The STARS Club will be hosting a Holiday Winery Bus Tour on Friday, November 30th. Come see our local wineries decorated for Christmas time while enjoying their wines and fellowship with your friends and neighbors.
The wineries we will be touring are: Laurentia, Laurello Vineyards, South River Winery, and Red Eagle Distillery.
The first 28 to RSVP will be guaranteed a seat on the bus. Tickets are $30/each. You must be over 21 years of age. To reserve your spot or if you have any questions, contact Barb at 440-645-7365.
We will meet at the Clubhouse parking lot at 4:45pm. The buses will leave at 5pm!
Weekenders and Snowbirds: As you may recall, a few homes in the Shores fell victim to frozen pipes that burst last 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 440-563-3146 or Vic Virmala, the Utility Supervisor, at 440-474-2302.
On Oct 13th , the club hosted our yearly Clam Bake. There was a poor turnout, but the clams were great and everyone had a good time!
The big fish for September was a 17in bass caught by John Klein.
Our next meeting will be on Monday, November 12th at 7:30pm at the Clubhouse. This is the meeting that determines the direction of the club.
Questions to be asked and settled are:
Does the club want a bass tournament? A couples tournament? Do we want to help stock grass carp? Do we want to stock fat-head minnows? Do we want a fish fry? Do we want a clam bake?
Please come to the meeting to vote on these issues. If you’re not a member, please come and you can join for 2019.
Fall in Northeast Ohio offers many beautiful and vibrant colors along the tree line. Often those colors create a scene that could easily be mistaken for paint on a canvas. Soon those beautiful colors paint the ground and so begins the yearly labors of picking up leaves before the first snow blows.
Some residents may be inclined to simply blow their leaves into the lake or culverts. When leaves are blown into the lake, the leaves accumulate on the water surface, especially in the backs of coves and along certain areas of our shoreline. As the leaves begin to decompose, the leaves will accumulate on the lake bottom around docks and places where people swim and fish. The decomposition of the leaves is what eats up dissolved oxygen (DO), which degrades water quality. It makes for a very rotten, squishy, unpleasant lake bottom.
The decomposition of those leaves in the lake contributes to;
- The depletion of dissolved oxygen (DO).
- Nutrient overloading, which later leads to algae blooms.
- Filling in of lake and cove areas.
What YOU can do:
- Not blow leaves or grass clippings into the culverts, street or lake.
- Mulch your leaves when mowing. Mowing more often will make it easier on you and allow your mulching mower to do the hard work. Think of the mulched leaves as tea leaves. When they are mulched into small pieces, the nutrients can be extracted much easier by water or rain and feed the soil reducing the need to use commercial fertilizer. And it’s free!
- Bag your leaves each fall before they blow into the lake.
- USE our COMPOST SITE. This is a great Roaming Shores resource!
With the help of all our residents and continuing to act a stewards of Lake Roaming Rock, our combined efforts will continue to maintain and improve our water quality.
Remember to Love the Lake and Be Lake Responsible
