President Bergeron’s Farewell Letter

I want to announce that I have resigned as President of the lake association.  My husband and I have sold our lake front property and moved closer to our children inLyndon,Vermont.  It was a bitter sweet decision for us.  We have always LOVEDHarvey'sLakeand, although we will be leaving, we will take with us many, many, fond memories.  My decision to resign was especially difficult for me as I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of making the association stronger, more organized and more informative for you members.  I feel like I was just getting started, but rest assured that you have a great, energetic, and multi-talented board in place.  I want to thank them all for their support, encouragement and hard work during my short tenure.  Jackie Spraguewill assume the position as Interim President and Dave Curtin as Interim Vice President.   Feel free to contact them with any questions or concerns.

And now one last item to update you on...the dam.  Many board members attended a Barnet select-board's meeting on August 12th.  Essentially the association was informed that  the Town views the dam to be their sole responsibility.   They do not want any lake association volunteers to remove and/or replace the stop-boards on the dam anymore.  The Town will provide its own designees to do this.  The new sluice gate has not yet been installed and it is unclear when it will be.  There remain many unanswered questions about the design and implementation of the new gate.  Although the lake association board feels a bit powerless at this point, they will continue to assess the risk/benefit of pursuing more options for action.

The Lake Harvey Association is a small but strong group.  Your continuing support through your camp memberships, generous donations, ideas and time are a greatly valued resource.  Everyone's participation, regardless of how large or small is appreciated and we thank you.

Enjoy your winter here at the lake!  It's a wonderful place.     Over and out,   Kathryn Bergeron

Loon chick has hatched

Hi everyone: The Harvey's Lake loon chick has hatched! After monitoring the loon nest in the marsh since May 28, I saw a loon with the chick on its back on the lake  yesterday, June 21. From the amount of loon calling that people have heard the last few nights, it seems  that the chick probably hatched earlier this week.
