2017 Sponsorship Opportunities!

As you all know, last year we came together in a hurry and flew by the seat of our pants through the season.  This year, we wanted to be a little more organized in our approach to fundraising and sponsorship opportunities….so we came up with something a little different. We wanted to incorporate some of the feedback we got last year which was to offer the opportunities earlier in the year, and allow for people to sponsor the season rather than coming back with each event.

Know any businesses impacted by our presence on the river or who might be willing to contribute their support of our cause? You can download the LFHOA Donation Letter to learn more about our cause and this year’s progress and our LFHOA Sponsorship Form to donate to  a specific event or events, or the entire season.

River rats are committed to patronizing the businesses who are in this with us. We appreciate your support!

LFHOA Official Membership Roster

As we shared in our last community meeting, the definition of who we represent is important now. If you filled out a form at the meeting, no action is required by you at this time. If you have not yet filled out one of our official membership applications, please print out the attached copy and mail it back to the address below.  We are aware many of you submitted addendums to us, to show your support. This is a little different. We must have a signed hard copy on file for each cabin that is still “in” with us on this plan and partner with SEI to develop it.  For now, this membership is limited to residents on Shelly and Beshore,  who are  or are trying to become (transfer not completed) licensees, and we only need one representative member from each lot.

This is the just one of the  first steps for us as our plan is still currently in progress. We will open this up to our friends on other islands  at a later stage, we’re still all in this together.

“What is a Poker Run?!?!”

So we were asked a great question!!!
“What is a Poker Run?!?!”


If you were here in 2012 you will remember all of the fun had that day as we came together as a community after Bill & Betty Little lost their beloved cabin to a fire early in the season. We spend nearly a full summer planning the fun & giving that would follow!
After a fun day on Shelly we raised enough $ to donate over $4,000 to the Londonderry Township Fire Department. Which lead to great friendship & support that carries through today!

We are holding our 2016 LFHOA Poker Run on September 3rd!

So here’s what you can expect!
Fun! Community! Giving! & Fundraising!

The Poker Run will start at the picnic area.
The donation is $10.00 (kids 12 & under are free.

Once you get your wrist band & playing card, you will move around the island stopping at different stations. You can walk, run, golf cart, tractor, bike, dance (whatever you feel like)

Each station is hosted by island volunteers who have been busy planning their themes and fun. (Think a cross between a carnival, pub crawl, and tailgate:)

Some of the stations are just for fun & will have games, drinks, &/or treats & some will include playing cards.

This is where the “Poker” comes in!

At each of the 5 card stations you will pick a card, adding to your “hand”. You will pick up your final card at the Finish line! Whoever has the best poker hand at the end wins!

We will have a prize table & other fun at the start/finish line!

We will be donating 20% of our entry donations to the Londonderry Township Fire Co. Everything else goes to our fight to ‪#‎savetheislands‬

Come PLAY with us!
