From the New York State Federation of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA) below about the annual conference April 29th – May 1st, 2016 at the White Eagle Conference Center in Hamilton, NY:
“Greetings NYSFOLA Members!
“The Water is Great in New York State” 2016 Annual Conference agenda is now on our website at www.nysfola.org. We have a few of the NYSFOLA “standards” for first time attendees as well as some new additions that we think you’ll enjoy!
For fun, we have a “Paint a Lake” event on Friday night, but you must hurry if you want to bring out your inner artist. Parrticipation is limited to the first 20 registrants. We will also be having a Live Wine Auction, featuring the Seneca and Cayuga Wine Trails. This will take place on Saturday night after the banquet. All proceeds benefit NYSFOLA. Don’t forget to bring something for the annual Silent Auction. It’s always a fun event that benefits the organization.
We are looking forward to this annual reunion of NYSFOLA members from across the state. If you’ve never been to a NYSFOLA conference, we hope that you will make this your year.
We are still accepting nominations for the 2016 Lake Steward Awards. Has someone gone “above and beyond the call of duty” for your lake association? Tell us about them. Awards will be presented at the banquet on Saturday evening.
Also, don’t forget to submit your newsletter for the 2016 Newsletter awards. We enjoy reading your news, and you might win a prize! All submissions must be received at the NYSFOLA office by April 15th.
If you have ever wondered plants in Truesdale Lake are invasive, this free PDF booklet will tell you. We have a couple in the book but not many. One of the reasons we have boat stickers is to keep tabs on boats and avoid transporting invasive species into the lake that are not present already.
The New York State Federation of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA) will once again host a regional conference in the Lower Hudson Region. All NYSFOLA members are invited to this scenic spot on the shores of China Lake. July 24, 2015 9:30am … Continue reading →
