Hello Everyone, my name is Caleb. I'm on the board of directors for Lake Paran. I grew up near by and spent many days there enjoying all that the lake has to offer; swimming, fishing, kayaking, community, friends, and much much more. I love the lake!!! I joined the board a few years ago to help give back to the community. The lake gave me so many great times as a child, and I decided it was time for me to give back to the place where I have made so many memories. We are in the process of trying to get a new fishing dock. As some of you know, we had to remove the old dock because it was unsafe and falling apart. If you look at our page, you can find out how to help us achieve our goal of getting a new dock to replace the old one. I hope the lake holds a special place in your heart like it does mine. I know times are tough, but, if you are able, please think about giving back to your community and helping make the lake better place. Lake Paran is a nonprofit organization that relies on our community for support. You help us now, we give you more opportunities in the future!!! We thank you in advance for all of your generosity!!!
