Crystal Lake Redux

My latest post on has attracted the attention of others who also love our wonderful Crystal Lake. It turns out that this Thursday, September 15, from 7-9 PM, the Highlands Neighborhood Council, in collaboration with the Crystal Lake Conservancy, is holding a meeting at the old bathhouse at the Lake. The agenda: the future of the lake.

These groups envision Crystal Lake as a year-round facility. Part of their dream entails a new bathhouse to better serve the thousands of residents, young and old, who already frequent the lake during the two-month swimming season at the city waterfront. These ideas merit our attention and, I believe, our support. I plan on attending this event and hope that you will as well.

In January 1015, I retired after teaching English for 34 years at Newton South High School. I continue as girls' tennis coach there, this being my 26th year in that role. My wife, Dahlia Rudavsky, to whom I have been married for forty-four years, is an employment lawyer on the side of the oppressed. My wife graduated from Newton South, and we have lived in Waban since 1980. My favorite pastimes are writing (see my periodic column in the Newton Tab) and playing tennis. I also help raise funds for Yad Chessed, a wonderful local charity. You might also find me supporting various causes around Newton.

See you there, Bob! I’m looking forward to discussing the possibilities for Crystal Lake. At least I won’ t be bothered by robo-calls!
