50thlogo_smallLOWA’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

Thank you to LOW residents, and others, for their help defraying costs for the celebration. As the primary sponsor for the celebration, LOWA provided funds to the 50th Anniversary Ad Hoc Steering Committee to partially cover expenses.

Many of the special activities (concerts and dinner dances, for example) were self-supporting through ticket sales. Others, like 5K Run T-Shirts and enhanced Independence Day activities and fireworks on July 1, were supported by donations. The same is true of the museum exhibit and permanent display cabinets. This is where contributions helped. Every dollar returned to LOWA by the steering committee held down the cost to members for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Our First Project!

Hanging pendant lights illuminate the renovated Woods Center Fareways eating space and bar area due to the donation of five generous Lake of the Woods individuals. These individuals first secured LOWA’s approval for adding the pendant lights to the Fareway’s project, and then forwarded this endorsement, with the necessary donated funds, to FLOW for project approval and processing. This is exactly how FLOW is supposed to work!
