For the preservation, protection and maintenance of Lake St. Catherine
WHAT IS THE LAKE ST. CATHERINE ASSOCIATION (LSCA)?
It is everyone who cares about the lake and the surrounding areas. It is you, me, the family next door, the retired couple in the house down the road, it is the Towns of Wells and Poultney, and it is the Lake Champlain water basin.
WHAT DOES THE LSCA DO?
Here are some of the services that we provide:
Everyone associated with the Lake St. Catherine Association is a volunteer. But, there are only 15 trustees and it's a very large lake. Your membership and the dues and contributions we receive allows us to accomplish our work. Maintaining the lake costs approximately $125,000 annually. While we do receive annual grants from Poultney, Wells, and the State, membership dues and contributions make up the majority of our funding.

LSCA is an approved public charity and is exempt from Federal Income Tax under §501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
