Thanks to Our Volunteers

Please take time to thank your neighbors for their efforts to make Lakeport a better place for all of us to live. If you want to volunteer, let the Board or a committee chair know—it’s a great way to get to know people and contribute to your community.

  •  Those who serve on the front line of our community’s battle with Covid-19
  • Those who practice safe distancing and wear masks to keep us all physically well, and those who also perform random acts of kindness or just smile and say hello to others they encounter while they’re outside (even if they don’t know them) to help compensate for our loss of social interactions 

Landscape Projects

  • Gail Pitches and Melanie Clement – co-chairs of the Landscape Committee
  • Melanie Clement – for noticing and photographing County equipment on the Lakeport hill next to the RA trail between Sunrise Valley Drive and the pool, which damaged the small trees and bushes there and allowed invasive pokeweed to take over; the County has offered to plant replacement landscaping
