The Lake Country Clean Water Festival, hosted by the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club in conjunction with the Pewaukee Kiwanis Beach Party, is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year! Since 2011, the festival has focused on raising awareness for the increasing need to preserve Lake Country’s waterways and raising money for clean-up efforts so we can all enjoy the fun and beauty that the lakes bring to our community. The festival has also provided opportunities for all to enjoy the many recreational activities that our lakes afford from learning to water ski, to fishing, to pontoon boat rides, to ZUMBA and bootcamp on the beach, to paddle sports.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, $32,500 has been donated to local groups focused on water quality and education. Too, hundreds have visited our education tent to learn from local lake ecology experts and have participated in water-related recreation opportunities. But the need is great and there is a more to be done to protect the waterways that are central to the high quality of life we enjoy in Lake Country.
To that end, we have formed a new 501(c)(3) organization called the Clean Water Association. The association is a coalition of stakeholders that seek to improve and protect our waterways. Its purpose is to bring the community together to raise funds, awareness and energy to advance the mission of clean waterways in Lake Country. Please visit the association website by clicking here to learn more, to volunteer or to donate. We welcome your involvement!
In the meantime, we hope you come to this year’s festival and join in on the fun as we celebrate our precious gems – the lakes of Lake Country!
