Summer is around the corner!
Greetings from Pequawket Lake! After a relatively mild winter and somewhat cool spring, activity is beginning to blossom around our beautiful lake:
-The ice was out on the main lake on March 13th and out everywhere on March 16th
-The warm winter temperatures pushed the ice fishing derby back a week- the turnout was down
-The contractor has completed the new boat launch and it is ready to use
-The crystal clear water reminds us of the need to protect our watershed. Your participation in PLPA is critical to maintaining the quality and value of our most important asset. We look forward to your continued support!
-Lots of activity on the real estate front- we will welcome several new owners at our meeting
-John Pappinkou has an exciting new promotion! Available this year: PLPA insignia wine glasses and tumblers. Get your dues level orders in early in order to take advantage of this new opportunity! Glasses will be available for pickup at the annual meeting.
Mark Eastman, PLPA President

The Seven Sectors of Pequawket Lake
To best understand the historical diversity of the lake, the authors of the book From Horn Pond to Pequawket Lake thought it best to divide the lake into sectors to understand its history. Three main parameters were used in defining sectors: (1) A fairly consistent number of cottages per sector resulting in an average number of 24 cottages for each; (2) geographical location and wholeness; and (3) social connectedness.
Naming the sectors was a challenge. THREE of the sectors are named according to compass points on the main body of the lake (NW, NE, SW). THREE sectors are best defined not by compass points, but by three distinct and unique geographical features (Crescent, Peninsula, Outlet).
