GREAT turnout for the milfoil mat moving. Special thanks to Alex Carpenter for organizing, the Sylvia Lake Association for publicity, Joe Lacks for lending his pontoon boat to the effort, and to the Kraker, Dodds, Griebsch, Sprague, Undercoffler, Reilly, and Tersmette families and friends for providing diving, muscles, and cleanup efforts. Many hands make light (or at least efficient) work. It takes a team to save our lake. Photos: Emily Sprague
