What brought you here? My wife had relatives who were original residents on the lake and she had been coming here all her life. We enjoyed visiting and when the opportunity came up we moved here.

Several boats that do not have stickers or that appear to be abandoned have been tagged and will be removed from the lake. Please reply to this e-mail if your boat was marked in error.
The board has approved removal of the rotted railroad ties and riprap for the B1 commons area along the boat ramp. Work specifications have been sent out for bid and a vendor will be selected soon.
Residents are asked to help clean up commons areas. Please collect everything into a pile on the side of the road. We hope to have a pickup before Memorial Day and a final limb pick up on May 27.
The next Dunlap Lake Association Board Meeting will be June 1: The monthly Association board meeting is at 7 pm Monday at 840 East Lake Drive.
Luau Saturday May 30
Get your grass skirts out, we’ve ordered nice weather and signed up the hula dancers for this year’s Luau. By popular demand, it’s been moved to the weekend AFTER Memorial Day to allow more people to attend this fun-filled event.
4 PM BOAT PARADE - This year’s theme will be music so decorate your boat and/or dress up like your favorite artist, video, song or style of music. Prizes will be given. Boats will meet at the underwater bridge at 4 pm and proceed counterclockwise around the lake (spectators are encouraged and there’s a rumor a few boats might even throw candy).
5 PM VISIT WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS - The fun continues at the lot on the West Lake side of the underwater bridge. Visit with your neighbors and enjoy music and games for the kids with DJ Jim Hursey.
6 PM POTLUCK DINNER - The Association will provide meat, plates, serving utensils and lemonade. Bring lawn chairs, a dish or two that can be shared generously, and any special drinks you want for your family. The May newsletter will remind you to send an RSVP. You can attend alone or bring friends and family with you as long as they are included in your count.
