Note from the WLA President

posted Apr 15, 2019, 2:11 PM by Washington Lake Association   [ updated Apr 16, 2019, 6:55 AM ]

Association Members,

It looks like Spring has finally arrived in Washington.  While the lake is still mostly ice covered and there is still plenty of snow in the woods, my prediction is that ice out will occur sometime later on this week. Dam boards will go in right after ice out. 

As an FYI New Hampshire Fish and Game is warning hikers and homeowners that Bears are out of hibernation and looking for food.  Last week a large bear was caught on camera roaming Washington Drive so be aware.  

Mark your calendars.  Saturday June 1st is National Trails Day.  Our own little town of Washington (courtesy of the Parks and Recreation and Conservation Committees) is hosting an event with the Monadnock Sunapee Greenway Trail Club. It will be a great opportunity to learn about and explore some of the trails in and around Washington.  Details to follow as we get closer to the event.

And finally, just a reminder that annual dues which cover our association expenses (insurance, dam registration, water testing, beach maintenance, etc) were due April 1st.  Thanks to all of those who have already sent their dues and reminder we need everyone’s support to effectively budget for the upcoming season and maintain our association. If you have not already done so please take a moment and get your check in the mail.  

Regards,
John Butcher 
President
