There are two organizations for Lake Williams.
Lake Williams Beach Association
The Lake Williams Beach Association, or LWBA, is an organization established by the Connecticut State Legislature in 1953. The Town of Lebanon has a map of the area encompassed by the LWBA (on the website). The Annual Meeting is held on the first Sunday in June at 1:00. At this meeting the board members are elected, the budget and tax rates are established.
The LWBA is charged with the maintenance of three beaches, a boat launch, and a picnic pavilion. The Annual Budget is spent as follows: 1/3 on property taxes, 1/3 on insurances, and 1/3 on beach maintenance and running the Association. Past activities include an annual picnic, Mile-long Tag Sale, spring clean-up and fall clean-up work days.
Friends of Lake Williams
In addition there is another organization: The Friends of Lake Williams which is active in the treatment of fanwort and milfoil, two invasive plant species. It costs about $13,000 a year to treat the invasive weeds. (The Town of Lebanon pays 50% of the cost.) Their annual meeting is on the second Saturday in June. Friends activities include ongoing monitoring of water quality, boat parade, canoe/kayak rally, and lake clean-up day. The Friends website is www.friendsoflakewilliams.org which has the list of the current board of directors, bylaws, minutes, newsletters, membership application form, and a link to the Connecticut Federation of Lakes.
Both organizations need volunteers. Please help protect the lake, meet your neighbors, and participate in making Lake Williams an even better place.
