We thank those who have been displaying the “Lake Boon Needs Your Help!” signs to raise awareness about taking care of our lake. However, a few of them have been damaged by snow plowing, blowing into the lake, etc. Please dispose of damaged signs and those that are not displayed reasonably.
There has also been concern about one of the three signs that incorrectly says “No wakes within 150 feet of shore, swimmers, boats.” In Massachusetts boating law, the 150 foot distance does not relate to wakes; it relates to motor boats moving at more than headway speed. The LBA ceased distributing that version sign as soon as the error was noted and Boonies who have those signs are encouraged to trade them in for one of the others by emailing Dave Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
