The Roaming Shores Police Department would like to encourage and invite our community and the surrounding communities to participate in our first annual Can the Cruiser Food Drive. On November 17th from 11:00 to 3:00 the Roaming Shores Police Department’s cruisers will be parked at two locations, #1 the Village of Roaming Shores Administration Building; 2500 Hayford Road, Roaming Shores Ohio 44084 and #2 the Rome Rock Association Office; 1875 Rt 6, Rome Ohio 44085, to accept new nonperishable food items and monetary donations. All donations collected will be delivered to Country Neighbor and ultimately be used for their Christmas Food Basket Program.
Please do not clean out your pantry and donate expired goods, they are unusable and will have to be thrown away.
The Country Neighbor Program serves the needs of Southern Ashtabula and Northern Trumbull Counties and prepares approximately 175 meals daily to be delivered across the area. Country Neighbor is also Ashtabula County’s main food bank which supports approximately 15 food pantries spread across Ashtabula County. In addition to the above programs Country Neighbor also has numerous additional programs and services in the following six classifications: COMMUNITY SERVICES, HEALTH/WELLNESS SERVICES, OLDER ADULT SERVICES, NUTRITION PROGRAMS, PAPERWORK ASSISTANCE, CAREGIVER ASSISTANCE. For more information in reference to these programs and other services provided by Country Neighbor log onto their web site at www.countryneighbor.org

Weekenders and Snowbirds: As you may recall, a few homes in the Shores fell victim to frozen pipes that burst last winter. Please remember to shut off your water when you’re winterizing your homes! You can do so at the water meter inside your house.
If you need assistance, you can contact the RSV Utility Dept at 440-563-3146 or Vic Virmala, the Utility Supervisor, at 440-474-2302.
Fall in Northeast Ohio offers many beautiful and vibrant colors along the tree line. Often those colors create a scene that could easily be mistaken for paint on a canvas. Soon those beautiful colors paint the ground and so begins the yearly labors of picking up leaves before the first snow blows.
Some residents may be inclined to simply blow their leaves into the lake or culverts. When leaves are blown into the lake, the leaves accumulate on the water surface, especially in the backs of coves and along certain areas of our shoreline. As the leaves begin to decompose, the leaves will accumulate on the lake bottom around docks and places where people swim and fish. The decomposition of the leaves is what eats up dissolved oxygen (DO), which degrades water quality. It makes for a very rotten, squishy, unpleasant lake bottom.
The decomposition of those leaves in the lake contributes to;
- The depletion of dissolved oxygen (DO).
- Nutrient overloading, which later leads to algae blooms.
- Filling in of lake and cove areas.
What YOU can do:
- Not blow leaves or grass clippings into the culverts, street or lake.
- Mulch your leaves when mowing. Mowing more often will make it easier on you and allow your mulching mower to do the hard work. Think of the mulched leaves as tea leaves. When they are mulched into small pieces, the nutrients can be extracted much easier by water or rain and feed the soil reducing the need to use commercial fertilizer. And it’s free!
- Bag your leaves each fall before they blow into the lake.
- USE our COMPOST SITE. This is a great Roaming Shores resource!
With the help of all our residents and continuing to act a stewards of Lake Roaming Rock, our combined efforts will continue to maintain and improve our water quality.
Remember to Love the Lake and Be Lake Responsible
