Mohegan Colony Association

I recently moved to a community that surrounds Mohegan Lake, near Peekskill, NY. It was established in 1923 to promote education and community. Lately (the past 30 years) the membership has dwindled from around 250 to 70. Back in the "good old days" people were hanging out with each other all the time. Everyone sent their kids to the community school that was built and founded by members. During the summer you couldn't park a car within a mile of the lake as the sides of the road were full. The beaches were packed with people. We even had a food stand in the lake house to make food for all those people. Back in the good old days, people wanted to hang out in their neighborhood with their neighbors.
