The warm weather over Labor Day weekend meant the lake was busy with those last summer boat outings. On Sunday morning, a boat fire destroyed a 21-foot Cobalt near Stone Manor, but the four passengers and dog on board were safely rescued by the Water Safety Patrol. The Walworth County Fair was well attended, with an increase in total attendance over 2014. Dates for the 2016 fair are August 31 – September 5.
