Welcome to Lake Keesus!
Lake Keesus is a beautiful 237 acre lake located in the Town of Merton, Waukesha County, WI. The LKAA - Lake Keesus Advancement Association was originally developed in 1930 and its main purpose is to protect and promote the interests of the people residing on the shores of Lake Keesus.
Lake Keesus has approximately 5.3 miles of shoreline and 216 houses. It is made up of 5 bays - Bull's Bay, Marquardt's Bay, Marshall Bay, North Bay, and Rice's Bay. The deepest part of the lake measures 42 feet. Please see the maps page for more information.
4th of July
Thanks to Steve & Ann Belter for planning and hosting the annual LKAA July 4 Kiddee Parade and Picnic. An estimated 258 Keesus Kids, their relatives and friends took part in the festivities. All 250 hotdogs were gone in a flash. Thank you also to our fireworks crew of Terry Reinders, Tom Schreibel, Ray Warell, Gene Wiesehuegel, Matt Kolbow, Andy Slaby, Gene Klees, and Tim & Tracy, owners of Five Star Fireworks. We also recognize the efforts of Ken Kaestner and Sam Brunclik who provided musical entertainment, and to Sandi Hora and Dana Schreibel who donated and served the food to Terry and crew.
Thank you to Tricia and Brett Engelking for hosting the LKAA Wine Tasting on March 29th. A great time was had by all.
Over 100 Keesans and kids visited the Chili Dump this year. Played lots of hockey, ate some great chili, and caught up on lake news since the Winter Party. Thanks to Mary Poehls, Greg & Brenda Larson, Kenn Belter, Patty Mueller and Connie Reddy for making the event special.
At it's first Board meeting of the year, your LKAA Board voted to make donations to Camp Whitcomb/Mason in the amount of $400.00 to help pay campers fees, and as a memorial to LKAA members Gene Christiaansen, Ron Hora, Marie Konan, Fred Kandler, Jim Minessale, and Bob Schlidt who died in 2013.
Thanks to the approximately 75 Keesans who attended the holiday party. The food was great as always - thanks to the Keesans who brought their tastiest delacacies. Thank you also to Jamie Burns for the superb wine selection and to Connie Reddy for her photographic efforts. (see link below for photos). Also a big THANK YOU to the crew of decorators who toiled Saturday morning to beautify the hall.
