Our Association


FCAL PresidentGreetings from your 2016 FCAL President Pam Schroeder!

It’s high time I introduced myself to you.  Not only am I new to this position of leadership, I am also pretty new to FCAL and so I have much to learn and appreciate all of your help and guidance.  Lee Lamers, your amazing President for the past 6 years and his wife Vi, your equally amazing secretary, have promised to mentor me through this first year of service.

I have been a permanent resident of Forest County since 1989 but I have always worked at a job that kept me on the road Monday – Friday.  2016 marked the beginning of my 3rd year of retirement and it is only now that I am finally getting to know my “neighborhood”.  In Forest County I live with my husband Allen on Little Long Lake.  I moved here from Neenah, WI where I grew up on Little Lake Butte des Morts.  The very property I played on as a kid is now the home of the company that is dredging the toxins off of the bottom of that lake.  You can well imagine how much I appreciate the amazing resource these clean lake waters of Forest County represent.  

One of my first goals as the President of FCAL was to learn the location of the lakes in our county.  I have since modified my expectation to that of learning the location of the lakes represented by our FCAL board members and become familiar with the issues of personal concern to those members.  I would like to attend as many Lake Association meetings this year as possible so that I can meet our members and learn about your lakes and your concerns as riparian land owners.  Please let me know when your Lake Association meets this spring via email: pschroed0214@gmail.com or phone# 715-473-3803 and I will make every effort to attend and introduce myself and FCAL to your Association.
