December 2018 marks the fifth anniversary of Friends of Lake Panorama. The first meeting of the 501(c)3 nonprofit charity’s board of directors was held December 3, 2013. Since then, the group has made steady progress towards its goal of improving recreational amenities at Lake Panorama.
Over the past five years, more than $800,000 has flowed through Friends of Lake Panorama to support projects both large and small. Of that total, $150,000 came from the Lake Panorama Association, as Friends helped leverage the association’s limited funds for amenities.
