* The Lincoln Pond Association Picnic was held on Saturday, August 22 at the DEC Campsite. A good time was had by all. See you next year!

* Our thanks go out to Chris Garrow (Superintendent, Essex County Department of Public Works) and his crew for addressing our concerns about road washout issues that had caused some cars to bottom out as they turned onto and out of Francis Myers Drive and Twin Brooks Drive where the two roads intersect with Lincoln Pond Road. We documented the problem with photographs and sent them out to Garrow -- and within two days he sent his crew to repair the road intersections! Kudos to the Essex County Department of Public Works!

* The 2015 annual meeting was held on July 11th at 10:00 a.m. at Camp 6, 39 Lower Pond Way (Sienkiewicz). Watch this site for the minutes and recording of that meeting.


* This summer's road clean-up day took place on June 27 at 9 a.m. Around a dozen members showed up. We will probably schedule another clean-up toward the end of the summer. Watch this site for the date/time.

Our broadband initiative has slowed, unfortunately. We are still waiting for NYS to announce the partnership grants that are to be made available for broadband expansion into rural underserved areas. We'll let you know when we hear more.

See below for more details on the original posting/proposal. On June 9, 2014, the APA conditonally approved the project and issued Permit 2013-238. The approval was for an "85 foot tall telecommunications simulated tree tower with associated antennas, an equipment shelter (11'7" X 30' 1"), and access road improvements." WE WILL BE POSTING UPDATES ON THIS PROJECT AS WE GET THEM.

Verizon Wireless is now construction two cell towers in the Lincoln Pond area. More details and photos will soon follow. Click on the map to the left to see the approximate location of the towers.

Sunset at Lincoln Pond
(Helen Phinney, Aug. 11, 1971)

A 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.

Now all is muted and quiet,
Colors, water - all.
