Three new board members were voted on to the board; Stacey Kane, Terry Fay-Babcock, and Bob Babcock. Officers were approved for new or extended terms; Owen Smith as President, Steve Lajoie as Vice President, Agnes Wiggin as Treasurer, and Martha Drew as Secretary and Historian.

Thank you to David Bradbury, who was recognized as an “unsung hero” for his 18 years of service on the Board. David was instrumental in rebuilding the dam, designing the runoff remediation systems along Rte 113, addressing erosion on Hi-Vu, and much, much more. Thank you David!

As in past years, we noted that quality of Watchic Lake water remains good but is under pressure from polluted runoff from a number of locations We are fortunate to have no invasive plant species in the lake. Paul noted that our upcoming challenges such as addressing a possible invasive species infestation will require more funds than we generate via membership dues and smaller donations. More details will be coming on our 2019 Watchic Lake Stewardship program.
