Deer Lake Frolic
The Deer Lake Assn Frolic takes place at Camp Hiawatha in August of each year. The Frolic is a great time for our community to come together and serves as the DLA's major fundraiser for the year. Neighbors, guests, and the general public are welcome to attend the Frolic. You don't need to be a member of the DLA to attend. The Frolic includes great food: top sirloin BBQ, corn-on-the-cob, bread, beans, salad, and Dairy Queen dessert. The Frolic also includes live music, door prizes, games for adults and kids, silent auction, and more.
If you have family/guests that Saturday, consider bringing them to the Frolic instead of cooking. Tickets are $10 each. Children age 6 and under are free. If you are busy that day or are otherwise unable to attend, please consider buying tickets anyway simply to support the good work of the DLA. Buy one for each family member!
Funds earned from the Frolic are put to good use on Deer Lake. The DLA provides leadership and a collective voice for preserving Deer Lake's fragile ecosystem, rugged shoreline, numerous uninhabited islands, and the magnificent hues and clarity of its water. We are currently focused on keeping Zebra Mussels and other invasives out of Deer Lake. We are also active in the community, sponsoring environmental education, funding two annual scholarships for graduating local high school seniors, and coordinating regular clean-up projects.
A community event put on by the DLA for everyone!
