LGA latest new and announcements

We are enjoying a brief respite from committee meetings since we didn’t meet in January.  We begin work anew at the end of the month and our first monthly meeting is on February 5, 2020.   More details to follow.   Hope to see you there.   

The Lake Gaston Association will host a Meet the Candidate Forum for upcoming elections in Brunswick County, on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., at the Gasburg Volunteer Fire Department, 1705 Baird Rd, Gasburg, VA 23857.\

All voters in Brunswick County are invited and encouraged to attend. This will be an excellent opportunity for citizens to gain firsthand knowledge of who the candidates are and what they stand for before going to the polls in November. \

Candidates have been invited to attend for the following offices: The invitees to the forum include candidates for Senate of Virginia for Districts 015 & 018; House of Delegates for District 075; School Board; Sheriff; and Board of Supervisors.

Candidates will be allowed two minutes to introduce themselves and their platform. The moderator will ask questions and candidates will be allowed two minutes to respond.  Questions will be submitted by members of the audience and screened for duplicates before the moderator asks candidates for a response. 

For further information contact LGA Director Mozine Lowe at (252) 326-2575 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Today's meeting featured a great presentation by Dave Blodgett of Lake Gaston Outfitters about the variety of free Meet Up opportunities available in the Lake Gaston area.

Snakes around Lake Gaston

I selected the first snake as an attention getter. The Eastern Diamond Back Rattlesnake. Not normally found in this region but is in the Southeastern counties of N.C. This 9.5 foot monster with 2.5 inch fangs was shot by the young man when it entered their hunting blind. Prevalent in the coastal areas of Georgia [St Simmons and Jeckel Islands]
