Hello BMPOA Members,
Welcome to 2017 summer activities. Included with this mailing are documents related to the Recreation Program: a Cover Letter from our Parent Chair, Sara Carr, the Schedule in calendar and detailed format, and the Release Form required for participation. Thanks to Kurt Pardue, Program Director, and Sara for their terrific effort.
Invasive species are in many nearby lakes, which escalates concern about protecting our water. The Lake is carefully inspected in August each year, and so far we appear to be clean. The potential problem is significant and very, very expensive to remediate. It is incumbent upon all of us to make sure we and our guests inspect canoes, kayaks and boats before launching from private docks. Questionable material should be removed and bagged, not left where it might wash into the lake. Dunn’s Boat Service is doing a great job of inspecting and washing powerboats before they are permitted to enter the lake.
