Celtic Mass for Peace by Sam Guarnaccia
A Song of Peace
Peace between nations,
Peace between neighbours,
Peace between lovers,
In love of the God of life. …
Bless O Christ our hearts,
Bless O Christ our minds,
Bless O Christ our eyes,
Let our eyes bless all they see. …
Grant us your peace …
(based on Ancient Celtic Prayer)

Stoneham Town Meeting : Democracy at its best
The Mission of the Friends of Lake Keewaydin
At the recent Stoneham Town Meeting, Paula Guarnaccia introduces the mission of the Friends of Lake Keewaydin. Below you will find the objectives. Anyone interested in joining please contact Adam Helm at firstname.lastname@example.org
“We’re an open welcoming volunteer organization who wish to monitor and preserve the water quality and natural ecosystems surrounding and including Keewaydin Lake”.
Ways we anticipate achieving this objective:
• We will create non profit 5013c called Friends of Lake Keewaydin (FOLK) for the purpose of official business.
• Via various volunteer groups, FOLK will engage entities such as the Lake Environment Association for documenting a baseline, as well as methods for ongoing monitoring of changes within the lake’s water via water clarity, total phosphorus, chlorophyll-a, anoxic extent, temperature, PH, Total Alkalinity, Color, etc.
• To the extent the resources we engage for educational or water quality monitoring purposes cost money, the group will engage in seeking grants, solicit donations, and engage in fundraising activities.
• The group would like to ensure that all entry points to the lake where the public has access to launch watercraft that there is adequate signage about checking for invasive aquatic plants.
• We will engage our neighbors to recruit volunteers who will be on the lookout for any new plants that may appear in their respective “monitoring zones.”
• We will engage the community at large to become part of the group and engage in fun Keewaydin Lake-themed activities.
• We will host meetings for those interested to find out how they can engage FOLK as a resource to learn about the status of the lake’s health and what resources the group can provide to minimize our collective impact on the lake and preserve its quality for years to come.
