Glacier Glen - Weed Control Fund Fundraiser!

Well, the original deadline has passed, but Glen is hanging tough! Due to the ice still remaining, we're extending the deadline to APRIL 1, 2015!

IMPORTANT! For those of you who already guessed AND your guess expired, you can submit another guess for 1/2 off...that's right, submit another guess for $10. THIS ONLY APPLIES IF YOUR GUESS DATE HAS ALREADY PASSED. For example, if you guessed March 20th, well, he's still there - so you could submit another guess for $10.


The Weed Fun(d)raising Committee is at it again!! This friendly fellow is biding his time, counting down and waiting for the ice to melt...stop by and say hello! How long before his chaise sashays, his iceberg submerges, this clown drowns or the bloke goes down under???

Take a chance! Take a guess! When will he go in??

We're on a quest for your guesses, anybody's guesses and your guests' guesses, but only one guess will split the pot with the GEIA Weed Fund!

Keep your eyes peeled on Glacier Glen's face that will stop a clock he wears the moment he take the big plunge!! Just in case the batteries fail before Glen flails, contingency plan is to place all correctly guessed dates in a 50/50 raffle bin to pick the victor!

But no matter what, you've to be in it to win it!!

Send your guesses - day, date AND time (am or pm) - along with $20 per guess to
Mark Racicot, 37 Ash Road, Charlton, MA 01507.

Make Checks payable to the Glen Echo Improvement Association (GEIA).

Glen Echo Lake is a freshwater lake located in Charlton, Massachusetts. It is 116 acres and primarily used by its residents for fishing, swimming and water skiing.

The Glen Echo Improvement Association, made up entirely of volunteers, was founded to promote good fellowship among its members; to promote the civic welfare of Glen Echo Lake Community; to establish and maintain improvements in and about the community; to improve the ecology of Glen Echo Lake; to preserve the rights and privileges of residents; and to do things necessary and incidental to these purposes permissible under Chapter 180 of the General Laws. It is also our goal to educate lake residents, and provide a social forum for members to express concerns and to share information. Monthly meetings, held during the summer, determine our direction by providing an opportunity for everyone living on Glen Echo to discuss any topic regarding the lake. All voices are heard. You need not be a member of the association to address the group. You do need to be a member of the Association to vote. Meeting dates, times, and location are announced on GEIA bulletin boards around the lake and by our newsletter. Please come to a meeting and learn more about us.
