August, 2016, 50th Biannual Meeting and Anniversary Celebration

The August meeting and kick-off to the 50th Anniversary Celebration for Halfmoon Lake Association was held at the WMCA Camp Mi-Te-Na, August 27. The nearly 90 members attending the business meeting heard reports and updates on a wide range of issues including the following: financials, town of Alton $250 offset-contribution, water quality, milfoil findings and eradication, neighboring lake issues, the successful Halfmoon Loon Family, boat traffic, and the boat parade was scheduled for September 3.

Elections for the HMLA board unanimously reelected the present board members for another two-year term (see HMLA Board, below). The 2017 July meeting was voted for July 8.

As part of a fund-raiser for the Association, a supply of new HMLA T-shirts and hats were on sale during and after the meeting.

Following the business meeting, the 50th Anniversary Celebration began with an introduction by Chairperson, Clare Bolster, of the day’s activities and a brief history by Bill Mannion of the Association’s founding. Clare introduced Matt Hanson, the director of Camp Mi-Te-Na, who welcomed all members and expressed his appreciation for the Association’s support over the years. This marks the 104th season that the camp has resided on the lake. The Association is ever so grateful for the use of the camps facilities.
