Lake Bomoseen Community Area
The last summer LBA social is this Thursday, August 28 from 5 to 7 on Neshobe Island. This social is starting an hour later than past socials to encourage the working folks to attend. You need to come by your boat....be sure to bring ropes, boat bumpers and an anchor as we will be rafting boats to dock them. Invite a neighbor and come to meet other Lake Bomoseen lovers. Bring whatever you want to drink along with an appetizer to share. Hope to see many there to celebrate the end of the summer season.
The new Shoreland Protection Act, H. 526, is now in effect. Read the VPR News report on the law and perhaps join in the discussion. 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.
