It appears that most of the snow has gone and the ice on the lakes as well. A lot of the birds are back now with new arrivals daily and the frogs have begun to serenade us nightly. Everyone is very relieved after our long and snowy winter, especially the snow plow operators. Our thanks to them for working almost everyday in some extreme conditions on snow and ice removal. Everyone is starting to clean up and seasonal residence are checking their cottages. Just a reminder if you intend to burn a permit is required and can be obtained on this site or at the municipal office at no charge and as the season progresses check for any fire ban notices that may be put in place. Hope everyone is enjoying the signs of spring throughout the season.
