Lakes Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday, April 19; 9 AM

Easter weekend is just around the corner. Be sure to bring the little ones to The Lakes Clubhouse for our annual Easter Egg Hunt beginning at 9 AM sharp on Saturday, April 19.

Those 2-4 years of age will gather eggs in the Kids Cove at 9 AM and of course there will be a special appearance by the Easter Bunny.

Children 5-7 years will hunt on the west side of the park at 9:15 and should line up at the black gate just outside the gym.

Those 8-12 years will hunt on the east side of the park and should line up by the double black gate (by the dumpster) at 9:15.

After the hunt, we will serve breakfast in the multipurpose room for the families. Along with baskets and cameras, bring your appetite as well.

Cinco de Mayo Celebration

Saturday, May 3

Once again, the Lakes Women's Club will be sponsoring the Cinco de Mayo celebration in the park at the Clubhouse. This year's event will be held from 5:30 to 8 PM on Saturday, May 3.

This family friendly event features authentic and quality Mexican entrees accompanied by rice, beans and chips. New this year, we will have a salsa and guacamole bar that will include sample recipes of varying flavors and heat. Water, lemonade and margarita mix will be provided and guests are welcome to bring tequila, cerveza or other drinks.

Besides wonderful neighbors and glorious weather, the afternoon in the park will also bring music, dancing and a Zumba (salsa style) instructor - for those willing to give it a try. And of course Cinco De Mayo would not be complete without a piñata for the kids.

Tickets are $10 per person if purchased in advance, but will be $12 each if purchased at the door. Children age 4 to 11 will be $5 each and there will be no charge for children under 4 years. Tickets are now on sale and are available at the Clubhouse.

We hope you will choose to come and join in the fun - Ole!

Lake Level to Rise

Posted: April 1

We're adding water to the lake, so boat owners should keep an eye on mooring lines. We'll also be irrigating the Southshore lawns very soon. The add will probably take four days or less. Thank you.
