Dog Park Club Request
Hello Roaming Shores Residents!
Do you love dogs? Do you love your dog?
It’s not hard to see that our community is full of dog loving residents. Take a ride on the lake. Take a trip through our community roadways. You’ll see plenty of furry four-legged creatures enjoying time with their human families.
The RRA Board of Directors is developing plans for providing a dog park for these waggy tail residents and their humans. It may sound easy, but it takes a lot of planning and preparation before em -“BARKING” on such an initiative. We have two prime locations for consideration. We have contacted our legal and insurance experts. We are in contact with fencing companies for product, price, and scheduling. Options for purchasing waste bags and containers are being reviewed. That’s pretty much the easy part.
The hard part is ongoing maintenance. Who is going to empty those containers, who is going to monitor for cleanup, etc. Who is going to answer complaints. If we do embark on such an initiative, this amenity will need to be managed by us, the residents. Do we need to consider a membership? How do we provide access? How can we effectively do temperance testing? How can we ensure participants are properly vetted? Should we keep small dogs separated from large dogs?
Jeff Gross and I have been asked to pursue this review. We are looking for interested residents who may be interested in assisting with finding the right answers and the right design. It may be helpful to create a “Dog Club” who can not only manage and monitor such a facility but who can also introduce some other canine activities such as dog parades, dog walks, dog shows, dog calendars, and whatever else could be dreamed up!!!
If you are interested, please contact me at the email listed below. Also, feel free to call the office and leave your contact information. An initial meeting of such a “club” will be scheduled soon. Please provide your name, your phone number, and your email.
Thanks for your help and consideration. We look forward to meeting you and your furry friends! Remember it does take a village!

W4R Rockin’ at the Shores Sept 3rd
By Barb Buckley – STARS Club
Don’t they look ridiculous?? You bet, but the Waiting For Ray (W4R) band is probably five of the best most fun-loving, talented musicians you’ve ever run into. The group is sponsored by the STARS Club and will perform bringing their party atmosphere to the Shores at the Entertainment Pavilion on September 3rd at 6:00PM.
W4R has been a popular Pittsburgh band for many years, but you may also recognize two of the members, brothers Ray and Scott (left side), as Shores residents who spend much of their time at their family home at the Shores. They are very entertaining to watch and they hope to see you all on the lake or at the beach to help bring the holiday weekend to an exciting close. 90’s+ rock music is the Band’s specialty and they are excited to meet you and perform at the lake for us. W4R will take the Shore’s concert series to a whole new level. You can learn more about them on their website at waitingforray.com. See you there!
