Introduction letters from Entertainment Director and Chairperson

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and my background with Leisure Lake.  My husband, daughter, and I purchased property at the end of summer 2015 on West Circle Drive, and are excited to be

part of the LLPOA!  Growing up, I remember driving my three wheeler around West Circle Drive and always LOVING the spot where we are proud to now say is ours!  How lucky and thankful I am!

My attachment to Leisure Lake goes back over 30 years.  Growing up in Davenport Iowa, my cousin Chad Rauch had friends who had property here at Leisure Lake.  After several visits, his parents came up and soon purchased property themselves.  My family also became attached to Leisure Lake and purchased property to enjoy our summers here!

My parents also reside permanently here at Leisure Lake.  It is now time for me to share my memories with others.  As a girl scout leader for over 10 years, I love sharing my passion for outdoors and learning with younger kids and teens, so I am excited to announce that I have accepted the postion of Entertainment Director here at Leisure Lake.  I am asking you to help me get your children involved.  Please let them know when there are events and activities so they can join in.  My biggest motto is "leave no child behind", and that is what I am hoping we can all do together!

Here is to making 2016 and beyond, the best year for our kids!

See you all May 28th!


I started coming to the Lake when I was about 8 years old (20 years ago!)  Together, my family flourished, and eventually branced out to have multiple places here on the property.  Since I was a kid, this was always my favorite place in the world, and now I am lucky enough to live here full time.  I am engaged to be married, and am excited to start my family in a place where my fiance' and I have both grown up and can raise our family in amazing environment near those we love.
