Lake Boon History Walk takes place October 13

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!
