10/13/2017: DelRay Construction spent two long days completing phase one of the Dam repair. The temporary dam was constructed with 1200 lbs. cement blocks, marine plywood, tarps, crushed stone and sandbags. Phase two next week will consist of installing a pump to control water seepage and mud sucking under the bridge.

10-7-17: Sixteen volunteers met at the Skyline Quarry and filled one hundred and fifty sandbags then deposited them near the dam. Jerry Dwyer, Bill Keohane, Maureen Keohane, Dave Gauthier, Dominick Cristelli, Vic Laptik, Thomas Burns, Skylar Burns, Ron Campbell, Leon Veretto, Chris Veretto, Frank Kirchhof, Patty Kirchhof, Joe Breton, Dolores Breton, Al Breton. Thank you all for a fantastic job!

10-4-17: We will be fixing the dam in the next couple of weeks. We need volunteers to fill sand bags this Saturday, October 7th, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. We will meet at the dam (north end of the lake on Conklin road) at 9am and proceed to Skyline Quarry which closes at noon.

10-4-17: The last CLA meeting for the year was held with good attendance and updates. Minutes will be posted on the website soon.

9/6/17: Kayak and boat stickers are now available for CLA members. Please contact Monique Lussier at mclj181@comcast.net.

7/25/17: From the July 25th CLA Meeting update on the Dam: We have begun purchasing material for the Dam repair. The target date to start is late August or early September. The primary obstacle for starting is the high water level. This makes building a coffer dam to hold back the lake more difficult. Lets hope we don't get a great deal of rain before then.
