About the Foundation

Our Mission

Our mission is to have a useful and interesting website full of information to help guide you around our lakes, have fun learning a little history and help us all understand our responsibilities for our waters.

Fairmont Lakes Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed to promote the stewardship of our city’s lakes. Our general purpose is to lead and educate our community and its visitors to take responsibility for the quality and care of our city’s lakes while increasing awareness of the need to preserve and enhance the value of these natural resources.

Recent Projects

During the last year, we are pleased to announce a number of projects
In January, the Foundation hosted the 5 th Annual Ice Fishing Tournament where about 220 participants enjoyed the event. We worked with Visit Fairmont to expand this event.
The May Contest has been canceled for 2020, but we are planning a tournament in the fall.
Shore cleanups draw a loyal group who come equipped with waders, boats, pontoons and kayaks to assist. Again, these events are pending this year.
Perhaps our most notable effort, with assistance from the City of Fairmont and Sommer Outdoors, is the addition of the newly constructed kayak/paddle board station on the north side of Gomsrud Park.
