(1) Say Hey at Bay Day!  Enjoy a live band, talent show, bouncy castle, a downtown farmer’s market, face painting, balloon artistry and sidewalk sales all while completing your last minute shopping at the start of the May long weekend.  Stop by the KAPOA tent to say hello, sign up your boat for the 2023 Poker Run, renew your membership and discuss open KAPOA positions needing someone just like you!

PLUS!  Find out about the Bancroft Area Stewardship Council’s (BASC) offer of a free native planting /shoreline rehabilitation to 1 KAPOA waterfront owner!  Every year BASC chooses a couple of local lakes to offer a free shoreline planting of up to 100 trees and/or shrubs to one lakefront property owner FREE OF CHARGE!  We’re running a contest, come to Bay Day and learn more or check out the details in our KAPOA Spring Newsletter 2024 – Kamaniskeg Area Property Owners Association.

AND FINALLY! The Carson Trout Lepine & Greenan Lakes Association (CTLG) will be at the booth beside KAPOA and will be accepting lead tackle to reduce lead related mortality of our local loon population.  Bring your tackle to their booth and you will be eligible for a prize valued at ~ $200!!

While there will not be a sailing race this year, contact Bill Cahoon at bcahoon@rogers.com to join in on a “sail by” the beach and some time on the water with the KAPOA sailing community.
