To show his appreciation for helping him put in his dock one summer, Albert Matson took the members of the Marion Boys Club on a tour around Big Bass Lake. They saw areas of the lake they rarely had viewed as their usage of the lake was largely of the southwest and southeast portion of the lake.
We traveled through the “narrows” and past an ever active Camp Martin Johnson as the boys watched the waterfront swimmers have a great time. They had always wondered where those 6am bugle calls came from and now they knew!
We then circled both Four Winds and Turtle Islands and then proceeded to the area where the channel between Big and Little Bass Lake was located. From there Al took us to the extreme northern section of Big Bass Lake and then back to his pier.
The boys had a great time on the tour and thus their labors for putting in his dock that early summer day was truly rewarded.
