Proposed SLW Logo Change
Posted on Jan 17th, 2017
  Quite some time ago, the Communications Committee decided to run a Logo contest for SLW Members and their families. Anyone interested was to submit proposals that would simplify the original logo design and make it easier to reproduce on wearables and other types of items. After looking at all the entries, one particular design stood out from those that were submitted.
     Betsy Mikula is the designer of the original Logo. You can read her story about how the original Logo came to be, compare the two logos, view the new Logo displayed in various applications, and take the one question survey by Clicking here.
 
The Dream Called Lake Auman
Posted on Nov 30th, 2016
A Brief History of Lake Auman
(An Oral History Through Interviews with Mr. Fred Lawrence)
 
     Originally, the majority of the land which would make up Seven Lakes West belonged to Clyde Auman, Billy Johnson and the MacDonald family. Mr. Fred Lawrence bought assembled acreage in 1976. He hired the engineering firm of Pate, Mullen & Associates to lay out the lake and design the dam.
 
 
     There were several ponds and a five-acre lake (Watts Pond) on the property. Mr. Lawrence found that there were approximately 30 springs within the property and he had the engineering firm test these springs to determine if there was sufficient water supplied by these springs to insure that the lake behind the dam would be filled.
     
     After hiring a Raleigh firm to test drill bore holes every 100 feet across the site of the proposed dam to test for clay content, the engineering firm approved the site and said that it would cost about $1,000,000 to complete the dam. These cost estimates escalated when the Army Corp of Engineers changed the specifications for earthen dams following the failure of a dam in Taccoa, GA. At that time Mr. Lawrence had already spent about $1,300,000 and the dam still required 35 to 40 feet to completion. The base of the dam had to be increased by 100 feet in width.
 
 
     During this time, interest rates had climbed from 7% to over 20% and gas prices had risen from $0.35 to a $1.35 a gallon. Mr. Lawrence did not have the capital to finish the project and was forced to sell the whole development to the Prigden brothers.

LASC Fish Habitat Project
Friday, February 10th
DOCKS AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR FISH HABITAT PROJECT
     For the twentieth year, the Lake Auman Sports Club’s Christmas tree fish habitat project is under way.  Each year the Sports Club has been placing Christmas trees under docks around Lake Auman to provide small fish with protective cover to escape from larger predators.  Last year, forty-seven trees were placed under twenty-six docks. This annual program has contributed to an increased fish population and the excellent fishing everyone has enjoyed on our lake.  For it to continue successfully again this year, we need docks to put the trees under. An average sized dock can accommodate two to four trees depending on the size of each tree. To learn more about this essential program, read more>
NEW DEADLINE:  FEBRUARY 3, 2017
The new deadline to have your dock included in this year's Lake Auman Sports Club fish habitat project is February 3, 2017.
