Echo Lake Community
We Are Stronger Together
Welcome to our corner of paradise. Our rural community is composed of thirty-eight hundred people living near Echo Lake, Snohomish County, State of Washington, USA.
We may be small, but we are friendly folks working to make the world a better, safer place.
This is quite possibly the place where all men are good looking, all women are strong and all children are above average.
You can view our community on this MAP.

Coronavirus & the Echo Lake Community
News of the Coronavirus impact is everywhere and may be causing some stress to you and your family. While the Echo Lake Community board has been focused on emergency preparation over this past year, we didn’t see a biological threat as a top contender. It is here now and we sincerely hope your basic personal preparedness plan has been a priority. We are fortunate to be living in a rural setting where we can have some degree of isolation when necessary. To be responsible, your board has decided to postpone community events until such time the Coronavirus has diminished.
With the availability of media, multiple online sources and social media, it’s easy to be misinformed. It is important to protect ourselves and families by following guidelines available from trusted sources. The situation is dynamic with daily updates available. We direct your attention to the following sources for up-to-date information (click the title). Take this information and make decisions for your family.

This could also be a time to consider the well-being of your neighbors, remembering ‘We are stronger together’. There are governmental agencies working to prevent the spread of Covid-19 but at the core of prevention is personal preparedness! The Echo Lake Community Board is also staying abreast of the situation. If there are developments that more directly impact our community, we will issue local alerts. For now, follow the above guidelines and understand this too will pass and life will return to normal.
We had a great presentation by Sgt. Rebecca Lewis to a packed house, learning about how to protect ourselves and avoid potentially bad situations. We will be hosting more speakers in 2020, so stay tuned!

The Great Echo Lake Boat Parade of 2019
Sunday, Dec 15, 2019
It was a fun affair. Nine people decorated their boats in holiday style with lights and other things.
Everyone had fun putting this event together, and even more fun on the water at dusk. There were viewing parties on shore to watch the boats parade around the lake as darkness washed the scene and the dazzling lights took charge.
Everyone found their favorite float but everyone enjoyed the holiday spirit and good times at Echo Lake.
Our community is so lucky to have events like this, just for fun. This is an annual event, so look forward to next year when you can join in on the fun.
National Community Award
The National Association of Town Watch has awarded the Echo Lost Lake Community Group the Rookie of the Year Award for 2019 for their outstanding performance and participation during the National Night Out event.
The Echo Lake group with more than 50 volunteers, attracted over 320 people, provided live music, free ice cream, Fire Truck, Sheriff, County Communications Truck , community services displays and collected 265 pounds of food for the local food bank.
We are bringing neighbors in our community together through this national program. This program was developed by FEMA specifically for communities and neighborhoods. For those that participate, this program will save lives and greatly improve the quality of life following a disaster. The program is FREE but requires participating households to provide some information to their neighbors.
IN 2019, WE LAUNCHED 11 STREETS IN OUR COMMUNITY. PLEASE JOIN US TO BRING THIS PROGRAM TO YOUR STREET.
