Schroon Lake



Schroon Lake

By John R. Vollaro              March 2006



The story goes that when I was one month old, my mother used water from a stream that fed into Schroon Lake to make my formula. From that point on, this small lake in up state New York and its surrounding area has provided the context for many experiences that have been significant to me. It was here that I learned how to swim, water ski, sail and drive a motor boat. It was here that I met my first serious girl friend, began to date, and announced my engagement to be married. It was here that I enjoyed raising my children the most because during our many summer vacations I had the most time to spend having fun with them. It is here that we make our home in these retirement years and watch our grandchildren enjoying the same adventures as I did, learning to swim and boat, and camp and hike. Since Schroon lake is the theater in which so many stages of my life have played out, there is a wealth of stories and pictures that have accumulated over the years.
