The dcptii of the lake is con:rolled by a gate and Mr. Baummer keeps the winter depth at a maximum of four feet In order to be safe to hold crowds the lake must freeze to five inches. Mr. Baummer ilway.s tests the safety of tho ice icforo allowing skating. Mr. Baummer said that children of .two yours of ;ige are often scon • kating at Ihe rink. He didn't say how old the oldest skaters were, >ut said their ages went way up. "nstruclors are available for f.hi> tho average maxjmum depth at six feet and provides shallow spots for children. Mr. Baummer said that-the children today arc careful of when they should go into the water after a snack. He said youngsters often tell him when they have eaten ant jsk if it is safe to go swimming.

In operating a skating i-lnk Mr Baummer is fulfilling a childhood wiah. When he was but two years old his father moved, his family {from School street to the farm or, I field street where Mr, Baummer now lives. Near the farm was the three acre lake f«d by springs. In Mr. Baummer's childhood the lake was I private property and there was no place for N'augatuck children to skate In tho winter or swim in the summer. And it was the .childhood wish of Mr, Bnummer to own this very tyikc so oil could enjoy it. Many years, over a dccado of years, were to pass but that wish finally c.ime true. Before his wish came true,- however, he assisted his late brothel- Charles, Jr., In opening, 1921, n rink known as the Field street •ink. The skating area was formed by clamming a swamp a few miles away from the present rink.
