Tyler Place Event 2019


May 23rd, 2019

Welcome to the annual Friends of Northern Lake Champlain Tyler Place Event & Fundraiser!

The Tyler Place holds a special place with FNLC because it is here that this organization formed as the Friends of Missisquoi Bay. As the concerns of Lake Champlain health grew in our region, so did our membership, where we expanded to cover all of northern Lake Champlain.

Our annual fundraiser helps us to support the functions of our work and community projects to save the legacy of Lake Champlain.
