Welcome To Papakeechie!

Depending upon weed growth, and weather permitting, lake weed treatment is planned to begin within first 2 weeks of May. The curly leaf weeds will start to die, and after a week or two the weed the will begin floating on the lakes surface.  The weed harvester will be put in lake to begin weed removal process. To keep the chemical in lake, at the time of application, all stop logs will be installed in the dam drop box. On the day that the treatment is applied, yellow signs will be posted around the lake and marker buoys will be installed in lake. Due to it being a systemic herbicide, you should not use lake water for irrigation of lawns for 30 days.  Sonar/Avast has no effect on fish, animals, or humans.

The 2017 PPA Annual Meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August, 12th. Election for the following will be held at the meeting: Vice President, Treasurer, and representatives from districts; 1, 3, 5, 5A and 7. If you are, or you know of anyone who is interested in running for a position, please let us know.

Message from the President

As your newly elected association president, I can truly say that it is both an honor and a privilege. I do not take this responsibility to the PPA and its members lightly. I accept this appointment with pride and will give my best efforts to make you proud to have selected me. I will devote my time and myself to the obligations and the duties of this office.

Beginning in the late 1960s, I have had the privilege of enjoying the enormous satisfaction of coming to this lake, and being a part of its beauty and serenity. In 2001 My family fulfilled a longtime dream of owning a place of our own on this pristine lake. I am no stranger to our association and it’s Board. In the summer of 2008, I was elected and have since served as the PPA Board Secretary.

With the cooperation of my fellow members, I am fully confident that we can accomplish much in our effort to conquer our challenges, and reach our goals. I am counting on your support in these efforts.

Thanks for your vote of confidence,

Pat Ebetino, PPA President
