Generations of my family have called Vermont home - most of them living within the Lake Champlain Basin. My grandparents' camp on Malletts Bay transformed the summers of my youth into one big lake adventure. Now my children are experiencing that same wonder. In preparing for our move from Bennington to Williston I found a pond yacht made by my grandfather at age 10. Over the winter I hope to restore the yacht so that we can return it to Lake Champlain in the spring.
This landscape - this lake - this basin, are intertwined with all of our lives and define what it means to live here. I am very happy to have a hand in supporting ECHO, this wonderful institution that is the voice, the educational gateway, to Lake Champlain.
