75th Anniversary

GLA Celebrates 75 Years: Looking Back – Focusing Ahead

This year marks an incredibly important milestone for the Glen Lake Association (GLA).

In 2020, GLA is recognizing 75 years and is proud and grateful for its journey of protection and preservation in a fast-changing society with growing challenges and opportunities.

It was 1945 when a group of property owners convened the first association meeting. The mission was to protect the amazingly pristine and delicate natural resource known as Glen Lake and the connecting environs.

Since then, there have been many notable events–naturally-occurring and man-made–that have impacted the nonprofit and charted a course to the present.

For the next 12 months, the GLA board of directors is recognizing our anniversary achievement and the many members and volunteers past and present, (families, community members, policy makers and crucial partners), who were and continue to be an integral part of the voyage.

  • Mark your calendars and plan to attend the 75th Celebration on Thursday, August 6, 2020. More details to come.
  • Beginning in January, historical accounts of association events over the past seven decades will appear in the twice-monthly eBlasts, titled GLA Remembers. Sign up here to receive the eBlasts.
  • Watch for special events, volunteer opportunities, commemorative memorabilia, and more on our website, Facebook page and in eBlasts.

Special thanks go out to the 75th Planning Committee for their long hours researching history and planning the celebration. They include Lori Lyman–chair, Tricia Denton, Larry Faulman, Susie Haley, David and Susan Haughn, Sallyanne Morris, Ginny Rockwood, Pat Vredevoogd Combs and Shelley Walter.
