50 and 75 Year Pins

BLACK OAK LAKE 50/75 YEAR AWARD PROGRAM

This program is designed to acknowledge those who have accumulated a long history at Black Oak Lake. The lapel pin is awarded to those who fulfill the requirements below:  

  • You must have spent at least one night on a Black Oak Lake fronting property in each of 50 or 75 calendar years. The years need not be consecutive.
  • A pre-birth visit while being carried by your mother does not count but certainly a pre-first birthday visit does count.  
  • No credit is given for marrying a longer term person.
  • Property ownership is not required.

The program director (currently Kathy Kelly or Walt Bates) receives your statement of eligibility and awards the pins. Their contact information is in the directory. The honor system is used here and there is no charge for the award.
