II. REMINDER:  This Friday!
     Lake Johanna Luminary Ski, Skate, Stride!
     Friday, February 13th, 2015, 7:00pm

You are invited to participate in the 2nd annual Luminary event.  Last year was a glowing success! All lake neighbors are encouraged to line their lakeshore with luminaries or make it glow in some other creative manner.  There are great ideas on YouTube for luminary candles. Please assist neighbors who may be out of town or need help, as well as helping to line areas of shore where there are no homeowners.  
Any lake neighbors are welcome to HOST A STOP.  This can be whatever you envision: a bonfire, goodies to share, cocoa, drinks, chairs to rest on, music, s’mores, chili, anything!  
Action=>: Please email Mari Salveson if you plan to organize a stop or if you have any questions at  Please spread the word!  To friends on and off the lake!  Due to the fact that this is a large community event, it is very unlikely to be cancelled due to weather.  So get started on the luminaries tonight and let Mari know if you’re able to host a social stop point.


Mark your calendar for the LJIS Picnic on Tuesday evening, June 9, at the Island Beach Club, on the northeast corner of Lake Johanna.  The beach and parking can be reached using the access road/bridge at the intersection of Ridgewood Road and Arden Place.  There's no shelter, so if we're rained out, the picnic will be rescheduled at the same time on the following Tuesday, June 16.


Special thanks to Mitch Erickson, with some help from other lakeshore neighbors, for clearing and maintaining a trail around the perimeter of the lake for most of this winter. With such warm weather, it's been widely used and appreciated by many walkers, skaters, skiers, fishers, residents, non-residents, kids, dogs, and wildlife. Thanks also to Mari Salveson and Karen Krebsbach for planning and arranging our very fun and successful social events!
