October 14th

Renaissance Brome Lake
A meeting has been organized for all concerned citizens and friends of Brome Lake who are troubled with the blue-green algae problems the lake has experienced this year and the accelerating rate of deterioration the Brome Lake is experiencing. Initiatives to reduce emissions into the lake are often ignored as residents continue to fertilize grass and local farmers like the Duck Farm continue dumping large quantities of manure onto fields which eventually gets washed into the lake. Residents have expressed concerns over the MillPond Dam and this summer's closing of Douglass Beach have made people even angrier. The meeting is being called by a group called Renaissance Lac Brome to help formulate a plan of action to reduce phosphorus and combat indifference and inaction by local officials. The meeting is from 10 a.m. till noon at the Odd Fellows Hall at 476 Knowlton Road.

October 14th - 15th
