Pancake Breakfast

The Horseshoe Lake Volunteer Fire Department will hold a Pancake Breakfast at the Fire Station on Lake Estates Dr. It will be from 7 to 9 a.m. in the downstairs bay. This would be a good time to come and see the new truck and support your local fire department. Also a reminder that your 2016 Fire Dues are due. Everyone whether inside the Town or outside should pay $50 annually.



Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family of Betty Boozer, formerly of Horseshoe Lake, she passed away on March 5. And to the family of Linda Lewis of Canal Gardens who passed away on March 7.
