The Great Sacandaga Lake Association held its annual meeting last Friday. It was poorly attended, with maybe 30 to 40 people taking part.
That was too bad, since there was some good information provided by the GSLA, the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District, a New York?State Department of Transportation engineer concerning the Batchlerville Bridge's status and the Sacandaga Protection Committee.
What is even more disappointing is there are only about 580 members out of a possible 4,500 permit holders. This organization monitors the lake cleanliness, stocks fish, provides free boating classes, keeps an eye on the lake level and even provides scholarships to area high school students.
Maybe it's the exorbitant family membership fee of $25, or perhaps people just don't know about it. If it's the latter, please check it out at www.gsla.org.
