When I saw your pictures of the kids skating on the pond it brought back memories of
    when I was a kid in town.  It seems that the pond was always frozen by Christmas and
    we would all be skating through vacation week.  We could skate at night, too, because
    the town turned on the lights.

    Another thing that I remembered was that my father, Walter Cyr, would plow the snow
    off of the pond.  It took some doing, but I finally tracked down a newspaper clipping and
    picture of that.

    The best that I can figure is that the picture was from 1970. Coleen Collette
