From the time my cousin David and I had to be "rescued" from our rowboat as small boys, boating and spending time with friends and family at Lake Clark on the Susquehanna River has been a large part of my life. My family spent many weekends on the middle island until Hurricane Agnes swept everything away in 1972. It's been a long time since I mastered that rowboat, but my family still meets at the river throughout the summer months. — Norm Mable Licensed Funeral Director, Crematory Manager
