Cut the cake: Beach House rededication, Elmore State Park

Governor Schumlin and others at the rededication of the Beach House at Elmore State Park, 6/25/2011
A smattering of images from my covering this event at Elmore State Park yesterday for the Vermont State Parks system.

The original Beach House was a project of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s and the governor's brief remarks focused on the parallels between then -- the Great Depression and the CCC program -- and now -- the present Great Recession and access to stimulus funds.   (Official press release here and some project images here.)

In weather related news, the day featured showers in the morning, then the weather broke for a bit, but more heavy rain fell during the night.  Can't do nothing about the weather... except complain and stay indoors.
