Boat found in second basin

jonboat This Great Canadian jon boat with “J Baker” stenciled on the aft seat was found this morning floating in the second basin. It is now on shore at 25 Worcester Ave. There isn’t a J Baker on the Lake Boon mailing list, so that may be the name of a previous owner. Leave a comment below if it’s yours and help is needed to get it back home.

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!

Fall discount septic pumping: sign up by October 12

Once again, the Lake Boon Association is sponsoring a discount septic pumping program this fall. The program will run beginning the week of October 22nd. Deadline for sign up is Friday October 12th.

Casaceli Trucking will be doing the pumping once again and pricing remains the same as it was for the spring program.

To register please email David at or call Dave Siewierski at 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 to improve groundwater and lake water quality.

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.
