A LETTER FROM LINDA
|Hello! I am pleased to say that because
Judy King has agreed to partner with me, we are your 2002-2003
co-presidents. With Babs as our guide and with all your support, we
begin to plan for next year痴 work.
Judy and I will be in contact through the world of
e-mail. We extend to you a standing invitation to be included in
brainstorming and suggesting activities you think would help TLIA stay
alive and well. My year-round address and phone are P.O Box 119, Poland
ME 04291, (207) 998-4227. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
| Please call, write or e-mail me with
any concerns you have over the winter so I can act as a liason with our
team of experts (AVSWCD, LWRMA, Town officials, etc.) My goals for this
new work will be to meet and talk with members, meet new residents (if
you report to me their names and addresses), support individual members
who have volunteered to do specific projects, and encourage work on our
important Long-Range Watershed Management Plan.
A little about myself. I知 a life-long Mainer who grew up on a
truck garden farm in Cape Elizabeth, learning from my father how
important it was to include best-management practices in conservation.
He also educated others and built interest in resource protection areas,
such as Two Lights State Park so all could enjoy the Atlantic coast.
I graduated from the University of Maine (Gorham campus) with a
degree in elementary education. John Laskey graduated in my class and we
were married that June. We took teaching jobs in Mechanic Falls and
Poland and have both recently retired. In choosing a home near our work,
we found (in a Boston paper) a property on the southern end of the lake,
bordering on the Town Boat Road, then owned by John and Marion Bunney.
We moved in on Halloween day, 1969 and they became our next-door
neighbors. (Sometimes ask me what my daughter and I saw the next morning
on the way to school!) Those wonderful neighbors believed strongly that
the Lake Association was important. John joined and soon worked with Lew
Murray on water quality. The rest is history!
I知 ashamed that for years I didn稚 do much but remind John about
meetings and pay the dues. About fifteen years ago, I realized that I
should take an active part in lake doings, other than just enjoying it
with my family. Having two adult daughters and three teenage
granddaughters, I try to show them that nothing is status quo (on the
lake) and one person can make a difference on the land, on the lake and
in the watershed. I hope that this year I can be a part of making this
area a special place.
Until we meet again,
A LETTER FROM JUDY
|Hi. My name痴 Judy King and I知 a
relative newcomer to Tripp Lake. My husband, Dell, and I have just
completed our fourth season on the lake. We both love the beauty and
serenity it offers and have named our cabin the "Lucky Duck"
because we are indeed lucky to spend our summers in Maine and on Tripp.
I知 a special needs teacher for a public school and
Dell is a rehabilitation counselor. We have four grown children and a
brand new grandson born on September 29. You may have seen us walking
our aged springer spaniel, Derby, on Jordan Shore Drive. I spend time
tending my day lilies, feeding the birds, reading and relaxing while at
I look forward to meeting all members next summer and becoming a more
active TLIA member. I知 excited to have the opportunity to work with
Linda Laskey. Both she and her husband, John, are so knowledgeable about
the environment and Tripp Lake. I know I値l learn a lot during the
next year as I serve as co-president of TLIA with Linda.
My goals are to increase membership, learn more about environmental
issues and provide an opportunity for members to learn how to be
responsible homeowners as it relates to protecting our lake. I hope to
provide opportunities for members to become more active participants in
the Association. I plan to develop an ongoing series of workshops
throughout the summer months. If anyone has ideas for workshops or
would volunteer to lead a session, please contact me. Let me know
your ideas and how Linda and I can make your time at the lake more
My address (off season) is 31 Rachael Circle, South Easton, MA 02375.
My phone number is (508) 238-8124 and my e-mail is email@example.com
or firstname.lastname@example.org (work). In season, our address is 154 Jordan
Shore, Dr., Poland, ME 04274. Our phone number is (207) 998-3276.
I知 starting plans for our annual Family Picnic. In December we値l
find out if Tripp Lake Camp is available. If not, on to Plan B. Anyone
have any ideas where else we could have it?? We値l need volunteers to
help plan this event. Thanks in advance.
