We got some wonderful pictures from Peggy Bullard this year, and the following note:
You’ll see in the pictures that we had a delay in going out due to the fog but I think there were about 10-12 boats that day and the fire & rescue boat on duty. Thankful we didn’t need them.
One picture was during lunch and you can see that even after all boats in the dump truck was not over the top as it has been in years past. Thankful for that means a cleaner lake that we are cleaning.
Thanks Peggy, and to the rest of the volunteers from the Lake Mitchell Home Owners/Boat Owners group!
