Verani’s Lakes Region Agents Walk Center Harbor’s Shores to Clean up Lake Winnipesaukee
Agents spend day volunteering with Lake Winnipesaukee Spring Clean Up as part of VeraniCARES’ May Day campaign
The snow has melted, Ice Out was called long ago, and now thanks to the efforts of dozens of volunteers on May 12, Lake Winnipesaukee is ready to welcome her slew of summer visitors.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty agents and their families walked the beaches and even took to the water to clean up Center Harbor Boat Launch as part of the first annual Lake Winnipesaukee Spring Clean Up. Verani Realty also sponsored the event through VeraniCARES, which engages Verani Realty agents and employees in philanthropy and social development. VeraniCARES is supporting many community and charitable initiatives happening across New Hampshire and Massachusetts during the month of May as part of its May Day campaign, which is expected to disperse $40,000 to those in need through nonprofits.
The first annual Lake Winnipesaukee Clean Up involved dozens of community members and covered towns throughout the Lakes Region, including Gilford, Laconia, Alton Bay, Meredith, Moultonborough, Tuftonboro, and Wolfeboro. Volunteers celebrated their accomplishments with a barbeque and raffles for prizes at the end of the day.
“The towns around Lake Winnipesaukee are a tight knit community, and we loved the idea of coming together with our neighbors to get our shores ready for summer,” said Kath Blake, Regional Manager of Verani Realty’s Moultonborough office. “We’re passionate about living by the lake, so we were excited to participate in the first of what will hopefully be many spring clean ups to come.”
