Good Neighbor Days Committee releases revised schedule for 2021 celebration

HOWARD LAKE – The GND Committee just released the following statement regarding the 2021 event.

Dear Howard Lake Community ~ Given the ongoing current situation with COVID-19, it is with heavy hearts we announce that the “typical” Howard Lake Good Neighbor Days event will not be happening this year. Although, on the brighter side of things, we do plan on holding a Fireworks display Friday, June 25 around 10 p.m., which will follow a 7 p.m. Orphans baseball game against the Winsted Wildcats at Howard Lake Memorial Park. Come cheer on our local hometown Orphans team.  In addition, there will be a GND Medallion Hunt the week leading up to the weekend of June 25 – details can be found that week on the HL Community Facebook page and also on the GND Facebook page. The Howard Lake Fire Department is also planning on hosting a drive-through Pork Chop Feed from 4-7:30 p.m. June 26. And let’s not forget about our awesome Howard Lake Royalty. The royalty team will be holding a Root Beer Float fundraiser at the June 25 Orphans baseball home game from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. and then will be holding its Coronation Sunday, June 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Orphans ballfield at Howard Lake Memorial Park. In case of inclement weather, the event will take place at Howard Lake’s South Shore Event Center. A root beer float social hour will take place prior to the Coronation at 4:30 p.m. Be sure to come out and show your support for all they do for the community, as well as showing support in general for the overall royalty program. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to brighter days ahead where we can all gather together in celebration with little to no restrictions and mandates. Have a healthy and terrific summer!
