What’s Coming Up –
We have been notified by the Town of Lebanon that the dam gateway was closed on March 18th to let the lake refill. Please share this information with your lake neighbors.
Stay tuned for events that will be coming up in 2020!
New Fundraising Challenge
Spring is here! Soon the warm weather will return and we will want to be enjoying Lake Williams again.
The FLW board of directors has been working hard to develop a plan to eradicate the milfoil and fanwort plants infesting the lake. Hopefully, the lake drawdown will be helpful in contributing to that process. A new treatment plan for this year is in the works. Whatever the plan is, it will require financial resources.
To help our fundraising efforts one of our lake neighbors has challenged us again to donate to this cause. Like last fall, any donation (exclusive of membership dues) will be matched up to $500. This means any donation you make at this time will help meet the match. We hope to reach a minimum goal of $1000 before our fiscal year begins on July 1st.
Please help to free our lake from this infestation. Your tax deductible donation can be mailed to:
A Message from the First Selectman regarding Coronavirus
The First Selectman is directing all residents returning from New York to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days. Due to the size of the outbreak there, we want them to treat themselves as if they are ill even if they are not currently experiencing symptoms. Given that many of these residents own lakeside properties, we are asking for your assistance in spreading this message to members of your associations.
Lake Drawdown Update – March 19, 2020
The Town of Lebanon has informed us that they will begin refilling the lake sometime in March after any ice has melted and the chance of refreezing is low.
