Town Wide Assessment Review:
The review of all real property on the Island will take
place during the months of July, August, September and
part of October. The review will require access to the
property for an exterior and interior analysis. To
accomplish this task the plan is to divide the Island by
Tax Maps. The Island has three tax maps (60, 61 and
62). You can identify your tax map by either checking
the wall map in the Assessor’s Office or by checking
your tax bill. Property/Lots appearing on: Tax map 60
will be reviewed in July, Tax Map 61 will be reviewed
in August, Tax Map 62 will be reviewed in September.
Each lot may not require an interior review, but in the
event a review is necessary and not made a card will be
left on the property, usually on the door knob. Contact          NISULA, SUSAN A., 64, of Frye Island, Maine and

BOAT BUILDING and RACING
CONTEST – August 25th
WHAT A BOAT ! ! ! ! !
Wow! What a boat! The Lichtenberger family
transported their boat to Recreation Beach last Saturday
morning, in the blazing sunshine, and showed us what a
dedicated family can do. It was a real sailboat. Francis,
father of the family, adapted plans and directions he
found on the internet.
Marj, the mother, was involved in many ways, as were
their four boys. Alex 8; Max 7; Jack 5; and Peter 2, were
the major painters of the boat - and they were joined by
four visiting friends who all ended up with much paint
on the boat - and on their clothes.
At Recreation Beach, Alex, Max, Jack and Peter, along
with two visiting friends, sailed their boat helped by a
gentle wind. They had also made paddles, if needed.
Truly a seaworthy boat, with its 14 foot high mast. No
water in the boat except for that brought in by the boys'
dripping bathing suits.
According to the rules of the contest, only the specified
materials were used - 2 sheets of plywood, four 2 by 4's,
a pound of nails and 4 tubes of waterproof adhesive.
Francis said, "All we had left were a few scraps".
Congratulations to the Lichtenberger family for their
truly remarkable boat which was named Red Mill Best
in Show, junior division.
Two other families were unable to show their boat
Saturday. They were winners of the Red Mill Best in
Show, for seniors. The Torra family and the DiSalvo
families combined their building materials and built a
spectacular large boat which we hope to see on the lake
later.
Red Mill Lumber Company provided the building
materials. Bob DesFosses was the photographer.
RuthAnn Bourque and Mary Deming organized the
project this year.
