Stay off the Ice!

As of President's Day weekend, the thickness of the ice on Yankee Lake has reduced dramatically, now measuring only two inches (2”) near the shore. This thickness is not safe for foot traffic or winter vehicles. 

Although we have returned to freezing temperatures this weekend, the forecast is to be above 60° by mid-week. Therefore, the plans for a Children’s Ice Fishing Contest for 24 February have been canceled. 

Be safe!
