September is a beautiful time at the lake. There are still plenty of activities to take part in and fun things to do. Last Saturday’s 20th Annual Fat Tire Ride attracted hundreds of cyclists, who enjoyed a fun tour around the lake along with rest stops at a number of local watering holes like Chuck’s in Fontana and Champs Sports Bar in Lake Geneva. On Sunday, we all paused to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. A gentleman stationed on the Sheridan Springs Road Bridge over Highway 12, just outside of Lake Geneva, solemnly held the American Flag as a reminder to passing motorists. The U.S. Mail Boat made its final deliveries to Geneva Lake homeowners this week. Although this is a sure sign that summer has come to an end, Lake Geneva Cruise Line has plenty of lake tours on tap for the fall.
