So please come and join us as we celebrate Jason P. Scribben’s memories and support safe boating on our Lake.
The Annual Fireworks Display will be Saturday July 6th at 10pm, weather permitting. The rain date will be July 7th. The annual display is made possible by the generous donations of our Membership and the tireless efforts of the STARS Club. The show is best viewed by boat or from the Beach 1 area.
Boaters: Please anchor your boats around the buoys (rather than down the lake) for safety and the best view of lower & sky driven displays. Try to be in place by 9:30pm/9:45pm.

A reminder from the Roaming Shores Community Preparedness Club
Submitted by Louise Lisac
Please refrain from flushing any type of wipes; even the ones that say flushable. They have been contributing to problems in many communities and sewer systems have been negatively affected. It isn’t the design of the sewer systems causing the problem; it’s the design of the wipes themselves. They are not toilet paper and do not decompose in a reasonable period of time. They have been linked to blockages in many cities. Recently our own Shores has experienced an increase of wipes and they have created issues for our lift stations, our systems and our workers.
You may want to do some research on this topic. I know I did and I extracted the following from the website: https://strictlymanology.com/are-dude-wipes-flushable/
I don’t mean to be sexist with this specific website. It’s just that it had the most down to earth English version of why flushing wipes is a bad idea. Check out the experiment they initiated to prove it. Listed below is their conclusion.
“I’m not sure what the “Guidelines” are for flushable wipes, but based on my rudimentary experiment, I’d say that municipalities are onto something when they say their sewage systems are being clogged by these wipes.
One argument from flushable wipe companies is that people are flushing non-flushable wipes, which is the true contributor to clogs.
Again, I’m going to defer to my experiment and say that both flushable and non-flushable wipes can be a contributing factor to these sewage clogs.”
Please reconsider the next time you think of flushing a wipe and don’t. You can dispose of them another way. Save our sewer system, prevent inconvenience and needless repairs! You may also save some problems with your own plumbing systems. Thanks everyone for your consideration and your participation in the 2019 no flush wipe season!!!!
Plan to Attend the first ever… Roaming Shores Family Water Safety Event!!
Be at the Clubhouse Pavilion, Beach 1 and get some tips on how to enjoy fun on and in the water while understanding how and why to stay safe. Our motto… Enjoy the Lake!! Stay Safe!
Our newest club, the Roaming Shores Community Preparedness Club, is sponsoring this event. It is open to all ages. We are never too old or too young to be reminded of how to respect both the joys, and the dangers of playing (recreating) on or near the water.
Come hear a presentation by the ODNR. Our own Lake Safety Team will be there as well as our Pool Safety Advisor. Some tips on how to keep your four legged family safe will also be provided! Tell your friends and neighbors or better yet bring them along with you. Learn, be prepared, meet some fellow boaters and water lovers!!!
There will even be some entertainment for small children. Yep… some snacks as well!!
No reservations are required and this event will take place rain or shine!! Let’s hope it is the shine part, but just in case we will be under cover so the rain will not stop us!
Hope to see many of my fellow friends and neighbors at this event. You have nothing to lose since there is no admission charge, but you have everything to gain if it helps you keep yourself and your family a bit safer while you enjoy our beautiful lake and pools this summer!!!
