50th Anniversary Kickoff Celebration

The “Island” as it appeared in the 1930s before Route 16 was paved and the road ran right alongside Chocorua Lake.  Route 16 was relocated away from the lake in the early 1950s, but the old highway continued to run alongside the lake.  In the 1970s, the CLC ripped up this paved portion of the Old Route 16 and converted it into a picnic and swimming for the public to enjoy.

6/28 Update:  The party is now SOLD OUT!  Registration is no longer possible.  Sorry about that.

Saturday, June 30th – 5:30 pm to dusk at the “Island” (Old Route 16, Chocorua Lake)

Come raise a glass and help us celebrate the Chocorua Lake Conservancy and our 50 years of helping to keep the Chocorua Lake Basin pristine and accessible for everyone.

Who’s Invited?  All residents of Chocorua, Tamworth and nearby towns.  All CLC members, family members, recent donors and friends.  Attendees are welcome to bring friends who will support the CLC’s mission to protect the natural beauty of the Chocorua Lake Basin and provide public access to Chocorua Lake.

All attendees are required to register in advance.  On site registration is not possible.
