TAVARES — The public cast more than 1,500 votes in an online contest, choosing the top 14 photos to be featured in Lake County’s 2018 Adopt-a-Lake Calendar. The top-scoring picture – a seaplane landing on Lake Dora taken by Marsha Gandy – will grace the calendar’s front cover.

The runner-up photos are included in a special section on the back of the calendar.

Residents and visitors submitted nearly 200 photos of Lake County waterbodies to the 2018 Adopt-a-Lake photo contest. A committee narrowed those down to 30, and they were then placed in an online gallery for voting.

The Adopt-a-Lake calendars are available for a suggested donation of $5 at the following Tavares locations: the Lake County Water Lab at 12923 County Landfill Road, the Solid Waste Administration Office at 13130 County Landfill Road and the Lake County Administration building at 315 W. Main St.

Calendars may also be ordered by mailing a check to Adopt-a-Lake Program, P.O. Box 7800, Tavares, FL 32778. If requesting a calendar by mail, an additional $1 should be included for postage and handling.

The Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program encourages local civic organizations, individuals and fraternal and business groups to adopt a segment of a lake’s shoreline. The program is comprised of three separate components: Water-quality monitoring, public education and pollution prevention. Volunteers can select which aspects of the program best fit their level of interest.
