Snow Lake News
Monthly breakfast and potluck rescheduled for Saturday
A great big “Thank You” goes out to the Thomas family, Kim, Ray and Jerry of Lamar for their gift to Snow Lakers of a float for last week’s Christmas parade. Their unselfish contribution is greatly appreciated and we welcome their efforts. Without their work in putting together a float at just about the last minute, Snow Lake wouldn’t have had representation in the parade. They are members of our volunteer fire department. Thanks, again Thomas family!
I have seen several fishermen out on the lake during this warm weather, but all have said that the fishing has been poor. Do you think they enjoy catching fish as much as they enjoy getting out on the lake in mid-December?
Due to Christmas scheduling, the Big Monthly Breakfast, monthly corporate meeting and Pot Luck Dinner will be held this Saturday, December 15. Remember, breakfast starts at 7 a.m. in the community center and is served until 9 a.m. when you can take a short walk over to the corp.’s office on the other side of the parking lot and enjoy the monthly meeting of the board of directors. Plan to attend so you’ll be informed as to what is going on at your lake. Meetings usually last less than an hour and you will have an opportunity to participate in the informal discussions subsequent to the close of the meeting. If you have any questions regarding the lowering of the lake, this is the meeting to attend.
Pot luck is at 6:30 p.m. and is well worth attending. Ham is on the agenda, so bring a dish that goes well with this delicious holiday main course. Everyone is looking forward to the skit Jim and Kay Son will put on.
How about this weather? Do you believe it? Records are being set daily for highs. I hope the leaves don’t start blooming on the oak trees in our yard, though. We just got through with the annual raking of the leaves and don’t really want to go through that again!
The lights that adorn the lakeside are certainly beautiful this year. It seems that some of our residents have really worked hard this year to entertain us. Calvin fixed up his pontoon like a giant Christmas tree floating on the sparkling waters as he circles the lake on good nights. It is really something to see at night; as good as the Disneyland Christmas floats. As he passed our house last week we heard some geese honking at the big green floating tree, I wonder if they were enjoying it as much as the other Snow Lakers. Thanks for the treat, Calvin.
The Shears and the Eldridges’ lights are worth a trip out on the lake; they are just beautiful as they reflect on the lake. Hubby and I have been sitting out on the deck during the warm evenings enjoying Bob’s hard work while also enjoying the displays in the distance. On Friday night there sure were a lot of folks having fun down on the lake while they also enjoyed the lights. Hubby and I were early for the town meeting last week, so we went up and parked beside the tennis court to enjoy the light display on the road side of the Eldridge’s house, which is also outstanding. If you want to see another wonderful display, drive by Jason and Renee’s house on Dogwood where you will be entertained by their creative display. I am sure we will all be delighted by Renee’s decorations in the clubhouse when we attend the breakfast and potluck. Don’t miss it.
Martha seems to be much better after her broken ankle fiasco. I know she will stroll much more carefully up and down the hill to the street for mail, etc. Two broken ankles are just about too much! Maybe it was three…Oh yes, Ray has one to his credit, as well. It makes all of us who live down a hill lakeside “super conscientious” about that walk! We are surely not as young and spry as we once were, so we need to take things more slowly at this stage in life.
Let me know if there is anyone or anything that you would like to have mentioned in this column. After all, it is your column and I need news about our residents to report.
Have a wonderful week and if you get the opportunity, give your neighbor who might need help a hand; you’ll feel better for it! email@example.com.
