Community Events

One of the most exciting times in the community is when we share a common desire to enjoy life, together. The community group strives to keep this part of the Echo Lake Community alive. Our time spent with the pandemic has curtailed many planned events, but not all of them. As we develop an immunity to the virus, it will be safer to gather. When that happens we will have more in person events. Until then, we will continue with the safer events.

Below are the events we focus on. Others are added as planning for the year proceeds, so check back often. If you have suggestions for future events, contact the .

Speaker Series

When: Each month (see Schedule)

The Echo Lake Community Group is hosting a series of events to inform, educate, and provide everyone an opportunity to socialize with neighbors and dialog about some of the community concerns.

Currently these are held on Zoom due to the pandemic.
