On June 9, 2018 the club held its Kids Learn to Fish Day. Nine kids and their parents showed up for the event. The kids were taught how to tie knots, put on split-shot sinkers and bobbers. All of the kids received free fishing rods and learned how to cast them. The club also showed the kids the anatomy of a live large bluegill. The club demonstrated how to clean fish by 2 different methods, with an electric knife and a filet knife. The kids seemed quite impressed when you could clean and skin a fish in less than a minute. The meeting was followed by a hotdog lunch. It was a very successful event.

Jason Scribben Memorial Volleyball Tournament:

Jason P. Scribben was a senior at Grand Valley High School and died in a boating accident on Lake Roaming Rock on July 4th, 1998. We moved here when he was 2 years old. (At age 12 he met Shawn and Jeff Morris, they taught him how to play volleyball. He spent most of his summer days on the court.) The volleyball court at beach #1 was dedicated to him.

We will continue with the tournament in Jason’s honor, and the community really enjoys this event. This year the annual Jason P. Scribben Memorial 3 on 3 Volleyball Tournament will be on June 30th 2018 at the Roaming Shores Beach #1 Volleyball Court. The tournament will start at 1pm and registration will begin at 12:00pm.

Scribben’s memories and support safe boating on our Lake.

Sincerely, Rosemary Scribben, Amy Scribben-Snyder and Josh Scribben

“Monster” project underway

From Roaming Shores Village:

On Tuesday, June 5, Orwell-based contractor Easton Excavating will begin the long planned and much needed Cherrywood Terrace Waste Water and Water Line Relocation Project. Initial construction activity will include the installation of a 10’ waste water line in the public right-of-way at an existing manhole near 2482 Trellis Place.

The benefits of the project will be impactful and include the deactivation of a waste water line that is precariously located in the lake as well as the replacement of an aged waste water lift station at 3 East (Cherrywood Terrace/Plum Creek) and providing access to city water and sewer to present and future homes located outside of the village on Hayford Road.

The project is commonly referred to as the “Monster” since its core component consists of the relocation of a sewer line that has been witnessed – not photographed – by residents bobbing on the lake surface just like the Loch Ness Monster of Scottish folklore.

As a courtesy to the Village the contractor will suspend all work during the first week in July (7/2 -7/6) in order to not inconvenience holiday activities.

The target date for completion of the “Monster” is Thanksgiving of 2018.

Compost Site Update

If you need access to the Village’s compost site, you can again get a key from the RRA Office at 1875 US 6.

Remember, the compost site is a free service offered for residents. The site is for the disposal of yard waste only! Please do not leave yard debris at the site in plastic bags.
