WOLFEBORO — One of two “Meet and Greet” receptions hosted by the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association (LWWA) will be held on June 6 at the Wolfeboro Corinthian Yacht Club.
The reception will be held at the club, located at 12 Nancy’s Way, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The first of the two “Meet and Greet” receptions will be held on May 30 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center on White Oaks Road in Laconia.
The receptions present an opportunity for individuals, businesses, and other organizations to become better acquainted with the work of local lake associations.
According to Patricia Tarpey, Executive Director of LWWA, the staff and Board of Directors will showcase the new programs and projects that are planned for this year and in the future.
“The LWWA has embarked on an ambitious five-year strategic plan that focuses on four major objectives: to strengthen its technical capacity to perform and assist water quality monitoring, enhance its organizational capacity to provide information on critical water quality issues, to help inform and engage residents and visitors through campaigns, social media, presentations to communities and organizations, conduct activities like the ‘Floating Classroom,’ and to provide high quality programs, services, and activities to our members and the public through expansion and enhancement of our partnerships,” according to Tarpey.
“These ambitious objectives cannot be accomplished without the awareness and help of our neighbors, friends, members, and partners,” Tarpey added.
If you are interested in attending one of the ‘Meet and Greet’ receptions, RSVP to the LWWA at 581-6632 or e-mail the association at email@example.com.
