Lubec, Maine - The Gardner Lake Tragedy
Twelve Lubec school children drowned that day, June 19, 1936. A summer day, after school ended for the year, created for picnics and the usually placid waters of Gardner’s Lake, east of Machias in far Washington County. They gathered from Ridge, Split Hill, McCurdy, and Straight Bay, rural schools all, with teachers and some parents and friends.
