The Sylvia Lake Association has been "preserving, protecting and promoting the welfare of Sylvia Lake since 1968."

The organization is managed by volunteers. The organization is funded by fundraising projects, donations and membership dues.

The Association provides community social activities: a summer kick off party, concert, community picnic (currently on haitus) a boat parade, regatta trophies, Ice Out mugs, annual meeting social hour, a website, an online store, data management, photo contest awards, and other community projects. In addition, dues pay for water testing and public safety projects.

The Association also provides technical assistance for the installation and maintenance of the Milfoil/Benthic Mat Barriers to abate Eurasion Milfoil. And when necessary, the Association setps up to defend the lake against the invasion of forest tent caterpillars.

Members are informed about community activities through special Association mailings, newsletters and of course, this website.
