With growth, we have additional challenges and responsibility – please do your part by helping to acculturate your newly attending friends, and encourage people to spend a little time volunteering; Lakes is a volunteer-run event, which means the people putting on your wristband and the people cleaning up MOOP on Sunday afternoon are participants just like you.

2017 Art Grant Info

Photo: Shannon HartnettSubmissions for Art Grants open on January 18th, so get your proposals ready! We are very excited to announce that there will be a total of $30,000 available in art grants for new projects to be created this year. This year’s theme is ‘Fire and Ice’; we hope that this will inspire you to develop some dramatic and interesting proposals.

It’s time to get fired up, because there is only one round of submissions this year and the final deadline is February 18th!

So, get them wheels a-turning, designs a-drawing, and applications a-submitting!

Changes in the Board of Directors

The G.L.E.A. Board of Directors is pleased to welcome four new Board members. Please help us in welcoming to the team: Mary “Blue” Green, Nuri “Raptor” Gocay, Jeff “Dudewolf” Deehan, and Michael “Michael Sherwin” Sherwin.

Much gratitude goes to our outgoing Board Members, Andrea “Captain Blood” North, Chance “Gryffin” Loman, Eric “Pirate” Branson, and Ardyth “RD” Paganone, whose exemplary service, stewardship, and dedication to sustainability of our event during their terms as members of the Board was a wonderful example to us all.
