We have some sad news to report this morning. Former Town Manager of Poultney Jonas Rosenthal has passed away.
LSCA Trustee Mary Jo Teetor remembered Jonas:
"We are saddened to hear of the sudden passing of our friend and colleague Jonas Rosenthal.
Jonas, who had a long career of public service in the area, was a supporter of the LSCA. He knew the value of the lake as an economic engine, as well as a precious natural resource to the area. He was always supportive of the lake activities and helped the association secure funding, participated in meetings, as well as helping with grant writing to support the work we do managing the lake.
A workaholic and dedicated public servant, Jonas was happiest seeing projects through from conception to completion and beyond. It is hard to conceive of where we would be without the help and friendship he provided. Jonas is already sorely missed in the widespread communities he serviced.
With sincere condolences to his wife Jima and daughter Katie, we wish you the best in this difficult time."
A celebration of his life will be held at the American Legion in Poultney on Saturday, October 29 from 1 - 4 PM.
