2015 LAA Directories - now available by email

This year when members pay their lake association dues, LAA Directories are available by email as a PDF document. The idea is to make the Directory more available and readable  for our members.

 

The familiar Directory booklets are still available to members who don't use email, either at the lake or by USPS mail. For info contact info@lakearmington.org.

 

Baby Loon

The baby loon at the lake is growing steadily, swimming with its (very) protective parents. Very exciting. A bald eagle, osprey, kingfishers and lots of robins are around, along with barred owls.

 

Updates on our Programs

Lake Hosts perform courtesy boat inspections at the public launch from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekends. Contact Polly Tafrate or Evie Conroy to volunteer.

 

Weed Watchers monitor the lake for invasive aquatic weeds & species throughout the season. Contact Evie Conroy to volunteer, including teens and young people.

 

Water Quality testing happens once a month during the summer season. Contact Mike Poole.

Emergency Response Follow-up

The Piermont Fire Department and Emergency Management visited neighborhoods at Lake Armington, including Sirecho Shores and Cottage Roads, so they're better able to locate the properties at the lake promptly in case of an emergency call. They also brought in their pumper truck to scout how well it could handle the narrow roads and where it could turn around.

 

E911 Program in Piermont

In 2015 the nationwide E911 program begins its roll-out in Piermont to upgrade emergency services and improve reliability and response time. Many addresses and property numbers all over town will be changed to achieve consistency, including those at the lake. Bernie Marvin, Emergency Management Director, is in charge of the program.
