Snow Lake News

Bluegrass Committee needs volunteers

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. It appears that summer is ahead of time. We have had plenty of dry weather to plant.

But, have you driven around the lake on the road, or in your boat? You won’t believe the progress Snow Lake is making in improvements, building, renovating, and landscaping. It sure makes you feel good to see the change. The trees have grown so full this year that you can hardly see the houses - but the sun still shines in on the west side of our house. Well, seasons come and go - it won’t be long before I will be trying to keep the cold air out.

I think Mike Moseley on Lake Shore Drive is back at work and Stephanie has reopened her ‘Lazy Daisy’ antique store. Tilbert Godsey had an MRI the first part of the week, so we won’t know the results for a few days. Scelette Blake also had an MRI Tuesday and she won’t know the results for a few days either. We wish you both the best of luck.

We just heard this week that Dale Croll, husband of Billie Croll, who spend their winters at Snow Lake and their summers in Michigan, had a heart attack, and will be in the hospital a few weeks. Our prayers are with them. 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 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, 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, 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!

We have several new residents on the lake whom we have not met. I would like to invite them to come to the potluck on May 28 and be our guests. You do not need to bring anything but yourselves

Our Quote. From the booklet “Gentle Thoughts”: “The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”

Have a good week.
