Roberds Lake Community

Fourth of July Weekend Events

Friday, July 2nd:

Happy Hour at the grass island starting at 6 PM. 

Saturday, July 3rd:

On Saturday evening from 7 to 10 PM, bring your boat/pontoon over the the A-Frame house on Chappuis Trail (South Side of Lake with an US Flag in back yard) to listen our local Northfield resident, Chad Johnson and the MN-T’s. They will be performing live during that time. They play a wide variety of music. Look for other boats anchored along the southern shore to help locate the home. This is to be enjoyed only from the Lake - not on the shore!!!

 

Sunday, July 4th:

The Annual Boat Parade starts at 2 PM. Everyone can be a judge this year - a link and instructions for voting will be posted on 7/4 prior to the start of the parade. We need more contestants to enter the Parade!!! Decorate a boat, pontoon, canoe or kayak - we need you. We have prizes for all who enter. This year, to show your Club's support for all the merchants who have supported our Parade in past years and in recognition of tough times many have had due to Covid 19, the Roberds Lake Club has purchased gift cards rather than soliciting donations from them.  Sign up at the Roberds Lake Resort or Register Here!

 

Annual Roberds Lake Club Picnic

In 2021 our picnic will be held on Sunday, September 12th at Roberds Lake Resort. Grills and beverages are provided by the Roberds Lake Resort.  Please bring a dish to share and your own meat to grill.  This is a great way to enjoy a late summer evening by the Lake and visit with neighbors.

Social Hour will begin at 5pm and Dinner at 6pm.

Friday Night Happy Hours

6 PM each Friday night at the sunken grass island in the middle of the lake. Come by boat or pontoon - bring a beverage of choice and a dish to share and enjoy the evening with your neighbors.

Family Fun...

Roberds Lake is a great place for fishing, boating, bird watching, and so much more.  We love our lake community and hope that you and your family will enjoy yourselves on this beautiful Minnesota Lake.  

Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting is typically held in early Spring.  Since we were unable to host our meeting in 2020 or this Spring due to Covid restrictions at the time, we are looking at postponing this meeting for 2021 and have it during our annual picnic (September 12th).

Roadside Clean Up

Our annual Roadside Cleanup was held Saturday, April 24th, 2021.  Each year this is an opportunity to clean up our neighborhood.  Thank you to all who helped out!

Nite   to Unite

CHECK OUT ALL THE PICTURES from our 2019, 2018, and 2017 events!!  We organize our own Night to Unite and we love bringing our lake community together, especially since last year's event was cancelled due to Covid-19. This year's event will be Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021.  It is held at the Wells Township Hall on the same evening as the National Night Out event.  This is always an informative evening. The presentation is followed by refreshments provided by The Roberds Lake Club.

Aquatic Invasive Species

Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center and University of Minnesota Extension has opened registration for their next season of the AIS Detectors program. Participants in the AIS Detectors program receive expert training on identifying and reporting AIS as well as base aquatic ecology, prevention, MN rules and regulations training and more. Upon completion of the training, participants are asked to provide 25 hours of annual service in the field of aquatic invasive species. This service can take many forms that we generally categorize as Citizen Science, Stewardship, Outreach/Education, and Program Support. This may include activities specific to your lake or lake area such as monitoring for AIS and local outreach/education. Participants choose what form of service suits them best and are free to create grassroots projects or service. You can find more information at www.aisdetectors.org.
