Sharing is caring!

We had some nice weather for “dunk weekend” the past few days. The weather for today will be mild, with a high of 46 degrees and a low of 36 degrees.  There’s a slight chance of rain late afternoon and a good chance of rain after 10:00 pm.

Here’s a photo taken yesterday from the top of the Meadow Mountain trail of Route 495.  On a clear day, you can see forever and definitely worth the 1.5 mile hike up…

And, now we go from the serene to the not so serene.  Here’s a great photo taken by Brian Trehan of participants as they were just about to enter the lake for the dunk on Saturday.  They look a bit chilly, but at least there was no ice.  Thanks for sharing Brian!

Just Before the Dunk, by Brian Trahan

Had a nice dinner with partner Sarah and our respective spouses at Alpine Lake in Terra Alta Saturday evening, which was Rib Night in their lounge. Sarah took this “action photo” of a rack of ribs just before we annihilated it.  The ribs were great and the price was right too.

On a sad note, local resident, Civic Club member, and generous volunteer Pat Shelton passed away Saturday evening. Pat was a super nice, giving, retired school teacher that was a big contributor to the lake area.  She will be missed by many and in many ways.  Our condolences go out to her family and all her many friends.

Have a great Monday folks…
