Clubhouse Renovations Update

Clubhouse renovations are proceeding along nicely, with the mild winter so far Dave Pavalony is moving ahead pretty well. Hoping we can open for business by late Spring. 

During the reno, obviously the office is closed, but email and phone are still be monitored. 

Natural Gas Update

Note from Brian Klinger 7/29/2019

We have completed the gas main installation in phase 1 of Lake Shawnee. We also have 95% on the services installed to the homeowners who signed a contract with me. The remaining 5% of services will be installed within the next 30 days. Once your meter is installed, NJNG has completed all our work. There is now gas up to your meter. The remaining work is the responsibility of your heating contractor. Please have your contractor reference the yellow card attached to your meter. You are now ready to enjoy the savings of natural gas.


FYI- Phase 2 in Lake Shawnee will start in 2020. I will keep you posted via email and/or direct mail when we are ready to start the next phase.

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


If you are in phase 2, 3, or 4, please contact me to sign up for the natural gas when we are starting the main installation in that phase.

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
