Online voting now open for Adopt-A-Lake Program calendar contest

RELEASE DATE: November 8, 2019

Tavares –  The public is invited to vote for their favorite photos of Lake County’s waterbodies, which will be included in the 2020 Adopt-a-Lake Program calendar. Online voting is now open at www.lakecountyfl.gov/adoptlake and will close at midnight on Thursday, Nov. 21.

A panel including County Commissioner Wendy Breeden, county staff and volunteers independently rated more than 520 entries; paring them down to a semi-finalist list of 39 photographs. The top 14 pictures will be featured in the calendar and the one that receives the most votes will grace the calendar’s cover. Voting is limited to one vote per day.

The calendar will be available beginning Nov. 26 for a suggested donation of $5, with proceeds benefiting the Adopt-a-Lake Program. It will be available for purchase at several locations, to be announced at a later date. Orders can also be mailed to: Adopt-a-Lake Program, P.O. Box 7800, Tavares, FL 32778. Checks should be made payable to Lake County BCC. If placing a mail order, include $1 additional for postage.

The Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program encourages local civic organizations, individuals and fraternal and business groups to adopt a segment of a lake's shoreline. The program is comprised of three separate components: water-quality monitoring, public education and pollution prevention. Volunteers can select which aspects  of the program best fit their level of interest.

For more information about Lake County’s Adopt-a-Lake Program, the calendar, or to become a volunteer, contact Cathie Catasus at 352-253-1659 or  ccatasus@lakecountyfl.gov.
