Our annual member meeting is scheduled for September 13th, 2018 aboard the Pearl of the Lake! The paddleboat will leave the dock at 6:00 pm and return around 7:30 pm, depending on the sunset's allure. LPLA will thank all of its members with refreshments, giveaways, and short presentation. We also look forward to hearing your stories throughout the evening. This is a much anticipated event and one of many benefits of being part of the LPLA community!
Location: Stockholm, WI
Plan an evening outdoors with friends and neighbors to bring our Season Eight to a close. There will be polka music, polka dancing and Wisconsin's finest beers. Get ready to kick up your heels and say Hello Summer! Reserve tickets online, email or by phone. Advance tickets highly recommended.
The event is sponsored by the Stockholm Merchants Association (SMA) to benefit the group's non-profit organizations, including LPLA!
Location: Lake City, MN
The Lake City Chamber of Commerce has been donating a portion of Tour de Pepin (TDP) proceeds to LPLA for years. Last year, LPLA registered Pepie for the race. This year, LPLA is going to have a larger presence. Afterall, we are on the #RoadtoRestoration!
This year, riders will have the opportunity to join Pepie's team and help fundraise for LPLA! We will be setting membership goals to encourage Pepie to do even crazier activities this year.
During the race, riders will notice LPLA road signs with fun, and sometimes entertaining, information about Lake Pepin. Those that complete their race in Stockholm and catch the ferry back to Lake City, will enjoy the narration of LPLA Executive Director, Rylee Main.
This year will also include an afterparty back in Lake City that will include live music, food trucks, and Sociable Cider Works!

Festival-goers can expect to see award-winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, Native American and indigenous cultures.
This year’s selections will not only take audiences to some of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet but instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us.
