Another great summer weather week! Its been nice to get some rain too though as we sure have needed it. As you can see, we have some cool art in the store on display and for sale from Lake Designs. 5 different pieces (4 pictured above) are available in the store, and custom prints can be made upon request by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last weekend was the floating concert and we’ve heard great reviews from so many of you! We’ve passed on your kind words and want to say big thank you to Don, Sherrie and their family for organizing a great thing for our community. It was especially great since there are no fireworks this weekend.
A few updates came through from Peterborough Public Health this week. One is that they found Lyme disease in a tick and west nile in a mosquito in the Peterborough area. More information about both can be found here. The second update that we need to share with you is that starting tomorrow, masks will be required for anyone entering the store, and we will not be allowing any customers in the shop or service areas. We have masks available for purchase, hand sanitizer for use or for purchase, and appreciate your understanding as the girls keep making sure we are following all the rules.
We’ve been trying to keep our lost and found page up to date, so if you have a mystery posted there that has been solved, let us know so that we can update accordingly.
A message from friends: A few months back, during all the evolving and emotional upheaval, Don and I came up with an idea to get people together for a socially distanced fun event. What could we do? As so many of our traditions and reunions have been put on hold, a floating concert seemed like a great idea … could we make it happen? With Don’s brain working at high speed, a concert from the point off King’s Bay was born!!
On Saturday, July 25th, we invite you all … family, friends and your social bubble to hear the live musical tunes, of the ironically named “Foolish Behaviour”! The first set will begin at 2:00-3:00 and a second set at 3:30-4:30.
Enjoy floating off of King’s Point on Mississagua Lake! Remember water on water, beer on the pier!
Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Don and Sherrie
A note from Little Gull: Please remember the OPP have been on the water so make sure you have all the necessary safety things. And the Fire Ban has been lifted 🙂
Finally some rain! The nice weather has been great but we did need some rain, but we need more. The Fire Ban has not been lifted, nor do we know when it will be (Leah’s crystal ball isn’t working on this one). It’s all up to Mother Nature.
In other news, we are sad to let you know that the organizers have decided that the annual fireworks event will not be taking place this summer. All of the local businesses up here are so grateful for your continued support, especially this year and we hope to see you on the water next year!
With all the time being spent at the cottage for so many of you this summer, it seems likely that an item or two may have mysteriously disappeared off the boat or dock and lies at the bottom of the lake. Many of you may know Kendra from working here at the marina. She would be happy to help you rescue your items, and based on our experience probably will find things you didn’t even know were down there! Send her a text for more info or to book a time.
