Activities & People

Below is a list of ongoing programs undertaken by the association, and the people involved. Where there are too many people to list, only the team leader is listed.

We are always glad to have members volunteer to help with LFA Events and Activities. The more we have to help, the more we can do! Please consider volunteering a little of your time to keep our association running smoothly and effectively. It’s a fun, rewarding way to meet and help your neighbors. Contact the appropriate person below to get involved.

Newcomers Welcome
Katya Schultz
Angie Chambers
Our goal is to visit every family who moves into Lake Forest Estates. Each member of our group takes a territory. They visit the newcomer and provide information about Lake Forest and the LFA. Everyone likes to be welcomed to their new neighborhood, and this important service gets our member relationship off to a good start.
Membership & Dues Inquiries
Russ Cole
The contact for questions regarding member status.
Real Estate Liaison
Russ Cole
This volunteer works with agents, attorneys and other real estate professionals to provide information about the LFA, including any outstanding HOA dues owed.

Associate Membership
Clark Troy
The associate membership program allows a limited number of households in specific areas adjacent to the LFA to participate in the LFA’s recreational, social and civic programs. This volunteer fields inquiries about this program.
Park & Lake Management
Boat Rack Manager
Scott Reifsnyder
Boat racks can be rented annually for storing canoes, kayaks and other small craft at Eastwood Park. Contact this person with any questions about boat use on the lake. Also read our boat policy page.
Parks and Grounds
John Watkin
Manages our park and other commons properties and coordinates maintenance issues in the park: landscaping, lawn care, signage, repairs, etc.
Park Program Manager
Audrey Green
If you are planning a party on the park grounds, and the number of attenders will be over 14 people (kids and adults), please fill out a “Group Reservation From”. This does not grant groups exclusive rights to the park, however, as all members have equal access. We just need to anticipate whether we might need to limit concurrent large group activity at a certain time. Contact Audrey with questions and to reserve a date. You can download the Large Group Booking Form here
Events Coordinator
One of the best things about Lake Forest is the people. So we can meet new neighbors and reconnect with the stalwarts, the LFA hosts a social at the park each Spring, which includes all members: Associate, Participating and Non-participating. Other member activities and events are in the hope-for planning stage
Water Quality
Chuck Henage
Chuck samples our lake water at least three times each year: spring, mid-summer, and later summer. Then he takes it to a testing facility, and reports the results via this website. He’d like to get another volunteer involved, so he has a backup and there is cross-training.
