LGA latest new and announcements

On March 22, 8 of us hit the pavement with our grabbers and safety vests to pick up two areas in Warren County and Brunswick County.  Over 30 bags of road thrash were collected by this hearty band.  Sad there was so much trash to pick up but the sore knees, hips and backs at least made an impact; even if only for a short while.  

To the driver who lost their gas cap on 903 near Eaton Ferry Estates, we found it!

Pictured are (l-r) Tony Moran, LGA board member, Ann Layton, Eaton Ferry Estates, Jay Warfel, LGA member, Eric Wooster (on knee), Brian Goldsworty and Jeff Zimmer, all LGA board members.  Not pictured are LGA board members John Cataldo and Carol Warfel, Lake Clean up chair and behind the camera.  

We were saddened to learn of the passing of former LGA President Doug Hughes.   Doug was a long-time supporter of the LGA mission.   Doug served 3 terms as the President and on the board from 2005 to 2014.  

He was also very active in the Lake Gaston Water Safety Council and served as its president in 2016.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Habitat for Humanity or your local animal rescue.

Director Dave Murphy

We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our friend, colleague, and Halifax County LGA director, Dave Murphy.

This photo was taken in February 2020, at a routine monthly meeting. Dave was our featured presenter and techno-geek and was in his element talking about Raspberry Pi. Dave was also a strong proponent of the middle school STEM (Science, Technical Engineering, and Math) program. Dave also found time to serve his community as a Logistics Lead, Northeastern Chapter, American Red Cross. Just three weeks ago he was scouting emergency shelter locations in our area prior to the start of the severe weather season.  

The family requests donations in Dave's memory be sent to the attention of
