Welcome back to Deer Lake Summer 2020! We hope you are all healthy. This has been the strangest Spring in recent memory. COVID19 has impacted us all in a variety of ways; from missed graduations and birthdays, births and deaths, and general isolation. The social injustices on top of the pandemic are salt in an already open wound.
In light of the pandemic we have made changes to our normal slate of events, please review the Events page to see what is still taking place and what has been canceled.
We will attempt to make things as normal as possible while still keeping in mind the health and safety of others. We encourage social distancing and the wearing of masks when you are with people with whom you do not live.
As Fall approaches we would like to thank everyone for the support of our limited slate of events this summer. Both the Fireworks and Music on the Lake were very successful and were able to be held without putting anyone in danger of being exposed to the coronavirus. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and hope to have a full slate of events for the Summer of 2021.
Please remember to inspect your equipment for zebra mussels as you pull your boats and docks out of the water. If you think you have zebra mussels on your equipment, please place the suspected mussel in a bag with some lake water and call Joan Leedy or John Wright to have the sample collected and sent to a lab for verification. We can try and minimize the spread of zebra mussels if we are all vigilant in our efforts. We want everyone to have a safe and healthy winter and come back to Deer Lake for next year’s festivities!
2019 Here We Come!
Announcing our 2019 Schedule of Events for Deer Lake. Please check the Schedule Page for the most recent changes.
We need to really help boost awareness of invasive species in our lake. We know we have Curly Leaf Pondweed and we have more Zebra Mussels. We need to continue to be vigilant in looking for, identifying and reporting these invasive species. We will try and keep you updated here and on Facebook page at Deer Lake, WI.
Remember to review the WI boater’s safety rules with all who will be piloting watercraft there may have been some rule changes. Be sure you always have enough Personal Flotation Devices (PFD) on board your boat.
We want everyone one to have a safe and fun summer on the water!
