The Lake Boon Association Ronnie Fund was established in 1995 in memory of 3-year old Ronnie Pastuck who lost his life in a tragic drowning accident. It is dedicated to the promotion of water safety for the youth (ages 0-16 years) of the Lake Boon community (children of families on the lake or with deeded access, regardless of their LBA membership status).
The Ronnie Fund reimburses fees for swimming lessons, water/boating safety courses, life guard training, etc., for children in the above age range. Reimbursement, through the Lake Boon Association treasurer, is limited to the cost of a Stow Recreation Commission swim session for each child each year, currently $70.
In the past the Ronnie Fund has also sponsored water safety courses. You can contribute to this fund along with your membership. Also, new ideas for water safety programs are welcome. Contact any LBA officer.
