About the Client:

Founded in 1985, the Friends of Lake Glenville is a non-profit association of Lake property owners, other interested individuals and corporate members organized to benefit Lake Glenville. Our Mission is the Preserve and protect the natural beauty and integrity of Lake Glenville. Our efforts are around water quality, lake ecology and environment, shoreline management, lake flow levels, and boating safety.

The Association functions primarily as an advocate of good lake management by providing a means for addressing and solving lake issues. It is in this capacity that FLG has built and maintains a good relationship with Duke Energy as owner of the lake and serves as a conduit for information between our members, Duke Energy, Jackson County and other local officials.

We also play a role as stewards of the lake by sponsoring our own monthly water quality testing program and assisting Duke Power with other initiatives and projects that have a direct effect on residents, home owners and visitors alike.

We hold various social and informational events throughout the year, where members learn more about the lake, share community news, and enjoy the pleasure of each others company. We are also the producers of the annual Fireworks on the Point display that takes place on the 4th of July, as well as annual sponsors of one installment of the Groovin' on the Green summer concert series that takes at the Village Green on Friday evenings during the summer season.

Client Testimonials

  • Sounds Essential is a trusted partner on several demanding and highly complex development projects. Their technical skills, creativity, and most importantly, their grasp of our business needs has helped our company deliver sophisticated solutions to our (very happy) clients. Even when projects reach the "intense" stage, we really enjoy working with Sounds Essential.

    Pam Henry, Managing Partner
    Digital Spark LLC
  • Sounds Essential worked with our staff last year to create the first digital plant database in our organization’s history. This milestone not only benefits the day to day work flow of our organization, it creates the opportunity for us to share our data with others worldwide. Due to our niche high elevation ecosystems, we can share valuable insight about native plant communities and how they are adapting to climate change. Without the help from SE and funding from Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust this project would still be in conception. Working with SE made the development and implementation a pleasure for us gardeners.

  • Sounds Essential was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. With their guidance, we were able to update our website quickly and present a more polished and modern interface for our church. The documentation provided was clear and easy to follow, and they have been quick to respond to any questions.
