About Your Lake James Association

Lake James Association was formed over fifty years ago “for the purpose of making the Lake James area a better place in which to live…” Today we still strive to protect and improve our lake environment. Our mission statement that was rewritten just a few years ago states: OUR MISSION IS TO AID AND PROMOTE THE ENHANCEMENT AND PRESERVATION OF LAKE RESOURCES, LAND USE, AND SAFE RECREATION OPPORTUNITIES OF THE LAKE. We realize this is a very broad statement but LJA has a broad range of events, activities, projects, and benefits to accomplish. Just to name a few:

  • Feature List Item

    LJA provides a wonderful lake directory each spring for a comprehensive list of residents, members, business advertisers, information, entertainment, photos, and even recipes.

  • Feature List Item

    LJA contracts a solid waste removal firm for lower rates to its members.

  • Feature List Item

    LJA has an ongoing project with the help of grants from the Indiana Lakes and Rivers Enhancement to identify, diagnose, discover feasibility, and finally construct improvements to the Lake James watershed, especially the Croxton Ditch project.

  • Copy of Feature List Item

    LJA sponsors many activities, holds events, and makes contributions to organizations (such as SCURRT) in the area.

    Lake James Association tries to keep its members informed through Constant Contact e-mails, newsletters, directory articles, meetings and Facebook. We are always open to suggestions, concerns, and questions. Just talk to your director.
