Natural Gas Update

A letter was sent out to homes in the Phase 3 portion of the project.

Also download the explanation of the fees associated with getting gas to your house.



We now have all the material to start section 3 of Lake Shawnee.  We will be starting the work on or around November 16.  Depending on the weather and the digging conditions, this section will take approximately 4 months to complete.  The first street we will be completing is W. Shawnee Trail from Hurdtown Trail to W. Lakeview Trail.  I will send out the order of the remaining streets to be completed once we get closer to finishing W. Shawnee Trail.  As a reminder, do not cancel any of your oil/propane delivers or remove any of your heating equipment until after your gas service/meter have been installed at your house.

Social Committee is always Seeking Volunteers

In order to ensure the success and continuation of next year’s events we need more volunteers to come out and lend a hand. Social Committee membership is dwindling and many of the current members have older children who are into different activities, so in an effort to keep the momentum of our Social Committee we need new people to get involved. Without increased involvement we will be forced to cancel events that we have all come to love.


A large commitment isn’t necessary. We are asking members to sign up to chair an event(s). New ideas will be welcome, we will also share experiences and help you every step of the way. Unfortunately, if we do not get at least three people to chair each event listed the event may be cancelled. So grab some friends, pick an event and let’s work together to make 2019 an exceptional year!!


Winter Carnival- Chili Contest | Bunny Brunch Easter and Egg Hunt | First Beach Movie Night & Camp Out | Friendship Candle Ceremony | Community Day | Kid’s Pirate Day; | Ice Cream Social/Bingo Night | Karaoke Night on First Beach; | Movie Night & S’mores; | Wild West Beach Party | End of Summer Beach Bash | Halloween Trunk-or-Treat Party
