Hamlet City Lake
Postcard & photo submitted by Paul Ramey   March 30, 2002

"Here's another of the "painted/colored" post cards. This one of Hamlet City Lake many years back
and a current picture taken March 11th or 12th, 2002. As you're probably aware, they drained and it
stayed that way for several years. Then they filled it up again not too long ago. Believe it or not, I
learned to water ski in that lake around 1958. Jerry (C-Tick) Taylor's Dad let us use his boat and
we, along with Dan Shedd, Perry Covington and a few others would try to kill ourselves, going round-
and-round. After we were married and my wife, Ursula, had our first son (Charles, in 1960) she
learned to water ski there also. My Uncle, Lynwood Dyson, from Rockingham and who passed away
last year, had a boat and we would ski behind it on the lake also. Precious memories. "
