The Holidays are Here! November 21
Dear Members, Neighbors, and Lake Lovers:
Here are a few tidbits from around the Lake.
Lake Water Level: In the October 28 Gazette, we noted that the Town was taking a more gradual approach to lake drawdown. Here’s some information from the State on why that is important to lake ecology.
Lakes and Salt: Also on October 28, we reported on the impact of salt on lakes. Here’s a bit more info from the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment.
Ice Out Lottery: The IOL will open for ticket purchases on December 1. Tickets are still priced at $10 and the lottery is again a 50:50 split. The winner (s) of the 2023 Lottery will share the proceeds with the Spofford Lake Association. For details and to purchase tickets, visit our Lottery page beginning on December 1.
SLA Store: With non-expedited shipping time of a couple of weeks, now is the time to order a few SLW branded items from the Store. T-shirts and water bottles all around!
Amazon Smile: Speaking of shopping, many thanks to the members and friends who support the SLA through the Amazon Smile program. The October donation of nearly $50 was made to the SLA. Let’s see if we can’t grow that number to $100 next quarter. To achieve that, we’d appreciate your designating the Spofford Lake Association as your charity on Smile.Amazon.com. To do so, just follow the simple steps on our website. Thanks.
Best wishes to you and your family for a very Happy Thanksgiving from the Spofford Lake Association. 🦃
