Forest Lakes Community Newsletter

JULY 2024

We encourage all residents to read their online newsletter - it will take time to get used to doing this! Bookmark it, print it, do whatever you need to do to make sure you read it. You can always find a copy of the latest newsletter(s) on our website.

Keeping in the Loop


** Pool entry is now through Membersplash. Haven't signed up yet? Click HERE.

** Nanny Passes and Legacy members cannot bring in guests! Nanny's can only come to the pool with their charges and no others.

** Need more guest passes? You can purchase more through your Membersplash account (there is a small convenience fee) or you can come to the office with cash or check and we can put them on your account. Passes are $2 per guest.

** If you are bringing in more than 10 guests in one day, you will need to come into the office with a guest list and prepay for all guests. If you have questions, please call the office!

Scooters - Path Etiquette

All scooter riders (and parents of scooter riders1) please remember that walkers ALWAYS have the right of way on our paths. Do not expect anyone to move off of the path for you - rather you need to step aside for them. Get off the path and wait for them to pass. Parents, please talk to your scooter riding kids! Please be courteous and respectful - much appreciated.

If You've Lost It, We've Probably Found It

We've collected quite an assortment of lost items in the FLCA office - from cell phones to keys to pickleball racquets. Please check with us if you've lost anything, we'd love to find their owners. We also keep a running list of anything you've lost (but hasn't been found yet) just in case it's turned into the office so we know who to contact.


Forest Lakes Rules and Regulations state that all event-based yard signs must be down within 7 days after the event. So if you've had a sign in your yard for too long, please take it down. Thanks!

Hello again everyone!

As we head to our first full month of summer, I wanted to recap what we had so far and what we can expect in July: 

June recap: 

1. We had a very fun social to kick off the first week of summer with our Forest Lakes juniors and adults on June 14. We had 18 players enjoy 4 rounds of tennis, snacks, and Popitos Pizza! Thank you to Lauren Zayas of Popitos for delivering the most delicious pizza! 

2. Another June event included our first Daytime all day Academy Camp! I thank all the kids for participating in our camp and those who took advantage of the daytime training clinics and match plays throughout the week!

3. We also hosted our first USTA Junior Tournament this past Friday with 51 kids. It was a hot one, but what a success! I look forward to seeing even more of our kids in the July and August USTA events. Also thanks to the team of Forest Lakes assistants who helped me monitor and lead the competitors through their matches. Ellie, Jessica, Amy, and Julia, without your help, it would not have run as smooth! I am always looking for volunteers for these events, so if you are interested, please email me. We have 2 more this summer (one in July and one in August). 

4. Claytech has been applied to all courts - they're looking good!

" Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time." —John Lubbock

Nola the Office Dog congratulates all the contestants and winners of the Forest Lakes Annual 4th of July Belly Flop Contest and thinks they are very, very brave and she wouldn't do that for a million treats!
