FUN Fundraiser Saturday

This Saturday, August 17th, we have a couple fundraisers in town that should be fun and rewarding.

One is a fundraiser for the Border Riders Club sponsored by 201 Powersports. This event is open to the public stop on by and grab a burger and take a chance on winning some fabulous raffles! Morning ride leaving 201 Powersports at 9am. Burgers and dogs On the grill from 12-2 Afternoon ride leaves at 130 pm. Raffles and 50/50 all proceeds and donations go to The border Riders Sportsman Club.

The second fundraiser is to support the ambulance and 24 hour acute care in Jackman. It is sponsored by the CHAT and JRCA at the town park from 10-5.  There will be information booths, safety demonstrations, health checks, food wagon, horse rides, scenic plane rides plus raffles, silent auctions and a 50/50 raffle.

Both events should be tons of fun, good food, and much needed fundraisers.

Then in the evening, stop by the Northland for some country and classic rock entertainment. The plan is for the band to be outside from 9p-12:30.

Have a great weekend.

Water fun

Today is one of those perfect summer days in Jackman. The skies are clear, sun is warm, no humidity and the waters are calm.   It is a great day to be out on the lake swimming, laying around in a tube, or water skiing.

Or just sit on the deck and watch them ride by

Just look up

If you are out on the ATV or sitting around the campfire, you just have to look up once in awhile and take it all in. You never know what you will see.

Our guest, Kelly D., woke around 3 am one morning and heard the loons calling. When she looked our the window, this is what she saw.

I have no other words to say on this.   Just a perfect moment.

 

Campfire and sunsets

I have always said that we get the best sunsets here at Cozy Cove Cabins.  The changing skies, clouds and many times, just the colors that reflect off the lake are awesome. Cindy and her friends captured a perfect moment. An incredible sky with a warm cozy fire in our common pit by the lake. What could be better?

4th of July in Jackman 2019

Another great 4th of July celebration in Jackman.   The parade seemed a bit smaller then usual but still fun.

I captured a couple of our guests waiting for the parade to start

After the parade, our guests and some friends all gathered on our shore for our annual 4th of July potluck.  Good food, good conversation, new friends.

Then the fireworks at the town field which as always, the best in Maine.

Snapping turtle nesting 2019

When I looked at our webcam yesterday I saw these three bumps.  Went down and saw momma turtle planting her eggs in the hole closest to the firepit.

We are not sure if she dropped her eggs in all three holes or not so we will put up some marker around the one and hope we can protest at least some of them.

The eggs will hatch anywhere from 60-90 days they say.  We’ll keep an eye out at the end of September.
