Time to sign up for Lake Boon septic pumping program

Once again, the Lake Boon Association is sponsoring a discount septic pumping program this Spring. The program will run beginning the week of June 1st. Deadline for sign up is Saturday May 16th.

To register please email David Siewierski at lbaseptic@gmail.com or call 978-562-2203.

The program is open to anyone living within the Lake Boon watershed or within a mile of the lake.

Since the inception of this program many tanks have been pumped at the discount price, saving money for individual homeowners while preserving property values and helping reduce nutrients and weed growth in the lake.

The more frequently a system is pumped (recommendation every 1 – 2 years depending on family size), the longer it will last and work well. The LBA sponsors this program spring and fall each year, and so far Rich Casaceli continues to give us a lower price than other area companies for an excellent job!

Please spread the word to your neighbors on Lake Boon so we can continue to do everything we can to clean up the lake and keep our septic systems running well.

Lighting the lake for Covid-19 heroes

It has been suggested that Boonies may wish to join the symbolic international support of the heroes in this pandemic:  the doctors, nurses, EMTs and additional medical staff who serve us with very long, hard hours while risking their own health and that of their families. It would also be in appreciation for those working to keep our essential food and other supplies and services available, who are also at risk, and for our community where folks are performing acts of courage and kindness.

Our symbolic support could take the form of “lighting of the lake” on Friday evenings starting at 8:00 pm until bedtime, beginning today, April 10th as we are able, going on at least through May 1st.   For those who wish to participate, window candles and/or small holiday lights would seem appropriate, without overpowering flood or spot lights.

Those wanting to be in sync with other areas clapping in appreciation of our Covid-19 heroes should do so at 7 pm. However, the sun is setting around 7:20 pm these days so lighting around the lake won’t be visible until closer to 8 pm.
