Swimming Lessons
Summer is coming fast! Free swimming lessons at Maple Lake will be held every weekday in July from 12-3pm!

Lake Committee Meetings
3rd Thursday of each month starting April 19th at 7:30 at the Town Hall. We need to plan for swimming lessons, life guards, and making the lake even better this summer. New members welcome and encouraged! Call John Hutchinson if you have any questions or suggestions.

Lifeguards Needed This Summer
We have a couple of applicants, but need one or two more lifeguards. Hours are from 12-6, seven days a week. Lifeguards must be certified in Lifesaving, CPR, and First Aid. (We can help you pay for the training.) Pay is $11 to $12 per hour. Call John Hutchinson at 301-926-8767, for details.

Maple Lake Cleanup
The Lake Committee’s annual cleanup will be on Saturday, April 21st at 10 AM. It will be a joint project with the Woods Committee which is also having a West Woods clean-up. Please join in and bring your leaf rake, shovel, and wheelbarrow if you have one. Rain date is Sunday, April 22nd at Noon. Call John Hutchinson at 240-997-5820 for details or questions.

Geese
We are using the Humane Society’s protocol again to humanely prevent eggs from hatching this spring. In the past several years a pair of geese has nested in an area easily accessible to our egg-oiling team. They drive away the other geese during nesting season and then leave when their eggs do not hatch. Please do not feed or harass the nesting pair or disturb the nest. If you see a nest built, please call Ann Philips or John Hutchinson. We encourage visitors to the lake to take along a plastic bag and scoop droppings. THANKS!
