Lake Gaston Guide

The May 3rd Lake Gaston Association's monthly meeting at 9:30 a.m. will feature Tony [The Snake Charmer] Moran, LGA Director who will present a PowerPoint overview of the various venomous and non-venomous snakes which are prevalent to the lake area.

This will include proper identification, as well as suggested action when coming in contact with these sometimes unfriendly neighbors. Rest assured there will be no live snakes.

In addition, a representative of VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital will advise what action should be taken in the event of a snake bite and what treatment can be expected should the victim require transportation to an emergency room. Q&A will follow.

The meeting will be held at the Lake Gaston Baptist Church located on Hwy. 903, 1 mile north of Eaton Ferry Bridge, across from the Subway Restaurant.

The meeting will also provide an opportunity to get caught up on the various activities that the LGA Committees – Public Safety, Lake Environment, Government Relations, Education, Marketing and Membership and Lake Clean-Up – are working on.

Got a lake-related issue or concern that the LGA should be working on? There will be time allotted on the agenda to present those concerns to the LGA Board.

The meeting is open to the public, members and non-members a like, so gather up your neighbors and come join the LGA.
