ooops!  Please note the Scrabble Tournament is on Sunday February 10th (not the 11th) !

Also keep your eye open for the return of Floundering Freida!


Guess when she will sink into East Lake!

The mysterious mermaid of East Lake is back!  Freida roams the icy surface of East Lake throughout the winter months, longing for the ice to melt so she can return to the lake.

Freida has been seen by many a fisherman over the years, but has never been caught.

Participate in our 50-50 draw – come out and guess what day and time the ice will melt on East Lake, to allow Freida to return her East Lake home!

Tickets: $2 each or 3 for $5!
