Clemons Pond Association
2018 Holiday Message from Doug Bradley, CPA President
As 2018 comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to once again welcome all of the new members to the Clemons Pond Association (Ann Frizzell, Sam & Sue Simonson, Ben Heneveld & Elicia Carmichael, Chip & Betsy Arrison and Dean & Kerin Thrasher). During 2018 we also saw the departure of Dave & Normie Limbert, David Howard & Rich Colicchio as well as the passing of Betty Zelman. These members will be greatly missed, but always remembered for their friendship and contributions to the Association.
I am looking forward to continuing our great start with the Maine Lakes Society “Lake Smart Program” in 2019. To date we completed 12 property evaluations and all received “Lake Smart” awards. I truly believe this program has the potential to help us maintain and possibly improve the conditions of Clemons Pond in an attempt to preserve what Mother Nature has given us.
On behalf of myself and the officers of the Clemons Pond Association, I would like to wish all of our membership, and all visitors to our website, a happy and joyous holiday season and a healthy and prosperous 2019.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the spring meeting.

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.
