Spring is finally in full swing with summer right around the corner. A thanks to all who attended the Annual Meeting. I am looking forward to working with this new Board of Directors.
The past year we accomplished a lot and I’m looking to carry that momentum into this new fiscal year in Roaming Shores.
I’ll be helping out at the annual cleanup this Saturday and don’t forget that we are also hosting a Business Expo in the Clubhouse for 9am-1pm
With the nice weather upon us please take extra caution when driving on the roads in our community. There is much more activity going on here in the spring and summer so be aware of kids playing near the roads and our deer friends at nightfall.
Our club’s have a lot of activities coming up. Find something that interests you and be involved with our community.
My mention of a Tug of War during the Annual Meeting looks like it might happen. Keep an eye on the weekly email blast for this and all happenings in Roaming Shores. Enjoy the weather and be careful out there!
President RRA Board of Directors
Dues and Assessments were due on May 1st. Any unpaid balances are now late and are subject to a 10% penalty.
As it is now past May 1st, all motorized watercraft in the lake must have 2019 RRA boat decals affixed.
Make sure when you purchase your decals that you affix those decals to your watercraft. This is a common mistake. Also make sure that your lot number is on each of your watercraft whether they are motorized or not.

Over our long winter, a few large trees fell into the lake. Here is some video of us using our dredging barges to assist in getting a large tree out of the lake near Morning Point.
In the Association’s continuous efforts of upgrading our facilities and infrastructure, the split rail fence located at the entrance and exit of the Clubhouse was replaced last week by our maintenance crew.
It looks much better, great job! Future improvements scheduled for this year include our outdoor restroom facilities.
