    What a glorious race w/ young and older runners, cheered on by the legions of people standing and sitting in front of Lovel's Library and Kezar Realty. The multi float festive parade w/ Al and Jacky Stearns as Grand Marshalls, in the spiffy red convertible, was a true Americana parade. Kudos and thanks for the sweet memories!

        Jaysen, This was a bad year for photos. Two of my regular photographers were not there that day and I didn't know about it until after. I will see if I can get a couple.

            I have missed the Lovell Old Home Days for 52 years in a row. I had better get on the ball before I don't have any years left to visit.

            Over the next few months, KezarLife  is looking forward to following a property's transformation where an older Maine lakeside cottage will disappear and a new year-round residence will be constructed. Kezar Realty is interested in following the change in this specific lot, as it was the Agency's very first settlement in November 2009.

            I am reminded of a line in Robert C. William's book, Lovewell's Town, where he says that "...history is the story of change over time, as well as continuity." Over time, more people have come to see Kezar Lake, and Lovell, as a place for a year-round residence rather than just a spot for summer recreation. I believe that the lake, the town and the region are all beneficiaries of this change.

            When the property was purchased, the new owners did so with an eye to an uncertain date in the future when they would leave their overseas home and transfer back to Maine. During that the time, the camp was used by family, friends and renters but plans for a new home were always being worked on.

            Prior to returning to the United States, the time-consuming task of surveys, construction estimates, planning board presentations, reviews, site visits and finally, approval, all had to take place. Once completed, it was on to the sharpening of the pencils with the builder and the mountains of paperwork requested by the lender.

            Over the next few months, I think it will be fun to follow the building of a new Kezar Lake home.
