2017 CANH Fishing Contest

On July 8th, 31 children from the Community Association of Northfield Hills came to Beechwood Lake to participate in the 9th Annual CANH Fishing Contest.  The contest was followed by a lunch of pizza, salad and assorted desserts in he Condo Clubhouse.  While this was a relatively small crowd, everyone enjoyed themselves.

The Canadian Geese which use Beechwood Lake as a habitat, all crowded onto this small peninsula,

undoubtedly because they're not used to sharing the lake with so many people.
