Summer isn't over yet!
September 19, 2015
A MONTHLY NEWSLETTER OF NEW HAMPSHIRE LAKES ASSOCIATION
Dear Lake Friend,
While fall is coming, it still looks and feels like summer in New Hampshire. On this last official weekend of summer, we hope that you have the chance to visit your favorite lake once more before the cold sets in. If you aren't able to make it to the lake, we invite you take just a minute to reflect on the time you spent at the lake this summer. And, wherever you are, we hope that you will check out this issue of Shorelines.

LAKE HOST 'SAVES' UPDATE
As of mid-August, our 775+ Lake Hosts working at 100 of the busiest boat ramps throughout the state have removed 45 fragments of aquatic invasive species hitchhiking on boats and trailers!

Lake Hosts have also taught thousands of boaters how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Some ramps will be staffed by Lake Hosts through Columbus Day weekend.

To see when and where these 'saves' were made, CLICK HERE.
