Easter Egg Hunt

 This Saturday is the annual Lake Barcroft Easter Egg Hunt at 11 am at Beach 5.

Organized by the Woman's Club, this family-friendly event is a huge draw and a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday.

There will be over 3,000 eggs hidden in and around various areas of Beach 5 and children will hunt for eggs by age group, so every little bunny is sure to get some treats to fill her basket.

So bring your Easter basket and the camera down to Beach 5 this Saturday for some family fun and socializing with neighbors!

See you there.

Earth Day April 17th – It's Official!

It's official!  Earth Day will be held on Sunday, April 17th from 3:00 - 6:00 pm at Beach 5, due to the persistent weather predictions for rain and strong winds all day Saturday and the potential for afternoon thunderstorms.

All of our volunteers and presenters have graciously agreed to come Sunday when the weather is supposed to be warmer, dry, and hopefully sunny.  Please come and thank them for their extraordinary spirit of cooperation to make this a successful event.


Seeing swarming termites is NOT a sign you have termites!! 

We do live in a forest and our forest landscape has termites who perform a very valuable function (chomp,chomp).  This is the season for swarming and it just means a colony is dividing.  You can see a swarm anywhere, anytime so do not jump to conclusions.

You can inspect your foundation yourself or call a pest control company to do so for you.
