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 lbaseptic@gmail.com 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.

A floating chair like this but with slightly different colors was lost in last Sunday’s windstorm in the second basin. If found, please contact
Andreas Lymberopoulos at  andreas.lymberopoulos@gmail.com.


Note: The boxes reported missing have been found. We are glad to have this resolved without loss to a neighbor.

Also missing: On Tuesday, September 12, two boxes and a bag were removed from the front of a home at 42 Pine Point Road. The boxes belong to Sean Theall. They were a banana box and a small cardboard box, and the bag was a large white one from Home Goods.

The banana box was had clothes and pictures inside and some kitchen knives, a personalized bruins jersey, a white poets shirt, winter gloves, personal photos, scarves and a glassware set. 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.

There is a $25 reward for the return of all these items.

The boxes disappeared around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Sean would appreciate whoever took them to return them ASAP.
