Due to such a low number of RSVPs received (probably due to the bridge closure), this Friday’s Friends and Neighbors Potluck Supper has been cancelled.
Hopefully the RT 45 bridge will be fixed soon. Mark your calendars for the August Potluck – August 17th.

Cook-off Preliminary Info:
How it works:

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 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.
