Hello Lake Associations.

The Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds is happy to offer this new resource for lake associations to help get the word out to their lake community about how homeowners and visitors can better enjoy and protect their lake and watershed:

FOVLAP’s Welcome Guide to Vermont Lakes & Ponds Uses. aka “The Door Knocker Project

A door knocker is a vertically oriented, half-page hard cardboard with a cutout to allow you to hang it on a doorknob or cabinet handle at camps and homes around your lake or pond. Its purpose is to provide key information to property owners and visitors to enhance their enjoyment of lake experiences — while protecting your lakes’ water quality, tranquility, and intrinsic beauty.

FOVLAP has created a template for the front side of the door knocker, using the specifications from Vistaprint for their door hanger product which contains general information about Vermont lakes and ponds. The back side can be designed by you to provide lake specific information from your association to your lake community. These handy resources can then be printed and distributed to property owners around your lake or pond.

As you’ll see on the FOVLAP side, there is a QR code. When this code is scanned, the user will be taken to a webpage on our site that has clickable links to the topics and items listed on the door knocker. You’ll be able to do the same for your side, and we’ve included a few suggestions.
