Rec Club

Island Lake Rec Club:

We have a new board in place:


Pat Cheshire, President

Kathy Sandmaier - Treasurer

Lori Barr - Council Representative

Bonnie Kluthe - Secretary

Melanie Borlee - Member at Large

We are looking to bring our community together by hosting events, improving the hall area and inviting the other villages around the lake.

We want  to build a tennis/pickle ball and basketball  court and reduce the size of the skating rink to make it more manageable (easier to flood).  We will be fundraising and are waiting to hear back from Tomko about a quote for the tennis/pickleball/basketball court and make some decisions about the size of the rink and repairs to be completed for that portion of the overall project.

Once completed we will be hosting tournaments, setting up weekly times for play, etc.

We are looking for someone to flood the rink this year - even if not the full rink, at least a part of it, if there's someone that would like to earn some extra money, please contact one of the Rec Board to discuss.

Some events we are planning next year are:

Hall/Arena clean up and inventory - May 2018 - a half day clean up - we'll supply the snacks and drinks after to thank everyone!

2 pub nights - A Welcome Back early in June and an End of the year at the end of August

Community Garage & Craft Sale with a Farmers Market - Date TBA

Funday Golf Tournament - Date TBA (If you're interested in sponsoring a hole, please let us know)

To start the year off right we are hosting a New Year's Eve Party December 31, 2017 at 8 pm

Potluck snacks, 50/50, Door prizes

FIREWORKS COMPETITION - Get a team together and put on a display!!!

We are really excited about our lake community and are hoping to get to know our neighbors a bit better.  If you have suggestions for events, please let us know.

Thanks everyone for your participation this last summer, we're looking forward to next year and seeing you at the New Year's Eve Party!
