President's Message

Dear Crystal Lake Enthusiast,

I hope this finds you in great health and great spirits.

The lake was officially ice free as of Thursday, April 5th. Since then, merganser ducks, loons, & tundra swans have been making Crystal Lake their playground.

Your Board is working hard behind the scenes to ensure that this coming summer is another memorable one. Speaking of that, we are always looking for a couple of energetic souls to join the CLAA Board. Let me know if interested.

In 2016, only 52% of Crystal Lake property owners were members of CLAA. After a gentle push, 68% of homeowners were members last year. Better yet, 2/3 of the 2017 membership joined as CRYSTAL CLUB members. Please consider a Crystal Club membership. Additionally, please reach out to your neighbors & encourage them to join the association. The membership form is easily printed from

An annual highlight for many of us is Venetian Night. This year’s event is scheduled for June 30th. Parade boats will gather at the big island at 7:30 p.m. & follow the Grand Marshall around the lake. Carl RickmeierFireworks will follow at dusk. You will notice on this year’s membership form that you are able to directly contribute to the CLAA Fireworks Fund. Sponsorship levels of: Red ($1,000), White ($500) & Blue ($250) are listed for your consideration.

This year’s Memorial Day meeting/party will again be at Siebken’s Saloon at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 27th. Complimentary beer, wine & appetizers will be served at 7:15 p.m., so please arrive early.

All my best and see you around the lake,
Carl Rickmeier, CLAA President
