Each summer, Loon Call Lake holds a Regatta and Corn Roast on the Saturday of the long weekend in August.
Per the Newsletter published on July 7th, the Regatta and Corn Roast for 2020 has been cancelled due to Covid-19 risks and restrictions.
Wasn’t That a Party!
We thought Covid-19 had turned the long weekend August 2020 into just an ordinary cottage weekend. But thanks to some creative thinking, August 1st ended up being a spectacular day.
The day dawned beautiful and sunny, and at 10:30 the Pandemic Paddle began. Canoists, kayakers, paddle boarders, people and pets took to the waters. Others stayed on their docks to welecome visitors. Everyone was smiling, chatting and visiting from a distance.
Thanks to your generosity, a large bin is overflowing with food for the Community Care Apsley food bank to be delivered on Tuesday. (If you still want to donate, please come by Lot 36.)
To top the day off, about two dozen watercraft converged on Lot 7 to listen and sing along with Drew Phillips (on Instagram @drewphillipsmusic). Drew took requests and played to a very satisfied crowd. Highlights included Stacy’s Mom, in which Drew was joined by Scott Phillips; and the Tennessee Whiskey where we learned who will leave the comfort of their boat for a whiskey shot. Get your request list ready for 2021!
