Walk to End Alzheimer’s

More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

September 25th, 2021 the team “Three Sisters” is again walking in the Brainerd Lakes Area Walk to End Alzheimer’s to help end the disease that has personally impacted their family. 

Join us August 6th at The Cave in Hillman to help raise money during our annual fundraiser to help support Alzheimer’s research. All proceeds from this event stays locally and will go to the Brainerd Lakes Area Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
If you want to donate silent auction items, please drop off at The Cave or call Lisa at 320-260-4339

Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we!

Treat Swimmer’s Itch

swimmers-ich graphicSwimmer’s itch is a temporary skin rash that is caused by an allergic reaction to microscopic parasites that are carried by waterfowl, semi-aquatic mammals, and snails. As a part of their life cycle, these parasites are released by infected snails into the water, where they may come in contact with swimmers and burrow into their skin.

Last summer only six members participated in the PLM Swimmers’ Itch Treatment Program and a decision was made to not offer that program again this year as it was not cost effective for PLM. However, should you be interested in treating your swimming area, individual lake home owners can apply for a permit for themselves and apply the copper sulfate themselves.The application fee is $4.00. Below is a link for the application form with instructions, as well as a list of vendors where you can purchase copper sulfate to treat your lake shore for swimmers’ itch. This treatment typically falls in the second week of July. If you have any further questions, please email Audrey Kuchinsky.

Download the application.

Lake Sullivan water quality testing

Lake Sullivan Association has been submitting water samples and testing water clarity since 2008. Steve Pavelka, our tester, recently completed his sampling for this year and all samples have been submitted to RMB Environmental Laboratories. RMB provided the data for the following reports showing how Lake Sullivan is faring during the testing and how we compare with other Morrison County Lakes. You can explore the topic further with Primer on Lake Limnology and preparing your own reports with their Lakes Database.
