SUNDAY, AUGUST 24th

We’ll greet the swimmers at the SANDY BEACH and then proceed to the Co-op Café for a celebration, pizza, refreshments, live music, and a lake themed puppet show

BEACH PARTY at 6:30pm ~ CAFÉ at 8pm

We’ll start off with performances by local musicians and then open the stage so bring your instruments or poetry to share! And let’s gather to celebrate the feat of these amazing community members who are inspiring us to become better stewards of our lakes.

AND IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SPONSOR THE SWIMMERS!
Just pick up a form at any local store or go to:

Every little bit makes a difference.

50% of the funds raised will go toward lab analysis costs, and 50% will go toward solutions: bio-remediation supplies & support for watershed users to decrease the flow of nutrients into the lakes. We hope to decrease these inputs by the spring of 2015 to prevent further algae blooms from happening.

Help us reach our goal of raising $12,000!

In our first week of fundraising, your donations have already totaled $7,000
This is an amazing accomplishment and with another $5,000 we can cover the costs for an entire year of testing ($6,000) and put $6,000 in a fund for restoration projects. Please spread the word and share the website link with everyone you know who loves these lakes!

Thank you for your generous support and we look forward to seeing you at the Swimmer's Celebration on August 24th!
