FiveStar Initiative (click link for more info)

DLA’s FiveStar Initiative asks local lake service providers, marine dealers, and resorts/camps to implement AIS (invasives) safeguards, then encourages DLA members and Deer Lake property owners to patronize those firms.  If you hire a lake service provider to install/remove your dock or lift, if you need service from a local marine dealer, or if you need space for overflow guests or for a meeting, family reunion or special event, please move your business to a FiveStar lake service provider, marine dealer, and/or resorts/camps.  They are working hard to keep AIS out, Deer Lake water quality high, and to earn your business.
