Today Aquatic Services harvested the lake weeds in the swim area at the Park. We have 90% improvement. At least according to the children.
Thanks to Larry Gauthier for the negotiations which garnered us the additional weed services!
Your JAC is very grateful!
As we approach the middle of the summer the JAC would like to ask our community members to take a minute to review the rules posted at the park.
We have volunteers helping to raise money for our park by returning cans from the returnables bin. Please do not place trash in the returnables bin. We have 2 large garbage bins that are in the picnic area. If the garbage bins are not in the picnic area they have been placed out at the road for pickup by park volunteers. Please bring your trash out to the bins and not thrown in the fireplace or the returnables bin.
Please be courteous of others when bringing animals to the park. Our priority rules currently state that there are: No unattended animals. No animals in the beach area. Please clean up after your pets. No animals Friday-Sunday or on Holidays.
Thank you and have a great summer!
A cable has replaced the chain at the Park gate.
This is much lighter and easier to use. Please utilize the hook on the opposite post to hold the cable post when driving vehicles through.
Have a GREAT July 4th weekend!
There will be a JAC meeting this Monday evening, the 29th, 6:30 at the park.
On the Agenda,
Hope to see you there.
The Washtenaw County Public Works Division has been requested by lake communities in northern Washtenaw and southern Livingston Counties to undertake a lake management program to control invasive weeds. This project will provide improvements to the Chain of Lakes by controlling invasive and nuisance weeds through the application of herbicides to the water and mechanical weed harvesting.
Aquatic Services will be treating Strawberry Lake all day Thursday, June 18th. Please do not use the lake until Friday!

Now that we can redeem our returnable cans and bottles, the JAC is looking for a/some volunteers to empty the returnables barrel at the park, redeem for cash and turn in to the JAC Treasurer. The barrel proved valuable additional revenue for the JAC’s many improvements and social gatherings. If you can help please contact Nancy Greko 810-772-0352 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to all!
Hamburg Township Senior Center has advised us they are not allowing meetings this month due to the pandemic. Your HOA board has decided to not try and reschedule this meeting. We will follow up with a newsletter in the upcoming weeks to address topics that would have been discussed at our meeting. If you have a question or concern that needs to be addressed by your HOA board, please contact any of our board members.
Now that the Park season is well underway, please refer to the Park Courtesy Rules posted both at the Park and on the website (http://www.strawberryhillestates.org/download/park_and_access_committee/Courtesy-Rules-for-Strawberry-Lake-Park-rev-042517-final.pdf).
- No trash in the fire pit
- Re-lock the chain when entering and exiting. Hooking the chain is not re-locking.
- Sand toys to be placed back in the toy box.
We do not have a cleaning service at the park, we all have to do our part and cleanup after ourselves.
Thank you and have a great summer.
The JAC has purchased 3 new Park Benches to be installed along the shore of our Park. These will provide an opportunity to sit and view our beautiful lake and leave the picnic tables for families. They will arrive in approximately 3 weeks however we will need 3-4 strong volunteers to take them off the truck. The driver will not do this.
If you could help with this please notify:
