Roberds Lake Community
Due to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 Pandemic, this year's Annual Meeting has been canceled.
Our annual Roadside Cleanup event is scheduled to be held Saturday, April 25th, 2020. This is an opportunity to clean up our neighborhood. Between last years cancellation due to weather, and our fall tornados in 2018 we will have our hands full! Come to the Wells Township Hall Parking Lot at 9am, pick the location & area you want to walk and we will give you a vest along with some garbage bags. Please also remember to wash your hands and practice social distancing.
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. This year's event will be Tuesday, August 4th 2020. 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.
Since the year 2000, The Roberds Lake Club has been organizing the Annual 4th of July Boat Parade. With the exception of 2018, where for the first time ever, we unfortunately had to cancel the parade due to weather conditions. We tried to hold off and delay as long as we could, but things did not shape up for us to hold the event.
Participants met at the Roberds Lake Resort at 4:30 after the storm, and everyone still received prizes. Thank you to all that helped organizing the event, to everyone who took time to decorate your boat (many of you still took a lap around the lake later in the day), and to all of the generous vendors and local businesses for donating prizes.

In 2020 our picnic will be held on Sunday, September 13th starting at 5pm at Roberds Lake Resort. Stop by to get your Free Can Hugger!! 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.
4th of July Storm 2018
Jeff Zahn (lake resident) gave a great presentation at our annual lake meeting about the concern about lake erosion and what we can do as a community to work together on these efforts to help this situation.

We will submit all submissions as a group if you are interested in contributing to these efforts. Please submit no later than April 30th, 2019.
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.
On September 20th, 2018 a tornado hit our little slice of paradise on Roberds Lake. Despite the large amounts of destruction, our lake neighborhood and community came together and showed so much support and kindness to all of us. From picking up trees, cleaning away debris, hauling away branches, delivering food and supplies and more... this community really came together during such a tragic event. We can't thank everyone enough for all of their love and support!

While we do have many of them, there are several we are missing. Using email saves the Club mailing costs. If you are new on the Lake or have not received email from the Club, or your email has changed please let us know so we can get you added to our email list.
Membership cards were mailed out in mid December. Our yearly dues for Club membership is $25 and is effective January- December 2020.

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.
