What's happening in Lakeport this winter? Snow, snow and more snow.
Anyone working in sync with snow is reaping the profits; raking or clearing roofs of snow is commanding $50 an hour or more. The slopes are drawing capacity crowds. The Lakes Regions Sled Dog Club will have plenty of snow for their annual races on February 11 to 13th. Our neighbors to the north in Meredith have the annual fish derby February 12-13 and they just featured The New England Pond Hockey Classic on February 5-7 that brought together 77 ice hockey teams from across the northeast to compete on 15 hockey rinks in Meredith Bay. The restaurants are gleaming and beaming So it seems the snow has been good for the Lakes Region economy. For others like we elders, our roofs are creaking as much as our bones.
The Lakeport Community Assn. folks are enjoying monthly dinners during the hibernation - pot luck, pizza night and next Chinese. That's for well-earned fun socializing.
Our next meeting on March 1st will host Allan Beetle of the WOW Trail promoting folks to buy a brick, engraved with your message, to be part of the upgraded Lakeport entrance to the WOW Trail at Elm Street. In 2011, the Lakeport entrance to the WOW Trail will have several new enhancements, including a granite stairway from the Lake Opechee Inn & Spa parking area, an information kiosk, granite benches and brick walkways. Bricks, engraved with your name or personalized message, are being sold to fund these upgrades with additional monies going to the WOW Trail general fund which is used to expand, maintain and beautify the WOW Trail. Buy a brick today, help beautify the WOW Trail and leave your legacy forever!
Our eyes are on the Hathaway House, the Goss Reading Room and the Colonial Theatre, all historic sites very worthy of hugging and striving to save.
Stay warm and stay in touch,
