It’s January and the weather is making us long for the summer! So, for today’s post, we thought we’d look back to those delightful summer days at Crystal Lake and share a few photos of the famous Crystal Ski Club who once graced the lake and performed incredible water acts. So many talented local people were members of this club, and their daring aquatic performances still impress us today. In fact, this year, we are busy preparing an exhibition on the history of Crystal Lake which will surely bring back some memories to many of our followers. The history of the lake is quite enchanting, from being a premier destination for people far and near, to being the home to a once grand hotel. And who can forget Jimmy’s and their delicious snacks? We’d love to hear from you! If you have Crystal Lake mementos, photos or stories you’d like to share, please reach out to us! And if you were a member of the Crystal Ski Club, we’d love to learn more about the club and your experiences! 😎🌊 #smalltownbighistory #ellingtonct #ellingtonhistoricalsociety⁠
