Cheryl’s family has owned a camp on Meddybemps Lake since 1942 and is therefore a 3rd generation Meddybempster. She has come to the lake every summer of her 71 years and never missed one! She lived in Meddybemps year-round for 6 years from 2009 to 2015. She has introduced many friends and relatives to the lake over the years, many of whom have visited over and over, considering it a favorite vacation spot. In her free time, Cheryl enjoys reading, helping manage the local (Calais, Maine) animal rescue, cooking, travel, and being a grandma to two active little girls.
