The Pembroke Watershed Association is a grassroots, nonprofit organization run by dedicated volunteers. The PWA began in the Fall of 2004 and covers Furnace, Hobomock, Little Sandy Bottom, Oldham and Stetson ponds in the Town of Pembroke, Massachusetts.
To accomplish our mission, we:
President - Bob Kenney
Bob has been a resident of Pembroke since 2017. Along with his wife Sherri, and their trusted pooch Hallie, they enjoy Oldham Pond by cruising around on their pontoon for as long as the weather allows. Bob is usually the first one on the Pond in spring, and the last one off in the fall!
Vice-President Steve Patt
Steve is a long-term resident of Stetson Pond, enjoying time on the water with his wife Debbie and their out-of-control Sheltie. When not chasing his grandson, Steve can generally be found puttering around the yard, walking the bogs that surround his home and playing classic rock far too loudly.
Steve became a Board Member of the PWA last year to join the effort to protect Pembroke’s ponds. His focus will be bridging the gap between town government and pond residents to ensure the mutual goal of enhancing the natural beauty of our watershed for the enjoyment of all.
He welcomes all inquiries, suggestions and comments at [email protected]
Treasurer - Judy Ferrante
Judy’s roots started in South Boston but she ended up in Pembroke in 2009. Judy spent over 40 years in various Boston-based banks in the Investment Operations field as an Operations Manager and Vice President. Judy is an avid fisherwoman who can often be found on Oldham or Stetson looking for those large-mouth bass!
Secretary - Nikki Tantillo
Nikki enjoys the beauty and fun on Oldham Pond.
Director - Membership - Sarah Trant
Sarah has lived on Oldham Pond since 2009. Sarah would love to see everyone come together to see how we can make a difference for our ponds, environment, and wildlife.
Director - Water Quality - Patti McCabe
Patti and her husband Chuck bought a house on Furnace Pond Pembroke in 2003, and are founding members of the PWA. Patti has a life-long love of the outdoors, and wants to be involved in pond restoration with a focus on water quality and pond clean up. Patti also enjoys landscaping and has created a beautiful buffer zone along the water. Patti says "The PWA has been successful in meeting some of our water quality goals and establishing a strong partnership with the town government; I hope to continue to foster this relationship and build a stronger membership base on Furnace pond".
