The Connect & Concierge meets the first Friday of each month. During this time, we review all inquiries and assign them to a member to follow up with you. In addition to connecting you with community groups and opportunities, we intend to host a few events throughout the year where we can gather together to enjoy a sporting or theater event, day at the beach, social hour, etc.
We look forward to meeting you and are pleased you chose Willmar Lakes Area. It’s a great place!

From our community volunteers

I am excited to make a difference and feel confident to do so!

Alumni, Inaugural Class of 2015

“I'm proud to volunteer and support the efforts of Vision 2040 because creating a healthy community takes a collabortive effort. No one person or entity can create a community where people want to live and work and play, but working together we can create it. Vision 2040 started with an inclusive effort to bring together people from across our region to articulate their vision of the future of our region's communities. The goals that emerged from that vision offer everyone the opportunity to share in the collaborative work necessary to create a healthy and vibrant region--and that's a good thing for all of us.”

Dr. Douglas Allen, Ridgewater College

“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”

Ken Warner, Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce
