The annual Lake Sarah summer picnic was held on Sunday July 22nd at Jorgenson's "park". It was attended by well over 100 neighbors! We were entertained once again by the very talented “Soul Sisters” group. This year LSIA provided yummy fried and grilled chicken and families brought lots of food to share. The ever popular Kube tournament was won this year by Scott Walsh and Brad Spencer. The children loved bouncing for hours in the jump house. A brief LSIA meeting was held and three new board members were elected. A huge THANK YOU to all who helped to make this summer tradition a big success and to Ron & Mary Jorgenson for hosting the event on their property!
