Interesting Facts about the Silver Lake Institute

We are a 5013C corporation initially Chartered by the New York Legislature in 1857 with a new amended and current charter issued in 2016.

We are governed by a Board of Trustees made up of 12 cottage owners that are elected annually by the cottage owners. Trustees are elected for a three year term.

We are a community of both year round and seasonal owners who enjoy the sunsets, the lake and our neighbors.

The Lakefront greenway is owned by the Institute--all waterfront spaces are leased for an annual fee and must be maintained by the lessee. Any changes or improvements to the leased space must be approved by the Board of Trustees.

As a chartered Institute we are expected to offer programs in art, music, culture, education and spirituality during the months of July and August. We would hope that you would join in the fun and come to the Friday concerts, Saturday evening Coffee Houses, Sunday worship services, children's July 3rd bike parade, lectures desserts on the dock, and all of the other events on our packed summer calendar.

Saturday Mornings during July and August there is a morning cafe at Stoody Hall where you can come to meet with neighbors over a cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast. It is a great place to make new friends.

You pay a Silver Lake Institute tax which: pays for the upkeep of our historic buildings and the big blue dock, maintains our private roads, pays for the groundskeeper who provides the snow plowing in the winter and the mowing in the summer. These funds also assist the programming budget and allow for other improvements as necessary.

Garbage is picked up weekly and must have a sticker on each bag. Stickers may be purchased at the Institute office. Arrangements can be made to dispose of large items by contacting the Groundskeeper.

Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on any of the private grounds owned by the Institute including the waterfront, greenway, roads, buildings and parks. It is permitted on your private property and within your own buildings.

All property sales are subject to approval by the Board of Trustees. If you have other questions that your real estate agent can't answer, feel free to contact the Silver Lake Institute@frontier.com. We look forward to your becoming a part of this special community and look forward to meeting you and yours.

Q - WHAT ARE THE OUTER BORDERS OF THE SLI?
A - (Part 1) - The north-south borders of the Silver Lake Institute are between Camp Road and Chapman Road. The east-west borders of the Silver Lake Institute are from the current and former lands of the Charcoal Corral on the east and Silver Lake on the west, but the eastern line is not straight and not easily defined here. The southern border of the Village of Perry is to the center of Camp Road. From the center of Camp Road to the southern right of way of the same Camp Road is under the jurisdiction of the Town of Castile, NY (originally a part of the Silver Lake Institute before agreement was reached for the Town of Castile to take control and ownership of it).
A - (Part 2) - Historically, Asbury Camp & Retreat Center was SLI property. In 1959 it was sold to the WNY Conference but remained within the SLI borders and tax base. In 2016, the UpperNY Conference negotiated with the SLI and received court approval to be separated and removed from the SLI grounds. There are still individually owned lots on Lakeside Ave. that have joined SLI and are now "little islands" of the Silver Lake Institute and therefore under its jurisdiction.

Q - HOW CAN THE WALKER ROAD SECTION BE BOTH 
THE VILLAGE OF PERRY AND THE TOWN OF CASTILE?
A - The Perry Village's borders extend beyond the Town of Perry and actually into the Town of Castile--an arrangement which gave the Village of Perry the long stretch of lake shoreline along Walker, Lake, and Euclid Avenues in the Walker Tract. Therefore, Camp Road's southern right of way is the dividing line between the Silver Lake Institute and the southern lane of Camp Road belonging to the Town of Castile, NY. The center of Camp Road is where the Village of Perry jurisdiction begins, but both the Silver Lake Institute and the Walker Road section of the Village of Perry BOTH sit within the land area whose borders are within the Town of Castile, NY. One does not need to know borders since the County's Emergency Number is centralized with all Fire and Emergency Departments ensuring that callers will receive more than one response to a Fire or Emergency call.

Q - WHAT IS THE COUNTY EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBER

W. PETE MAIRS

W. PETE MAIRS
Walter D. “Pete” Mairs, 81, died peacefully on July 23, 2021. Born in Avon, N.Y., on Sept. 3, 1939, Pete was a longtime resident of Geneva, N.Y., and these past many years in Buffalo, N.Y., as well as his beloved Silver Lake. Pete is survived by his wife, Linda Bergstrom Mairs, a loving and true companion; children, Mimi C. Mairs, Jonathan B. Mairs; sisters, June Huff, Helen Dole; brother, Thomas Mairs; stepchildren, Daniel Brinkworth, Jennie Ramsey; sister-in-law, Anne Bergstrom, eight beautiful grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. A service and celebration of life is planned for the fall when all can share the joy of Pete’s life together. Arrangements by Stephenson – Dougherty Funeral Home, Avon, N.Y.

Editor's Note: It was a privilege knowing and working with Pete Mairs during his presidency of the Silver Lake Institute. He was a kind and gentle man, but also firm in his leadership. I served as Treasurer and Chaplain of SLI during those years and I could always depend on Pete's presence in the worship service. He was a man of faith and a gem of a human being. May he rest in God's care.

KATHARINE E. PRACZKAJLO ("Kathy P.")

KATHARINE E. PRACZKAJLO ("Kathy P.")
"Kathy P." passed November 8, 2021, of Hamburg and Boston, NY. Beloved daughter of Joseph and Barbara Michalak; loving sister of Daniel Michalak; devoted wife of the late Jeffrey Praczkajlo; cherished mother of Jennifer (Shawn) Jump; loving babcia of Lily Jump; also survived by many beloved family members and friends who became her family. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Editor's Note: "Kathy P." as she was better known to us at Silver Lake was an annual summer visitor for most of the last number of years at the invitation of Silver Laker Julia Hoffner. She stayed at the Hoffner Cottage, and became known as both the fun visitor with the vivacious smile to the neighbors at the intersection of Haven Ave. and the Ames Walkway. Kathy P. and Julie could be seen walking and talking between the cottage and the Hoffner boathouse where they could be close to the water. She was also occasionally seen at the Saturday morning breakfasts at Stoody Hall. Her stay was anywhere between 4 days and a week where she had the opportunity to develop a love for Silver Lake. She was not yet eligible for retirement when late last week she developed "a cold" and had to remain home from her job. She did not update her condition over the weekend so the local police made a wellness visit and found her deceased on Monday. She was one of those many people who found Silver Lake and friendship for brief respites where she also found new strength and energy to return to work. She is being particularly mourned by those in the Haven/Ames neighborhood. She will be memorialized next summer at the annual Celebration of Life Memorial Service at Epworth Hall.
