I have never in my 31 years on Candlewood Lake looked forward to the 2018 boating season as I am right now. Bring it!

The Candlewood Lake Authority has posted a heads-up on their website about their 2018 State of the Lake invitation on Sunday, April 22 at the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department ESF Charter Hall from 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm called.
