SUMMER 2020 - LOOKING BACK
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, we adjusted our planned activities as summarized below.
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING REPORT: We met at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 8th at the Adirondack History Museum pavilion in Elizabethtown (see photo). While attendance was a bit under our normal numbers due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we had a very productive meeting. See: MINUTES FROM THE MEETING (and treasurer's report).
ROAD CLEANUP -- We met on Saturday, June 20, 2020 for our annual road clean-up. More than two dozen Association members showed up (some arrived after the photo was taken).What a turnout! We were done in less than an hour! We kept our distance, and had ample supplies of gloves and hand sanitizer to keep everyone safe. Thanks to all who showed up!

UPDATE ON THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN BASIN PROGRAM GRANT (3-17-2020): Northeast Aquatic Research's final report is now ready here: Northeast Aquatic Research - Lincoln Pond Report (FINAL ~ 1-14-2020).pdf. (See also the appendix: Northeast Aquatic Research Final Report - Map Appendix.pdf).

(Helen Phinney, Aug. 11, 1971)
kingfisher skims the water -
the water reflecting the
hills and sky
Pools of pink and purple.Now
the colors fade.
The hills take on a deep blue.
The water becomes shimmering
glass - shimmering - moving -
Blue clouds, now, and
darker water - a bird calls
in the trees behind me.
all is muted and quiet,
Colors, water - all.
