Lake Wedowee Area Upcoming Events
An important aspect of being .a member of the LWPOA includes volunteering to help with many of our ongoing events and services, some of which are shown below:
The annual LWPOA general membership meeting will be Saturday, Sept. 26th, 9 - 10:30 a.m. CDT, on the patio at Wedowee Marine South at the Highway 48 Bridge. This year, all of our committees will be reporting on how they “protect your playground.” We also will be soliciting your ideas on what the association and its members might do together to improve the lake and surrounding communities.
The meeting will be outdoors and ask that you wear a face covering and maintain a safe six-foot social distance. As a further health precaution, the association will not be offering any food or drink, but feel free to bring your own cup of coffee, water, etc. The marina restaurant will open for lunch after the meeting and we urge you to go downstairs, grab a bite, and watch a college football game on the big TVs.
Unfortunately, Alabama Power has suspended all Lake Clean-Up activities for 2020. Therefore, the LWPOA will not be conducting our usual big lake clean-up operation this fall. However, homeowners are encouraged to clean the shorelines near their homes of any debris. Winter drawdown is the best time to conduct your own lake clean-up. We will be distributing trash bags at the membership meeting. If you can’t attend the meeting, send a message to Frank Varisco at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time to get some bags. Trash collected can be disposed of with your household garbage collection as we are unable to provide a central collection dumpster this year.
If you haven’t renewed your membership for this year, we’ll be accommodating renewals at the meeting. We are working on an updated membership directory and urge you to make sure your membership is current to ensure your listing in the directory. Also, bring a non-member guest from your neighborhood to hear what the Association does for everyone. We need as many members as possible as we head into the final phases of lake license renewal. The future of lake operations might depend on our ability to speak with a large unified voice.
It has been a tough year for getting together safely. The threat of the coronavirus has forced the LWPOA to cancel the Kids Fishing Day, the annual Summer Picnic, and now the Lake Clean-Up. We urge you to come out for the general membership meeting on Sept. 26th and reacquaint yourselves with friends in the Association. We can do it! See you there.
