Thanks so much to Joanna Cloud for her marvelous job over the past years with the Lake anier Association. Although the LLA as well as Chattahoochee Riverkeeper have some excellent staff members, much of the work they do is through many volunteers giving their time and talents to these organizations.

Even if you do not live on the water, do not utilize the lake for recreation or do not visit the many nice parks and picnicking areas, I am sure most knowledgeable folks in Forsyth and Hall counties appreciate the value of the quality of life and financial benefits derived from the river and the lake.

To make both the LLA and Riverkeeper work so well takes excellent management to guide these wonderful folks, and Joanna Cloud has done a fantastic job and will leave some tough shoes to fill.
