2018 Annual Meeting Presentations

In July of 2018 Peter L. Bloch and Roger Bloch shared their expertise with the membership and presented a fascinating glimpse of the geology of Little Lake Sunapee and a mesmerizing view of the lake and surrounds through the four seasons from above:

Beginning in 2015, the members of the Little Sunapee Protective Association embarked on a project of researching and documenting the history of the lake and its inhabitants. A number of families have lived in the area for generations and shared their memories and photographs with the larger membership. In 2016 and 2017, the association hosted the following presentations of the history of the lake and its changing landscape over the past 100 years.
