4th of July Weekend Recap

Independence Day Weekend is always a busy time here in the Shores. Despite the 50th last year being the biggest ever, this year was no exception.

The Festivities began on Saturday, July 1st with helicopter rides over the lake provided by Stellar Copters. Captain John Marstellar provided some of the best views of the lake throughout the day to many brave passengers, young and old. Here’s some video in case you would either like to relive the moment, or didn’t have the opportunity.

Also on Saturday was the Annual Jason Scribben Memorial Volleyball Tournament. The game is played in the memory of Jason P. Scribben, a senior at Grand Valley High School and died in a boating accident on Lake Roaming Rock on July 4th, 1998. The winners this year (once again) were the Ruebel family.

The day capped off with a bang… literally… with the Annual Roaming Shores Fireworks Display. I know we say this every year, but this show was truly one of the best ever! Thank you to everyone who contributed towards making the fireworks show a reality that keeps getting better year after year!

The following morning was the 2nd Annual ‘Givin’ it a Tri in the Shores’, a fun Mini Triathlon where participants completed a 160yd swim in the lake, a 5.75mi bike ride, and a 2 mile run.

Swim Lessons Recap

Over 30 children participated in the free swim lessons that were provided by the STARS Club last week. The students were lead by instructor Paul Pero with help of Leeann Moses, Jen Addair, as well as a few parents. As the week progressed, the students became more comfortable in the water, learned basic strokes, and had a lot of fun, too!

Plans for swimming lessons next year are already in the works.

Thank you to everyone who participated and to our helpers and to our instructor Paul Pero!!

Morning Star Closed – Wires Down

Update: This issue has been resolved.

Please be advised that Morning Star Drive between Lake Crest and Acacia Circle is currently closed due to trees and wires being down. The Illuminating Company has been informed. Click here for up-to-date outage information.

It is very windy outside today, the potential for other downed wires, trees, and power outages is high. The Association will be closing roads for safety if there is a hazard. Use caution when venturing outside today.

Downed power lines are dangerous. Never touch them. For safety’s sake, always assume that a fallen power line is live, and follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid touching the downed line with your hand or an object, such as a stick, broom or pole.
  • Avoid touching anything, such as a car, object or equipment, or anyone who is in contact with a fallen power line.
  • Keep children and pets away from fallen electric lines.
  • Avoid driving over a fallen power line.
  • Call 911 immediately to report a fallen power line.
