Lake Raponda Greeter Program

Lake Raponda Association members Bob Bois and Jack Widness have been working with the Town of Wilmington and the Vermont Watershed Management Division. As reported in the Deerfield Valley News, they have obtained funding for the 2019 greeter program, which will help keep invasive species out of the lake.

The program needs volunteer greeters for hours when no paid greeter is on duty. Please come to the greeter training on Friday May 17. Details are here. For information about being a greeter, contact Bob Bois.

The greeter program is part of the association's Lake Health Initiative.  Learn more here.

Lake Watershed Assessment Project

Lake Raponda has received a $3500 grant to develop a benchmark analysis of the condition of the lake's watershed.  Volunteers will be vital, so plan to come to an information meeting May 24 at 2pm at President Will Melton's cottage, 264 Lake Raponda Road.
