the health of the lake

As I look out on the lake this morning I am seeing green algae on the water by our beach.  With the sewer project not passing, I am concerned.  We have seen a heavy growth of weeds in the lake this summer.  We need to address our problems before things get worse.  Everyone around the lake needs to do their part in controlling the nutrients going into the lake.  Leaving natural growth on land near the shore provides an important buffer zone.  Perhaps we should also think about using our annual membership dues to rent a weed cutter next summer.  Let’s get the dialogue going.  We are all in this together!

John & Lynn Washburn

It has been strange as well as sad this summer walking or boating by camp # 97 and not seeing John & Lynn Washburn.  They are very much missed!  From the moment we bought our camp 40 years ago John & Lynn have been “front & center” in the LPA.  They have given so much of their talents and time for the lake – – John serving as LPA president from 1989 to 1995, & both of them representing us at New England and state conferences year after year.  John’s “History of the Lake Parker Association – – Taking Care of the Lake” is a testament of their love & dedication.  We all owe them a debt of gratitude!   We miss you, John & Lynn!
