Lake will be lowered for repairs
Where are all of our feathered friends? Before Hubby and I left for our vacation, I heard that our geese were visiting in our local farmers’ fields; but they were expected back to the lake this fall.
While on vacation in Canada and Maine last month, the local news agencies were reporting about the large amount of Canadian geese in their areas, also. The problem was so bad in several areas that a few scheduled football games and other sporting events had to be moved to other fields, due to large amounts of goose poop deposited on the fields. Maybe global warming has welcomed our friends back home to Canada.
Snow Lakers, you still have a few more days to contribute your donations to the community center garage sale that will be held this Saturday morning beginning at 7 a.m. at The Lazy Daisy in Ashland. This important event is being held to raise necessary funds to finance the operation of our much loved community center; the heart of our little town. Call Emily Koen at 224-8707 and she will make arrangements for your items to be picked up.
It’s a good time to clear out some clutter in your home in time for the holidays. Emily gives a tremendous amount of her time and energy maintaining our community center. To keep this large building as clean and organized as she does is not an easy task. Our community is very grateful to Emily Koen.
Mayor Pierpont reports that Carolyn Walls, our deputy town clerk, is doing a fantastic job in the town office. Hopefully, a fully qualified town clerk will be hired in the near future, but until then, Carolyn and a few faithful volunteers will see that the job is done properly.
Our mayor is also proud to report that Billy Briggs, our maintenance supervisor, has passed the test to qualify him as a certified water apprentice. Billy will work under a certified water operator for one year, and then he will be qualified to also hold the title of certified water operator. Congratulations, Billy.
Members of the landscape Committee called this week and asked if I would pass along the following message to Snow Lakers: “It has been a very dry year for flowers and trees and it shows in the flower beds. An independent contractor was hired to clean the beds and they look marvelous. We are now making plans for 2008, but we need to reorganize and we need your help. So much needs to be addressed, but there is not enough space. We will be in touch with you to make plans in early spring. If you have any questions please call Jane Edwards.”
The Big Monthly Breakfast will be held next Saturday, October 20 from 7-9 a.m. in the community center. Bring your friends and family for a huge, delicious breakfast. Following breakfast, join your neighbors at the corporation meeting at 9 a.m. These meetings are very important and informative for all Snow Lakers. Mark your calendar.
Potluck will be held the following Saturday evening, October 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the community center. Bring a simple dish or a fancy dish, but most importantly, come and join your friends and neighbors for some delicious food. These fun and friendly functions are getting bigger and better every month. Sadly, Hubby and I missed the last feast, but we heard that the community center was filled with old friends, new friends, delicious food and lots of laughter.
Countdown: Only three months left until the lake is lowered for just a couple of weeks to repair, replace or build your boak docks or boathouses. If you have work that needs to be done be sure to make plans, maintain a qualified contractor, and get your supplies ordered because the time frame is short.
There are some concerns among Snow Lakers about the condition of several boat docks, boathouses and pontoon boats, being dangerous or an eyesore to our beautiful lake. If for any reason you are not able to remove your old, sinking pontoon boat from the lake, please call Pat at the corporate office and your friends and neighbors will be glad to help you. email@example.com
