Congratulations to this year’s Gertrude Spaulding award winner, Laurel Perkins, who has been a member of FOLQ’s Col. Connelly Park Committee. In particular, Laurel’s incredibly hard work on the program to install memorial bricks around the Connelly Park Flagpole has made a lasting impression on our Lake and our organization. Thank you, Laurel!
Read the latest newsletter from Friends of Lake Quannapowitt to learn about the work we’re doing and how you can get involved.
FOLQ purchased and donated a new boat to the Town of Wakefield to use for goose control efforts. The Friends purchased the first boat for this undertaking more than 20 years ago. FOLQ continues to work collaboratively with the Town to promote public awareness and provide long-term protection and enhancement of Lake Quannapowitt and its surrounding public lands.
March 1 is the final date for ordering an engraved brick to be installed in the 2024 installation performed by Friends of Lake Quannapowitt. Initiated in 2006, Bricks by the Lake is a program that raises funds for improvements in lakeside parklands while also enabling personal memorials on engraved bricks located.
FOLQ Membership is what drives the organization. Your membership provides financial support for our organization, keeps you informed of our activities, invites you to our annual events, and helps secures its future. And individual donations from private individuals, civic groups, corporations, and foundations are vitally important to helping to renew, care, and advocate for the Lake and its surrounding valuable public green spaces.
