The next Lake Boon Commission meeting will be held at the Stow Town Building, 380 Great Road, Stow, on Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00 p.m.
The fall Lake Boon drawdown will begin with the removal of the first board at the outfall on Oct 12th or soon thereafter. Boats that need to be moved over shallow water to get them out for the winter should take this into account. The level will go down slowly over the next few weeks, approximately 12 inches by mid-November.
Here are two upcoming events you may be interested in:
Historic Preservation Forum
Wednesday, Oct 11, 2017, 7-9 pm at the Pompositticut Community Center,
509 Great Road (Route 117), Stow
Are you interested in learning how to preserve the character of our historic neighborhoods? If so, please come to this forum, sponsored by the Town of Stow and the Gleasondale Neighborhood Area Subcommittee. It is open to all residents of Stow, as well as residents of other towns who want to learn about options for preserving the asset that make our communities special.
Chris Skelly of the Massachusetts Historical Commission will lead an introductory discussion of tools and strategies for historic preservation and for preserving neighborhood character. Questions will be taken throughout the discussion.
RSVPs are encouraged but definitely not required. To RSVP or for more information please contact Rosemary Monahan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Lake Boon Walkathon
Saturday, Oct 14th starting at the Stow Pine Bluffs Town Beach on Sudbury Road. Registration begins at 11:30 am with step off at noon.
The Lake Boon Association invites you to join your neighbors and invite friends to enjoy this 30th annual event featuring crisp air and fall colors during the 5-mile stroll or power walk around the lake.
We have new enhanced historical signs that include photos of what used to be at various sites around the lake, including two train stops, steam and gasoline-powered ferries, a 21-room hotel and much more. Additional new signs provide reminders of environmental issues that affect the lake and what we can do to protect it. A $5.00 donation is requested.
Lake Boon shirts will be available for purchase at the start and finish. Put on your comfortable walking shoes and come on down!
