Snow Lake News
Sue Shears

Garage sale set for Saturday

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. How do you like this cool spring weather? Isn’t it great!

You know that Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day to spend with your mother and family. I must be the luckiest mother on Snow Lake - I have received a Mother’s Day gift from my husband - and can you believe I got a screwdriver set, two pairs of garden gloves, and a bag of marbles to replace the ones I lost. But at least he remembered.

Mike Moseley on Lake Shore Drive had surgery last week in Pittsburg. He had an appointment with the doctor Tuesday, and hopefully he is on his way home. Our prayers are with you. I just heard this week that Helen Shelby, who lived on Snow Lake Drive for six years before moving, passed away. She has a son Richard who is a professor at the University of Auburn, also another son David who lives in Florida, and three grandchildren. We extend our sympathy to the Shelby family.

If you know of anyone who is sick or needs help please call Sue Wooley Graves, 224-3264. If you know of someone I have missed, please call me at 224-3913.

Don’t forget! Plan to attend the Snow Lake Volunteer Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary Garage Sale on May 7, 8 a.m. at the Ashland Discount Outlet on Hwy. 4. We have a large variety of merchandise to choose from and if you still have something to donate, you can take them directly to the store or call me at 224-3913. Also, on the same day we will have a bake sale at Webster’s Grocery beginning at 8 am.

Someone will call asking for your donation of a cake - if no one calls, just call Jane Edwards, 224-3435, and tell her you want to make one. We have been separating and pricing items for the sale, and we have “so many” nice clothes. I know we have something just your size. Don’t forget to buy your cookbook at Ashland Outlet or from Frances Simpson.

If you would like to help please call 224-3913.

The Bluegrass Committee is getting in full swing for our celebration on June 25. We have three bluegrass bands - Southern Strangers, Heartland Band, Hatchie Bottom Boys and Little Country. Kay Bain from Tupelo will also be here. More details will follow. However, if you are a crafter and want to reserve a booth, please call me at 662-224-3913, Laurie Pierpont 224-0065. We will have members of the committee contacting persons and businesses for advertisements. I will be calling for volunteers to work the concessions, community center’s barbecue meals, greeters, boat parade and boat rides, parking, and etc. As I said before, you can’t hide - I will find you!

There are a lot of things going on around Snow Lake. We need volunteers for several committees. Won’t you call us at 224-3050? We are trying to form a Neighborhood Watch Program and we need volunteers.

We are looking for persons to check on the neighbors around them via phone or stopping by. They will be called ‘Block Captains.’ The next meeting will be after the Town Meeting on May 5. The Town Meeting will be at 7 pm.

Remember: put your ‘911’ numbers on your house! Put your lot numbers on your boats and gas cans! Check the size of your garbage can!

Coming Events:
Thursday, May 5 - 7 p.m. Town Meeting followed by Neighborhood Watch Meeting

Saturday, May 7 - 8 Garage Sale and Bake Sale

Saturday, May 21 - 7 - 9 a.m. Breakfast followed by Corporation Meeting at 9 a.m.

Saturday, May 28 - 6:30 Potluck

Remember, guests are always welcome to come to any of our events.

Also, remember, the Community Center is available for rental for a party, etc; just contact Emily Koen 224-8707. We have several new residents on the lake that we have not met. I would like to invite them to come to the Potluck on May 28 and be our guest. You do not need to bring anything but yourself.

Our Quote. From the booklet “Gentle Thoughts” “What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. They are but trifles, to be sure, but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”

Have a good week, and hope to see you next week.
