Due to today’s weather, the Lake Boon History Tour will be abbreviated, with all the historical and environmental posters displayed at the Pine Bluffs pavilion. The event starts at 11:30, and runs until folks leave, probably around 1 p.m. or so.
Come on out to greet your neighbors and see photos of the historical sites while sipping hot cider and tasting apples (compliments of Honey Pot Hill) under the pavilion roof. Lake Boon t-shirts will be available for purchase.
This Great Canadian jon boat with “J Baker” stenciled on the aft seat was found this morning floating in the second basin. It is now on shore at 25 Worcester Ave. There isn’t a J Baker on the Lake Boon mailing list, so that may be the name of a previous owner. Leave a comment below if it’s yours and help is needed to get it back home.

The annual Lake Boon History Walk takes place Saturday, October 13th starting at the Stow Pine Bluffs/Town Beach on Sudbury Road. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. with step-off at noon. The Lake Boon Association invites you to bring neighbors and friends to enjoy crisp air and fall colors during the 5-mile stroll or power walk around the lake. This 31st annual event was previously known as the Lake Boon Walkathon but we’re encouraging Boonies and friends to take their time to appreciate the area’s history and environment as well as each other.
The tour includes over two dozen historical posters with old photos and fascinating background placed at various sites around the lake, including two train stops, steam and gasoline-powered ferries, a 21-room hotel and much more. Additional 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 T-shirts and bags will be available for purchase at the start to wear or for holiday gifts.
Put on your comfortable walking shoes, wear bright clothing for safety and come on down!
