29th Annual Lake Sarah Summer Picnic July 23, 2017
The annual Lake Sarah summer picnic was held on Sunday July 23rd 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 Paul Klesmit and Ginny Cook. 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 vent on their property!

BE A PART OF LAKE SARAH HISTORY: Lake Sarah history will be gatheredfrom residents at large, but especially from Dolores Ullstrom who has archived informaton over the years which will be made available by her for your viewing and enjoyment. Please bring anything you have to add to the history table. Make a poster board of your experiences over the years on the lake, pictures on the lake with your family, neighbors, or at the resorts. Try to date items on your poster board for others to enjoy. History will also be made that day with a group photo of all the residents who attend this year. The group photo will be taken right after dinner at about 5:00 p.m. Volunteer photographers will be taking the group photo and individual family photographs by request. Some photographs will be in the newsletter and family photographs will be up loaded to a site yet to be determined….Snapfish, Shu2erfly, etc.
ADULT AND FAMILY GAMES: This year we will hold a Kubb tournament! Look it up on Google and you will find that itis the craze right now. This game is played with a partner, and works well with one adult and one child, or two adults. So, be sure you and your partner are ready to play by around 2:30 p.m. Jerry Wise is the expert on this game, or maybe it is his son Tom. In either case he will be setting up three courts and the brackets for this tournament. Make sure you are a part of this craze….there will be a first and second place winner! We have something special for the children this year too! A “Coloring Contest” for children of all ages begins now by coloring the Lake Sarah picture as shown in the newsletter. We will have five age groups: toddlers, children ages 5 & 6, 7 and 8, 9 and 10, and 11 years and older. So make several copies and have all your children, grandchildren, or neighbors’ children enter this contest by coloring and bringing it to the picnic with their name and age printed on the back of the page. We will have a “kick your shoe contest” for adults and children, a hula hoop contest, and -me for making bubbles.
LSIA Annual Meeting:A brief meeting will begin around 3:00 p.m. where new board members will be elected and BoatParade Contest winners will be announced and awards presented.
FOOD:The menu is “All American” tradi-onal picnic food of hamburgers and brats with sauerkraut. Please bring a dishto pass, and new this year, its recipe! For those of you who are purchasing a side dish, see if you can either get the recipe from the restaurant, or modify it to make it your own and give us that recipe. We will be vo-ng for the winning side dish. IF WE GET RECEIPES……WE MAY PUBLISH A BOOK….BUT MOST LIKELY YOUR RECIPE WILL BE PUBLISHED IN A FUTURE NEWSLETTER.
SILENT AUCTION : New this year is a silent auction! Rumor has it one of the items donated is a week in Sedona, AZ (airfare not included of course).
VOLUNTEERS: If you are interested in getting involved with the picnic, please email me at Theresaewise@gmail.com. I would really appreciate your help! I especially need help with the history table, photography, the games, the food table, and contest judging.
