Lake Bomoseen Community Area

The Lake Bomoseen Association is holding its last social of the summer on Thursday, September 22, from 5 to 7:30 pm at Woodard Marine Showroom on Rt. 4A in Hydeville.  Chili and tableware are provided by the committee and this year we are having a chili cook-off, so our guests get to vote on the best chili by placing a token amount in a cup in front of the chili they like.  Friends, members and lake neighbors are all invited to come at no charge, except for voting.  Bring your own beverage and a salad, corn bread or dessert to share.  It's not too late to pay your LBA membership dues and donations are welcome to the Lake Bomoseen Preservation Trust (LBPT).  Perk cards and decals will be handed out to members who have not yet received theirs.   Information will also be given out on our wine pairing dinner fund raiser being held at the Lake House on October 11.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Any questions, contact Davene Brown at or call 802-468-2281.

The 200 CLUB
Register of 200 Club Members

The Lake Bomoseen Association is pleased to announce that the KILL the MILfoil 200 Club campaign has surpassed the $60,000 level.  Lake homeowners and users have been very generous and this sends the message that many folks care and want to do what is necessary to reduce amount of milfoil in our beautiful lake. After the LBPT has enough on-the-water experience to analyze, purchase of a 2nd harvester will be considered.

The  largest contributor to the 200 Club is Green Mountain Feeds, Inc. of Bethel, VT which has donated $20,000.  Our thanks go to this company and to all donors to date.  Having started the club in September of last year we are extremely grateful to all donors.  

Different levels of giving have been formed:  Bronze is $200 to $999, Silver $1,000 to $9,999, Gold is $10,000 to $19,999 and Platinum is for donations of $20,000 or more.  Contributors will be listed on the LBA website (  We invite any users of Lake Bomoseen to join in the fundraising effort to purchase, maintain and operate another Eco-Harvester.  Checks may be made out and mailed to LBPT, PO Box 356, Bomoseen, VT 05732. A PayPal option is available above, should you wish to make a donation now.

Any questions, please contact Davene Brown at or call at 518-265-1267. 

- This year, Lake Bomoseen has been home for an usual amount of invasive milfoil.  We plan to do what we can to reduce it but that comes with a cost.  We invite you to support our efforts to accomplish this goal.

- The Shoreland Protection Act, H. 526, is now the law. For the official State version, here is a link to The Vermont Shoreland Protection Act Handbook.

Lake Bomoseen Association (LBA)

THE LAKE BOMOSEEN ASSOCIATION, INC. was formed and incorporated in 1956 by a group of neighbors who loved and cared for Lake Bomoseen and wanted to see it thrive.
We continue today to love and care for the Lake and want the Lake to thrive environmentally, financially and socially in the future.
We value and seek to preserve the historic and natural beauty of the Lake. We work to assure the health of the Lake and its fauna and flora.
We are intensively involved in the battle against current and future invasive species and plants. We run a Greeter Program whereby we inspect all boats launched at the public accesses to prevent the introduction of invasive species.
We encourage and promote safe boating; set and light the guidance and warning buoys; provide the Fourth of July fireworks; and sponsor the Neighborhood socials and picnic each year.
We do all this in close concert with the State of Vermont who owns the lake and the Townships of Castleton and Hubbardton, which surround the Lake. We partner together for preservation and lake management. We engage with the Department of Environment Control, the Agency of Natural Resources, Fish and Wildlife, State Representatives and local government and law enforcement on behalf of the Lake community. We enhance communication through quarterly newsletters, an up to date website, continuous Facebook updates, and Community Bulletin Board postings. An LBA sponsored Lake Bomoseen Perk Card provides discounts from local businesses that support our Lake and appreciate our members’ participation.
LBA is a not-for-profit corporation, 501(c)(7) governed by a Board of Directors elected each year at the summer annual meeting by the vote of the General Membership.
LBA is a proud charter member of the Vermont Lakes Coalition.
