Snow Lake News
Forestry Commission presents community with award
Good wishes to all Snow Lakers for a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving with your family. For those of you who enjoy a nap after dinner, you can look forward to a special one, for science says that people get sleepier on Thanksgiving than any other day of the year due to the eating too much turkey and dressing. Sweet dreams.
It’s time to start seeing the Christmas lights in our little community. Hubby and I always look forward to the beautiful lights that Bob Shears displays every year. Their reflections in the sparkling lake make our holiday nights so enjoyable.
For you weekenders, it’s time to start winterizing your home after every visit in the winter. Drain your pipes, and turn off your water at the road. Better safe than to have a flooded house. Also ask your neighbors to keep an eye on your home; they won’t mind doing this for a friend.
Town meeting for December will be on December 3 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Mark your calendar and plan to attend, it will be worth the trip.
The third annual Snow Lake Christmas Boat Parade will be held on Saturday, November 24. Participants should decorate their boat (pontoon, paddle, jon boat, canoe, kayak, etc.) and meet at the Community Center dock around 3:30 p.m.; or just jump in any time. By having it a little earlier than previous years, we hope it won’t be as cold. Bring a thermos of your favorite hot beverage and celebrate the holiday season with friends and neighbors. Let’s all try to be there and participate. It’ll be fun, I promise you!
The Mississippi State Forestry Commission presented the town of Snow Lake with a plaque for the first-ever “Firewise Community” award for the state of Mississippi at our monthly property owners’ board of directors meeting this past Saturday. Mayor Laurie Pierpont was on hand to accept the award for the town of Snow Lake Shores. This is a wonderful honor and we are quite proud of our achievement! Extra chairs had to be brought in for the meeting, due to the large crowd. Keep it up!
The potluck dinner this past Saturday night was overflowing with good food, good people and good appetites. This was the best participation for potluck that I have seen so far. You could hardly find a parking space. How wonderful for so many Snow Lakers to come together for such a happy time and great food.
We finally started wearing nametags so we could identify newcomers and be identified to them. Sure makes it easier to remember names. I don’t know why we haven’t done this before. After dinner, we were entertained by a magician who baffled and amazed us with his prestidigitation (sleight of hand).
On a sad note, Martha Byrd fell and broke her leg and we wish her a speedy recovery. Also, Elizabeth Ross recently lost her uncle and we sympathize with her family. Continue to keep Stanley Bezzo and Leslie Zarnstorff in your prayers.
During this beautiful holiday season remember to keep our military in your prayers, for this is a very sad time of year for them.
Also, try to send a package to those you know who are in this terrible war.
It will be greatly appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org
