Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN)
Lake Shawnee has a long-standing, well-earned reputation as a community where neighbors help each other out in times of need. Our LSC Facebook Page is loaded with posts of neighbors reaching out for and receiving generous help. NHN was formed to provide an avenue for all LSC members to reach out
for help, particularly those of our neighbors who are not on social media, or may not have access to email etc.
If you are in need of help such as: retrieving mail, picking up prescriptions, finding a handy-person, moving something to the curb, a visit, a ride to a doc, meal assistance, sorting medications, etc.—
Please fill out this form and drop off at the clubhouse mailbox, or call/text one of our points of contact listed below to be matched with a neighbor looking to help.
If you would like to offer to donate help please fill out this form, contact number, and anything more specific if you wish, then drop in the LSC Mailbox. We will collect that information and when/if a need arises, we will reach out to see if it is a good fit for you. There is no obligation—if the timing is wrong, we will ask someone else on our list!
If you prefer, you can email to email@example.com.)

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 2023 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
