Our Fourth annual KLC BBQ and Fundraiser is just around the corner, and this is our annual opportunity to raise money for dam repairs, water quality, fish stocking, and general lake upkeep. This year we will be holding a Chinese Auction. In addition to raffling off wonderful prizes from local businesses, we are asking for everyone’s help to make this event even more successful.  

We are trying to collect as many items as possible that would typically be raffled off as part of a Chinese Auction. The KLC is asking members and residents to contribute items that can either be raffled off as a single prize or an item that can be combined with other’s donations in a larger basket. If you would like to donate a basket, or a single item (such as wine, gift cards, etc.), please contact Lisa Rich via e:mail at lisarich1@optonline.net before July 25th. She will coordinate your donation.

Thanks in advance for your auction donation. We are looking forward to a successful Chinese Auction!!

July 4th weekend is just a month away and the KLC has a few updated plans for our annual events.

Kayak Rally – Friday, July 4th – 8:00 am - 11:30 am
The Kayak Rally that was so well attended last year will be held from 8:00 am – 11:30 am on July 4th. Although this is called a Kayak Rally, this event is open to any non-motorized watercraft: kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, rafts, etc. Enter the lake at any location, gather as many tickets as you can from about 30 locations around the lake (marked with orange flags), and bring your tickets to the Rt. 28 boat launch by 11:30 am for entry into the prize raffle.

Boat Parade – Friday, July 4th – meet 1:30 pm at One Tree Island
As always, the annual boat parade will circle the lake starting at 1:30 pm on July 4th. This year we will pick up the pace a little and hopefully circle the lake in about 90 minutes. The past few years have had a less than stellar showing for this event, so we encourage as many of you to decorate your vessels and join in the fun. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated boat, the most patriotic boat and the funniest boat.

Ring of FIre – Friday, July 4th – 9:00 pm
Light your flares along the shoreline at 9:00 pm on July 4th. Let’s ring the lake with fire as we celebrate Independence Day. Flares will be available at the Rt. 28 boat launch between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on the 4th, and flares and KLC merchandise will be available after 3:00 pm at Ken and Patty Bosen’s on Rose Street Extension.

White Perch Derby – Saturday, July 5th – 7:00 am – 1:00 pm
Due to the overabundance of white perch in Kinderhook Lake, this year’s derby is designed to encourage you to catch as many white perch as you can, starting at 7:00 am on July 5th. Bring your white perch ‘collection’ to the Rt. 28 boat launch at 1:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded to individuals in several age groups who catch the most fish. All the fish will be donated to a local farm for use as fertilizer. NOTE: this event will take place on Saturday JULY 5th, NOT July 4th.

We hope to see as many of our members and lake friends join in these fun events.

On Monday, April 28th, the contractor completed the sluice pipe relining project. The new pipe was installed and grouted in place; it fit like a glove. The summer boards have been installed at the top of the spillway and we are bringing the lake back up to summer level. With the rain forecast over the next few days, it won’t take long. You can see construction photos on the GALLERY page.
