About the CLWA


CLWA’S 2023 Annual Meeting held on July 22

Nearly 100 members and friends attended the 2023 Annual Meeting at the Mills Community House in Benzonia. President Sue Brown reviewed CLWA projects over the past year and presented several new initiatives that are under way. Water quality monitoring and protection will expand with the addition of part-time CLWA Lake Biologist John Ransom. Treasurer Bruce Gerhart reported on the organization’s sound fiscal condition and the allocation of its resources. Election of officers and board members had taken place by mail ballot.

Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions at the conclusion of the presentations. A primary concern was the development around the lake and weak enforcement of zoning ordinances.

Thanks to the courtesy of the Benzie County Historical Society, virtual attendance by Zoom was also provided.
