better way to enjoy a day off than with a little music, fun and breakfast with your
The Lakelands Social Committee treated residents to a special Independence Day brunch
at the pool. Neighbors lined up for a delicious spread of bagels, doughnuts, juice and coffee.
After brunch, the children waited patiently in line on the pool deck for a turn on the dol-
phin slide! The floating inflatable obstacle course was set up in the lap pool and provided
hours of wet, slick fun as the children climbed their way to the top and slid down the giant
slide into the pool.
The party’s generous sponsors of Village Settlements and Mike Aubrey of Re/Max
Metropolitan Realty had plenty of free giveaway goodies including footballs, Frisbees, sand
buckets, cups, candy and more!
Residents were able to enjoy a few hours of partying at the pool before the rain began to fall in
late afternoon. While most cookouts seem to be put on hold due to the heavy downpours, luckily
the storms passed just in time for neighbors to head out and enjoy the local fireworks displays. L

Kindergarten Get Together at Billy’s Playground

Lakelands kindergarteners are excited to get to know more of their classmates
at the get-together on August 21.
C alling all future Rachel Carson kindergarteners and your parents, Lakelands
moms Shannon Smith and Michelle Lumsden are organizing the now third
annual get-together for all children who will be entering kindergarten at
Rachel Carson this September.
Come out and meet your fellow community classmates on Thursday, August 21, 2007
at 9:30 a.m. at Billy’s Playground at Lakelands Park on Main Street. Juice boxes and fun
activities for the children are in the works.
“This is a chance for the children and their parents to meet other Rachel Carson
incoming kindergarteners before the first day of school,” said Lakelands neighbor
Shannon Smith. “The children should have their teacher assignments by then, so it will
also be nice to meet other children who will be in the same class. We hope neighbors will
spread the word to all incoming kindergarteners.”
If you are a kindergarten parent and would like more information about the upcoming
Kindergarten get-together, please e-mail Shannon Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. L
