The lake cleanup is scheduled for Saturday March 13th at 1:00 pm. Meet at the Lakeside Park in downtown. The dumpster is usually at the public access on 2nd lake by Willow Point. After the cleanup there is a meal at the Forest Laker. Thanks to all that can come and thanks to Pete from the Forest Laker for the food.

Me and the wife have nothing planned, so we figured to help with the cleaup. Funny, live in Forest Lake, don't fish or boat in it. The lake is too busy in the summer, haven't ice fished in three years, but it is still irritating to go for a walk on the ice and see all the junk slob fishermen and snowmobilers leave.

Anyhow, wat to bring? Do we hoof it and someone picks up the trash bags? Bring a wheeler? Bring trash bags? Haven't done it before, so please give me a heads up.

If you were to meet at the Lakeside Park at 1:00 pm, they will have trash bags to pass out. The dumpster is usually at the 2nd lake public access by Willow Point. If you have a 4 wheeler, then you could bring it along, otherwise there are always people that have 4 wheelers and trailers and you could just ride along on their trailer. I did that the first year and it was nice to meet some new people that way. Met a guy with a Mickey Mouse hat. All of the people are very friendly. There is also a free meal afterwords at the Forest Laker. I live on 3rd lake so I will just be taking off from home and going to the Laker afterwords. Thank you and your wife for coming!!!

Went out till 2:45. picked up lots of stuff. I found a package of jigs, full bottle of propane (1lb), some snowmobiling goggles, and some craftsman screwdrivers. I can believe our own guys are wrecking our own sport. why can't these people pick up after themselves...

What a great day today!

A rough guess was about 50-75 people helping out on the clean up today. We picked up alot of stuff left by anglers and people that just drive the lake, as you can see by Kevins photos. It was nice to see alot of people on 4 wheelers and trailers, as well as familys out on the lake. A few on golf carts on the lake as well. We filled up about half of a 30 yd dumpster including some furniture that was also found on the lake. Thank you to all that came out today and also thanks to Pete from the Forest Laker for the meal afterwards!!!
