President’s Message Proactive not Reactive 2019
There is no doubt that we had a real winter! There was plenty of ice that measured at least 20 inches deep and for a few weekends you could skate from one end of the lake to the other on crystal clear ice that was fun to see through. Ice fishing, ice hockey, tubing or skiing behind snowmobiles or just sitting on the beach with your face to the sun were winter activities providing lots of fun and keeping the four walls from closing in. February 2 nd ’ s prediction of an early spring was just not true. We endured sub-zero temps for a very long time and we are still waiting at the end of March for the hot sun to start melting the ice to replenish our lake with new cleansing waters. Our annual meeting last year at the American Legion in Gray opened the doors to a better seating plan, air conditioning and easy access for all. Mark your calendars for July 13 th to keep abreast of all the dynamic programs that are happening on your lake, peruse the new merchandise and just socialize with the lake community. This year we will be proposing a by-law change to the membership in order to begin the annual meeting earlier so we can leave earlier to enjoy our special weekends on the lake.
Over the winter the board of directors and committee members have worked to update and create new initiatives. Flipping the pages ahead will give you some of what has been worked on throughout this winter. I encourage you to educate yourself on what is happening on, around and within the lake to maintain the mission. Thank you to all those who have helped the board of directors to achieve our goals. Your dedication, volunteering and monetary assistance is what assures our successes. I am blessed to serve with a board of directors and committee members who are caring, professional, and proactive in thought, bringing to the table suggestions to further our programs to maintain the lake’s existence which leads to a memorable summer for all.
May the warm sun always be on your face and the gentle breeze keep you cool,
Pam Wilkinson LSLA President
2019 LSLA Annual Meeting Saturday, July 13 th , 2019 • American Legion Auxiliary Hall • 15 Lewiston Rd., (Route 100 & 202) Gray, ME 9:30 – 10:00AM social hour and peruse our merchandise; 10:00 – 12:00 meeting begins and ends.
Updates on our dam, safety, water quality, milfoil programs plus much more that benefit your lake. Socialize with new and old friends and see the merchandise that is excellent for gifts or yourself! Someone visited our lake last year and wanted to see what made it so special. It’s the people. The building is air conditioned and easy to find. Though we are not meeting on the lake, we promise to have a view for you. LSLA Board of Directors
Plant Give Away at the Annual Meeting Once again -with the help of O’Donal’s Nursery we will be providing 100 large, 10 inch potted plants and native plants for you to improve your buffer with. First come – first served to any supporting member of LSLA.
Safety Patrol From Sharon Lamontagne
Reflecting on our slogan of Safety is NO Accident , I am reminded of and so grateful for the team of people that I have behind me to run this program. We will continue to educate and try our best to avoid accidents like last summers. There are hundreds of hours involved in this effort of keeping us all safe. But we still don’t reach everyone. We had a very serious accident that was investigated by the warden service. A reckless jet skier out after dark crashed into a float. Luckily there was only minor personal injury but property damage did occur. So we will continue to preach, educate, remind, and focus on safety. The State of Maine had a total of 4 recreational boat crashes last summer that resulted in 4 deaths, 11 property damaged boat crashes that involved more than $2000.00 in damages, and 10 personal injury crashes that involved the Warden Service. Although these numbers are down dramatically from 2017, Little Sebago Lake is unfortunate to be one of the lakes included in 2018’s statistic. I will briefly outline some of what we will be working on this summer. First and foremost is the ever present and extremely visible Patrol Boat, captained and managed by Roger Leblanc with his crew of John Bernier, Earl Spalding, Kate Martin and Cedric Harkin. We expect to be out every Friday through Sunday this summer and the entire week of July 4 th . The primary role of the boat is to observe boating behavior, promote the association, provide life preservers and assistance when needed, educate, and be a constant reminder to us all that safety matters. You may occasionally also see the boat this summer hanging close to the milfoil boat while the divers are underwater. There have been some close calls with boats coming too
close and putting the divers at risk. We will be using the patrol boat when necessary to keep others a safe distance away to protect the divers. We will also be managing the schedule for the State of Maine Wardens to be on our lake most every weekend. Last year, they were with us 17 days and checked 638 boats, writing only 25 citations. We will again be sponsoring the National Association of State Boating Law class on a date in June to be determined. A total of 725 Mainers took this class last year. Please look for more information on our website and or be sure you have provided us with a good email address and we will send out the information when it is available. The State of Maine is also offering many classes throughout the area. Information can be found at www.maine.gov/ifw/ programs-resources/safety-courses/boating- safety . If you cannot find a course, call the regional safety coordinator at 207-287-5220. We will cover the cost of any supporting member of our association who chooses to take any of these classes. Something new that we are starting this year will be private water safety education sessions. We will come to your property on a Saturday morning for an hour or so to emphasize our commitment to safety. This will be geared to children and we will go over proper fitting of life preservers, rescue and throw ring techniques, paddle board and kayak laws, age limits for boat driving, and give a little tour of our boat. If interested in scheduling a session, please reach out to us through our website or call 207-809-4706. And finally, we are working with the towns of Windham and Gray along with the Emergency Dispatch Center in Windham. Predetermined access points have been identified and at the start of each of our drivers shifts, they will call the dispatch center and give them the hours that we will be on the lake. If there is a 911 emergency call made to the dispatch center, the appropriate agency will be dispatched and then they will call us. If we are available and able to help in any way, we will. Thank you and remember…………….. Safety is NO Accident!
13 th Annual Pirate Parade Ahoy, Maties! The annual Pirate Parade is bound to be full of fun and adventure for all!
Dress your boats, your children, your grandparents and your pets. Climb on board a seaworthy vessel and join us JULY 27 at 2 PM . Please note date change! Rain date will be announced on Facebook and would be held the following day. We look forward to seeing everyone out on the high seas and looking for pirates along the shorelines! The parade commences on the middle lake side of the lower narrows at 2 and proceeds up the middle lake to the Sand Bar before the upper narrows where you can toss an anchor over and enjoy some fun with your fellow Pirates.
As always, please do not throw water balloons or other objects onto people’s boats. Please be aware there are small children and cameras aboard. When decorating please keep your registration stickers viewable. Thank you!
I Remember When… It all happened several years ago, when I was website editor for Little Sebago LakeAssociation. I was always amazed at the stories that people sent about their fond times with family and friends on Little Sebago. I received and email from a
Camp Sweet Content By Carol Ann Doucette
the outlines in the photo. I could not find the direction as I looked to the west, thinking I would never know who those people from the past were located. One of the photos identified a Hacker Hall holding a baby whose last name was Skillins. Of course you know that the Skillins family still lives on the west side of the lake off Cambell Shore Rd. The knowledgeable Kimberly Skillins Shelley was my next person to
contact. After sharing the pictures I had, she surprisingly knew of Camp Content and……. It still existed! Filled with excitement, Kim took me to the exact place that the photos were taken. The
lady in Costa Rica, asking me if I would be interested in some old pictures she had found when a family member had passed away. At the time she sent me several pictures and then also sent a full CD with many more. Inside that CD was the story of her family starting around 1902 and their time on their “beloved Little Sebago”. The pictures and story intrigued me and sent me on a mission to find out where “Camp Sweet Content” was located. I had the photo of the
cottage remained exactly as it had been in the photos. I could not believe it. A place frozen in time! The view looking over the rock walls towards the lake had been obstructed by trees over the years but I could still envision what those owners may have seen at the time. The current owners, after renting the cottage for 30 years, finally purchased it several years ago, leaving it unchanged. It is a tribute to those who preserve the past so we in the present can appreciate the simpler ways things used to be. I was so taken by this cottage that I actually painted it and have made thank you cards to share with those loving the lake. Enjoy these pictures knowing that many before you love this lake as much as you do and knew what a privilege it is to be able to be on its shores and experiencing its beauty.
view looking east on the middle lake, towards the islands. Our cottage at that time was on the other side of the lake, directly across from the picture. I would envision them looking down at the place that our cottage was located, at that time undeveloped land. It was winter and I made my way out on the ice, standing with the photo, trying to match it up with
What is the Spring Appeal?
When you have questions concerning Little Sebago Lake and its community, where do you turn? If you are like most members, you visit the LSLA website, newsletter or Facebook page. Or perhaps, you will reach out to one of our board members? Why? Because you know you will receive current information concerning the health, safety and activities on Little Sebago from those who love it most- Little Sebago Lake Association members. Gone are the days when the majority of lake love was spent between Memorial and Labor days. Little Sebago requires year round attention and planning to assure that when summer arrives and peak season begins, we are full steam ahead with all that our association offers our membership. The Dam Crew, Safety Patrol, Milfoil divers, and Loon lovers are all suiting up for another splendid summer season. The LSLA’s season kickoff begins with this newsletter and our Spring Appeal. We will request support from over 1000 lake owners and, in keeping with our mission, “… create and nurture a community of lake stewards, educate users on lake safety, and always be mindful that human needs must be balanced with the needs of the natural environment”.
Your donation isextremely important because it offers immediate resources that are directed at fulfilling our mission. The suggested giving categories are structured to provide a level that is most comfortable for you and your family. Every dollar donated is used for the health and longevity of Little Sebago Lake and the property surrounding it. As property owners, we all have a vested interest in Little Sebago. We are hoping to secure 80% participation in 2019, and will report more specific donor support information at our annual meeting in July. Every dollar counts. May we count on you? Little Sebago Lake has a robust and engaged community of families; some going back many generations. It is our goal to continue to protect and preserve our lake for the future generations to come. You may return the enclosed donor support form OR pay online at https://littlesebagolake.com/giving/ . Thank you to all who support the association and the beneficial programs created for you and yours. See you on the water! Debra Lavoie Membership Committee Merchandise Update 2019 Calendars have been reduced to $12 - a good price with 9 months remaining, but also a great opportunity to enjoy some beautiful photos of the lake. It’s always nice to save a copy as a souvenir of the lake. Laminated maps are expected to arrive in a couple of months. The Association is working with Cumberland County Soil and Water to update the lake map to include identification of previously unnamed coves, roads and points. A message will be posted on the Association website when the maps are available.
Monitoring Lake Clarity?
(Transparency) With A Secchi Disk One simple method of assessing the effect of cultural eutrophication in lakes is to measure the concentration of planktonic (suspended) algae in the water. Algae are at the base of the lake ecosystem food web. Volunteer water quality monitors begin monitoring their lake by measuring Secchi disk transparency. The Secchi disk is a simple device that is used to estimate algal concentrations, based on water clarity. Volunteers in the LSM are provided with a viewing scope and a Secchi disk that is attached to a calibrated line. They are instructed on the procedure for taking a Secchi disk reading by training staff. This procedure is optimum for identifying water quality trends over time. Readings are generally taken at the deepest point in a lake.
The Secchi disk is generally a reliable device for quickly and inexpensively assessing lake water quality. The primary uses of Secchi transparency data are: 1) to characterize or define the existing water quality of a lake, and 2) to identify and track long-term water quality trends. Secchi disk transparency is an indirect water quality indicator, because an assumption is made that water clarity is affected primarily by algal growth in the water. That assumption is reasonable in most cases. However, other factors may influence transparency, including the amount of sediment that is suspended in the water, and natural water color. Natural color and suspended sediments vary widely from one lake to another. Color is influenced by the concentration of natural dissolved organic substances in the water. These “humic acids” can stain the water in some lakes to the point where light penetration into the water column is substantially attenuated. Shallow
lakes may be subject to moderate concentrations of re-suspended bottom sediments in the water column, resulting from wind turbulence. Both color and sediment can limit the utility of Secchi transparency data as an indicator of biological productivity. However, for most Maine lakes, Secchi transparency is a reliable and relatively accurate method for assessing water quality. The tiny plants (algae or phytoplankton) and animals (zooplankton) that are suspended in lake water influence transparency. These living aquatic communities undergo seasonal and annual growth cycles, resulting in changes in their overall density, and in their location in the water column. Secchi transparency is often at a low point soon after the ice melts in the spring. That is when lakes mix, or “turn over,” causing nutrients and sediments from the lake bottom to become suspended in the water for a period of time. Silica that is swept up from the bottom sediments stimulates the growth of diatoms, a type of algae that experiences peak growth in the spring and fall (see diagram below). Diatom “blooms” often result in a brief period of reduced transparency in lakes. As the water warms and stabilizes during the summer, other types of algae will dominate the water column, depending on water temperature, nutrient levels and other factors. Some lakes become progressively less clear through the summer months,
while others may become clearer. The concentration of phosphorus in the water, the shape and depth of the lake basin, the orientation of the basin to prevailing winds, and the weather all influence water clarity, or transparency. Individual lakes are unique in the way that they respond to these influences. Volunteer lake water quality monitors learn over time what is “normal” for the lake that they monitor. Many Secchi transparency readings are needed over a period of years in order to confidently detect and track trends in lake water quality. The natural variability of water clarity and other indicators of lake quality complicates the detection of trends, which is why many complete seasons of data are generally needed in order to be able to recognize a true change in water quality. Thus volunteers are asked to collect complete seasons of data from May through September—or later—each year.

Dam Committee Report
Rod Bernier My wife Sherene and I moved to Little Sebago with our daughter 26 years ago. Our son has lived here for all of his 21 years and helps with Hopkins Dam work. I have been a Director on the Little Sebago Lake Association(LSLA) board for over 25 years. I’ve worn many different hats while serving as a Director. I’m a past LSLA president and have served on many committees. I’ve been helping with the dam since I moved onto the lake. When Bruce Micucci gave up his position as a Director many years ago, I became the Dam Committee liaison to the LSLA. I report to the other LSLA Directors on dam activity, conditions and needs. I also help with opening and closing the dam gate and with general maintenance on and around the dam. When the weather starts to turn cold through the time until it starts to get warm again, I check the dam at least a couple of times a week to make sure there are no leaks, no damage and no debris or objects caught in the dam gate or sluiceway. I, along with Bruce, are responsible for notifying downstream operators of any water flow changes. I work with the Dam Committee to ensure that we have a safe, compliant, well-operating dam that will benefit Little Sebago Lake and downstream water bodies today and for many years to come. Justine Beaudoin Greetings, my name is Justine Bohnson Beaudoin and I have lived on Little Sebago Lake since I was 9. My great
Having held our first Dam Committee meeting of the year on March 6th we wanted to say a bit about each member of our Dam Crew and what their responsibilities are on the team. It is important for us that the home owners around the lake know that we share your passion for Little Sebago Lake and that we have for many years at many levels. Bruce Micucci My wife Virginia, my two sons, and I moved to Little Sebago Lake in 1984. Our family now includes three adult grandchildren. I have served for over 25 years on the LSLA Board including two terms as President. I worked with the board and state to implement the first water quality testing program on the lake. In the 20 years I ran the program I got to see my granddaughter become the youngest certified water quality tester in the state at age 14. With Rick Sullivan now carrying on the program we have a documented understanding of the health and directional progression of Little Sebago Lake. For just about all of my 35 years here I have been the Dam Keeper. First as a crew member to Dave Hopkins and then to Dam Keeper after Dave Hopkins early passing. Dave’s simple philosophy of “you can do little about low water, but you can ruin a lot of people’s lives with high water” is there as a reminder every time we turn the wheel. My primary responsibilities are insuring the water level is where it should be at the mandated times of the year, and making sure we are compliant with State Dam Inspector, the State Dam Safety Office, and IFW Regulations.
Dam Committee Report
grandfather John was the first of 6 generations to settle on the Cambell Shore Side of the lake. That was back when the camp was surrounded by a barbed wire fence to keep the cattle from the Cambell Farm out of the yard. My grandparents Dr Richard Bohnson and his wife Margaret and my Great Uncle John Bohnson moved into the two camps on Sunset Cove and there my Dad , Richard Jr , his brother Paul , and twin sisters Ann and Ethel (Chris) grew up with their cousin John. I ventured on the lake when I was a young kid where boats took the place of bikes and homework was done lakeside until it was too cold to do so. I feel blessed to have grown up here and to be able to see my children and my family members make memories here is a something I hope continues for generations to come. My roll with The Little Sebago Lake Dam Committee is to monitor the weather to inform Bruce and Rod of any severe flood or rain risks and to give them lead time to adjust the dam for the water flow into the lake. I became NOAA SKYWARN Certified 5 years ago and have a great weather community that keeps me informed. I love weather and to be able to use the tools I have to help the lake that I’ve called home for 40 years is something I feel honored to do. David Vance My parents Don & Joanne Vance re-built
our summer camp on Little Sebago Lake in 1966. This was our camp during my childhood and continues to be camp. My Mom served as the Lake Association Secretary for a bit, back when Ed Langlois was President. She also worked with Grace Broadway on the board of directors. My wife, Judy, our two daughters and I built our home on Little Sebago In 1990. We recently built a smaller home on the Lake in 2016. Our Family has grown to include three grandchildren. I have helped with the Dam Committee for a couple of years now. Previously I completed the installation of new oak timber seals on the footing and door bottom. I also replaced the wooden deck. My responsibilities are to help monitor the structural integrity of the dam, and check the conditions of the lower Dams. Look for sink holes and maintain and grease the lift gears. Other members of the extended crew are Jonathan Bernier and Jim Theis
Wake Up! By Kevin Murphy
Wake up! No, wait, wake down! Why? Let’s get into this wavering topic. As we surf through this, other resource material will be referenced that I urge you to review. We all know about the infamous “No Wake Zone” that many ignore. Some feel it doesn’t apply to them. Others have no idea the rule exists. Then there’s those that think they are honoring the rule, but really not. So just what is this rule and what does it really mean? First, you have to understand what Maine considers as a “water safety zone”. The official definition from the Maine Boating Guide is, “the area of water within 200 feet of any shoreline, whether the shoreline of the mainland or of an island” (1). This zone is referenced by Maine Statute on the lawful operating speed of a watercraft. Basically, the law says the boat must be operated at headway speed within this zone (2). OK, what is headway speed? Headway speed is the minimum speed the vessel may operate safely and under control. If the speed is too slow, then steering the watercraft may be a challenge endangering others around you. It is not a miles per hour, it is slowest you can go while maintaining control. Make sense? OK, now that we got these terms down, what’s up with my wakes? The intent of the law if to protect people and property. Boats that run at higher speeds can raise a wake high enough to capsize a kayak and cause erosion
to the shoreline. Back in the 70’s we loved to zip up and down shorelines as camps were few and far between. Boats were smaller, lighter, and not as fast as those today. We also didn’t understand the negative effect on the lake from the soil and other material washed into it back then. Ever see those ugly green blooms in the water? They are helped along from erosion (3). Today we have to be smarter on how to protect families, property, and the lake. Still not convinced? Tough group! OK, let’s talk liability. It is one ugly word, but one we need to consider these days where society has become extremely litigious. There’s actually a court case where a fisherman sued a boater because his wake caused the fishing boat to capsize. A wake caused this! Here’s the punchline - the court agreed with the fisherman. All this was over a wake (4). Why not save your wakes for when you need them. Skiing, wake boarding, and other such fun activities are always welcomed as long as you stay away from shorelines, islands, and others also having fun on the lake. We love to hear the squeals of delight from children as they bounce over the wakes on a tube. We don’t like to hear from others yelling at you for rocking or maybe even tipping over their canoes, SUPs, or any other watercraft. Safe distances and awareness are key. No one is telling you not to have fun, but have fun responsibly (5). There’s plenty of lake for us all to share and have fun making memories. Don’t be the one that spoils the fun for someone else (6).

LSLA Website From Kevin Murphy
Open your heart to discover the beauty and magic of what the lake can bring you, and you may soon discover the beauty and magic that others find in you.
Announcing the LSLA Website Face Lift! Yes, it happened. Did you see it? Did you notice it? We hope you like the new look. The old site was nice too, but we needed to upgrade the site to a more modern platform that will be easier to maintain and more flexible to update. We hope you find the site a valuable resource when you have questions. We also want your input on how it can be improved. As always, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions. We love hearing from you!

A summary financial report showing 2018 results compared to budget is attached. It also shows the proposed budget for 2019. We ended the 2018 year in excellent financial shape. Here are a few highlights: • Total 2018 income was $120,013 which was above budget by $7,233. Donations under our new membership appeal continued better than expected, and we had strong support for our year-end request for endowment gifts. We did not need to transfer interest & dividend income from our reserves and endowment investments. • Our budget for 2019 shows total income of $122,380 reflecting an increase in grant revenue for a larger DEP milfoil grant. The other revenue accounts are expected to be close to 2018 levels. • Total 2018 expenses were $110,354 which were below budget by more than $11,600. The biggest savings was in equipment purchases, since we delayed the purchase of a new dock to 2019. We also had lower costs than expected in upgrading our website and database and in our safety patrol program. • Our budget for 2019 shows total expenses of $120,900 reflecting the new dock system, higher accounting costs for the new board assistant, increased loon research funding and higher merchandise purchases for new maps. • Total Income Less Expense: We ended 2018 with positive cash flow and a net surplus of $9,659. Our 2019 budget shows a surplus of $1,480. Any funds needed at year-end will be drawn from Reserves. • Net Worth – At year-end 2018 we had total assets of $293,496, just over $23,000 higher than last year. This was due to the operating surplus and growth in invested funds for the endowment and reserves.
