Lake Restoration

Lake Lovers,

Over the next two months, you will be receiving a letter inviting you to a zoom meeting to explain the issues surrounding our lake condition and possible solution. We want to encourage you to read all the information—ask questions—and then commit to a gift to save our lake. We can only accomplish this five year task with your support and generosity. We had hoped to have a series of in person meetings, but the covid restrictions ended that and protection of our residents became our first priority. Please click on the links below and then sign up for one of our zoom meetings.

Mike Schwartze & Ed Weston


The Lake Restoration committee is a volunteer group, supported by the following Board Members: Mary Beth Huffman, Chris Pinaire, and Scott Rockafeller

MIKE SCHWARTZ: Mike & Chris have been property owners for two years now, having purchased Chris's parents home and totally remodeled it, added a new dock and new sea wall. Chris and her family have been owners here since 1967. I've been coming down since 1972 (the year i met my wife), we married in 1974, we have four children and soon to be five grandchildren. I've worked in the Kitchen and Bath industry since 1969 and retired in 2019. We love this lake and this community. We are here to stay and want to do what we can to help.

EDWARD R. WESTON: Ed and Nancy have been lake owners for the past 8 years, renovating their lake home; putting in a new dock; and making a major addition. Ed is a retired United Methodist Pastor, having served 43 years in the local church. He is currently serving as the Director of Development for a UMC related organization. Ed has a BS in Business, Masters of Divinity and a MBA. Ed and Nancy call Belleville, Illinois their home. They have four married children and nine grandchildren. “We love the lake” and enjoy spending our free time here, especially fishing and boating. We want to see our community go forward.
