Hope you didn’t miss us too bad over the past few months. A lot happened over the summer perhaps most notable, an algae bloom that began Father’s day and continues to this day. The Devils Lake Water Improvement District and the City of Lincoln City have been busy on several projects that will impact you. We’ll report on these issues more in the future so for now we’d just recommend that you tune in, and share your thoughts with us.
Please complete the attached poll. Stop by our coffee and let us know how you feel about the condition of the lake this summer. Watch our new video “The Greening of Devils Lake” and share your reactions. Bottom-line, we want to encourage you to engage and email us at email@example.com to provide the details of your lake experience.

Summer has passed and fall is upon us. Life on the lake has left most of us feeling a little Green. With that in mind, we thought that we would invite you to another, “Coffee on the Point”. Join us for a mingle with neighbors and engaging conversations.
Nothing fancy just stop by on Sunday October 27th between 10:00am and noon for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat and say hello to a few of your neighbors. We have had so much fun with Potluck on the Point and such frustrations with the condition of the lake, it seems that a little get together wouldn’t be such a bad idea. The coffee will be at Mitch and Dana Moore’s; the A-frame at 2929 NE Loop Drive on Sand Point. Come on by!

The 2013 recreational season on Devils Lake saw lower water levels, warmer water temperatures and the worst algae bloom in memory. The Greening of Devils Lake provides a look at the result of these factors.
Please watch this video. If you spent time at the lake this summer it will look all too familiar. If you’ve been absent see what you missed. It’s time to get involved; email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help.
Please hold Saturday August 3rd at 6:00 pm open to come join us for our Fifth Annual Potluck on the Point. Last year was a great success with over seventy residents of Devils Lake in attendance. Come share some great food and fun with your lakeside neighbors. The get together will be hosted by Mitch and Dana Moore at 2929 NE Loop Drive on Sand Point.
Plan to bring your favorite dish, appetizer, main dish or casserole and join us, with your neighbor and friends for an afternoon of fun. Be sure to mark your calendar today!

If you have been wondering where the Devils Lake Navigator articles have gone lately, don’t fret. We’re taking the summer off while we use and observe the lake. This break was inspired by the wise advice of Thumper who said “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all…” Check back in the Fall for news and updates.
