The Harveys Lake Protective Association is once again appealing to borough residents to contribute to the Island maintenance Fund.

The organization asked for contributions in 2004 to landscape and beautify the three traffic islands at the entrance to the lake at a cost of $16,000.

To pay for the project, the goal of the association was to raise $6,000 from private contributions, receive $6,000 from United Water in lieu of restoring the islands after it had dug them up and use $4,000 from the HLPA treasury.

The organization far exceeded the $6,000 goal and has been able to use the remaining amount to maintain the islands for the past eight years. The funds have been used for weeding, mulching, fall cleanup, spring cleanup, light bulb replacement spraying weed killer, planting of four trees, daffodils, tulips and replacing dead plants when necessary.

Earlier this summer, the islands received a major cleanup, mulching and additional plants were added as needed.

That work cost several thousand dollars and has depleted the remaining funds, except for a couple hundred dollars.

Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated. Checks may be made payable to Harveys Lake Protective Association and mailed to PO Box 435, Harveys Lake, PA 18618. Donors are asked to note on the check "Island Maintenance Fund."

Matt DePrimo and Mark Sobeck are island maintenance co-chairmen.
