This course will also satisfy the state requirements for personal watercraft users who are 16 or 17 years of age. All graduates will be issued a Safety Certificate. Taking the class as a family is encouraged and has proven to be highly rewarding. *Students must be at least 12 years of age. 

Fall Clean Up Day!

October 19, 2019

Drawdown Notice

October 15, 2019

Lake Monomonac’s annual draw down will begin on October 15th and will continue until it reaches the new winter draw down level of 3 feet on or around December 1st. The drop in the water level during the winter months allows property owners to do maintenance to their waterfront, including docks, walls, and beaches. It also helps with the weed control. 

Be aware that the lower level increases the danger of hitting submerged rocks, trees or other hidden obstacles. Extreme caution should be taken by boat owners if you are planning to get in some late fall boating or fishing.

LIVE Music on the Water

Sunday, September 8, 3:30-6:30 pm

Enjoy a sunset cruise and listen to live music by Neon Alley! Awesome Rock & Dance covers of the 80's, classic rock, and today's hits! Concert on Lakeview Drive in Winchendon in the narrows.

Boat view only, no standing space. Put on by WSLA.
