The 2nd Annual Lake Winnipesaukee Community Clean Up, spearheaded by Rob Janes, Aimee Janes and Joyce Murphy, kicked off on June 1. The goal of this group is to gather a community of lake lovers willing to come together annually to help clear the debris in, on, and around the lake. Motivated by the overwhelming success of last year’s first event, teams and local businesses gathered to clean areas around Alton Bay, Wolfeboro, Meredith, Laconia, Center Harbor, Moultonborough and Tuftonboro. Volunteers met at each primary location on the lake to “team up to clean up” and gathered over 8 yards of debris.

This community event has really taken off, successfully raising awareness of how much debris and trash is left on the ground and found in the lake. We encourage people to pick it up 24/7, 365 days. We want future generations to enjoy the lake as much as we do and for many years to come. If we keep trashing it the way we are, that will not happen. Think back to the Iron Eyes Cody commercial from the ’70s. We all have to do our part to “Keep America Beautiful.”

Thank you to all our volunteers and our sponsors: Lake Winnipesaukee Association, No Limits Metalworks, Gilford Country Store, Lake Life Brand, Sports and Marine Parafunalia, Roche Realty Group, New Hampshire Boat Museum, and Shep Browns Boat Basin.
