  • Kidney Donor Needed for Lake Resident.  Request Letter.

  • Loon chick Update: (Aug 20th) The loon chick 6 weeks old was attacked and injured by an adult male loon near the northern part of the east shore. The Spencers and Houses witnessed the chick being attacked and when the fight reached shore, they were able, with dog Riley, to separate the chick. They called Darlene Sprague who netted it and turned it over to the Game Warden. The chick is now at VINS who will oversee its care and rehab if it survives. At this time the fate of the chick is unknown. There are no other chicks on the lake at this time, but several adult loons remain.
