Next Friday, August 17, the Lake George Association will host its 127th Annual Meeting.
Hard to imagine isn’t it, that for 127 years, concerned citizens, the people who love and care about Lake George, have been coming together?
If you’re reading this, you too must be concerned about the Lake, so I hope you’ll come out to the meeting (it is free), learn about the efforts the LGA is making to protect the Lake, and get to know some like-minded lake-friendly folks like you …. who are passionate about Lake George, and its future.
We’ll be meeting at the Lake George Club in Bolton (registration is at 9:30 am but we always appreciate a call ahead to let us know you’re coming) and we’re got a chock-full program planned. Everyone is welcome!
Of course, with the recent detection of the invasive species spiny water flea in the Lake, we’ll be spending some time talking about that… what does it mean for Lake George? We’ll present the latest research: up-to-date accurate information. What do we know about its spread so far? What can we do to make sure it doesn’t spread to other parts of the Lake and to other waterbodies? We’ll have samples of the spiny water flea on hand that have been captured in Lake George, so you can get to see them in person.
If you are a boater on Lake George, you’ll have the opportunity to sign our CLEAN BOATERS PLEDGE, and become one of over 250 people so far to do so.
Every attendee will also receive a copy of our latest publication, A Homeowner’s Guide to Lake-friendly Living.
You’ll also get a peek at some of the lake saving projects we’ve completed this past year, and ones in the pipeline for the coming year. LGA Project Manager Randy Rath works hard on these… we work to install dry wells, create sediment basins, and more around the Lake, all to decrease the effects of stormwater runoff, which is the number one source of pollutants to Lake George.
Anyway, after the business part of the meeting, we have a wonderful lunch on the veranda, looking out over the Lake. The lunch is optional… and we do need you to pay for that part… $25… and to make reservations for that part — 668-3558.
Please think about coming out — we’d love to see you.
