The Lake Boon Commission will meet on Tuesday, July 5, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Building, 380 Great Road (Route 117), Stow.
This meeting will evaluate applicants for the open position of Lake Boon Commissioner from Stow and develop a recommendation to the Stow Board of Selectmen for that position. The Commission now consists of Conray Wharff from Hudson, chair and Theresa O’Riorden from Stow. The third position was held by Lee Heron of Stow, whose term expires the end of the month. He is not “re-upping” in order to become the primary police patrol officer on the lake, leaving the position vacant. There are four applicants for the position.
Also on the agenda:
Minutes from last meeting
End of year bills
This West Marine inflatable boat with oars drifted to the dock at 16 Pine Point Road near the north end of the first basin. It also contained a sharp bow saw which is not such a good idea in an inflatable and perhaps the reason the starboard side is flat! The resident would like it removed asap. If it’s yours, and you need help retrieving it, contact the LBA for more info.
Mouse the cat is missing from home at 34 Pine Point Road in Stow. He is a black and white cat and very friendly. If you see him please call 978-821-1379.
A reminder to people who pump from the lake to water lawns and gardens that the no-irrigation rule is still in effect following the June 13 booster herbicide treatment in basins 3 and 4, Monahan’s cove and Hale Road cove.
There are two history talks being given in our area this week—unfortunately at exactly the same time—a tough choice! Fortunately, it is likely these will become available on local access TV.

The History of Hudson’s Main Street
Wednesday, June 22nd, 7 p.m.
Hudson Senior Center, next to the Post Office on Church Street
This talk will focus on the area of Main Street from the Rotary to about Broad Street
Richard is an informative and engaging speaker with excellent photos so you can expect standing room only if you arrive late.
