As we get close to our 10th Take the Lake season,* it's fun to look back on the fun we've had, and the Take the Lake committee, volunteers, Lake residents and participants have had great fun with our different themes each year!
Begun in 2011, we have chosen themes to "tip our hats" to special groups of people, and also to give them a little extra motivation. We started with military veterans, and we have shared our fun with many groups of great people ever since.
Take a fun stroll through the TTL years, right here!
* 2008 - Pilot event, with about 100 people participating in all four PECs
2009 - First official Take the Lake
2011 - First Take the Lake with themes
2018 - The 10th Take the Lake Training Season!
