Keefe Gorman began his financial career with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 1987. In addition to supporting Merrill Lynch as a managing director and wealth management advisor, Keefe Gorman serves as a member of the Skaneateles Lake Association.
The Skaneateles Lake Association (SLA) Inc., was established in 1969 with the goal of maintaining clear, pure water at Skaneateles Lake in Skaneateles, New York, as well as the surrounding watershed. The organization pursues this objective in several ways, chiefly through the promotion of “lake-friendly living.”
Aspects of lake-friendly living can be boiled down to three basic categories. To start, people must understand the processes and impact of water runoff. The water cycle is a complex web that is easily influenced by human activities. People who use harmful chemicals on their lawns, for example, risk the runoff moving to nearby lakes, which both threatens the natural environment and potentially contaminates local sources of drinking water.
Second, individuals living near lakes like Lake Skaneateles should know that even “safe” chemical products can disturb the natural world. If fertilizers are not properly used and maintained, the runoff can result in excess algae growth in surrounding bodies of water, along with additional aquatic plant growth. The result is a seriously degraded aquatic environment, which can quickly spread to surrounding land environments.
Finally, individuals must come to accept the fact that they can enjoy a beautiful lawn without the use of dangerous products. Individuals can take the Lake Friendly Land Care pledge at skaneateleslake.org. The website provides yard signs that detail the oath and promote care for local lakes.
