Viewing the 2014 Lake Fireworks Show

by admin on June 23, 2014

fireworks safe area

As we plan and prepare for our fireworks show Saturday, July 5, 2014 it is necessary that safety areas be created and observed.

For the enjoyment and safety of everyone please look over the map, and if you will be on the water, plan on staying clear of the “No Boats” area.

The North boundary is a line from the peninsula on the west side, east to the public access. The South boundary is  a line that runs south and east of the tunnel from Kimball Lake. Please leave as much area on the south side for our members from Kimball Lake.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and have a fun and safe Holiday.

From your Pickerel-Kimball Lakes Association Board
