Happy July Shadybrookers,

The summer is in full swing!  Get out to the lake!

This is the third year in a row that we have had abnormally high water levels, but fortunately the water has receded and dried up enough to make the beach an amazing place once again.  Jeff, Kory, and Mike have spent many days picking up debris and cleaning up the beach area so head down there and enjoy the warm water and the brand new water trampoline! The slide was also replaced this week. It looks the same as the old one but is a little taller and much sturdier.  We have also done some improvements to the playground in the big field.

Remember our beautiful park?(see attached photo to jog your memory). This space got destroyed in the flooding last July. The grade has been raised up to three feet, topsoil placed and graded. It will be seeded this week. A fence is also being constructed to keep vehicles out.  The area can be used while the grass grows. We will seed in again in September.
The area to the south of the park (which used to be overnight camping near the arrow) will now be a parking area for boat trailers. Boats should park backed into the line of trees. Do not drive on the topsoil area when parking. You will have to back in to park. There is also access here to walk along the mouth of the creek.

Due to the high water level there was a lot of standing water in Shadybrook for a few weeks.  We don’t want mosquitos impacting your holidays so we have been pumping out the pools and adding an ECO friendly natural product to the water to kill the mosquito larvae. The product won’t harm anything other than mosquito larvae so don’t worry if your dog laps up those puddles. Here is a review on the product if you are interested. http://www.mosquitoreviews.com/mosquito-dunks-bits.html

There seems to be a few abandoned canoes near the store.  If one of them is yours please write your name in BIG BOLD BLACK SHARPIE as if they are not claimed by August 1st, they will become property of Shadybrook. We will supply paddles so everyone can enjoy them for free on a first come first serve basis.


You may have noticed some grading taking place in the Phase 1 area last week.  This entire loop is scheduled to be paved on Tuesday July 16.  No vehicles will be permitted to drive on the pavement until Thursday July 18.  During this time Phase 1 customers can park in the field along the fence or in visitors parking. The parking area will be marked. All other traffic should access the resort via Lake Street which turns into Cardiff Ave. Thank you for your cooperation.  The paving will greatly reduce the dust and keep your RVs much cleaner, it will also slow traffic down with built in speed bumps.

Mike Moore and Mike Shenfield have been collecting money for the Firework show to be held Aug 31. If you are new to Shadybrook, this is a show not to be missed!  Thank you for your contributions to this amazing show.  If you have not yet donated please find the Mikes at either site 51 (phase 2 on the creek) or 73 near the washrooms on the middle road.

Mike Shenfield is also organizing the golf tournament on Sat. Aug 10 along with Gerry Huizer (site 81).  If your company has any swag they wish to donate to the prize table please deliver to Mike or Gerry.  Start finding a team of 4 or sign up as an individual and get paired up with some new faces.  Look for the sign up sheet on the bulletin board by Jeff’s house after July 26.

We have an immediate opening in the Boat Share program.   If you are interested in more information please email christine@shadybrookresort.com

Unless you are paying monthly, as of July 1 your full site fees were due.  If you have not paid your entire fees please do so asap.  Please email Christine if you require the balance due.

Enjoy your summer,
