The town of Gilford New Hampshire sits on the edge of beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. As well as the village of Gilford, it also encompasses some eighteen islands in the lake that are accessible only by boat. During the summer months the islands are inhabited by people from all over the country. Island living offers a unique experience to its residents as well as unique challenges and issues.
The Gilford Islands Association was founded in 1991 by a group of Gilford island residents who wanted to have a stronger voice on issues affecting their island life and the quality of the environment around them
The Association keeps watch on pending legislation to alert residence of bills that effect them. They meet with the town selectmen to discuss any issues effecting the island residents. They support other organizations that are working to improve the quality of the lake water and other environmental issues like invasive species and loon preservation. The Association provides educational programs on various topics of interest to islanders. They also plan social activities like picnics and luncheons.
