A Message from the Board
The Board of directors would like to report the following to the members of our community.
Work on the Hillcrest Beach area Park will be complete in the next few weeks. We have also finished the new handicap access area to the clubhouse and office.
The school bus stop across from the pool on Parkway is complete and 2 more bus stops will be added this year. We have filed papers for street lights to go next to the bus stops as well as other areas in Shorecrest.
We are currently working on the permit process with Mason County to start the initial steps for the clubhouse expansion. We will be asking for bids from 3 contractors to get a price on the expansion. Once we have all the information we will send out a letter to the community with the information gathered and a proposal as how to proceed. The Architectural Committee has been busy notifying homeowners of the Rules and Regulations regarding property that is in need of cleanup or other violations. We are making progress. It has been a very productive summer and we hope everyone notices the improvement to our neighborhood.
Thank you from your Board Members,
Bob Charleston, President
Rita Medaglia, Vice President
Paul McLaughlin, Treasurer
Judy Carr, Secretary

Our first Pancake Breakfast was served on Saturday Sept 15th, we had about 50 adults and 30 children attend. It was FREE to all. We hope to have more breakfasts in the future.
The Beach Club is having a Mitten, Scarf and Hat drive for the children of Shorecrest. Any donations would be appreciated, we will give them out by the first week of November so let your children know and watch the reader board for this upcoming event.
We will be having our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday November 17th from 4pm to 7:30pm again this year. This is a complete dinner with all the trimmings and it is FREE to all. Please come and join us. We will be asking for donations again this year and hope all that can afford to give will do so.
Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets will also be given away this year. If you know of a family in need please contact the office with names and addresses.
Refinish work on the pool started on Oct 10th. We have purchased 5 new lounge chairs and 3 new tables for the pool area. They were ordered in September in order to get the end of summer sale price. The pool was very busy this past summer in August alone we had more the 1,600 people sign in to swim.
Midnight swim parties were a huge success and the youth in our community seemed to really enjoy the activities that the pool staff organized for them. Pizza parties, movies, game nights, and Bar-b-ques were all great fun. We are trying to get a Teen Scene group started through the winter. It would be held every other Saturday evening from 6pm to 9pm. This would be for the youth in our community.
