We have some nice Mountain Coaster Vouchers for the Wisp to give away to readers. We have four (4) available right now.  If you are interested in possibly winning all four send us an email to stating your favorite Deep Creek Lake area destination, product or service and you will be entered to win.  We will announce the winner in the Friday, September 20th Daily Notes.  Please note that the vouchers are only good through September 30th, so please don’t enter if you are about to leave on a trip around the world. Good luck.

The Deep Creek Lake Lions (Mike’s a member) continue to do some great work in the area. But like all non-profits, they depend on donations to help them continue their work helping those in need. One of their most important fundraising events is their annual boat auction: if you have an end-of-season desire to end your relationship with your boat, please consider a donation. You can check out their Facebook page here.

You may have seen more dragonflies than usual — so many, in fact, they appeared on the weather radar across the tri-state area.
