Crescent Lake Residents, Neighbors & Friends
You are invited to attend a Crescent Lake celebration picnic at 12 noon on Thursday, August 25, 2016, at the Raymond Public Beach on Rt. 85, next to the boat launch.
We'll be celebrating the completion of Phase II of the Crescent Lake Watershed Improvement Project which began in 2014 and wraps up next month. We'll tour several recently completed lake protection sites including the buffer planting at the town beach, the boat launch stabilization project and drainage improvements on Rt. 85.
Bring your own bag lunch and a folding chair, if you have one. Come and learn more about the project and what you can do to help in the future. For more details, see this news release.
