Hello Members of the Lake Association, and Residents of Norwood!  

My name is Michael McGinnis, and I will be the President of the Norwood Lake Association for the 2016-2017 term.  I am taking over from William Grant, who did a great job as acting President after the unfortunate death of Jim McFaddin.  He kept the paperwork straight, and the projects and ideas we had for protecting Norwood Lake for future generations going.  I hope to follow the guidelines that were set down by previous Presidents, and continue on the tradition.

We had our annual meeting at the American Legion Post #68 (THANK YOU to Elaine Saarinen and the girls that work there for the great setup!) recently, where elections for the year took place.  We have some new officers (including me!).  We are welcoming Larry Averill, the new Vice President,  Colleen Chapin as Secretary, Maureen Gaffney as or new Treasurer (taking over for long-time member Elaine Perry).  Elaine Saarinen and Terry LaFleur will be advisors to the group for the coming year.

We also had a presentation from Mr. Lee Harper, concerning the milfoil survey that his company conducted on Norwood Lake, and the results will be posted here in the near future.  A representitive of Brookfield Power was also on hand to let us know what was going on with the Dam and water levels.

We have a few projects coming up soon, and we will have a newsletter covering all the information about the Lake in the near future.  Make sure to check in for any updates, and as always, if you have any questions or comments, please email the Norwood Lake Association at:  norwoodlake@norwoodny.org

Thank you!!                               Michael McGinnis, President
