We meet the second Tuesday of each month. Currently we meet at Crabby Joe's Bar and Grill, between South and Middle Ponds (141 Congamond Road, Southwick), starting at 7:30. We use these "open" meetings as a forum for people to come and express their concerns about the lake, ask questions about what is being done to improve the lake, and receive information about what they, and others, can do to help. We invite anyone and everyone interested in the well being of Lake Congamond to stop by and see whats going on. Hope to see you there. Come get involved.
