News & Events


Charmaine Dam will be closed Tuesday, November 12 in order to repair the void that was discovered on the downslope and a small area under the road surface.
Chance Construction will be here to do the work on that void and while they are here, we are going to have them drill some holes on the spillway to make sure there are no voids. This is why we have lowered the lake level so that the water is not coming over the spillway.
When Chance came out to drill the holes on the downslope, it did not look like the spillway was affected but we want to make sure.
As of this report, they only anticipate the work taking one to two days and of course there will be a need to let the concrete on the roadway harden. Hopefully we can use the steel plate that is in place now to cover the repaired area so that we can drive over it while it cures.
We will keep you posted.

Come Join the Fun!!
6th Annual Ivanhoe Christmas

DECEMBER 7, 2019

It is time to get ready for our annual boat parade!! We are hoping to have record participation this year! So get some lights on your boat and come join the fun! 

Please register by either emailing or calling one of the numbers below. Last year we didn’t have many boats and we want to make this a banner year with more boats than ever! 

Boats will gather in front of Tommy and Patsy Morris’s dock (Charmaine South) at 5:30pm, the parade will begin at 6:00pm. 

Cathy’s boat will lead the parade with Santa in the last boat. He will disembark at the Community Center and the parade will continue on around the lake. Please keep boats in line as formed and follow the lead boat.

We always have a large crowd to view the parade and to enjoy the festivities in the Community Center afterwards so let’s make this a real crowd-pleaser! 

Santa will be giving out gifts for all the kids and we encourage photos with Santa!

Once boat parade is finished, join us at the Community Center for the activities! Get your picture taken with Santa!

We also encourage homeowners to decorate their homes lakeside so our entire lake will be sparkling with Christmas lights, and especially your docks.

We look forward to hearing from you!
