“This is a great way for residents of all ages, businesses and visitors to Lake Country to get involved and really show us what makes our community special,” said Reyna Seabrook, corporate services manager. “As we work to improve our website, these photos will add a unique perspective that will showcase what it truly means to be part of our community.”

Lake Country says it wants to to refresh the community website with the goal of making it easier for citizens to find information and to do business with the municipality. While the work to review and improve the web site will take place this fall and winter, citizens, visitors, students and businesses are invited to look through their camera lens and capture what they love best about Lake Country.

The district is accepting photos for the following categories:

The deadline for submission of photos is Friday, August 25, 2017.

Anyone can submit as many photos as they like, but each name will only be entered in the draw once. The draw will take place Monday, August 28th.
