                              Summer 2023 Schedule            

Road Clean-Up (7/8/2023): This year's road trash collection was re-scheduled twice due to rain. A very small group showed up on the 8th leading to a discussion about a possible reorganization of our efforts. That discussion continued at our annual membership meeting and we decided to adopt a new procedure for road trash pick up in the future. We will schedule a single WHOLE Association road clean up day early next season, followed by group sign-ups for follow-up road trash collection throughout the summer. We prepared a map identifying six road zones groups can sign up for: Lincoln Pond Road - Zoned Trash Clean Up Map). A few people have already signed up to cover zones THIS season.
Finally -- related to this topic -- during our July 8th road work, we discovered a major illegal dumping site along Lincoln Pond Road and close to Brandy Brook, on the stretch of sharp curves descending down to the Pond from the east (on the north side of the road along Section 6 of the aformentioned map). A second dump site, near the first one, was later also discovered. The DEC and the local sheriff's office were notified and are now investigating the sites and trying to locate those responsible for them.

Annual Membership Meeting (7/15/2023): Our annual membership meeting took place -- as in past years -- at the Sienkiewicz camp, 39 Lower Pond Way, on Saturday, July 15th. We will post the minutes from that meeting once it becomes available. You can view minutes from last year's meeting here: MINUTES FROM THE SUMMER 2022 MEETING 

Annual Summer Picnic (8/12/2023):  Our annual summer picnic will took place on Saturday, August 12th, starting at 11:30 AM. We met at the DEC campsite picnic area (near the beach). Among the three dozen+ attendees were some newcomers. It seems that Lincoln Pond is becoming more visible and attractive to those seeking a rural home/camp in a beautiful setting -- but one also readily accessible and connected to the rest of the world.

                                                 NOTICES AND ACTIVITIES 

* As many of you know, the Lincoln Pond Association has long participated in the Lake Management Tracker Program administered by APPIP (Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program). For more information about this, go to LAKE MANAGEMENT TRACKING PROGRAM.
As participants in the program, we track the spread of milfoil and try to detect any other invasive aquatic species threatening the health of Lincoln Pond. We would love to have more Association members participating in the program. New training sessions will be scheduled for late spring and summer and information about them will be posted here. If you are interested, please contact Gerry Zahavi through the Association email:

* WE received DEC approval for our buoy installation, but only for four buoys.  All were deployed in 2023 -- two by the causeway and two on the far side of the small island across from the causeway. They will again be intalled in May of 2024.

* See more notices and information on local Internet service providers, the Lake Champlain Basin Program Grant (including access to the final report), and the causeway bridge replacement plans here: Notices/Activities -- or via the menu link at the bottom of this page).

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.
