Congratulations to Dorothy Malkin who informed us of her wedding to Timanous boy Dave Keady (Dave Goldberg at Timanous) by sending us this graphic. She is taking some graphic design classes at Parsons and did the design herself with Illustrator. Clara Hallard Fawcett would be proud.
Mark did a 16 mile Standup Paddleboard trip from the northern end of Long Lake back to Wohelo to raise money for Loon Echo Land Trust – http://loonecholandtrust.org/. Loon Echo Land Trust provides great local hiking trails on Bald Pate and Pleasant Mountain and also helps protects the watershed that feeds Sebago Lake. A 4 hour trip and he didn’t see another person on the lakes the whole way.
This fall the Rookies Island Dock (where Sebago Wohelo does waterskiing from) is getting some TLC from the same professionals that rebuilt Lewa dock last year. We’ll get you a final photo once it’s done.
