The summer months are moving by fast, and July is half way gone! You may have remembered me announcing earlier that July is Parks and Recreation Month, and we still have a lot of activities to choose from here in the City of Blue Lake.
Not sure if it’s sunny in Blue Lake? Check out the sun cam on the Blue Lake Chamber of Commerce website at sunnybluelake.com. You know it’ll be sunny out here most days that it’s foggy on the coast. Our trail is a great place to walk on a sunny day, or bring your bike out to our area as well!
If going to the river is something you fancy, watch out for the blue green algae. The Health Department gives us updates on the confirmed algae found in our rivers, so please watch out for signs.
Are you the artistic type? The Blue Lake Parks and Recreation Department and the Blue Lake Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring the first Pastels in the Park on Saturday, July 21. There’s still time to turn in your sponsorship form!
But, art is not the only thing that will be presented on this day. There will be a variety of games for the whole family to enjoy too! So come on down to Perigot Park, pretty much any time that day.
And if you are interested in local government meetings, the next City Council meeting is on Tuesday, July 24 at Skinner Store, 111 Greenwood Rd. behind City Hall. And if you are interested in becoming a member of the Blue Lake City Council, there is currently two council seats up for the November election, and the nomination period is in full swing.
Stop by City Hall during business hours, which are 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 4 p.m. to pick up nomination papers. The nomination period ends on Aug. 10.
Well folks, that’s all from Blue Lake for now. See you in the sunny city soon!
