Snow Lake News
Call corporation if strangers seen boating
Wow! The flowerbeds at the entrances and also in the town hall area look so neat and beautiful. It’s a pleasure to drive by and look at them once again. The landscape committee had been on a touch and go basis for quite a while; but it’s back in full swing again. Now when we can get some fresh paint and letters on the signs, it will complete our beautiful entrances. Several folks in our community have volunteered to take this job on in the near future and we are looking forward to this as well.
The town is always in need of volunteers. Of the hundreds who live here, only a few devoted volunteers do the tremendous job of maintaining this town and lake, and most have been doing it for many years. As usual, we do receive a few complaints, but as usual, these complainers have never volunteered to help remedy their complaints.
Have you seen the new sign on Highway 4, saying we are now a “Firewise Community”? The first in the great state of Mississippi, I might add! We all are proud of this accomplishment. A few volunteers, especially C.Y. Graves and Mayor Pierpont, worked long and hard to qualify our town as “firewise”. This designation gets us in line for certain grants and favors from the Mississippi State Forestry Commission that we heretofore were not eligible for. We owe a lot of thanks to C.Y. and Laurie.
Good fishing seems to be holding up for those brave enough to fight the elements, such as Danny who is seen out most mornings, rain or shine, pulling in the big ones. Continued good luck to Danny, one of the stalwarts of fishing on Snow Lake, and to all the other devoted fishermen who brave the elements in this kind of weather to prove that Snow Lake is a worthy fishing spot for members of this community.
A few strangers were spotted putting their small boats on the lake last weekend. This problem is ongoing and the corporation board is addressing it regularly. If you see this being done, please call the corporation off with identifying information on the vehicles.
This Saturday evening at 6:30, come and share a wonderful evening and some fabulous food with your friends and neighbors at the monthly potluck dinner. These functions are getting bigger every month, with old friends gathering for friendship and introducing themselves to new friends.
The November town meeting will be held on Monday, November 5 at 7 p.m. Everyone needs to attend these important meetings. Mark your calendar.
On a very sad note, Mama Beck passed last Wednesday after a long illness. She was the bright spot in all of the town gatherings and will be remembered fondly by all who had the good fortune to come in contact with “Ma Beck.” Everyone looked forward to celebrating her 100th birthday, but the Lord called her home. She will be missed greatly by her daughter Sue Graves and her loving family and all Snow Lakers.
Joe Salling had renal surgery last week and is now home and recuperating quite well after several days in the Methodist Germantown Hospital. He sends his appreciation to all his friends who remembered him and wished him a speedy recovery.
All is well at Snow Lake, and remember to keep your boats turned over as well as any other objects that can hold water. A few residents have left their boats uncovered and upright, especially on the west side off Black Oak. The West Nile Virus is still in the area and will be until we have the first freeze.
E-mail me if you have anything that you would like to be addressed in the paper. See you at potluck and have a wonderful week! firstname.lastname@example.org
