Voorheis Vixens
Posted on Jun 6th, 2017
We have established a kayaking club which encompasses everyone who lives in Keatington on both sides of the lake.  The name of the club is Voorheis Vixens.  Our logo is attached along with a photo taken of all of us last year.  Please use photos to show “nubkayers" (a word I made up).
 
We meet every Monday (weather permitting) at 6:30 pm in the vicinity of the 2nd island where the mouth of both halves narrows.  We ask that kayakers be safe and stay close to shore as we meet because boats are still actively on the water until 7:30 pm.
 
Dawn will have a flag on her kayak starting next week.  We also offer merchandise with our new logo.  New kayakers can visit the Voorheis Vixen website and click on the link to purchase merchandise.
 
Exciting times on Lake Voorheis -  Look for us out on the lake with our logo on orange shirts.

Boats Not Allowed in Swim Area
Posted on Jul 15th, 2013
We have had several reports of boats motoring into the swim area to pick up "friends" from the swim platform. This is against the law and a very dangerous situation. Parents, if your children or young adults are allowed to drive your boats, PLEASE remind them to stay out of the swim area. We will be monitoring the situation and reporting violators to proper the authorities. Two children lost there lives in a boating accident last week on Sylvan Lake. We don't want any accidents at the KHA beach.
Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach!
Posted on Apr 15th, 2013
This is a reminder to all that Dogs are not allowed on the beach! People have been allowing their dogs onto the beach and this is not going to be tolerated! If you see someone with their dog on the beach. Please remind them it is against the rules. They are the ones at fault and the need to be reminded of this.
