Video:  The Wintry Lure of Clemons Pond

Even as winter in Hiram grows long in the tooth - seeming especially endless during the month of March - we can appreciate the great and changeable beauty on display at Clemons Pond. Many thanks to Rich Colicchio for producing this new time-lapse video during the months of February and March.

LakeSmart – The Clemons Pond Initiative

Judy and Doug Bradley and Victor Lerish were recently certified as LakeSmart evaluators for Clemons Pond properties, four of which have already been evaluated.


This voluntary, free and non-regulatory evaluation takes about an hour. Judy, Doug and Victor will be happy to share what they have learned from their training, both generally and also as it applies to your specific property – with the ultimate goal of keeping Clemons Pond as clean as possible into the foreseeable future.

Breathtaking Aerial Views of the Pond

Following are amazing aerial photos of Clemons Pond taken during Fall 2015 with a drone-based camera. Ethan Tucker, who is Victor and Joanna Lerish's son-in-law, operated the drone and camera. These photos provide rarely seen perspectives of the pond and vividly reveal how beautifully Big and Little Clemons Ponds knit into the surrounding topographic fabric.


Many thanks to Ethan for sharing these special views of Clemons Pond at such a spectacular time of year.
