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
