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!

As Spring slowly creeps its way in, some residents are beginning to clean their properties and take yard waste to the compost site. As a reminder, the Village changed the access procedures for the site.
Keys are no longer available to access the Compost Site. To access the site, please complete the Compost Site Access Form. You can either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or take a picture and text it to 440-805-9018. Instructions will be sent upon approval. The new system utilizes a smartphone app.
Contractors performing work on behalf of a resident must complete a form and pay a fee to the Village of Roaming Shores for access. Please have your contractor register at the Village Hall at 2500 Hayford Road.
Note: The Association office does not own or operate the compost site and cannot grant access. Please contact the Village for any and all issues.

Flurries are back in the forecast, winter is coming, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind residents of our snow rules.
At this time, residents should make sure their mail boxes and posts are secure enough to withstand our winter snow plowing operations. Wood posts and mounts can rot over time. You may also want to consider installing a snow shield in front of (not attached to) your mail box to help deflect the snow from the snow plows. Our drivers try not to hit mailboxes, but they do occasionally get knocked down due to heavy, wet snow. Our policy is to only repair the boxes we strike.
The Association would like to remind residents that parking on the roads/and or berms on association-owned roadways is prohibited when the snow depth exceeds 2″ (two inches). This is necessary in order to facilitate the plowing and/or removal of the snow. Please help our plow drivers by removing your vehicles and all obstructions from the roadways.
The Village has an ordinance against plowing snow out into or across the roadways. Please make your plow drivers aware of this rule.
For garbage service, Waste Management asks all customers to please have the area and pathway around your container cleared of snow and ice.
Weekenders and Snowbirds: Don’t fall victim to frozen pipes this winter! Please remember to shut off your water when you’re winterizing your homes. You can do so at the water meter inside your house. If you need assistance, you can contact the RSV Utility Dept at 440-805-9018 .
The warmer temperatures helped extend our enjoyable time on the lake well into the Fall, but time has come to put the boats away for the season.
Boaters, please remember to grab your state registration off of your watercraft before winterizing. Valid registrations are required when registering your watercraft with the RRA.
