We have been enjoying your website.  We have many memories of times past at Sylvia Lake. I spent my boyhood in Balmat so our gang was always camping, swimming, fishing, hunting and skating at the lake.  My father built a "camp" which he sold to Merton Van Sant.  Our neighbors on the lake were Linden and Gladys Oneil, Jay and Min Burns and all the Burns girls.

I met Sally when she was visiting her aunt and uncle, Joe and Florence Duchano.  A little incident that day when I was showing off for her with my boat is another memory, but all of a sudden we have just celebrated, rather quietly, our 48th anniversary.  

We would enjoy hearing from anyone who might remember us.  

Thank you for the website and the beautiful photographs.

that was purchased by Florence Duchano.
