Weekend Recap - Supporting Local

Over the past weekend, our Homeowners were busy supporting the local community. On Saturday morning, a group of Homeowners helped clean up Shook Cove Road. They picked up several bags of trash, improving the already beautiful drive to Bear Lake Reserve. 

Saturday afternoon, our Homeowners showed their support for Western's football team by tailgating and cheering them on at one of their last home games of the season. 

Sylva Shopping Support Group raised funds to supply 66 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need. Over half of the meals were funded by donations from Bear  Lake Reserve owners! Thank you to Mike Whitmer for bringing this local charity to our attention, and thank you to everyone who donated.

Please join us this Saturday for our last lake clean-up of the year. We will be out on the water from 10am - 12pm hunting trash! Please RSVP with
