Many thanks to Kristin Barber for helping me to scrape and stain the dock and to Kristin, Eric Whitcomb, Ed Montgomery, and Paul Ellis for launching!

Also, many thanks to Paul Ellis, Walt Wark, and Tim Bradley for helping to shovel dirt and make a foot path for easier staff gauge access used to measure water levels as requested by the state water commissioner.
