I was the Caretaker at Camp Debrece outside Livingston Manor in Sullivan County for 14 years. During this time I became friends with your Father Bryan Burgin. Bryan would come to Debruce often to direct the Hunter Safety Program for the young people attending the program. Your father and mother would sometimes come to visit on the weekend. I loved my years at Debruce and working as a Special Game Protector as well. I enjoyed knowing
your father and am proud that I too served as a Hunter Safety Instructor. I have the certificate of appreciation for serving as an instructor signed by your father. I remember Bryan as Head DEC Region 4 ECO. Along with Region 3 ECO
Burton Lindsley and your father were my two favorite (NYS Conservation Dept. ) Department Environmental Conservation Officers. I miss both of these fine men. Thank you for sharing your memories of Alder Lake.

Is this lake public? Can I paddle board on it? Says Erika
I was born in Margaretville on May 16, 1938 and as far back as I can remember, my dad, Bryan Burgin would take me fishing at this lake numerous times
during the summers - The last time I was there would have been the summer of 1955 - I have a copy of the book ''Alder Lake'' by Joshua Gerow - that the Fuelane Company gave to dad in 1960 and was passed down to me - looking at the
pictures of the lake and the large stone house brought tears to my eyes - thank you for being on the web and returning me if only in my mind to a very beautiful past -
