Friends of Messalonskee Membership Drive



Friday & Saturday JULY 6TH & 7TH!
        Janna & Peter Townsend will be on board the Croce's pleasure craft with Captain Carl & Janet Croce to encourage lake front home owners to become members of Friends of Messalonskee.

From Janna Townsend: 

Day 1 Membership drive-
      "Meeting so many Friends in north Belgrade and Oakland yesterday, learning the contours of the Messalonskee landscape was the highlight of our day. While Carl and Peter manned the Croce's craft decked out with FOM banners, picking us up from neighbor's docks, Janet and I greeted members. Guided by neighborhood advice, we walked over little footbridges, through woods, along streams and many gardens.

       Gracious Friends shared personal history, offered water, even invited us in for Grandpa's birthday! A special thanks to Ned Hammond, lunch on your deck recouped us before heading further north.

       Today look for us along the Sidney shore."

Day 2-
      "Thank you Sidney for another successful day on the lake meeting and greeting Friends. A strong western wind made dock landing tricky, but people like Mary on the south end, lent a hand to tie us up at hers, while Janet and I walked the hills of Sidney.

       The shores of Messalonskee are so varied and so lovely; it's inhabitants, gracious and welcoming. I think we need to party in the middle of the lake for all to meet.

       Special THANK YOU to Chick and Janet Croce, and Peter Townsend for their unending support and assistance."
