The Distinguished Lake Citizen Award Committee wants to remind Lake residents to be thinking about possible candidates for this coming seasonal award.
Eligible candidates are individuals who reside full or part time on Tippecanoe, James or Oswego Lakes for at least five (5) years and are members of the Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners Association.
We are looking to honor that individual or family who has made a positive impact on the quality of life at the lake. Think about that person in your neighborhood or landing that seems to be the “living” example of an individual who cares for the environment, our properties and the well-being of fellow residents; maybe it’s the landing director that always takes the time to represent his/her neighbors at the meetings and is actively involved with the Association.
Last year’s recipient, Dave Swart, was honored for his stewardship of the Lake and the years of spirit and leadership. So give some thought to the residents of your landing. The Committee will certainly welcome all recommendations.
Committee Members: Connie Anthony, Gary Calhoun, Mark Ennes, Mike Lattimer & Jeff Thornburgh
