Safety Matters! – Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Maidstone Lake has aquired 2 AED’s that are presently mounted and ready for service – one on the East Side and the other on the West Side. The locations are 4488 Maidstone Lake Road on the East, and 37 Private West 2 on the West. There is signage showing you to where they are located on the property and there will be further signage along the lake road to indicate their location. Thanks to Bill Sanborn’s expertise and tireless work on this project. We will also coordinate training for those that are interested. We hope that these units are only for prevention – and grateful that they are available.

Boat Wash Station Demo: We have arranged another demo of the portable boat wash station that can be purchased for use. These portable units spray high pressure HOT water on the boats and trailers and kills harmful species. They were at Maidstone earlier if you go to see the operation – but will return Saturday July 22nd – Weather Permitting – for another demo. See info about these wash stations at the following link:

Maidstone Lake Directory: Did your email or other contact info change over the winter? If you would like to update,join, or validate your info that we have in the current Maidstone Lake Directory – please email Kathy Frizzell at kathfrizzell@yahoo.com. This directory is voluntary and only shared with those who participate. Once Kathy has compiled the updates – she sends the directory only to those folks who provided information. The Association does not share that information.

Bulky Trash Day – Saturday August 5th at McVetty’s – 1342 Vermont Route 102 just south of Maidstone Plant Farm. 8AM – Noon. Typically the NEKWMD also collects HAZMAT, computers, tires, etc. There may be some fees associated. We will publish more info as we get it!

Greeter Program & Shoreline Protection: Our Greeter program is intended to help us detect any aquatic nuisance from entering the lake. Last year our greeters inspected 278 vessels and another 70 vessels completed the sign-in sheet. We will continue to support this program and hope it is all the prevention we need. This season we have budgeted to cover launch for 49 days (weather permitting). The other parts of this triad of programs is the Shoreline Monitoring program which helps us keep an eye out for anything abnormal along the shore and Lay Monitoring program that captures some quality measures of our water. Please let Ken Watson know if you want to help out with that this year as we always could use more volunteers. Please email Ken if you can help. kenjim@comcast.net

Boating Safety: Lee Stewart & Lin Mixer have retired from providing Maidstone Lake boater safety training. We were so lucky.. for so long…. to have this incredible service on our lake and the hundreds of folks that they trained over the years. Like many of our volunteers – we come to rely on their gracious giving of their time and talents… and expect it forever. Please thank them for their years of dedicated service when you see them next. The boating safety course is available online at: https://www.boat-ed.com

Attention Boaters, Hunters & Fishermen: DeBanville’s General Store & Cafe’ has trout worms, nightcrawlers & dillies for bait. Also DeBanville’s is a Big Game Check-in station for the State of Vermont – so that will shorten the distance Vermont hunters have to go to check in their big game. Boaters and those running other small engines will be able to get NON-Ethanol gas. Finally – you can also get a hunting/fishing license online and have it printed out on the spot. DeBanville’s is on the corners of RT 102 and 105 in Bloomfield, VT. 802-962-5525.Doing work on your property? Here is a handy worksheet to help determine what is needed when developing your property:
