Board of Directors


  • We are an organization of people involved in the betterment of Toledo Bend Lake and its surrounding communities.
  • Our membership totals almost 500 family, individual, and business members from many places and with varying backgrounds, education, and occupations. 
  • We are not a political organization, nor do we have any affiliation with any state or federal agency. 
  • We are a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in the state of Louisiana.



  • We fund and support projects and events in, on, and around the Lake and surrounding communities.  A list of activities and projects funded over the last few years can be found HERE
  • TBLA members get together in an informal social meeting the first Thursday of each month at Sabine Council on Aging (SCOA)--Toledo Town, where we enjoy good food and fellowship, and discuss the business of the Association at our meetings.
  • We invite speakers to keep us abreast of environmental and public issues that could affect the quality of life in and around Toledo Bend Lake.

We are sad to inform our membership of the passing of long time Board Member and TBLA Secretary, Bill Galligan. Bill passed away unexpectedly after a brief battle with cancer. He was a tremendous man, father, husband and great friend to many of us. We will miss Bill greatly. Please keep Mitzi and the Galligan family in your prayers as they deal with his loss. The family has asked that you honor Bill by donating to TBLA, the Sabine Humane Society or any charity of your choice in honor of Bill
