Fireworks, boat parade on go
The July 4th holiday season is fast approaching and hopefully all Snow Lakers will decorate their property for this special holiday. During this wartime, we especially need to show our strong support for our wonderful country.
It’s just a little more than a week until Snow Lakers and their families will be entertained by Chief Farmer’s spectacular display of fireworks beginning at 9 p.m. on June 30. Thanks to all of you Snow Lakers who donated your time and money for this community event; without your support, it would be a very dark holiday.
The much anticipated boat parade will also be held this year, shortly before the fireworks. Plan on decorating your fishing boat, pontoon boat or anything that floats and join everyone at the community center boat ramp at 7 p.m. for a fun trip around the lake. The participants are once again looking forward to this fun event and some go to great time and expense decorating their boats, so Snow Lakers show them your support by going outside as the parade passes your home. This year there will not be any trophies, just plain fun, but I have been told that if there is a big turnout this year, there will again be judges and trophies next year.
For those who like fifties music and moonlight cruises, meet us at the community boat dock on Friday, June 29 at 8 p.m. We’ll cruise the lake under the full moon and stars while listening to the great music of the fifties. Later, we will tie up the boats in the middle of the lake for some great friendship time. Come join us, you’ll have a great time. No need to have a boat, there is always plenty of room on the pontoon boats. See you at 8 at the community dock.
Good news for those of you who like to read The Commercial Appeal. A paper rack is now located at town hall where you may purchase a paper seven days a week..
Kay Word and her husband bought a weekend cottage during the development of the lake. They later retired on the west side of the lake where Kay maintains a beautiful home and yard. Kay informed me that she is composing a Snow Lake scrapbook from information and articles she has saved during her many years at the lake. Hopefully, Kay will make arrangements to display this wonderful book at special gatherings for all of us to enjoy.
Two of Carl Pruitt’s sons, Josiah and Jason, participated and placed in the Zion Bank Ogden marathon, in Ogden Utah. Congratulations, guys.
SFC James Light and his family are visiting his mother, Sara Stone, at Snow Lake this week. Jimmy has been out of the country in Germany and Iraq for the last four years and is proudly welcomed back by his family as well as this community. Thanks to Jimmy and all of our brave troops who have served in this action far from home.
The regular monthly meeting of the Snow Lake Property Owner’s Corp. was held this past Saturday, the 16th of June. The board of directors elected the following officers to serve for the next year until the annual election in June of 2008. These officers are: C.Y. Graves, president; Edward Koen, vice-president; Buford Fuller, treasurer; and Joe Salling, secretary. Congratulations to these directors and much appreciation for the wonderful job that all of the board members are doing! You are a great team.
The miniature golf course is coming right along with a few volunteers pouring concrete for three course holes this past week. The center of the course will be poured this coming week, which consists of a walkway to a center area to be equipped with water and a covered, seating area for golfers and spectators to relax. This will enable you to enjoy this “oasis” to rest up in and cool off during “serious” tournaments.
Fishing has picked up quite well with good catches of bream, plus fishermen are also reporting catching a few “nice” bass. Take advantage of this good bream fishing now that they have started bedding up, plus they give a more than average fight when hooked. Try your luck at fly-fishing; it is the most exciting of any type of angling when you can see them strike at your bug or fly and take off for deep water with it. It takes special equipment, but it’s well worth it! These guys really don’t want to leave the lake and will give you all the fun and fight you want! I tried fly-fishing once in Colorado and hopefully I will be able to do it again one day. Remember to keep all your catch and dispose of all your smaller fish. According to the MS Game and Fish, we must dispose of our smaller catches in order for our larger fish to grow. Putting small fish under your flowerbeds, especially rose bushes and tomatoes, will do wonders for the plants.
This Saturday, June 23 at 6:30, Snow Lakers will serve the best potluck in the county at our community center. Come for the fun, come for the friendship, come to meet new friends, but just come. You’ll be glad you did.
The most severe forms of the West Nile virus continue to spread in Mississippi. This form affects the nervous system and can lead to paralysis, coma or death. Please check your property for the smallest amounts of water where a mosquito can lay eggs. Several homeowners have pulled their boats up on the grass and they have been holding water for several weeks. If you do not cover your boat or turn it over, you could receive an ERB violation letter and possibly face a court fine. Homeowners: also check your boats under your boathouses for they are also capable of holding stagnant water. For those living on low-lying lots, please spray your property regularly. The town is spraying twice a week, but we homeowners need to do our part in preventing this deadly disease from spreading in our community.
Mike Westmoreland is ill and Mary Lorenzo is now at Christopher’s. Keep them in your prayers.
