Waterfront concert August 22

Come join the band Hard Knox on the water for music on Lake Boon, Sunday, August 22 from 3 to 5 p.m. at 82 Pine Point Road (near the Barton Road dam).

Hard Knox, featuring Pine Point resident Kirk Westphal (who is also directing the Healthy Lake Boon study), was born of the pandemic in the Berkshire Foothills, along the road that General Knox used to haul cannon during the Revolution.

The band plays familiar rock, blues, and folk songs from the ’60s through ’90s. You’ll know the words and they always have an extra mic if people want to join in for a song or two.

Donations will be collected for the Lake Boon Association for the betterment of our lake.

Rain forecast prompts board removal from dam

Dear Lake Boon residents,

We decided to temporarily remove a board from the dam, because of the extended rain these past few weeks and additional rain anticipated with hurricane Elsa.

There is no real emergency, but the level was anticipated to reach 2” above normal.

So, the Highway Dept removed a board this morning, and will put it back in early next week, as the level returns to normal.
