Thank you to all who have been out to FLB and are planting flowers, mowing, and making FLB look like we are open!

So what is happening new this weekend? 
The store will be open for ice cream, candy, soda, chips, souvenirs, tshirts, sweatshirts and bagged ice! How does a hot fudge sundae with whip cream and a cherry on top sound? Anyone missing a blue goo flavor burst cone? Maximum of 3 customers in the store at a time and face masks required to enter. Safety first! Our clerks are super excited to be back in the swing of things! Since today is our first day service is starting at noon and will go until 7pm.

We also will be having one of our lifeguards stationed on a picnic table near the beach to rent out fun stuff to do on the lake!  Boats and life jackets will be sanitized after each use. If under 18 your parent must sign our waiver. All come with life jackets.  Hours that an attendant will be at the beach is 12p-4p on Saturday, and 12p-3p on Sunday.
