Signs of spring are finally surfacing. Docks are back the lake. Fishermen have returned. A few hardy water skiers have even braved the cold water. Now if the leaves would just turn green!

Spring is a good time to browse the OMLCIA website. Read the public content. Then login to your account and review your profile. Change email and addresses, if necessary. Add some of your favorite lake photos.

Stan Atha will be on the lake Saturday, May 10, weather permitting. If the weather doesn't cooperate, he will be here Sunday, May 11.
