After many starts and stops, the town ramps are completed at the shore. Round Pond Village Improvement has had high hopes for this project for a couple of years and, due to permitting, the project was put on hold many times. Thanks to Hanley Construction for their patience and help on these much-needed improvements. The walkway to the middle dock was the recipient of some fixing up as well. There will be some happy boaters next season.

It is a very scary time for everyone and these ever-increasing numbers are telling us that perhaps we have become too complacent.
It is time to be hyper vigilant — put those masks on, frequently wash your hands, and socially distance. Are we all sick to death of these new terms concerning distancing and the requirements imposed?
