Memorial Day Weekend 2020

Memorial Day Weekend has arrived. Long Lake is excited to welcome back our second home owner residents, guests, visitors, fishermen, sunbathers, recreational enthusiasts and birds, bears, and all walks of wildlife. We have been busy gearing up for your arrival to keep everyone healthy and safe as possible, but we need your help too.

We invite and ask everyone to please wear a mask in public, especially when less than 6 feet apart from anyone outside your immediate family and at our area businesses, inside or out.

We are observing CDC recommended social distancing protocols which recommend everyone to keep 6 feet apart as much as possible. Please observe the safety measures and wear a cloth face-covering when picking up food or retails items or in our essential stores and don’t forget to wash your hands frequently.

Stay safe, please help keep our small community healthy. We are excited to have our curbside-only retail operations, essential businesses and our take-out restaurants open and we ask you adhere to their safety standards so they can take good care of you too.

Please note: The Memorial Day Parade is suspended for 2020, but the American Legion Post #650 will be hosting a small-private ceremony commemorating those who have lost their lives while serving this country. The Long Lake Cemetery will be open to the public on Monday by 12 p.m.

The population of Hamilton County has grown significantly over the past several weeks and as things continue to re-open in our region, the population will increase in response.  It is critical that all of our residents continue to wear masks when in public, respect social distancing, and do not host social gatherings. Do not plan family reunions, birthday parties or other festivities. Remember that the healthcare infrastructure in Hamilton County is limited, we do not have a hospital or urgent care facility, and an outbreak in Hamilton County will have a significant impact on our summer and ability to re-open fully.

Model the behavior that you wish to see! Whether you are on a hiking trail, enjoying the local beach or picking up a curbside meal from one of your favorite restaurants, be mindful and respectful of those around you. There will be changes to the way we all interact this summer, but we hope to maintain the same sense of relaxation and hospitality. Our future relies on each of you to do your part!

Life in LL Today

Long Lake Legion 2009 Memorial Day

Long Lake Legion 2009 Memorial Day

Two days ago it was 80 degrees and beautiful. Yesterday, another humidish day, but the wind kicked up in the afternoon, shaking windows, blowing trees. My cousin was down the lake (that’s the Northend) moving docks over to camp. Our family boat still rests in the garage driveway at the marina, teasing me each time I drive by. I’m sure once the black flies are in full force, my boat will be ready.

This morning it was 30 degrees. It was virtually impossible to get the kids out of bed.

Today discussion was all about the summer. Where garbage cans go, what the garbage route is and how often it’s picked up. Don’t leave anything for the bears!

Next big event is Memorial Day. The American Legion of Long Lake honors those who served our country in a long standing tribute of respect and an honor to the freedom of the United States and all the sacrifices made by those who’ve died and served our country. This tradition is carried on from generation to generation and makes me proud to call myself a Long Laker.
