It’s Labor Day weekend and the traditional end to summer fun. We hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy the lake and the area this summer. Fall can be a lovely season to continue to appreciate our lake. There are two guided hikes in the Van Vliet Hemlocks sponsored by the Friends group this fall. On Sat, Sep 14, John Schwarzmann of the BCPL will lead a hike starting at 10 a.m. On Sat, Oct 12, Discovery Center staff will lead a fall color hike starting at 9 a.m. Both hikes are free but numbers are limited. Register at the Discovery Center website. Join friends and neighbors for a VVLA pot luck and campfire on Sat, Oct 5 starting at 5 p.m. at Mike and Ronie’s home. Bring a dish to share and your choice of beverage. RSVP to Ronie and give me an idea of what you can bring.
