The SLBC now has a 10-member Board of Directors comprised of Moorestown residents dedicated to carrying out the non-profit’s mission: Amy & George Gravenstine, Lisa Petriello, Doug Maute, Chet Dawson, Lenny Wagner, Jennifer Baxter, Lilianna Gravenstine and Jimmy Godfrey and Karen Trommelen.
The SLBC is also currently running a fundraising campaign – the Strawbridge Lake Paver Campaign. Paver bricks will give people the opportunity to be a part of Strawbridge Lake forever by honoring, acknowledging or remembering someone, or simply showing their support with an inscription on their paver brick. The pavers will be sold in two sizes and the campaign will run until summer of 2024. Pavers can be purchased right here on the website under the Store tab.
The SLBC is also gearing up for the 6th Annual Moorestown Paddle Board/Kayak Race and Family Festival to be held at the lake on Saturday, June 8, and hopes to increase racer participants, sponsorships and vendors even more than last year. It is our hope that the wonderful momentum our organization has experienced thus far will continue to grow within the residential and business communities. It is the support of these communities that have made many improvements at Strawbridge Lake possible. It is our township gem that people from all over the tri-county region come to enjoy year-round – from fishing to boating to kayaking and paddling, exercising, conversing with nature -- and all things in between! We hope to continue our mission for many years to come so that future generations will always have Strawbridge Lake to enrich their lives and enjoy.
The SLBC once again held the 5th Annual Moorestown Paddle Board/Kayak & Family Festival on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The annual fundraiser raised $25,825 thanks to all the sponsors, race participants, vendors and donors. As in past years, people from all over the area came to enjoy a day of racing, vendors, food, music and vendor shopping. There were 90 racers who registered and competed in the 1-mile and 4-mile race, approximately 50 vendors, and 45 businesses and families donated to the silent auction baskets which raised over $2,000. Funds from this event were used for a lake-edge clean-up and the installation of a third floating dock near the Children’s Pond. The SLBC also hopes to add two kayak launches at two of the floating docs and also do another beautification project somewhere along the lake.
