Thank you for your support over the past year and wow, what a year it was! Your commitment to saving Grand Lake St. Marys influenced key decision-makers to take major steps to clean the lake water and reduce nutrient-rich runoff. You also motivated cutting-edge industries to contribute toward the solution while stimulating the economy with new jobs.
Because of you, Grand Lake St. Marys is on the path to once again being a revered recreational hub, wildlife habitat and economic boon that benefits everyone in the watershed. In 2012, the Lake Improvement Association was able to:
- Raise funds to save Grand Lake St. Marys with the Bar Stool Open, LIA Golf Outing, and Beach Party
- Increase community awareness and education through our website, www.lakeimprovement.com, membership meetings, news alerts, and public relations
- Sponsor the Kids Fishing Derby for disabled children in Auglaize and Mercer Counties
- Communicate with legislators and motivate the emergence of new policies and programs designed to restore Grand Lake St. Marys
