Folks, the fledgling Winnisquam Watershed Network (WWN) met for a second time on September 23rd to review and comment on its website and discuss next steps for the Network. The unanimous consensus among the meeting attendees was that the WWN should become a formal organization, one that would seek to have a membership of people, organizations, and businesses from throughout the Winnisquam Watershed. But that is as far as we got in terms of further defining the organization (formalizing its mission or purpose, structure, its governance, etc.). But we agreed to meet again soon to explore this in greater detail.
For that purpose–our next meeting–I have put together another doodle poll. There are only two choices offered: Friday October 21st and Friday November 4th. The folks at the 9/23 meeting had agreed to the following: to meet again prior to the 9th of November and to meet again on a Friday evening, 5-7 pm. Based on my conversations since then, we have eliminated 10/28 because it conflicts with many peoples’ Halloween commitments. So 10/21 or 11/4 are the choices. The meeting will once again be hosted by Winnisquam Marine (thank you!).
Please fill out the poll at your earliest opportunity; Friday the 14th at the latest. Click here or on the button below to complete the poll.

P.S. The WWN development process has already spawned a meeting of water quality data groups around the lake. Presently, John Edgar, from Meredith, is working to pull together a water quality meeting/working group of those involved with WQ monitoring on Winnisquam. I recommend that anyone who is interested in getting directly involved with the WQ monitoring group, contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org
