This has been a summer to remember at Land’s End. As of the date of this article we have yet to reach a temperature of 100 degrees. We’ve had a little rain every month to help keep the landscapes green and beautiful. Every summer month also brings some excitement to our community.
In May, Land’s End helped to host the Toyota Bass Master Classic fishing tournament. The tournament was a huge success, and the fishermen raved about our community. World records were set on the lake for the total weight of the fish caught during the tournament. The previous world record for a three day tournament, keeping five fish per day, was 83 pounds. This year’s winner, Keith Combs of Huntington, Texas, caught a total weight of 110 lbs and the top five finishers all weighed in with fish over 100 pounds.
The Land’s End Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Charity Golf Tournament on June 8th. It was, as always, a great success. The golfers had a wonderful time and the donations went a long way toward helping the Fire Department achieve its financial goals for the year.
July 4th was made even more special this year as Juli Neace, Dawn McCampbell and their flag crew put out 192 flags; 126 of which were placed in Land’s End. The flag placements, performed on special occasions, is a program the Fire Department took over from the Rotary of Quitman. It’s “manned” by Land’s End volunteers, headed by Juli.
August has been a month of activity within the community with residents and vacant lot owners beautifying their lots, working on landscaping common areas, and fixing fountains that add luster to our community. We also have Pave Pro, resurfacing and sealing roads and fixing existing trouble spots.
