Every summer season I find myself with lots of snapshots. This season, I'll be taking my usual pictures, I receive digital photos from people around the lake, and Casey Lockwood has agreed to take pictures around the lake.

So there should be no shortage of snapshots this summer. Check back to this page regularly to see the latest.

Marie Sullivan writes: Another nice fish from
Sylvia Lake caught by our granddaughter,
Brittany's boyfriend, Joey, last evening.

...a few days later...

Not to be outdone, here's Brittany with a catch of her own. "This is an 18" large mouth bass that she caught last night. " (July 25)
