May 29th, 2015 Posted by Off the Water 0 comments on “Wild and Scenic Film Festival”

CRK, in collaboration with Brenau University and the University of North Georgia, is thrilled to bring the Wild and Scenic® Film Festival to Gainesville GA on Saturday, May 30, 2015.

Hosted from CRK Headwaters Office, the Wild & Scenic® Film Festival inspires people and unites communities to conserve and protect our natural resources.

Join us to witness environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment. Through these films, Wild & Scenic will inform you about the state of the world and inspire you to take action (scroll down to read more about the films).

Located just off the Gainesville square, the Brenau Downtown Center offers a 300 seat theater ideally suited for this event. Come early or stay late and take advantage of the dining and shopping options provided by Gainesville’s downtown restaurants and businesses.

Light refreshments will be served before the screening and during intermission. No food or drink is allowed inside the theater.Other local, regional, and statewide environmental groups will also be on hand with information about their programs and what you can do to become involved.

Door prizes and raffle items will also be a part of the event. Come prepared for an evening of fun and inspiration.

CRK is offering a special membership incentive with ticket purchase to this event. Please follow the registration link below to take advantage of this opportunity.

Kentucky Derby Fundraiser

March 26th, 2015 Posted by Off the Water, Water Safety 0 comments on “Kentucky Derby Fundraiser”

As the 2015 goal for Rotary International is “Light Up The World”, the Rotary Club of Lanier Forsyth has selected the Lake Lanier Association as one of the charitable organizations to receive a portion of the profits from their Kentucky Derby fund raiser to help fund the solar lighting program on Lake Lanier.

A couple notes: This is an open bar event. A designated driver or taxi cab to and from would be a very good idea. This is a derby party. Ladies, a fancy hat and dress is very appropriate attire. Gentlemen, you don’t have to wear a fancy hat, but this would be considered more of a dress up event than the standard day at the lake. No flip flops or Budweiser t-shirt for this event.

Details:
Date – Saturday, May 2, 2015
Time – 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Location – Windemere Golf Club House
Dress – Derby Attire
Cost – $75/person
Food/Drink – Heavy appetizers/open bar (includes mint juleps)

Tickets must be purchased in advance. If you would like to attend and support this event, please send an email to lakeinfo@lakelanier.org and we will put you in touch with the group to purchase your ticket.

NEW Lake Destination Lanier Magazine — free to Lake Lanier Association members

March 30th, 2014 Posted by Membership, Off the Water 0 comments on “NEW Lake Destination Lanier Magazine — free to Lake Lanier Association members”

The publishers of the Gainesville Times and other newspapers in our community are embarking on a new publication related to Lake Lanier. The new Lake Destination Lanier magazine will be a sister publication to their already popular HOME Living in North Georgia magazine. Like HOME, Lake Destination Lanier will feature a variety of articles on lake living, social events, recreation and leisure as well as community contributors from those who keep Lake Lanier thriving.

As a benefit of being a member of the Lake Lanier Association, we have arranged for our members to receive a hard copy (not electronic) version of the magazine mailed directly at no cost. There will be a calendar of events for both the lake area and surrounding counties. If you have story ideas or pictures from around the lake for the Around Town section of the magazine, you are welcome to submit them to:   mboaen@gainesvilletimes.com.

There is no fee for receiving this magazine, and your address will not be shared with any other parties for any other purpose than mailing of this publication. If you prefer not to receive this magazine, you may opt out by sending an email to either the Lake Lanier Association or the editor of the Lake Destination Lanier magazine requesting to opt out. We are excited about this unique opportunity for our members and look forward to seeing many of you among the pages of the new magazine!

 

Bolding Mill Campground — Campground Host Needed

March 6th, 2014 Posted by Off the Water 0 comments on “Bolding Mill Campground — Campground Host Needed”

The Lake Lanier Association would like to pass along an opportunity that some of our members may be interested in pursuing.

The US Army Corps of Engineers has an opportunity to live at Lake Lanier for “free”. They are looking for folks who would like to serve as a volunteer campground host at Bolding Mill Campground at Lake Lanier for 3 to 6+ months. In exchange for 20 hours of volunteer service a week, individuals could stay at this beautiful campground for free. The volunteer campground sites in Bolding Mill have full hook-ups for large motor homes (50 amp service, water, sewer, etc.) The campground is located close to many amenities in the North Georgia area.

The Corps will be interviewing potential hosts over the next couple of weeks and will be making their selections shortly thereafter. If you are interested, contact the Buford Dam Project office at 770-945-9531 for more details about how to apply.
