Family + Friends + Food + Fireworks
= 4 x FUN
This equation proved true once again at Moon Lake’s celebration of our country’s independence.
In the morning, the community gathered for the annual membership meeting, which included welcoming new members, discussing the progress of the lake improvement projects, and planning for the lake’s promising future. With business matters completed and a sun-filled sky calling, family and friends partook in a variety of activities, from taking leisurely walks around the lake, to admiring the various flowers and wildlife, to boating in a multitude of vessels including a pirate ship, which captivated the imagination of children of all ages.
By early evening, the day’s events helped build a healthy appetite; the pavilion bustled with members seeking nourishment. The July 4th holiday is a time for hot dogs, but this picnic provided many other delicious selections including kielbasa, pulled pork, and barbecued ribs. Even one of our 4-legged companions managed to enjoy some fine culinary selections.
As dusk approached, Seth Lowe and his pyrotechnic A-team began preparations for their most ambitious show to date. Thunder Over the Lake 2013 was a spectacular display of light and sound, and exceeded the high expectations surrounding an event that has become the top highlight of summer at Moon Lake.
As darkness returned to the sky, family and friends gathered around campfires and extended the festivities long into the night. Eventually, the croaking of the bullfrogs was the only remaining sound, while everyone rested from the day of fun and dreamed of next year, when the backdrop for the show will be our newly renovated dam.
