The Fox Lake Preservation Organization was created sometime around 1954, by people who love the lake and were concerned about quality of life for the waters of Fox Lake and the area of Fox Lake. Prior to helping organize the Inland Lake District, the Fox Lake Preservation Organization was involved in many large projects for the lake such as dam repair, fish stocking, aeration to prevent winter fish kill, purchasing of buoys to mark the aerator area, paying the electric bill to run them, buying an oxygen tester for use by DNR and then the Township, start up of installation of rock beds for walleye habitat, building of fish cribs, running a weed cutter, volunteering of time for all major jobs, working with DNR for jobs such as fish shocking surveys and fish stocking, and donation toward water rescue equipment…..
Once the Inland Lake District was formed, many of these larger jobs were performed by them and the DNR through grant programs. Now the FLPO still stocks fish, works on fish habitat, furnishes the Town Park with tables, grills, handicap fishing pier and a band/picnic shelter. We donate toward many recreational activities such as annual fireworks, Concerts in the Park, and Friends Fishing/Pontoon Ride Outing.
Everyone who lives in Fox Lake should join and become active in this group. Your voice can be heard through us, even if you don’t live here full time. You get to vote on this Board and if something big comes up that affects our lake or area, a consensus of our members can be forwarded to "the powers that be."
