    Hitch Hiker - the south end chick by Darlene Sprague
  • Kidney Donor Needed for Lake Resident.  Request Letter.

  • Vermont State wide Loon Watch Day, Sat, July 18th. Darlene's report: 2 adults and 1 chick on east side of north end; 1 lone adult midway of Lake towards south past Boulder Beach area) on east side; 1 adult and 1 chick south end near Beaver Brook Area which crosses the lake frequently. Can't say this enough about asking boaters and PWC riders to PLEASE give loons a wide berth. Observations of many close calls. The south end chick seems to have only one parent and when left alone while the parent dives for food, the chick is difficult to see especially in choppy water and is extremely vulnerable.

  • July 4th Boat Parade Pictures.  Most Patriotic Boat: The Concannon Camp; and Best Shoreline Decoration: The Concannon Camp - a double winner!  Also a special mention of the creativity of the “Champ” float which was created by the Dooley family out of the Boisvert camp.

  • Fireworks Photos A friend of Dennis Casey who is a professional photographer, Steve Legge, took these amazing pictures of the Association fireworks Friday, July 3rd: Thanks to Steve and Dennis for sharing them.

  • Loon update July 7, 2015 from Darlene. Lake Groton has two loon chicks on the north end, one week old today - their neighbors have named them Janice and Janet.  Boaters and photo op folks, please keep your distance, do not follow them or approach Loons. (it's against the law) Call Fish and Wildlife warden if you see this kind of activity. Chicks are difficult to see in choppy water and when their parents are not with them. They are very vulnerable at such a young age and need our help and protection.
    The south end loons did not nest. However they are a very strong pair and the are holding their territory at that end of the lake.
    Church Summer Suppers at the Methodist Church in Groton. Thursdays 5:30 pm until all are served. July 9th through August 13th. Traditional covered dishes by the famous "Church Ladies" - great eating! Suggested donation $8.00 adults/ $5.00 kids up to age 10 years.
