“We can find meaning and reward by serving some higher purpose than ourselves, a shining purpose, the illumination of a thousand points of light.” ― George H.W. Bush
This quote by our 41st president recognizes the need for individuals to share their time and energies with worthy causes. Gary Miller recognized a need nine years ago when he joined and helped found the newly-formed Sheepscot Lake Association (SLA), in Palermo. As a founding member he helped form the mission of the association to: “…work with property owners, local and state officials to preserve, enhance, and protect the beauty and quality of Sheepscot Lake and its adjacent areas.”
Soon after Gary Miller was elected president of the SLA and served for eight years. Under his leadership the membership grew and the programs expanded to include water quality inspections, courtesy boat inspections, annual loon count and participation in the Lake Smart program.
