Lynda DeLallo here just hoping you can pass along that a yellow floating dock washed up in the wind last night. I know they are expensive but I don’t know how heavy they are to retrieve. Maybe the owner can come by and figure it out before it gets damaged? 2633 Otisco Valley Rd on the southern cove shore. My phone is 315-430-7823. Thanks!


We all know how special Otisco Lake is to all of us.

This Saturday we all have an opportunity to witness the lake in pictures at the showing of Jack Kurtz' work. Please join us at Baltimore Woods to appreciate the beauty that is our lake. Best to all for a happy & healthy New Year!! Tim

Mission: To preserve the health, beauty and welfare of our lake, not only today, but for future generations.                                  

You can make a difference!
