Lost and Found Items
The Water Carnival sign that was hung at the Honey Pot Hill Orchard sign, corner of Sudbury, Whitman and Boon Roads has been missing for the last two weeks.
It was hand crafted and painted and the Lake Boon Association would love to have it returned.
Also missing for a number of months from Pat Sorn’s waterfront is a red Coleman canoe with aluminum structural tubing inside.
Finally a large black & white float was found and is now tied up at the Police boat dock in the first basin.
