Reading the recent article on the removal of Edwards Dam, I was flooded with wonderful memories (“On 20-year anniversary of Edwards Dam removal, Kennebec River brimming with life,” June 30).

Seeing the picture of John Charest made me smile. I was so fortunate to know John when I worked for the city of Augusta. He was an interesting and funny man with an incredible work ethic.

Thank you for the celebratory article.
