Snow Lake News
Sue Shears

Bluegrass Festival offers fun for everyone

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. Sorry, last week’s news was so skimpy - I left for vacation and forgot to send in a new article. We left June 8 for Milan, Tenn. to visit relatives - then on thru Missouri to Naperville, Ill. for a family reunion - then up through Route 66 in Illinois and Indiana to the Lake Michigan area for a day and then home again. We got home on the 15th. This story is sort of like the one about the azaelas - we stopped at so many garage sales we had to unpack the car every time we needed our luggage. Of course, I bought things I didn’t need but I will find someone who will enjoy them. However, my daughter has already given one of them back to me.

I doubt that many of you were out on the road on Monday night after 9 p.m., but I was coming from Somerville, Tenn. and looked up and saw the most beautiful moon. Most of the sky was dark with no stars and only the moon shining - it looked like a golden egg, and a dark cloud was close by and that only magnified the brightness of the moon. It cast its light behind the cloud and made a beautiful picture. I wish my camera had been with me.

I talked with Billie Croll and she said Donald was doing better and she thought they would remove the feeding tube last week. We are glad he is improving. We also hope T.J. Grissom’s mother is back at home after a stay in the hospital. 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’s last meeting was Tuesday and it appears that everything is on schedule. We are looking forward to 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. However, if you are a crafter and want to reserve a booth, please call me at 662-224-3913, Laurie Pierpont 224-0065. Thanks to all the volunteers who agreed to work the concessions, community center’s barbecue meals, greeters, boat parade and boat rides, parking, and etc. By now you probably have received your letter of thanks and your scheduled time to work. Thanks again! 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. I have forgotten to mention that we will have Rick Crum back as our master of ceremonies. Thanks Rick!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the election. We had a good turn out.

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! Boat season is here!

The Community Center is having a garage sale on October 1, so start saving your discards. All the proceeds will go to making improvements on the building and grounds. For contributions, call Emily Koen 224-8707, or Joan Martinez 224-8032.

Our Quote. From the booklet “Gentle Thoughts.” “Mirth is like a flash of lightning that breaks through a gloom or clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity.”

Have a good week.
