Come one come all for a great time at the Alexandria Golf Club the first Monday of June. We have local businesses on the course with enticing games, activities and food. You can participate by sponsoring a tee or green and network with 144 golfers playing the course, or you can network with all of the tee and green sponsors by gathering a team of 4 to play 18 holes of golf. Enjoy a picnic supper after golfing. The event is the main fundraiser for the Chamber supporting its mission to promote the Alexandria Lakes Area as the ultimate destination to live, work, play and prosper!
We say it all the time “our lake…”, “my stretch of shoreline…” or “our aquifer.” There’s an obvious reason we talk about water in this way. We will always understand water quality and care for it based on what we see and do every day. Not surprisingly, protecting and restoring water can only happen when people see it as their civic responsibility, kind of like voting for elections. In this virtual presentation, John Linc Stine, Executive Director of Freshwater, will describe how water is protected or polluted in and around Alexandria, Douglas County and the neighboring area and encourage participants to take local action for water stewardship.
This webinar is free to the public. Register at www.legacyofthelakes.org/water-talks/.
Co-sponsored by the Douglas County Lakes Association.
