We are a non-profit district working to preserve and protect our water body by partnering with our community leaders to promote a clean, and healthy environment for all citizens by using education along with proven water management practices to improve our water resource.
Our vision is for a community where our residents and general public benefit from the human conveniences that we have incorporated to ensure that Friendship Lake is not compromised in quality or quantity as a valued water resource. Our vision is a community that regularly uses, enjoys, and assists in conservation efforts to keep and maintain this lake for future generations.
Did you know that if you cannot make the board meeting in person, you can call into the meeting and hear what is going on? If you are interested in finding out how to do this, please email Tina Meinen at FLDTReas@friendshiplake.org and I will walk you through the set up process.
Our next regular scheduled board meeting is for Tuesday May 5, 2020, at 5:30pm at the Community Center. There is also a special meeting scheduled for the whole membership on May 16, 2020 @ 10am at the Community Center.
