Memorial Day Weekend Reminders


Make sure your guests have your 4-digit code and know how to use it at the Gate Directory. Using the 4-digit code less than a minute to let your guests in remotely vs using the name look-up function which takes several minutes.

Remind your guests that if they cannot reach you and there are cars waiting behind you use the u-turn lane to your left to exit and then re-enter the guest lane.

Observe the stop sign, wait your turn as the gate system allows only one car to safely pass under the gate arm. The association is not liable for damage caused by not allowing the gate arm to drop from the car in front of you before you enter the 4-digit code to request entrance.


You must have your 2020 sticker on every watercraft you own.

Blessing of the Boats & Community Center Public Bathroom

ILPOA Members:

Since we’ve become aware of the COVID-19 virus and have utilized the directives from the CDC, the State of Missouri, and Crawford County to address the concerns and safety of ILPOA’s members, guests, and vendors.  The ILPOA Board has tried to error on the side of caution when addressing how we conduct business, do our work, and with community club meetings and events.

As much as we would all like to see things return to normal we’ve had to take steps to ensure the safety of our community.  As a result, this continues to impact upcoming events and how we utilize our facilities.

Blessing of the Boats:

Based upon the input from our community using the voting feature within Nextdoor we asked if our members wanted to do the Blessing of the Boats as we would normally do on Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July Weekend, or Cancel the Event.  More than half of the people who responded to the poll wanted us to Delay or Cancel the event.

We have decided it would be prudent to delay this year’s Blessing of the Boats to the 4th of July Weekend with the understanding that this is contingent on the further relaxing of guidelines by the CDC, State of Missouri, and Crawford County.

ILPOA Community Center Public Facilities:

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recommends that public bathrooms be cleaned/sanitized 1-2 times per day due to the COVID-19 virus.  Unfortunately, currently, we do not have a service provider that is willing to take on the responsibility to ensure our exterior public bathroom is clean and safe to be used by our members and guests.

Unfortunately, we have no choice but to keep the bathroom closed until further notice.  As the CDC changes its recommendation we can then reconsider re-opening the outside public bathroom at the Community Center.

The Marina has also informed us they will not have a public bathroom available either.  So as the holiday and summer weekends are upon us, please make sure if you and your family intend on using the beach that you keep this information in mind and plan ahead.  


I Scream … You Scream … We All Scream for Ice Cream

Nothing says Summer like the music of the Ice Cream truck echoing throughout our community. Starting next week on Tuesday and Saturday late in the afternoon and continuing until September, the Ice Cream Truck will be once again driving around our community with many treats to tantalize your test buds.

Keep in mind we still need to be careful while the COVID-19 virus is still a threat. The Ice Cream Truck will be doing its part to bring you your treats safely. They have added a protective screen to the truck, masks will be worn by the driver and they will frequently sanitize surfaces during breaks.

Don’t let you guard down even through your excited by the tasty treat you are going to buy. We recommend wearing a mask to protect you and the Ice Cream Truck driver. In addition, practice Social Distancing putting at least six (6) feet between you and the next person in line.

Enjoy your Ice Cream but most importantly do it safely!
