Take the Lake takes a pause in 2022
To insure a safe and fun event, the Take the Lake steering committee has decided to hit the “pause” button on the Labor Day fitness challenge this year. Plans are to resume the traditional 3-day physical challenge next year. New jobs, moves and delayed vacations are just a few of the timing and logistic conflicts past TTL volunteers are handling this summer. It was a hard decision to take a pause, but one that is in everyone's best interest this year. It takes dozens of volunteers led by a strong steering committee plus police, park rangers, fire and rescue squads, civic groups and sponsoring businesses to coordinate a Take the Lake that’s safe, well-managed and fun in the traditional in-person format. Several local individuals and organizations have expressed interest in collaborating with planning Take the Lake 2023. The steering committee is spending this year regrouping after two years of disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Myself and so many others looked so forward to take the lake this year. With Covid disrupting the last few years, we had such great hopes of seeing it return. What a great community event. Guess this is part of the new normal. 😔
