Pond Hockey Tournament & Ice Skating

January 2025

The Fairmont Youth Hockey Association does a great job of increasing the enjoyment and respect of our lakes at an early age. In concert with the Marina Lodge, they sponsor a yearly pond hockey event with 5 rinks on Sisseton Lake by the Lodge. Before and after the rinks are then available to the general public for any type of skating.

Spring Lake Cleanup

May 2024

Over the years, at previous cleanups around the lakes, an astonishing variety of items have been retrieved: Hundreds of tires, TV monitors, computers, vehicles and even a broken paddle boat. Mostly we collect many cans, bottles, pacifiers, logs, liter, and plastic of all sorts. Some is accidental and some is intentionally dumped. Some trash, like electrical junk, contributes to drinking water pollution. Our Saturday morning efforts will attack the problem. We hope this will help all Fairmonters focus on clean lakes all year round.

Typical Helpers (hope to see you again):
The City of Fairmont, Pheasants Forever, Martin County Conservation Club, Martin SWCD, Boy Scouts, FFA, 4H, FHS students. Thanks!

FLF strives to educate people on their stewardship responsibilities. It’s all about taking pride in the town, asking people to keep their yard clean and to keep junk out of the streets and away from the storm sewers.
