Again this year, Jay Gestwicki, owner of Magnolia Coffee in Charlotte, NC is making available to the Association his artisan roasted coffees. Monies raised will go towards our water quality projects, in memory of his father, Ron Gestwicki. We very much appreciate Jay’s generosity as he donates all the coffee. Please support the effort and drink delicious coffee at the same time. Visit  for more info.

So Drink Up!  Your purchase makes a difference right here at the Five Kezar Ponds!


Christmas is coming early this year to the Five Kezars: We will be selling cherry wood Christmas tree ornaments with a laser-cut loon cutout, “Five Kezar Ponds” inscription, and a red ribbon for $10 each. A wonderful way to remember the Five Kezars in the middle of winter!  

The popular light blue decals with a picture of a loon sold several years ago are back again. We will be selling these for $3 for one or 2 for $5. Cars, notebooks, water bottles, bicycles, computers etc. all need this classy reminder of your favorite ponds. 

All monies raised will go to important water quality testing by Lakes Environmental Association. For purchasing these items, contact: Rick & Weezie Johnson, Morris & Linda Amar, or Carol Gestwicki. (See end of newsletter for contact information.)
