“It makes me feel good to see what the association has become since we started it in 1997,” Flournoy told the crowd of 150. Along with friends James Toole and Lane Owings, they formed the LWPOA to give lake landowners a united voice in response to a proposed reservoir in Georgia that could take water from the Tallapoosa River and send it to Atlanta.


The founding members wanted the LWPOA to be much more than that, so the Articles of Incorporation stated the group’s purpose is “to improve and protect the quality of Lake Wedowee, and to promote the general welfare and prosperity of the residents of the Lake Wedowee area of East Central Alabama.” That charter, on file with the Office of the Alabama Secretary of State, guides the group to this day.

LWPOA filled a widely recognized community need, quickly growing from the original nine founders to 250 members in the first year. It now comprises nearly 500 member families around the lake.

The association’s activities include liaison with business, governments and Alabama Power, water quality testing, improving lake safety, annual Lake Clean Up, Kids Fishing Day, fish habitat enhancement, the Fox Creek Birding trail, and social functions. The association has been an active participant in the federal government’s relicensing of the dam and reservoir.

The dinner featured an excellent meal by Atlanta’s Finest Catering and music by Jerry Rogers. The LWPOA will continue to celebrate 25 years of service to members and the community over the course of 2022.

Founding member Terry Flournoy (r) and 2022 LWPOA Chairman Tom Lettieri read the announcement of the association’s first organizational meeting from an April 1997 issue of The Randolph Leader. Flournoy is one of two surviving members of the original nine founders.
