The following is a list of your Lake Latoka Association board members and volunteers. We are always looking for new people to join!
Contact Chris Block firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help or would like more information on current opportunities.
Chris’s family moved to Alexandria in 2014 after living in St Paul for 10 years. His wife Amber received a position at the Hospital as a Nurse Anesthetist. Chris is a Realtor who also invests in real estate. Both graduated from the U of M (Twin Cities). The Block family always wanted to move out of the cities into a more rural area since Amber grew up in a small town outside of Brainerd, but still close to the cities since Chris’s family is there. Living on a lake was a big draw, so Alexandria was a perfect fit. Chris’s hobbies include: fishing, hunting, traveling, & golf.
Connie and her husband, Randy, actively farm west of Hoffman and are stewards to the land and their Century Farms. They planted their 41st crop together this spring. In 2012 they were honored by becoming Grant County Farm Family of the Year. Connie has also served many years on the Runestone Telcom Board, Township Board as treasurer, Library Board- a nonprofit board, and several other local boards. When not working on the farm or in the fields, she enjoys her three little grandbabies, Lake Latoka, gardening, reading, and traveling.
Gary Deick and his wife, Gloria, have lived on the lake for 20 years. Gary was a past board member for seven years, and three of those he was president. Gloria was involved in the Association as well in writing the newsletter. Gary was instrumental in the sediment pond fight, and is passionate about other pollution issues on the lake. He enjoys fishing and having his children and grandchildren visit to spend quality time on the lake.
Paul Wheeler and his wife, Donna, have had a seasonal cabin on Lake Latoka since 1980. In 2007 they made it their permanent residence. Paul retired as a Special Agent, with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Criminal Investigation Division, after 25 years. They enjoy spending “lake time” with their two children, three grandsons, and two granddaughters. Paul is looking forward to serving on the LLPOA, getting to know more Lake Latoka residents, and helping to solve lake quality issues.
