MEMBERSHIP IS DUE
Membership was due August 1st. If you have not sent in your dues yet please send it to BLIA, P.O. Box 133, East Derry, NH or bring it to the Annual Meeting. I want to thank everyone who has sent in their dues. We have had some very generous donations this year.
We had two more findings of Milfoil floating in the lake in the last couple of weeks. This is six we have found this summer. As of today we have found NO Milfoil rooted and growing in the lake but it certainly is suspicious to keep finding it. DES has surveyed the lake once already this year and found nothing rooted. Also this week our Weed Watcher leader, Dan Scharlach and his son did a thorough survey of the lake and found nothing rooted. We will continue our vigilance through the Lake Host Program and the Weed Watcher program. Thanks to Laurel Powers, Ginny Legare, Paula Frank and Anne-Marie Dudley for finding the Milfoil and keeping it from rooting.
