Beavers becoming a problem for residents at Snow Lake
Intended for last week.
Hello Snow Lakers. I hope you had a good week. We had a busy one. We got home Tuesday of last week, and the bags are still not unpacked. We visited so many local sites and interesting attractions.
I guess the most amazing one was the Rushmore Mountain, the sculpture of four presidents.
I recently heard that our Town Clerk, Janet Jones’ father has been in the hospital, but he is home now and recuperating very good. We extend our sympathy and prayers to the Blanch Harper family, Blanch has been a part-time resident for several years and supported Snow Lake in all our endevours. We also extend our sympathy and prayers to Vickie Fox , a former resident, whose nephew passed away recently. Please keep the Sallings family in your prayers. Joseph, Joe and Barbara Sallings’ son, was recently shipped to Iraq for a year’s stay. His family, a wife, a young child and another child expected soon, will be moving to Memphis while he is stationed in Iraq. We will keep the entire family in our thoughts.
This week’s news:
Hello Snow Lakers. I hope you had a good week . We had another busy one. We finally got one bag unpacked. That’s pretty good for us. I am trying to get everything we bought put away so I can start packing for my next trip. I will tell you about that next week.
If you don’t live at Snow Lake you may not know about the beaver problem. When we got back from our last trip, one or more beavers had cut down a small tree to the ground, and chewed up two flowering shurbs; so that means we had to start getting smarter than they were. We had several lengths of metal porch railings, or metal fencing, so we began to install them. The more we worked, the space we were trying to cover got longer. Now, we need to buy more fencing or we will never get done. We think they have made a home under our boat house, but we don’t know how to get to them.
I haven’t heard of anyone sick this week. I know that Junior Priest has been in the hospital, but today I wasn’t able to get in touch with anyone who could tell me how he is doing. Maybe next week I will be able to.
If you know of anyone sick or needing help please call Sue Graves, 224-3264.
The Community Center and the Ladies Fire Auxiliary bake sale was a big success. I regret we had to postpone the yard sale at Ashland Outlet due to the lack of people to work. We will reschedule it in the near future.
The fire department district annual meeting was well attended. Thanks to everyone who attended.
Remember, guests are always welcome to come to any of our events.

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