THE 2016 SEASON (the 2017 schedule will be posted in May)

* ROAD CLEAN-UP DAY: This summer's road clean-up day took place on Saturday, June 25th, at 9 a.m. Though we were a smaller group than last year, we were able to complete MOST of the 3+ miles for which we are responsible. We might have a repeat at the end of the summer. Stay tuned for an announcement.

* If you haven't already sent in your annual membership dues ($15 per camp) please do so now.

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.

* VERIZON FRANKENPINE CELL TOWER PROJECT: The Verizon Wireless towers are now in place and operating smoothly. Several camps are now receiving very strong signals (5 bars). ATT reception is acceptable on the east side of the Pond and strong up the hill along the upper part of Simonds Hill Road and also on the upper part of Lincoln Pond Road as you head toward Mineville (covered by the Belfry cell tower at the end of the Belfry trail).

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.
