If you haven’t visited the Squash Lake public boat landing lately, you probably haven’t seen the new signs that identify the Squash Lake Association’s storage building at the boat landing. SLA’s building serves as both a storage and information center for boaters and boat landing volunteers.
Squash Lake’s AIS Education Grant Coordinator Janet Appling recently used her artistic skills to create and wood-burn three new signs for the front of the SLA storage building. The sign directly above the doors features the SLA logo with the heron “S” in Squash, and two smaller signs depict the “Clean Boats,Clean Waters” logo. There is also a new “AIS alert” which will be displayed with our “Volunteer on Duty” sign.
Appling hopes the addition of the new signage will help educate the public and assist the volunteer boat inspectors who have generously donated their time to protect our lake. As the summer season ends, she sends “a big thank you” to all the boat landing volunteers who have made a difference in keeping Squash Lake clean.
