From the General Manager
The July 4th holiday and the month of July is always an exciting and busy time in StillWaters. Many families take their summer vacations at StillWaters and Lake Martin during the month of July. Welcome to StillWaters; I hope you enjoy your time here.
StillWaters has plenty of vacation activities for everyone to enjoy. Moonbrook Park offers owners and guests a place to have a summer picnic or for children to play. The tennis courts are great to get in your daily exercise while enjoying a competitive tennis match. For golfers, the StillWaters Golf Club is always open and offers a challenging course. Harbor Pointe Marina has boats for sale or rent. You can walk, run, or bike on all StillWaters roads and of course there is beautiful Lake Martin.
The annual Lake Martin fireworks display will be at the Lake Martin Amphitheater located at 8878 Kowaliga Rd, Eclectic, AL 36024. The fireworks are scheduled to begin at 9pm on July 4th. There is plenty of parking at the amphitheater. If you own a boat or, better yet, have a friend with a boat, you may want to watch the fireworks from the water. The fireworks can be seen in almost any area of Kowaliga Bay. It is a fireworks display you will not want to miss.
There is an article in this newsletter that explains the SWRA fireworks policy. The State of Alabama fireworks code was adopted by SWRA. The code basically states that fireworks cannot be ignited or exploded within 600 feet of an enclosed building. With all the houses, condominiums, and other buildings in StillWaters there is not a safe location that is 600 feet from an enclosed building.
On Saturday, July 5th Harbor Pointe Marina in StillWaters will host a free concert at the marina. The band, “Renegade” will start around 7pm and end around 11pm. While you are at the marina check out their inventory of boats for sale. The marina also offers boat rentals and the ship’s store is stocked with a wide variety of merchandise.
There are a few weekend dates left during the summer months to reserve the SWRA community room and deck for a party, wedding, or family reunion. The new deck expands the available space and offers your guests a place to enjoy the outdoors. Tables and chairs are included in the rental price of the SWRA community room and deck.
I appreciate all the recent suggestions, concerns, and comments concerning the landscaping in StillWaters. I am diligently working to resolve the landscape deficiencies with our landscape contractor. A plan has been formulated by our landscape contractor to rectify the deficiencies and I am sure the contractor will soon have all the roadways and other common areas back to the level of beauty we expect in StillWaters. Thank you for your patience with this matter.
I hope you enjoy this time of year at StillWaters and Lake Martin with family and friends. This is the time of year when memories that last a lifetime are created. We have a beautiful and friendly community; thank you for being a part of it.
Kevin Eason, General Manager
