    So many wonderful memories as a child who grew up at Tamarack Lodge, Sherman Acres and Lake Alpine! My father was bartender and my mother was a waitress at Tamarack Lodge during the 60’s and early 70’s. We lived in a large trailer behind the lodge during late spring through fall (Highway 4 closed during the winter due to heavy snowfall), and sometimes we lived in cabins across the highway in the little subdivision (the Pickards, Snowdens and others).

    My parents were Jack and Shirley Townsend. Dad was a barber and bartender; Mom was a waitress, and eventually became a Realtor. They both passed away in 1991.
