It's been a long, hard summer - they all are, but the annual Labor Day celebration gives us a chance to reach for a little relief. Join your Lakes friends and neighbors Monday, September 1 from 4 to 9 PM for the Lakes Labor Day Potluck Picnic.

The pool will be in full use and the waterslide will be in the large park from 4 to 6 PM. Red Cross Certified Lifeguards will be on duty.

The Lakes will provide grilled burgers and hot dogs, lemonade and water. Food will be served at 5 PM and then you can dance in the grass to live music with the J Powers Band and spend time with neighbors and friends.

Residents are asked to bring their favorite picnic side dish for at least eight people. Some of the favorite sides include deviled eggs, potato salads, pasta salad, coleslaw, corn on the cob, baked beans and desserts of all kinds or one of your favorites. See you there!

Clubhouse Entrance Renovation - Done!

Preview the new look below

The old Clubhouse entrance has been renovated with durable pavers and the project will be complete for a Labor Day unveiling as expected. The old surface was a concrete aggregate that required regular resurfacing to repair chips and cracks whereas the pavers should maintain their looks for many years with virtually no maintenance.

The pavers are in place as of Friday, August 29 and will be tidied up and sealed on Saturday. The seal coat will cure Saturday and Sunday and the new look will greet the Labor Day partiers on Monday.

Thank you for your patience.
