Clam Lake News & Events

Good Monday Morning Readers!

Wow! What a weekend we had with that heat and storms and let’s not forget the 4 hour power outage on the hottest day so far…when the sun sat on Saturday we all thought it would cool down a bit but, we were wrong, it was still 80 degrees at 10:30pm which meant if you didn’t have air or a fan it was darn miserable sleeping. Then on Sunday we were lucky if we hit 70 degrees and sprinkle and pour and sprinkle and pour most of afternoon and the evening. This Monday it’s suppose to be 84 degrees let’s all hope the humidity stays at bay…

Welcome home to Jean Meindel, she is doing great! We are all glad to see that she is doing so well…

This Saturday, June 17th at 10am at the Clam Lake Community Club on Clam Lake Rd. The Westfork Waterway Association would like to invite you the public to their meeting. A lunch will be served of hotdogs, baked beans, chips and soda.. So, mark that date down to come and see what the Westfork Waterway is doing. Hope to see you there!

With Father’s Day being this Sunday the 18th don’t forget that special Dad in your life… To every special Dad have a very Special Day!
