PLIA President’s Message -2022
As 2021 winds to a close I can’t help but think “where did the time go and how did it go by so fast?” I guess that can be a good thing because it may mean that life resumed its’ normal pace after a year of most things being cancelled. But it may also mean that we were so busy “doing” that we didn’t take the time to fully enjoy and reflect on what we were doing. Therefore, let’s take a few minutes and look back on the year we had.
The PLIA had a pretty good year. We were able to help fund the fish sticks project on Post Lake to help improve the fish habitat. We had a wonderful Ice Fishing Jamboree with great weather, great community turnout and great donations. We had a very successful roadside cleanup day. (It appears the beverage of choice going west from the PLIA building is vodka and Busch Light and going east from the PLIA building it is Bud Light.) We were able to enjoy the summertime favorites of the PLIA Summer Fun Fest, fireworks over Post Lake and the 4th of July boat parade. We had two successful bullhead tournaments and an amazing presentation by REGI on the raptor birds in our area. We were able to have our annual membership meetings. We have new dimmable LED lights and a new interior paint job for the PLIA building. (Special thanks to Dave Leslie on the last two items.) Not too bad for an all-volunteer group! My special thanks to all the PLIA members that volunteered and especially to the PLIA Board of Directors. None of these events happen without you.
Personally, it was a wonderful year. Life in the Northwoods allowed for some great snowmobiling, boating, and 4-wheeling in and around the Post Lake area. My wife Aly and I were able to enjoy some great Thirsty Thursdays, weekends and Sunday Fundays with family and friends, all curtesy of the Post Lake area. It truly is an amazing place to live.
I hope you were also blessed with a great 2021. We should all look forward to 2022 with zest and anticipation. There is so much to do and so many opportunities to be had in the Post Lake area. I know the view from my window is pretty darn good.
