Local Organizations Step Aboard to Protect NH’s Lakes

Founding Sponsors Launch LakeFest 2014 Toward Guinness Gold

Got gratitude?  NH LAKES does!  Thanks to the first dozen Founding Sponsors of LakeFest 2014, the New Hampshire Lakes Association’s (NH LAKES) Festival and Guinness Rematch are off to a great start.  Energy, excitement, and enthusiasm are growing, as Founding Sponsors, volunteers, and NH LAKES staff work together to build a remarkable event.  

LakeFest 2014 returns to Lake Winnipesaukee on August 3, 2014.  These Founding Sponsors have already come aboard to help, and invite area organizations to join them:

AB Aquatics

Bridge & Byron Printers

City of Laconia

Devine Millimet

Imagine Gallery

Irwin Marine

New England Milfoil

NH Marine Patrol

Outdoor ESCAPES New Hampshire

Speedy Printing & Copying

The Common Man

The Lobster Pound

LakeFest 2014 will feature a Guinness Rematch, as paddlers try once again to capture a Guinness World Record for the largest free floating raft of canoes and kayaks.  On-land, the free family-friendly Festival will expand, with more food vendors, additional programming, exciting new activities, popular live bands, and more.

LakeFest 2014 planners are hard at work crafting a larger event with expanded partners, additional corporate and recreational paddling groups, new family programming, increased educational displays, bigger vendor assortment, and so much more.

Sponsor opportunities start at just $250, and all organizations who commit their support in 2013 will receive special recognition as Founding Sponsors.  Learn more about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities by emailing or calling 603.226.0299.

Funds raised through LakeFest 2014 directly support NH LAKES’ work to protect local lakes and their watersheds through education and advocacy.  Since 2002, hundreds of paid and volunteer NH LAKES Lake Hosts have conducted more than 576,000 courtesy boat inspections and have made more than 1,409 “saves” of aquatic nuisance plant fragments that were about to enter or had just left a waterbody.
