to your help in hitting our goal of 500+ participants in 2016. In addition to the Crooked Lake Freedom 5, 2015 marked the return of the Crooked Lake fireworks show! Although we didn’t quite expect the amount of preparation it would take to get the pontoons ready for the show and were certainly caught off guard when one of our pontoons sank, members of our association along with some special volunteers, helped us pull it together and make the show a success. A special thank you is due to the family that allowed us to use their personal fireworks pontoon at no cost and the Lake James Association for lending us one of their back-up pontoons, without hesitation, at the last minute. The company we selected, Camtor LLC, out-did themselves and put on a spectacular show for the lake to enjoy! And you, our association members and property owners, made this financially possible with over $8000 in donations. With your support, we look forward to making this an annual tradition that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
Crooked Lake is a great place to call home! We love our lake community and the sense of belonging and enjoyment it brings to so many. We appreciate your ongoing support through your membership, volunteerism, and donations.
Thank you for helping us make Crooked Lake a place where magical memories are made~

We now accept Pay Pal as an available payment method. We can accept payments for dues, donations, and race registration payments. We have had several members suggest that we should accept payments online. As always we still will accept cash and checks. For those who are not familiar with Pay-Pal, it is a way for us to accept payments online and also accept credit card payments. If you do not have a Pay-Pal account we can still accept your major credit card for payment. You can print a form and fill out the credit card information and send in for payment. We will also be at the Memorial Day meeting and be able to swipe your credit card for payment. We hope you find this to be helpful and convenient.
