Summer time at the harbor. Warm days and low water this year. Better than the opposite and a far cry from last year. With the 4th of July just around the corner, make sure you observe the 'No Fire Works' signs around the marina There are no fireworks of any kind allowed on Harbor Point property. If you see or know of anyone violating this rule, please notify me.
The water level on the Alton pool will be going up soon. Not back to normal but a little more than what we had. Unfortunately this is only temporary as the river has crested in many places North of us. As soon as they start to recede, we will as well on the Alton pool, dropping us down to 413.5, our lowest level. As long as no more significant rain fall is predicted North of us we should be pretty close back to normal the second week of July at 419.3.
Fire works on the Mississippi at Alton will be the 3rd of July this year. If you are taking your boat out to watch the fireworks make sure to blast your horn when exiting and entering the marina. Outbound vessels are to sound one (1) blast while incoming vessels are to sound two (2). And always remember, no wake within the marina.
July 26th at 5p.m. we are having Band Night at the marina. We are looking for volunteers for this event so if you would like to participate, please contact myself or Dwayne Herndon. And don't forget, the marina is a great place to entertain and hold family events. The lift house can be rented all summer long, the clubhouse only Monday thru Thursday. For available dates and times feel free to contact me at 636-899-1513.
Pump-outs are scheduled on Tuesdays and Saturdays, but make sure to call in at least 1 day in advance.
Any questions or concerns please stop by the office or call.
