After a great deal of debate, the Pure Waters’ Board of Directors has made the tough decision to cancel our Annual Dinner for this year. As you might expect, the Covid Delta variant was at the center of our decision. At first, we thought having proof of vaccination might be sufficient to guard against the Delta variant. However, the Board concluded the risk was too great to proceed, and determined we should not risk the health of our loyal members.
The Annual Dinner is always one of our most popular events and also one of our biggest fundraisers. However, like last year, we will work diligently to make up for this significant revenue loss. We will find creative ways to fund and support our well- respected water quality monitoring programs, including HAB Bloom, Stream, Lake Assessment (CSLAP), and Invasive Species Management (PRISM) as well as our educational Lake Friendly Living program. You can donate any time at www.senecalake.org/donate or contact our Association Director, Kaitlin Fello (email@example.com ), if you would like to help us in our funding efforts.
In addition, we would like everyone to know our Virtual Annual Meeting will take place on October 13, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Please save the date and join us while we discuss our year in review and our plans for the future. The Virtual Annual Meeting will be preceded again this year by our Virtual Silent Auction. Be ready to start the bidding on your favorite item on Friday, October 8, through Friday, October 15. We hope you will join us for some fundraising fun and bid on your favorite special packages that week! If you are interested in donating to this year’s silent auction, please email Kaitlin at firstname.lastname@example.org. No matter how big the challenges, you can always count on the Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association to do everything possible to preserve and protect Seneca Lake. Our success starts with our members.
