Lake Boon gear for sale at the Walkathon and afterwards

Lake Boon logo clothing and historical books will be for sale before the Walkathon on Saturday, October 15, 11:00-11:45 AM. Come early for the best selection as colors and sizes are limited. Sweatshirts are in particularly short supply.

We all think tote bags could make great gift bags for this Christmas! New items are long sleeved dark navy “T’s” and  XXL T-shirts (which cost a bit more that the standard sizes.)

If you can’t make it to the Walkathon watch for an announcement of another Lake Boon sale in November, date, time and place TBA.

Lake Boon Walkathon is October 15

Join neighbors and invite friends to the annual Lake Boon Walkathon, held Saturday, October 15. Register beginning at 11:30 for a noon step-off. Come enjoy the crisp air and fall colors during a 5-mile stroll or power walk around the lake.

New this year are 20 enhanced historical note signs including photos of cottages, clubs, and other buildings that used to stand at various sites around the lake. You’ll be amazed! Additional new signs provide reminders of environmental issues that affect our lake and what we can do to protect it.

Lake Boon T-shirts, sweatshirts and bags will be available for purchase during the registration period. Get an early start on your holiday gifts.
Put on your comfortable walking shoes and come on down!

Sign up by October 9 for fall septic pumping program

Once again, the Lake Boon Association is sponsoring a discount septic pumping program this fall. The program will run beginning the week of October 17th-21st. Deadline for sign up is Sunday October 9th.

Casaceli Trucking will be doing the pumping once again and pricing will be $.18 per gallon resulting in a savings of approximately 25%. Hudson has enacted a $10.00 fee for the pump reports that are required by the State to be sent in. Therefore, Hudson residents will have an extra single $10.00 fee per address.

Due to the growing popularity of the program this pumping will be available only to the first 40 residents to respond.

To register please email Brenda Mascari at with your name, address and phone number, or call Dave Siewierski at 978-562-2203. Those who have already made a request to Dave Gray, Dave Siewierski, or directly with Brenda Mascari have been registered. The program is open to anyone living within the Lake Boon watershed or within a mile of the lake.

Since the inception of this program hundreds of tanks have been pumped at the discount price, saving money for individual homeowners while preserving property values and helping reduce weed growth in the lake. The more frequently a system is pumped (recommendation every 1 – 2 years depending on family size), the longer it will last and work well. The LBA sponsors this program spring and fall each year, and so far Rich Casaceli continues to give us a lower price than other area companies for an excellent job!

Please spread the word to your neighbors on Lake Boon so we can continue to do everything we can to clean up the lake and keep our septic systems running well.

Possibly lost duck?

What appears to be a domesticated duck has been observed on the lake over the last several months. He is not likely to make it through the winter as he appears not to be able to fly. He attempts to flock with several young mallards. It is hoped his owner will claim him and take him safely home. He’s as cute as a button.

The Lake resident who observed the duck may be able to help locate him again. Leave a comment if he (or she) is yours.

In the cardboard box there were  shirts, cd’s and some DVDS. The bag contained a silverware organizier, coasters, silverware, soap dispensers, and dish towels. There was writing on the boxes: one said pictures and clothes box had clothes in it.
