Boat Launch Dates - Spring 2021
Following are dates for supervised launches from the private launch site in Fellows Cove. PPA paid members are eligible. The launch fee is $30. Check to “PPA”. PPA $30 annual membership fee is also due if you have not yet paid it. Checks can be made out to “PPA” or you can pay in cash (correct change). Due to the Covid virus, Maine is currently asking everyone to wear a mask and stay 6+ feet apart. I would ask that you put your payment in an unsealed envelope (with your name on it) and place it in a box provided.
Sat. May 8th (9 am - noon)
Sat. May 29th (8:30 am-12:30)
Sat. June 19th (8:30 - 12:30)
New rules required by Parker Lake Shore Recreation Assoc. who “owns” the launch:
There are limited time slots. To schedule, or if you have questions, please e-mail or call Bob Weimont (email@example.com, 293 4344) ASAP or at least 3 weeks in advance. Provide a two hour window. We will do our best to accommodate everyone. Once your launch time is established it is important to be on time. Not late OR early.
If you are a member of Parker Lake Shores, you are not required to use these launch dates or pay a fee.

Calling all shorefront owners: Parker Pond needs your help!
As the threats to our pond become more challenging with invasive plants, warming water and stormwater runoff, you may ask “What can I do to help?”
LakeSmart is an educational and reward program that helps lakefront owners manage their properties in ways that protect water quality and property values. Trained volunteers will evaluate your property and provide individualized suggestions for keeping stormwater runoff out of the lake. These improvements can go a long way towards diminishing algae growth and keeping the water clean and swimmable.
We can do an evaluation in about an hour, outside, with safety precautions. The evaluation is free and non-regulatory.
Improvements often can be done yourself, or if needed with the help of the Youth Conservation Corps of the 30 Mile River Watershed Association.
Please help our lake and take advantage of this tried and true program for the sake of our lake by signing up for a free visit today!
