New Look Website

It is finally here!  The new look website is now available to view.  Our apologies for this taking longer than anticipated, but we hope you enjoy it.  We will continue to make some changes over the next few days and weeks and I am sure we will find some ‘glitches’ along the way so please let us know if you find something that we missed.

Easter Weekend

Just a reminder that the Easter Egg Hunt is this Saturday starting at 10:00am.  Children from ages 1-12 are invited and there will even be a guest experience from the Easter Bunny!  If you plan on attending, please bring 1 dozen filled eggs to the Administration Office by Friday.

Also, if you haven’t made your reservations for Sunday Easter Brunch, there is still room available.  Please contact the Office at 936-295-8181 to book your time.

Storm Damage

If you have received damage due to the recent storms, please make sure to complete the required paperwork for repairs.  The fee for a project request is being waived due to the circumstances, but the forms still need to be completed prior to the project beginning.  If you have any questions, please contact the Architectural Control Committee at acc@elkinslake.net for more information.

Controlled Burn

We have recently received information from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department that at certain times between now and April 2016, they will be doing controlled burns in Huntsville State Park.  During this period, you may see smoke in the neighborhood or on nearby roads.  They are asking that you be cautious, reduce your speed, and use your low-beam headlights when smoke is present.  This is a normal prescribed burn that actually reduces the risk of a wildfire by eliminating the available fuels such as dead trees, leaf litter and other flammable vegetation on the landscape.  Additional information of how to be prepared can also be found at http://www.firewise.org or if you have any questions, feel free to contact Ray Black, Manager of Huntsville State Park,  at 936-295-5644 ext. 30.

Elkins Lake Recreation Corp. will also be burning our tree disposal area on January 18th.  As with the above, this is a very controlled burn.  Blowers are used to keep the timber hot and to burn with a limited amount of smoke.  If you have questions on this day or are concerned of the area involved, please contact the Administration office at 295-8181.

Join the Fun!

Over the next couple of weeks, a lot will be going on at the Club.  If you haven’t already signed up, the Open House will be tonight starting at 6pm.  Calling for a reservation does not necessarily reserve you a seating assignment, but it will definitely help to make sure we have the correct amount of food.  It is a ‘come and go’ type of event so even if you just want to stop in and see your neighbors for a few minutes, please join us.  Prior to and during the event, the Pro Shop will also be having their Annual Christmas Sale.  This will start at 5pm and go until eight also.  It’s a perfect time to use what you may have left on the credit book.

This Saturday is Breakfast with Santa.  As always, the reservations are increasing but Santa always has room for a couple of more.  Please contact the office to make a reservation.

The following Sunday is our Christmas Brunch.  We figured that by now, you have completely digested your Thanksgiving turkey and it is time to eat again.  See you at the Club!

Thank You

Elkins Lake would like to say “Thank You” to all of the Veterans that have served our Country.  This mornings turn out for the Flag Raising was overwhelming and a big Thank You for all who were here and participated.
