PLEASE JOIN US!
We have a General Membership Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 19th at 7pm at the Richfield Township Hall on M15. As always, our meetings are open to the public and we want to invite anyone who frequents or lives on Holloway to join us. Our guest speaker will be Lapeer County’s new Sheriff Scott McKenna. He is looking forward to meeting some of his residents and hearing any concerns on his side of the lake.
The 2017 HLA Spring Clean-up is scheduled for the following Saturday, April 22nd (Earth Day) 2019 at 10 a.m. As usual, we will meet at the Stanley Rd Tubes where coffee, donuts and empty garbage bags will be provided. Layered clothing, hats, boots and work gloves are highly recommended. We have our Clean-up down to about two hours work for all involved, so if you have other plans for the day you can schedule accordingly. We encourage everyone to participate in this early spring activity to prepare our shorelines for the boating season and “newbee’s” are always welcome. Our “rain-out” alternative day is Sunday, April 23.

Holloway Today: Challenges and Changes
Shoreline Erosion: Picturesque Goose Neck Point becomes narrower each year. Trees are tipped over into the water in many areas. The Reservoir becomes increasingly wider but more shallow. What will it look like in 50 years?
Water Levels: There are many demands on the waters of Holloway. The City of Flint requires constant flow for sanitation plants. Down-river recreational users call for increased summertime flow. In the dry summer months, low water levels on Holloway harm recreation, wildlife and the ecosystem of the water.
Environmental Concerns: The potential impact of The Richfield Landfill on Holloway Reservoir and its surroundings demands activism by the public to insure a safe environment and to maintain the natural beauty of the area.
The increase in the numbers of seagulls requires efforts to control them in order to prevent the damage they cause to property and their contamination of the water.
Regulatory Intrusion: The Holloway Reservoir is heavily regulated by Government, and citizen activism is required to balance the competing interests of the environmental, industrial and recreational communities.
We have been given permission by Nate Harasim to use his song “Holloway Cruise” on our website. Nate was just a young teenager when he wrote this song while sitting on his dock in Zone 4. It is simply beautiful! Make sure you have your speakers on!
