Community Center hosts annual yard sale at the Yellow Daisy
Hello, Snow Lakers and especially you crappie fishermen! I have seen so many of you on the lake recently, so I know you are really having a great time catching those “slab crappie” and good eating bass! The dogwoods are in full bloom and the crappie are hungry!
Danny R. reported catching some nice ones last week and even caught a three-pound striped bass. A striped bass?! In Snow Lake?! Who knew there were any striped bass in Snow Lake?
Well, Danny researched the matter and found that a resident had put some in a few years back. Striped bass are fun to catch, but according to hubby they are also “some pretty good eating.”
Don T. came around with a nice stringer of crappie and Clay took some pictures. It was a stringer-full to be proud of! Last fall Don caught a giant bass that weighed at least ten pounds! Sure, there are a lot of smaller fish in the lake; but if you keep trying and moving around, you’ll find those “slab crappie”.
While the dogwoods are blooming it seems that the men can be found out on the lake, while the ladies are working in their yards. By next week we will be disposing of those messy squiggles from the trees and then on to grass cutting time. Have you noticed that the good Lord usually washes off those dusty squiggles from the trees just about every year with a strong rain and winds? I hope that’s in His plans this year.
After a fun-filled weekend camping out at Sardis, Mayor Pierpont presided over the town meeting Monday night. Some important issues were discussed at the April town meeting, including the results from the ERB inspection tour. Michael Peeler, the newly hired maintenance supervisor, and his wife Terry were introduced to the town while attending their first meeting. Welcome aboard, Mike.
The Community Center is having their annual yard sale this Saturday, April 7 at The Yellow Daisy in Ashland starting at 7 a.m. I heard that Joanne’s garage was overflowing with items, so be there early for the best selections.
Official countdown is now nine months for the lowering of the lake for dock repairs, bulkhead repairs and new construction of water-related projects, so make your plans now and consult with a contractor early if you will need any help. The water will be lowered next January for only a few weeks to enable you to carry out your plans, so be ready.
Ground preparation for the start of construction for Snow Lake’s newest family fun project has begun. Approximately 1,200 square feet was bulldozed last week for the “miniature golf course!” Trees were felled and underbrush was eliminated in preparation for the course to be built, with hopefully, nine holes. We are excited that we will soon have a wonderful family recreation center which already includes a walking trail and tennis court.
Remember, this can’t be completed without your donations. This is what our residents requested, so please give what money you can afford to give so we can complete nine holes. You know you’ll use it, and have great fun with your family while doing so, plus it’s great exercise.
Pat Tims is improving during her stay at St. Francis Hospital. Mama Beck is also improving from her stroke. Larry and Mary Jane are with her father in Ohio this week, and asked that we pray for him while he adjusts to his new home. Our son, Joseph has left the dangerous oil platforms in Iraq safely and will be home on Thursday in time to worship on Easter morning, and hopefully in time to witness the birth of his son Logan. That makes four baby boys for us in less than two years and nine grandchildren within ten years; what a blessing. Never known Hubby to miss fishing while the dogwoods bloom, but I believe he is having more fun building a playroom and baby-proofing the decks for his grandsons.
Please continue to call or e-mail me if you have anything newsworthy that you would like to see in print. Also, if you have anything you would like to see added to the Snow Lake website call Stephanie. If you are interested in selling a canoe, call 224-4244.
I wish everyone an Easter day filled with blessings for their family and loved ones. My family and I especially want to thank those who kept our son Joseph in their prayers while he was in harm’s way. Pray for all the others who are across the globe, risking their lives for our safety, that they may also return home safely to their families.
