Sue Houle, Townhouse Pond

Sue fell in love with the Ponds when her family rented cottages when she was a youngster. She became TPPA secretary at the annual picnic in 2018 after former board members told her, “don’t worry it will be easy”. She decided to do it anyway since she was impressed with the dedication this group had to keep the Ponds clean for swimmers and boaters. After retiring from VNA/Hospice nursing she was happy to volunteer with a group who had a mission she believed in. In addition to her work as secretary, she and her husband Ken continue to volunteer as “weed watchers”. In their spare time they take great enjoyment watching their very active grandkids in school and athletic activities.


Rich Egan, Rocky Point

Rich has been a summer resident of Milton all of his 70 plus years, and his ancestors have been coming here for over 120 years. His extended family that enjoy spending time at the Milton Three Ponds now number 49 and is growing.  He has been involved with the TPPA for over sixteen years, the first ten as a weed watcher and more recently as the volunteer weed watch coordinator. Since his retirement from banking Rich has enjoyed spending considerably more time at the lake in season. He is also a retired Naval Reservist (24 years) and Vietnam Vet.  When not engaged with friends, relatives, or his granddaughter, Rich enjoys swimming, water skiing, kayaking, cycling and pickleball.


Jeff Knowlton, Townhouse Pond

Jeff and his wife Jane have been on the ponds since 2007 and full time residents since 2016.  He has 2 grown children and 3 grandsons all living in NH.  Jeff retired from Liberty Mutual in 2019 where he worked for 34 years in Information Technology.   He joined the board in 2021 and took on the role of Boat Inspection Coordinator as a way to try and help protect the water quality of the ponds.  Jeff very much enjoys boating on the ponds with his family and playing golf with fellow retirees.  He also enjoys shoreline fishing while wintering in Florida.
