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.
Twenty-six Keesus neighbors braved the cold Autumn day to carve puupkins and enjoy refreshments on Park Drive. Thanks go to hosts Jim & Cathy Hazzard and Greg & Brenda Larson for doing a great job putting the event together.
Keesus Fun Run/Walk
Thanks to Vice-President Janna Fritz for putting together the LKAA Walk/Run last weekend. 23 hardy Keesans participated in the event which ended with Bar-B-Q and liquids at the DuFresne home on Park Drive.
36 Keesans joined together for the LKAA Annual Meeting on Sept.14th. Besides reviewing the many LKAA activities of 2014 and hearing of upcoming LKAA activities, we elected Janna Fritz as Vice -President, Kenn Belter as Treasurer, and Mary Poehls , Dana Schumacher , Irene Ross-Tranchita , and Dan Reddy as Directors. All enjoyed the Packer's game after the meeting.
Thank you to Jamie & Katie Burns for organizing this year's LKAA Keesus Koncert. The band Sawdust Symphony did a fantasic job of entertaining us all night long. Thank you also to the Bucher /Engelking /Tranchita families for the use of their properties at the southern end of North Bay.
