Online voting now available for Lake County Adopt-A-Lake Program 2013 calendar photographs

RELEASE DATE: November 6, 2012

TAVARES —The Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program is conducting an online poll that allows the community to vote for the winning photographs to be included in the 2013 Adopt-a-Lake Calendar. Visit the Adopt-a-Lake webpage at www.lakecountyfl.gov keyword: adopt to place your vote. Online voting will end Sunday, Nov. 25 at 11:59 p.m.

A panel of volunteers made up of County employees, a student intern and guest judge County Commission Chairman Leslie Campione, independently rated nearly 200 entries, paring them down to a semi-finalist list of 26 photographs. The top 14 vote-getters will be featured in the calendar and the photograph receiving the most votes will grace the calendar’s cover.

Adopt-a-Lake calendars, which include pictures from water bodies in Lake County, will be available by mid-December for a suggested donation of $5 from the Lake County Public Works Department, Water Resource Management Laboratory. To order a calendar, contact Cathie Catasus by email at ccatasus@lakecountyfl.gov or by phone at 352-253-1686. 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.

The Adopt–a–Lake Program is similar in some aspects to the County's Adopt-a-Roadway Program. The program encourages local civic organizations, individuals and fraternal and business groups to adopt a segment of a lake's shoreline.

The Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program is comprised of three separate components: Water-quality monitoring, public education and pollution prevention. Volunteers can elect which components of the program best fit their desired level of participation.

For information on becoming a volunteer, contact Cathie Catasus at ccatasus@lakecountyfl.gov.
