The 200 Club
The Lake Bomoseen Association is pleased to announce that the KILL the MILfoil 200 Club campaign has surpassed the $60,000 level. Lake homeowners and users have been very generous and this sends the message that many folks care and want to do what is necessary to reduce amount of milfoil in our beautiful lake. Now that the LBPT, a 501(c)(3), a tax deductible charity has had some on-the-water experience to analyze, the first harvester was sold back to the manufacturer and purchase of a completely different harvester will be considered.
The largest contributor to the 200 Club is Green Mountain Feeds, Inc. of Bethel, VT which has donated $40,000. Our thanks go to this company and to all donors to date. Having started the club in September of 2014, we are extremely grateful to all donors.
Different levels of giving have been formed: Bronze is $200 to $999, Silver $1,000 to $9,999, Gold is $10,000 to $19,999 and Platinum is for donations of $20,000 or more. We invite any users of Lake Bomoseen to join in the fundraising effort to purchase, maintain and operate a larger, better harvester. A PayPal option for $200 is available below, should you wish to make a tax deductible donation now. Checks for other amounts may be made payable and mailed to LBPT, PO Box 356, Bomoseen, VT 05732.
Any questions, please contact Davene Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 518-265-1267.
This year, Lake Bomoseen has been home for an usual amount of invasive milfoil. We plan to do what we can to reduce it but that comes with a cost. We invite you to support our efforts to accomplish this goal.
