Spring Greetings – 2024

Hi Everyone,

Boy is Mother Nature playing games with us. Two snowstorms in two weeks and not just a little snow. We had 16 inches the week before Easter and yesterday about 8 inches fell. Fortunately, the first 16 inches had melted before receiving this lastest dumping. With fairly mild temps forecast for next week I am hopeful this snow won’t last long either. It has been great seeing the sun glisten on the water a few days. Ready to move forward to Spring and Summer!

As mentioned in a previous email, the WLA is looking to standardize our logo. The WLA board of directors will be meeting on Saturday, June 1st. Please submit any ideas you may have for a logo to me prior to that date. At our meeting, the board of directors will decide on 3 logos that will then be put to the general membership for a final vote at the WLA annual meeting on Aug 3rd. I know there are many talented people out there that may have some great ideas.

Some of you may have noticed that the WLA webcam has been down for a few days. Mark Field has done some troubleshooting to no avail. We are looking to purchase and set up a new camera. Please be patient until it is back up and running.

The WLA Spring newsletter will be out soon and if anyone is wanting to write an article about WLA memories that would be great. You may send it to me before April 15th.

The 50th Anniversary committee has been working hard putting together lots of fun things to celebrate this WLA milestone. Tickets are on sale for the BBQ dinner to be held on August 17th. There is a 200 person limit so don’t be left out from participating. Also Deb Parker is putting together a photo/recipe book. She has extended the deadline for submissions to her until May 15th. The committee has three different styles of water bottles for sale. Deb Parker has the inventory and arrangements can be made through her to pick them up. The committee will also be selling LED lights so that we can light up our lake in a lake friendly manner on the 4th of July. This is bringing back the “flare lighting” done in past years, but in a way that won’t harm our lake. Members of the committee will be selling them at both beaches Memorial Day weekend as well as going door to door as it gets closer to July 4th. Prizes will be given for first, second and third places in the boat parade this year. Register online to get a number as people will be able to vote online for their favorite. Also on Saturday, July 6th, the day of the parade, a sno-cone truck will be traveling around the lake for residents and guests to buy a treat while watching the parade. Thank you to the committee made up of Deb Parker, chairperson, Ruth Marvin, Brian Campbell, Nancy Moulton, Allison Goodwin, and Denise Steadman for all their efforts towards this celebration. For more information, go to the WLA website and click on the WLA 50th button or go to http://www.wla50th.com. You may also email myself or Deb Parker at deb@hindsdesigns.net with any questions.

You may also have noticed we have a new platform on our website to pay for dues or donations to the WLA. This platform is called Zeffy. It seems to be working ok and the nice part is there are no fees charged for their service.

NH Lakes will be holding their annual Lakes Congress on Thursday, June 6th. If you would like to learn more about legislative actions, lake friendly living, watershed management or networking with other lake property owners, this is a great conference to attend.

Hoping the snow is done for good and looking forward to seeing you soon.
Take care,
