To the Friends of Lake Orange
    As I communicated to you last year at this time,  the board members of  'Friends of Lake Orange'  have been engaged in special negotiations with County Commissioners, County Manager/County Staff, and the town of Hillsborough to reach a written agreement to better manage the water resources of Lake Orange.  This agreement contains a provision to minimize withdrawals from Lake Orange so that water levels are within 24 inches from ' full  pool'  (615') -- during the high recreation season from April through October -- to the extent possible considering adequate seasonal waterfall.
Friends of Lake Orange Picnic 2011

Great fun was had by all at the 2011 Annual Friends of Lake Orange Picnic.  A catered lunch was provided and several games were set up and enjoyed by everyone.  Over 40 "Friends" came out to enjoy the day.  A brief recap of the efforts over the past year by the FLO board was presented by Buzz Koenig.  Our new T-Shirts where unveiled and made available for sale among many compliments.  We also proudly displayed our new FLO banner at the registration tent.

The 2nd Annual Kayak Race was held with five participants competing for the prize, a very special LED Flashlight from Cree.  The winner was veteran kayak racer Owen Parker who was followed closely behind by Christer Andersson with Buzz Koenig right on his stern.  Pictures of the event as well as the whole day can be seen below.
