Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, we adjusted our planned activities as summarized below.


We met at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 8th at the Adirondack History Museum pavilion in Elizabethtown (see photo). While attendance was a bit under our normal numbers due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we had a very productive meeting. We will post minutes of the meeting very soon here.

ROAD CLEANUP -- We met on Saturday, June 20, 2020 for our annual road clean-up. More than two dozen Association members showed up (some arrived after the photo was taken).What a turnout! We were done in less than an hour! We kept our distance, and had ample supplies of gloves and hand sanitizer to keep everyone safe. Thanks to all who showed up!

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.
