2021 Friends of the Lake Newsletter

We have now faced over a year of living with the Covid-19 pandemic together. There is light at the end of this long dark tunnel - thanks to the rollout of vaccines and all the hard work and dedication of our health care providers, first responders and front-line workers. This has been a world-changing event which will bring new challenges to our lives as we work our way forward.

We are grateful that you, the members of Friends of the Lake, were so supportive last year, even though our events had to be cancelled or altered and our anniversary party delivered via Zoom. With any luck, we will soon be able to gather again to strengthen our friendships and together, help this beautiful lake.

An unanticipated side effect of the pandemic was a large increase in boat traffic of all kinds on the lake last summer. Where we once saw a small group or two of kayakers, it seemed like herds of them went by daily… weather permitting. The number of pontoon and other pleasure boats also seemed to increase dramatically. We believe that this trend will continue; it was only a matter of time before the beauty and fun of Lake Lillinonah was to be discovered. We must all continue to be considerate of each other out there – please be aware of your wakes, your noise, and the safety and enjoyment of others.

We are also aware that we have many neighbors who are new to the lake; welcome! For those who have become members, thank you. If you have new neighbors who may be unaware of FOTL, please pass along our newsletter to let them know what we are up to. They can sign up easily online at

We are pleased to present this year’s newsletter; thanks to your membership, much work continues in support of this great resource. As always, let us know if you have any questions or comments, or would like us to tackle any issues you find to be important and helpful to our lake.
