From the Desk of Mayor Bruce Bebo

Welcome Friends;

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit and enjoy our wonderful City.  Silver Lake has so much to offer its residents and visitors.  For our residents, Silver Lake is a small town with many of the big town amenities.  Our two elementary schools offer great educational opportunities for our young families. 

Our community takes great pride in the fact that we have our own Police, Fire, & Ambulance service. It brings great comfort and a sense of security to our residents to know that if ever needed, these services are only minutes away.

During the spring and summer months, there are many activities that range from hiking along the Luce Line Trail, relaxing by our newly completed Bruce Maresh Aquatic Center, enjoying some volleyball, basketball, or softball, or even throwing a ringer or two in the horseshoe pits. During the summer months we have a great group of volunteers that pull together and sponsor the “Music in the Park” on Thursday evenings which in turn leads us right into our annual “Pola-Czesky Days” celebration the first weekend of August. If you are fortunate to be around for our celebration, you will get to witness almost all of our great organizations in action. Trust me, you will be impressed!

There are also many activities that take place during the fall, winter, and spring months. Some of those events are the Sportsman’s Club Turtle Soup feed, a Free Will Thanksgiving Dinner for all, a Winter Festival that includes horse drawn rides, the Lake Associations’ Golf Tournament on Ice, the Lions Brunch, Knights of Columbus Fish Fry, the ever growing St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the Civic Associations’ Bean Bag Tournament, and the list goes on and on.

The thing that will jump out at anyone that visits our fine city is the friendliness of the residents. The one word that best describes the people of the City Silver Lake is “Volunteerism”!!! All of these events that I mentioned above as well as many of the services are only possible because of these fine people and they do it in many different fashions. It ranges from volunteering  hours and hours of their time, to maybe donating funds if needed, to even risking their lives on a daily basis so all of us can go to sleep at night knowing that if a difficult situation arises, we are in the best hands possible. No one could ask for anything more than that!

Again welcome and I appreciate you taking the time to visit Silver Lake and I hope you enjoy all of the wonderful things our residents have to offer. 


Bruce Bebo, Mayor
