Our Vision

We will be the leading civic group working to promote a positive image for our lake and create economic viability.  

Our Mission

We will do this by working with our partners, sponsors and 'friends' to promote community events, invest in infrastructure and support lakeshore preservation efforts. 


Our goals are to:


  • Coordinate and facilitate public information and activities on water safety, visitor safety, environmental issues and other recreation activities on Rough River Lake

  • Provide a common meeting ground and forum for interested individuals

  • Provide educational opportunities

  • Provide assistance in soliciting monetary or tangible donations from area organizations and businesses for projects and/or festivals that the group undertakes
