* The 2017 ANNUAL MEETING took place on Saturday, July 22. The hghlight of the meeting was the presentation by Tom Lincoln, supervising engineer on the Kingdom Dam reconstruction project (from the DIvision of Operations, DEC). He presented an overview of, and Powerpoint presentation on, the Kingdom Dam project -- explaining how and why it progressed as it did. He also answered questions about the project.
