Community Center sponsors hamburger/hot dog supper

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. Hope all of you had some contact with your family on Mother’s day. We really had a good time at my daughter’s house.

For those of you who just read the beginning, I must start with the subject of a hamburger and hotdog dinner on Saturday, May 14 at 5:30 pm. - $6 per plate, and this includes your drink and dessert. Carryouts available. This is sponsored by the Community Center and they always appreciate your cooperation.

Mike Moseley on Lake Shore Drive is recuperating at home, from surgery in Pittsburgh. I just heard that Ann Hamer has been in the hospital, but is home now. Also, Al Hamer is home, after a long stay at the nursing home. Tilbert Godsey is having a lot of trouble with his back and is confined to his home. Juanita Roberson’s two sisters have been seriously ill for some time. T. J. Grissom’s mother is in the hospital for treatment. Joy Cocke’s father had a heart attack and is in the hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with the above people, and hope they will soon be well again.

We extend our sympathy to the John Ross family on Snow Lake Drive, whose nephew was recently killed in an automobile accident. Our prayers are with you. 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.

The Snow Lake Volunteer Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary Garage and Bake Sale last Saturday was a big success. We want to thank everyone who donated merchandise and cakes for the sale, all the ladies who organized and priced the items, Flake Farmer and his buddies who helped set up, and especially the people who took time to purchase items. A big thanks to T.J. Grissom for making up the nice signs we posted around town.

The Bluegrass Committee is meeting on a regular basis, planning our celebration on June 25. We have four bluegrass bands - Southern Strangers, Heartland Band, Hatchie Bottom Boys, Turkey Creek, 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 at 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. Start thinking about entering the boat parade; you can enter even if you prefer not to decorate. We need more participants - some people aren’t able to come to the festival, but they enjoy seeing lots of boats on the lake.

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 announced later.

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:

Saturday, May 14th, 5:30 p.m. hamburger and hotdog dinner.

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 28th and be our guests. You do not need to bring anything but yourself.

Our Quote. From the booklet “Gentle Thoughts”, “It seems we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.”

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