Kuenzel To Fill The Unexpired Term Of The Late Robert Case
The Lake George Association Board of Directors has appointed Ginger Henry Kuenzel, of Hague, to fill out the term of former Board Member Robert Case, who passed away earlier this year.
“I am thrilled and honored to be asked to serve on the LGA Board, an organization that my family has been involved with and supported for many decades,” Kuenzel said.
“Over the past year, I have been privileged to serve on the LGA’s Water Quality Programs Committee, which has enabled me to experience first-hand the exceptional commitment and expertise of the LGA staff and committee members,” she added.
Carla Burhoe, President of the Board of Directors, said, “Ginger is an advocate for Lake George and is a good friend of Bob and Linda Case, and was the natural choice to fill his term. We welcome her insight and her assistance as we guide the efforts of the most experienced Lake protection organization in the country.”
“We are truly delighted to welcome Ginger to the LGA Board,” said Walt Lender, Executive Director of the LGA. “She is a wealth of knowledge about Lake George with deep roots in the Hague community. She is a tireless advocate for water quality protection and a long-time member of the LGA.”
Kuenzel has served on the Hague Town Board and is the fourth generation of her family to live in Hague.
Kuenzel said, “I have been actively involved in Lake stewardship in Hague for many years, and I now look forward to stepping up my involvement and to working with others in communities around the lake.”
“Fortunately, there is a lot that is already being done by the LGA and other groups to protect this incredible treasure for future generations,” she added. “But there is also so much more to be done, and the LGA is leading the way through its hands-on projects and partnerships, citizen science, education and awareness-building.”
Kuenzel and Bob Case’s wife, Linda, went to Hague Central School together. “We had an idyllic childhood on the shores of Lake George. When I met Bob decades later, I could immediately sense his passion for the Lake. It’s an honor to be asked to continue the work that he started on the board.”
The Lake George Association is the oldest and most experienced lake protection organization in the country, whose members support water quality protection, water quality monitoring, education and lake-friendly living programs that benefit the watershed from Lake George Village to Ticonderoga.
All the money raised by the Lake George Association goes to projects and programs that benefit the Lake and the watershed, protecting Lake George water quality now and in the future.
