While out and about, keep a watch for those coming and going. Between the months of May and July, we have had four documented break-ins. The Sheriff’s office was called and is still working the current cases. While the items taken may have been slight in nature, the violation of somebody’s home is not. Currently we have a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those said criminals. If you come across something that just isn’t right, call the Warren county Sheriff’s office at (252) 257-3364 or by dialing 911.

2017 Independence Day Celebration!

Just a Reminder!!!

This year’s Independence Day celebration will be held on July 1st.  Since this holiday is not providing a three-day-weekend, all festivities will be packed into one fun-filled day.  The monthly board meeting will be held at the pavilion at 8:00 A.M.  The golf cart parade starts at 10:00 A.M. (line-up starts at 9:30).  Be sure to decorate creatively, as prizes will be awarded!

The BOD will be sponsoring a lunch on Saturday afternoon beginning at 1:00 P.M.  Hamburgers and hotdogs will be served for lunch… Please bring a dish to share and your favorite beverage to join in the festivities.  Don’t forget your swim trunks or bikinis :-) and floats to enjoy the music from the lake! We have booked “A Little R & N DJ Service” for your listening pleasure!

The fireworks will start at dusk Saturday evening for truly, an Independence Day Fireworks display to remember! This show, sponsored by the Longbridge Volunteer Fire Department can be seen from either side of the bridge and usually draws hundreds of boats.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
