Lake Boon History Walk October 19—new shorter walk option

The Lake Boon History Walk will take place on Saturday, Oct 19th 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 bring neighbors and friends to enjoy crisp air and fall colors during the 5-mile stroll or power walk around the lake. This 32nd annual event, previously known as the Lake Boon Walkathon, encourages 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.

Shorter Walk option: For those unable do the full 5-mile circumnavigation, we will have an on-call driver available to rescue anyone with tired feet and get them back to the starting point (or home if on the way).  Just bring your cell phone and get our driver’s phone number at the start.
