As we all know, Lake Anna is a great place. Whether you want to boat, fish, swim, camp, relax or just enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, our lake is a great spot. But the Lake Anna Civic Association needs your help to make sure the lake continues to offer this great lifestyle.
The pandemic brought more people than ever to the lake last summer as people looked for a way to enjoy family and friends while still social distancing and staying safe. Even though COVID is waning, all indications are this year will be another busy year.
An important part of LACA’s mission is to serve as the voice of our membership to ensure the lake continues to be the best it possibly can be. Both now and in the years to come. We all know there is strength in numbers, and the best way to make our voice speak as loudly as possible is to increase our membership.
LACA has begun our Drive To 1000 membership campaign. Increasing our membership is key to our success when promoting the issues we believe are important to the long-term health and wellbeing of the Lake Anna area.
We want you to tell your friends, neighbors, and anyone else who enjoys the lake about the benefits of being a LACA member, and we’re willing to pay you to help us spread the word.
Direct prospective members to our website and have them sign up for membership (https://www.lakeannavirginia.org/join-now). Just be sure to tell them to list you in the “referred by” field. For every new member that lists you as the referring member, we’ll enter your name into a drawing for a $500 gift card from a local business or restaurant. Get four new members, get four entries into the drawing. And if they sign up for multiple years (at our discounted rate), you’ll get an extra entry for each additional year.
And to sweeten the pot even more, for every four members you refer, you’ll get a $50 gift card. And we’ll even pay a $100 cash prize to the current member who gets the most total new members!! We’ll hand out these prizes as soon as we reach our goal of 1000 total members.
Ask any realtor in the area and they’ll tell you that our community is growing at an unprecedented rate. LACA plays an important part making sure that growth is well managed. We’re working on your behalf to learn more about what can be done to stop or reduce the harmful algae blooms (HAB) that seem to be increasing each year. We are in constant contact with state and local officials to make sure that new residential and commercial projects make sense for our area. We work with local law enforcement and safety organizations to help promote safe enjoyment of the lake. And don’t forget, LACA is the organizer and sponsor of our great July 4th fireworks!
As a LACA member, you know how important these and other issues are. Our membership drive is the best way you can be sure the lake is what we all want it to be, both now and in the years to come.
