'Stars and Stripes' 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Vermilion-on-the-Lake Lot Owners Association
no longer owns the "Clubhouse".
In 2006, the Association formed the Vermilion on the Lake Historic Community
Charitable Trust, Inc. and transferred the property to the Trust by vote of the
membership. Our revised mission includes
involvement in the security
of the area through our "Block Watch" program and other initiatives,
and the general
promotion of the well being of the neighborhood and city. Our Trustees
also act as the core

they afforded us
while we transitioned the property to the Charitable Trust. We could not
have done it without them.
