The following is a list of your Lake Latoka Association board members and volunteers. We are always looking for new people to join!
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). Alexandria proved a good fit as the family always wanted to move out of the cities into a more rural area, but still close to the cities since Chris’s family is there. Chris’s hobbies include: fishing, hunting, traveling, & golf.
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.
