The following is excerpted from the May 11, 2007 Coventry Courier:


Almost 300 residents of West Greenwich, Coventry and surrounding towns took time from last Sunday to help in the efforts to preserve Lake Mishnock.

            The Lake Mishnock Preservation Association’s third annual Pasta Dinner fund raising event was held at the Lake Mishnock Barn from 4-7 pm, the group raising $2,900 for their cause.

            The meal, prepared by Bob Meehan with assistance from his family (previous owners of the Robins Nest restaurant) and the Coventry-West Greenwich Lions Club, provided a delicious family style all you could eat pasta, meatball, salad,  bread and butter meal with deserts too numerous to mention.

            Free country line dancing followed the dinner to help burn off the calories of a great meal.

            The Lake Mishnock Preservation Association is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization formed by local residents in March 2005 to address the deteriorating condition of Lake Mishnock and its surrounding ecosystem.

            “We have come a long way in a short period of time,” said Paul Kaltschnee Director of Membership Chairman. “We now have over 100 members and 30 individual donors for a total of 130 individual supporters of the Association plus three beach association donors.



The article goes on to praise our organization for its efforts over the past two years:  treating invasive vegetation with approved aquatic herbicides, providing educational workshops at the annual meetings (septic system maintenance and healthy landscaping, for example), and delivering handouts door to door containing information on these topics.

            We thank all those who helped make our Pasta Fundraiser a success.
