The Lakes

Not everyone lives on one of our community lakes, but it is good to know about this important resource and interesting to know what's below the surface. The lakes are here for everyone to enjoy. For those wondering about the creature slumbering at the bottom of the lake, well there have not been any sightings in recorded history.
