Signs of Spring!

by admin on February 11, 2014









Everyone else uses Punxsutawney Phil for their Spring predictions – Pickerel Lake has the annual sighting of the Flamingo’s.

Well they have arrived – a sure sign that Spring is right around the corner.

Thanks to Nina and Bob Fox for the grin!

The next meeting of the Pickerel/Kimball Lake Board is October 10, 2013 at the Drain Commissioner’s Office in White Cloud.  This is the Board that manages our weed control on Pickerel/Kimball Lakes.

They will be deciding at this meeting whether to extend the weed contract with Savin Lake Services for another year or to rebid the contract for 2014.

The meeting will start at 10:00 A.M. and there will be a place on the agenda for public comment.

If you wish to express your comments on the weed control this past summer you can do it by either attending the meeting or by e-mailing your comments to Lynn Norlin, who is our lake representative on the Lake Board, at

Missing! …

by admin on September 9, 2013

We are missing two of the signs that we put out announcing the PKA Fall Association Meeting at Camp Newaygo.  They are an orange/red color.  If you come across one of the signs, please call John Schorr at 616-901-7425 and he will pick it up.

fall meeting notice1

{ Comments on this entry are closed }

We all were wondering what happened to the fireworks display this year. 

In talking to Carl McCloud, who produced the fireworks show, the fuse malfunctioned causing the majority of the fireworks to go off simultaneously at the very beginning of the show. So what we ended up seeing was like a Grand Finale at the very beginning followed by two other volleys of shells which were all seen above the trees on Kimball Lake. 

Carl said that the Wolverine Fireworks Company talked him into using a new fusing system that they had just developed recently. When the fuse system malfunctioned, it caused most of all the shells to go off all at once. It was a very spectacular display; unfortunately it did not last very long.

At the Pickerel-Kimball Lakes Association fall meeting, the fireworks will be on the agenda and open for discussion as to what we should do in 2014. We encourage everyone to attend the meeting so we can get everyone’s input. We have been holding the association meeting to one hour. We will plan a good portion of the fall meeting time to address the fireworks.

Lake Fireworks Show

by admin on July 6, 2013

fireworks safe area

As we plan and prepare for our fireworks show Saturday, July 6, 2013 it is necessary that safety areas be created and observed.

For the enjoyment and safety of everyone please look over the map, and if you will be on the water, plan on staying clear of the “No Boats” area.

The North boundary is a line from the peninsula on the west side, east to the public access. The South boundary is  a line that runs south and east of the tunnel from Kimball Lake. Please leave as much area on the south side for our members from Kimball Lake.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and have a fun and safe Holiday.

From your Pickerel-Kimball Lakes Association Board
