Memorial fund created to help fight invasive lake species

The Skaneateles Lake Association recently received a $10,000 donation from the family of a deceased local man who loved the lake and would have wanted to help preserve its purity and character. The money, officially called the David “Lee” Hardy Memorial Fund, will be used for education and stewardship programs to help keep invasive species out of Skaneateles Lake.
