About Us

What We Do

There is no better way to stay close to the beautiful Willoughby Lake region than by joining the Westmore Association.

We are a non-profit charity organization and all donations are tax deductible.

Our mission is to promote, develop and conserve the natural resources and community life of the Westmore area.

Some of our core activities include:

  • Providing scholarships for area students pursuing post-high school education
  • Maintaining and improving hiking trails and the shoreline
  • Monitoring the lake’s water quality through millfoil control and boat inspection
  • Sponsoring family-friendly events such as lectures, concerts and dances

We will miss the social life of past summers due to the 2020 pandemic precautions. Please join us when we can again gather safely and enjoy each other’s company.

 

What You can do

First, please join the Westmore Association at whichever level is affordable.

We welcome new members and encourage everyone to get involved in any number of volunteer activities like trail maintenance, social events, publicity and scholarships.

Additional donations for a specific purpose like adding a boardwalk to the Town Forest trail system or millfoil protection are always appreciated. 

Association meetings are open to members and our committees welcome member participation.  Please stay in touch. 

The Lake Wise Award

If you own waterfront property, consider applying for a Lake Wise Award under the new shoreland management program sponsored by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

Directors are elected for a term of three years, one-third of the full Board (except officers) being elected each year at the annual meeting. A member may serve two consecutive terms.
