We are hearing the sounds of the Winter greetings around our Long Lake that is frozen over about three-fourths of the way now. Folks are keeping a watch on the webcam to see the swans swimming about in the deep part of the lake and wondering when the ice will totally freeze. There are a few fish houses near the south access. Generosity continues as the New Year approaches! The Long Lake Area Association Foundation has raised a total of $23,610 for the fund drive which started July 1, 2015 and ends June 30, 2016. To Every Heart, Gratitude, Joy, Light, and Peace!
