Snow Lake News
Miniature golf course open; contributions needed
Hello, Snow Lakers! I know you all have been enjoying this beautiful weather that we’ve been having lately. I know we have!
Along with the beautiful weather, fishermen have been unusually fortunate lately, with nice catches of bream and crappie being reported. John caught a nice string of crappie last week including a two pound, three ounce nice ‘un’! People fish all their lives and don’t catch one that large. Good going, John; I know you are proud.
Our older grandchildren had good luck off the dock this past weekend with some very nice bream. They will taste so good when we cook ’em up for the family next weekend. Also, we have been seeing Danny out most every morning real early, so I surmise that he has done well, also.
Thanks to those who have been cooperating by turning unused boats over as to not catch water for the mosquitoes to lay eggs in, that might bring the West Nile Virus to our local area. This sometimes-deadly virus is still being reported in the Mid-South. Thanks to those who have moved vehicles that are not being used on a regular basis to venues such as proper parking areas, etc.
There are still unsightly areas around that need to be cleaned up, but it sure looks better since the ERB has been on the job. It is easier to correct the discrepancies set up by the board of mayor and aldermen than to get upset.
Remember to clean up your dock areas, if you are on the lake. The ERB has been working hard to remind some of you that the nicer the properties are kept, the nicer Snow Lake will be in the future. Drive over to certain other lake communities in north Mississippi and see what could happen if we don’t take pride in our community and keep it tasteful. It doesn’t take much work, just a little cooperation. And once again, if you need help, just call the office and help will be on the way.
This is the week for the big Saturday morning breakfast of eggs, sausage, grits (that’s ground corn for you Yankees), biscuits and gravy, and of course, O. J. and coffee! Come join us for some good home cooking, conversation and getting to know your neighbors that you might not already know. After that, stroll over to the corp’s meeting hall and join in the monthly board of directors’ meeting. You’ll have the chance to give your input and ask important questions immediately following the meeting.
Next week plan on attending pot luck with your friends and neighbors. Summer is over and it’s time to settle down and enjoy the wonderful monthly dinners with your neighbors.
The monthly town meeting will be on November 5. Mark your calendars.
The miniature golf course is open and is being used. Don’t forget to enjoy it; it was built for you! We are just a little short on the finishing touches, so if you could find it in your heart to contribute just $50 or whatever you can afford, we can finish what is a beautiful, convenient course right next to the tennis court.
Pray for our troops overseas and their families with hopes for their safe return. Hubby and I received a wonderful gift last weekend; our son joined his sisters as they surprised me on my birthday. He had arrived the day before from the Middle East after a tour in Iraq. How blessed we are that our son came back from this war safely. Our hearts go out to those who were not as blessed as our family.
Our prayers go out to Stanley Bezzo and hope for God’s help for a speedy recovery. Let me know if there is anyone else out there that needs our prayers here at Snow Lake. Have a wonderful week. firstname.lastname@example.org
