Lakeville and East Freetown Massachusetts

Guest Speakers
Stephen R. Canessa, Massachusetts State Representative - 12th Bristol District
&
Nancy Yeatts, Lakeville Selectman and member of Conservation Commission

Steve Canessa  spoke in regards to the funding for the already approved budget line item for weed control for our pond and the surrounding  ponds. As our new Representative he has shown great interest in Long Pond and the difficulties we face.
Nancy Yeatts updated us with information about potential septic solutions on the west side of the lake and other issues that might effect Long Pond.

“SAVE THE LAKE BASH” Changed ...but FUNDRAISERS continue with Success!
Due to time and cost constraints, the fundraiser bash idea was changed to a variety of activities by generous volunteers.These include Save the Pond T-shirts ($10.00) and Boat bags. ($12.00). Through the efforts of a group of people led by our treasurer Bren, a table was created for selling at the fair at the Lakeville Library this past Sept. Already they have sold about $700 of fund raising products!

The money will go to the Save the Pond Fund and be used towards buying some of the Benthie Barriers. We would be able to purchase some mats and have the Lakes & Ponds Association come for a training on how to use them. This idea was favoreably received by members at the Annual meeting in July.

We still need the support of everyone living within the pond communities to attend this meeting in order for us to get to the solutions concerning our pond.
