Remembering a friend

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

The board of directors and members of the East Okoboji Lakes Improvement Corporation (EOLIC) were saddened to learn of the passing of one of our founding members, Dr. Al Klein. His signature was on our articles of incorporation in 1968 and he and his wife Sheila remained members in good standing to this day.

Even in passing, Dr. Klein kept our group in his thoughts as he left wishes for memorials to be directed to the EOLIC.

We want to thank all of you publicly who memorialized Dr. Klein in this manner, along with his wife and entire family. His legacy of lakeside protection and enhancement for East Okoboji, Upper Gar, Minnewashta and Lower Gar will continue through the East Okoboji Lakes Improvement Corporation.


Terry Wilts

Secretary, EOLIC
