Gone But Not Forgotton

It was a sad this Tuesday when the Meadows By The Lake (AKA Club Med or The Meadows) met the wreaking ball. Many of us who have spent time at Lake Erie Country Club also took time to enjoy the neighbourhood establishment. Always cold beer on tap. A great selection of food and of course good company. The Windsor Star featured an article about the fire. CKLW News has an interview with Wayne Jahn, the former owner of the Meadows by the Lake. Blackburn News also had an article on its future. Read an update in the River Town Times. It is expected to be rebuilt. Not soon enough for many of us.

Skunk Patrol

Spring is almost here and so are the critters. The past few years we have been lucky to have very few skunks. It appears that this year may be different because of the mild winter. Skunks have been spotted around the Clubhouse. Be cautious when walking your pets.

♫ Ooooh that smell

Can't you smell that smell

Ooooh that smell

The smell of skunk surrounds you! ♫
