                                  Thank You Charles!! 

                            Charles Bourbeau stopped by our board meeting last night to deliver

                            his $2000 Lake Perimeter Path Sign sponsorship. He has

                            always been interested in history and he is sponsoring one

                            of the two history signs. Thank You Charles!

Our 5th Annual LakeFest with Children's Day in the Park is cancelled due to State and local guidelines. The good news is that we have our 2021 date set for July 17th. Again, we will be partnering with The Link Family Resource Center for our 2021 LakeFest. We have plenty of time to make it an awesome event. We do feel badly for our almost 40 vendors who work hard and set aside the date for us. We want to thank all our current sponsors and the City of Atascadero for all your ongoing support. Now you will have a year to plan your cardboard boat.
That being said hopefully you have taken advantage of beautiful Atascadero Lake. We work hard for everyone's enjoyment. A healthy lake makes a happy community.

Thank you 2020 Sponsors, we are grateful for your support!!

We would like to take a moment to thank all of you who have given your time and donations throughout 2017.  Initiating and completing a state of the art aeration system has kept our lake free of algae and oxygenated the water creating better water quality. Fish and wildlife have returned for everyone's enjoyment. We could not have accomplished this without your ongoing support.
