GWL’s Annual 5k Run / Walk and Kid’s Fun Run
This Saturday, August 1st, GWL will kick off its second annual 5k run / walk and kids fun run for charity. The race begins at Thomas Morahan Waterfront park at 9am, with registration beginning at 7:30a.m.. Advance registration is encouraged but last minute / day of signups are accepted. If you would like to register for this charitable run, please visit http://bit.ly/gwl5k2015 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the 5k, there is a kid’s fun run which will take place in Ben Winstanley Memorial park (CVS Field) at 11a.m. Registration for the 5k is $25 and the Kid’s fun run is $10 per participant.
After the races are complete, we will host a Friend in Need benefit fundraiser at the Elks from 12p.m. – 4p.m. in support of the local family struggling with an ill child who has beat the odds to make it to her current age of almost one year old.
West Nile Infected Mosquitoes
Although West Nile has been found in some mosquitoes in Greenwood Lake, we are thankful the County continues to monitor mosquito populations throughout the county. I would urge residents to take the proper precautions in avoiding exposure to mosquitoes by dressing properly, use repellent and to be aware of your surroundings during peak mosquito activity times such as dawn and dusk. I would also ask that residents help reduce the opportunities for mosquitoes to live and breed by eliminating all stagnant water around their homes and cleaning up debris along their shorelines. Any questions or concerns please call Village Hall at 477-9215. After hours, please email Mayor@villageofgreenwoodlake.org.
