    Can you believe it-the 4th of July has come and gone!!!! We hope you all had a GREAT holiday with family and friends!
    This past winter started out slow. In fact, White Sand Lake still had open water on Christmas Eve and that was a first for us. Because of the late ice, many lakes up here were unsafe for car or truck travel
    (Yes - we do drive on the lakes in the winter - but only when its safe and you remember to keep your windows rolled down!). But, Jack got out on the ATV and did some ice fishing for White Fish, and we are now enjoying this smoked delicacy!!!

    Greetings from D.C.-

    I just returned from the Northwoods and it was beautiful as usual. I miss it already.
    While I was there, one of the Camp members suggested I send this link to our Board members to see if we might want to send it to our Association members. It's a neat way for them to link up and communicate with neighbors.
    This link describes it: https://nextdoor.com/about_us/
    And this link would go out to members: https://nextdoor.com/invite/rshqvhsfjazwhwndaudx/
    Thought I would pass along the information.
    Cheers, Denise
