Wow! A moose!

Bonnie Hill sent this a few days ago:

“My Husband Rich and my brother were fishing on the lake on Thursday, July 20th at 8 in the morning. Saw this Moose by the boat landing. Pictures are not too clear, but thought we would share.”

Thanks, Bonnie! Aren’t we lucky to be here.

 

Gorgeous

Bonnie H. sent these beautiful Autumn photos from the Turtle River at the south end of the lake. Wow! Thanks, Bonnie!

A walk on the road

These photos are from a walk I took on the morning of October 30. It had been raining all night and the sun shone intermittently through the clouds, providing some interesting light. They were taken on Lake of the Falls Road between the stop sign and the left turn by Voyager. I thought they were nice enough to share.

If you have pictures from around the lake, you’re invited to send them to lofassociation@gmail.com. I think everyone would enjoy seeing them posted here. Thanks!

Kiosk

Our new informational kiosk, donated by the Lake of the Falls Association and built by thumbnailLOFA member Elmer Gosh, was approved at the Mercer Town Board meeting on Thursday, September 1 and installed next to the public landing on Moose Creek Lane by an enthusiastic group of volunteers on the morning of September 2. We’re grateful to Elmer for his efforts. It looks terrific! The board has designated a committee to take responsibility for the materials posted inside. After years of discussion about this, it’s great to see it in place.

Thanks to Jack S., Mike M., and Tom T. for contributing these photos.To enlarge them for a slideshow, just click on the first one.

A beautiful day for a picnic!

The Lake of the Falls Association’s annual picnic was last Sunday and we all had a great time! Thanks to Lynn and Jim at Beaver’s for hosting, and to everyone who helped out and brought food to share; and a BIG thanks to James Wehrmann for cooking the burgers and brats to perfection for the sixth year in a row.

Our membership meeting and election of new officers took place before the picnic. Minutes and election results will be posted soon.
