The Little Sand Lake Area Association has been steadily increasing membership over the years and hope to have 100% of our lake property owners re-join and/or become a first time member. The annual dues are $35. The budget supports AIS launch inspections for watercraft at the public access and lake monitoring/water testing to ensure we continue to have a healthy and safe lake for all. We also support the Hubbard County Coalition of Lakes (HC COLA) and our annual fishing contest. We have minimal administrative expense because our leadership is all volunteer. Our social events are self-paid by participants with only a nominal amount spent on the annual picnic.
We ask all of our members and all new members to pay their dues early in the year to help with budgeting. We encourage credit card payments to reduce the amount of work for our Treasurer. We also ask members to consider a donation over the cost of the dues to help build the small reserve fund in case aquatic invasive species are detected in Little Sand Lake.
At the 2023 Annual Member Meeting, held 6/10/23, members voted to update the dues year to match the fiscal year of the association which is January to December. Please pay any outstanding 2023 dues as soon as possible. As of 2024, dues will be $50 per member to support the higher cost of launch inspections. Any additional funds will support future AIS needs for Little Sand Lake. These dues will be payable January 1, 2024.
To pay your 2023 annual dues, please consider using your credit card. To pay dues by credit card, please use this link: LSLAA Annual Dues On-line. To pay by check or for billing inquiries contact [email protected]
A few details:
1. Dues are $35 per property. We also ask members to consider donating any amount above and beyond the $35 to contribute towards lake monitoring and a reserve in the event our lake has any infestation issues in the future. LSLAA is a 501(c)3 charitable organization making your contributions and all donations tax deductible.
2. Memorial Donations are available for your loved one. We place a name plate in honor of your loved one at the kiosk at the boat launch. We recommend a minimum donation of $50 for a memorial, but a donation of less will not preclude our remembering someone special.
3. We use Stripe as our credit card service which offers industry standard encryption. Please note: LSLAA will not have access to or store your credit card and related information. As part of the collection process, you will be able to indicate whether you are paying your dues, making an extra donation, or making a memorial donation. Credit card companies charge a fee of 3% and that will apply to your total credit card payment to LSLAA. As a non-profit, we appreciate our members covering this fee.
Your membership is appreciated and valued. Your donations help ensure a strong Little Sand Lake Area Association for years to come! Thank you very much.
