Moonlight Cruisers to cruise lake for first time Saturday
I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and celebrated it for what it was, in memory of our servicemen and women who have bravely given their lives and limbs for this great country of ours.
Hubby and I stayed at home this holiday, cooked out, and enjoyed our children and grandchildren. It used to be that Hubby and I would wonder where we were going on vacations and holidays, but now he has taken the guesswork out of travel and just wants to stay home and enjoy our beautiful lake with our family. Like friends of ours say, “Why go anywhere, you live on a lake.”
Of course, the perfect weather this Memorial Day brought many families out to the lake where they enjoyed special family time and boat rides on our beautiful lake. As expected, a few fishermen could be seen between the pontoon wakes trying to wet a hook, but few had any luck fishing. One jon boat that was carrying small children was seen traveling around the lake at top speed on Sunday, coming close to other children that were swimming. This was very dangerous, as well as life threatening, so please slow your jon boats down to the posted speed limit of 5 mph when you are out on the lake.
During the holiday weekend, several fishermen launched their boats from the gas line property on the west side, by carrying their boats to the water, or driving down to the lake in their trucks. This encroachment is absolutely against the rules of the SLPOC, so please call the corporation office if you see anyone trespassing. Boats must be launched at the launching area provided on the east side and nowhere else! Clearly, there were fishermen using our private lake that were not members of the corporation. Also, there were several reports of boats being on the lake without lot numbers posted on their boats. Please adhere to the rules. They are there for a reason.
The yearly meeting of the Snow Lake Property Corporation will be held this Saturday, June 2 at 1:30 p.m., in the community center. All residents who are in good standing with the corporation are invited to attend.
Also on June 2 there will be a full moon and the ‘Snow Lake Moonlight Cruisers’ will meet for the first time (cancelled if raining) at the community center dock at 7:45 p.m. We will cruise the lake under the full moon and stars, and then we will tie the pontoons together in the middle of the lake and listen to the music of the fifties. Everyone is invited; come and enjoy.
On Monday night, June 4, at 7 p.m. the monthly town meeting will be held at the community center with Mayor Pierpiont presiding. All residents are urged to attend. C’mon down and keep up on what is going on in your town.
The Fourth of July fireworks committee is still trying to raise money for a fireworks display on June 30 and they need the help of the community. If there is going to be great fireworks over our lake please send a contribution. Send a check, or take out an ad in the paper for your family. Make out your checks to: Snow Lake 4th of July Activity Fund, Snow Lake Corporation P.O. Box 38, Ashland 38603.
The smoke coming from fires in Georgia that blanketed our community last week should be an eye opener for us. We are surrounded by a National Forest, so we must all take precautions to prevent such a tragedy from occurring in our community. Be “firewise” and be sure to keep your grass cut; wildfires could easily happen at Snow Lake. Also remember to empty all containers that could hold water where mosquitoes can breed and spread the West Nile Virus. barb.snowlake @yahoo.com
