Lake Raponda Greeter Program

On December 7th, the Wilmington selectboard approved pursuing a grant to establish a greeter program at Lake Raponda's boat launch area.  The objective is to educate boaters and prevent invasive species from contaminating the lake.  Thank you, LRA member Jack Widness for driving this effort.

This is part of the association's Lake Health Initiative.  Read more about the greeter program and the selectboard's action here
