PSU part of ”Save Lake Winnipesaukee (Winni Who?)’ project

July 9th, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.– Many people have seen the “Save Lake Winnipesaukee (Winni Who?)” project on The American Express Members Project television commercial and wondered “is this for real?” (check it out at www.membersproject.com/mptv.htm?id=9 it’s excellent.)

It is for real and the “Save Lake Winnipesaukee (Winni Who?)” project has a real chance of receiving between $1 million and $5 million in funding if it is the top-vote-getter of the American Express Members Project.

Plymouth State University is playing an important role in this project. The University’s Center for the Environment has partnered with the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association, The Lakes Region Planning Commission, and the North Country Resource Conservation & Development Council to create a program designed to ensure that Lake Winnipesaukee remains clean for generations.

The voting to move projects into the next round ended on Sunday, July 15. The top 25 projects will be announced by American Express on July 17. Assuming that “Winni Who?” makes it into the next round of 25 it will be one step closer to receiving between $1 million and $5 million in funding.

American Express card holders can help the “Save Lake Winnipesaukee (Winni Who?)” get there. Amex card holders just log onto www.membersproject.com to cast their vote in support of keeping Lake Winnipesaukee clean.
