What a precious jewel we have right here in Hamilton Township! I'm sure there are environmental or perhaps social reasons why "Lakeside," which was so very popular with my generation of the 30's and 40's is not opened to the public for swimming once again. The lake is spring-fed, and I'm sure there is very little pollution. Our 12th grade Hamilton High School choir evening beach party there will be ever in my memory. Who could ever forget a moonlit night over Gropp's Lake, or as we called it, "Lakeside?" Dreams and memories are made of this!
