Miniature golf committee seeks contributions from community
Everyone loves spring, but oh, those March winds.
It seems everyone has been complaining that the wind has been a nuisance for those of us who want to fish, go boating and especially for those who want to work in their yard. If you will rake your leaves into a pile and burn them later when it’s not so windy, it will be much better than taking a chance on burning them on a windy day, possibly starting a fire that could easily get out of control.
The community of Lamar had a huge grass fire recently that required the help of several area fire departments. Just a reminder; we are surrounded by a national forest and we need to be extra careful and have a water source nearby when burning.
The big monthly breakfast was well attended on beautiful St. Patrick’s Day. The community center was so cute with all the green decorations Renee provided. A few Snow Lakers who forgot to wear green had to wear one of the green hats from the decorations to prevent the leprechauns from pinching them. We all look forward to Renee’s decorations for the Easter holiday.
After breakfast, the crowd attended the property owners board of directors meeting for March. At the meeting, Scelette demonstrated putting procedures using Don and Dixie as “pros” to announce the drive for the planned miniature golf course to be erected next to the existing tennis court. A few years ago, a survey was sent out to all residents of Snow Lake asking for their preferences for sporting activities other than boating and fishing. The result was that tennis was their first choice, followed by miniature golf.
The committee for the miniature golf course had their first meeting at the site and they are moving very quickly in order to solicit the donations needed to construct the course for summer entertainment. One of our new weekenders was quickly asked to be on the committee after commenting that he was looking forward to teaching his two small children how to play golf at Snow Lake. Also, for us retired folks, we’re going to have a ball playing golf with our grandchildren. A few residents are hoping that nightlights and tournaments with friends and neighbors might be in the future plans.
The miniature golf committee is still looking for contributions from Snow Lakers for the course. They have already received several pledges of approximately one-third of the necessary funds to construct the course, and we need your help (and money) to complete the undertaking.
If you are a weekender and have turned off your water at the road for the winter, monitor your water lines when you turn your water back on. Sometimes small amounts of water can settle in the lines and burst a pipe in your home or on your property.
Potluck will be this Saturday, at 6:30. At last month’s dinner there was a large crowd and the food was fabulous.
You don’t have to bring a gourmet dish, just something simple, if you wish. After potluck there will be another planning meeting for the July 4 fireworks. I will report the results next week.
I have not heard of anyone who is sick this week; so we are all so blessed! Mama Beck is still improving from a mild stroke. Pray for the sick, the elderly, our soldiers, and especially for peace in this world.
Contact me if you have anything newsworthy.
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
