Welcome to our Beautiful Lake

New to the area??  Been here long?? Either way, let's get acquanted!

The "Friends of Lake Mattoon" is an organization made up of people who are interested in the preservation and improvement of the lake we love.

There is no central gathering place for us lake people other than different "clubs".  This is a good opportunity to join with a neighbor, make new friends and at the same time do some good for our local environment.

We get together at least 4 times a year.  We have potlucks.  We have speakers with informational talks about bank-site erosion remedies.  We also review safety rules for living and having fun at the lake.  We get together for Clean-Up days for the roadside areas around the lake.  (Notice the signs on the Marina road that says ("ADOPTED BY FRIENDS OF LAKE MATTOON").  We have funded fish stocking and have a co-operative relationship with the city of Mattoon.

COME JOIN US !!! Get acquanted, have a good time and help keep Lake Mattoon good for us and the next generation.

Updated information

Friends of Lake Mattoon will have our next meeting on August 23rd.  Clean-up is at 8:00 AM and meeting will follow the clean-up at 11:00 AM.  We will meet at the Beach Pavilion.  We were disappointed with the response to our meetings.  We have money we can spend to beautify our lake but we need feedback from the members to help us decide what to do.  We are still planning on having our picnic in September and will send out information for the date and time.  We also have new T-shirts with the Mattoon Lake Logo for sale.  There is a picture of the shirt on facebook. 

Due were due June 1st.
We have had a good response and members have been mailing in their dues.  Want to thank you for that.  I sure hope to see you at the August Meeting.  If you have any questions or concerns pleas e-mail us.    See you on the 23rd of August.
