Letters From The Lakeside
Fall 2023

From the desk of the President…

I hope this letter finds everyone enjoying the last few days of summer while adjusting to school schedules. I won’t mention weather as I may jinx us again, but I am enjoying it. 

I wanted to let everyone know that the diving board stand has been replaced, and the diving board reattached. I know I have personally enjoyed having it back. The diving board will be resurfaced during the off season. The pool officially closed the evening of Sunday, September 10th. 

If you would like to serve our community by being on the board please let us know. We will have some vacancies by the end of this year and would love your help.

Please mark your calendar for Saturday, October 21st. This is our neighborhood clean-up day and we could really use your help. More details on equipment needed and projects to come. 

I hope everyone is as excited as I am about college football starting. Please keep an eye out on our website and Facebook group for upcoming gameday events.

Thank you for being a part of our community.

God Bless,

Jerre Schweigert

P.S. Go Tigers!

The board would like to ask all residents to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for any wildlife. We recommend keeping a close watch of your animals and kids when they are outside, especially at night and teach them safety measures on how to respond to any situation that may arise. As a reminder, please do not feed strays or any wild animals. We ask that you report any sightings to Animal Control or the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and our neighborhood board. If possible and safe, please take pictures and/or videos and email them to us.

Tips & Safety Measures

Keep all trash and garbage containers secure as they attract animals

Install motion sensor lighting

Temporarily remove bird feeders 

If you have a fence, keep gates closed

Spread cayenne pepper or ammonia around your yard as a deterrent 

If you see a black bear - run, make loud noises, bang pots/pans together or use an air horn

If you see a coyote - back away slowly, keep eye contact, spray it with water (they hate getting wet), clap hands, whistle, use flashing lights or throw stuff at it.

Keep all doors to house and cars locked.

Thank you,

Heritage Lakes HOA Board

Saturday, October 28
Meet us at the bridge to Trick or Treat Around the Trail. Movie on the lawn at dark afterward.

Community Work Day, October 21
Plan to meet at the clubhouse patio at 9:00 am. Brian always has a sign up list for fall clean up tasks ranging from pruning to painting and more.


Fall is a great time to fertilize your lawn for next spring.  Most professionals recommend a Weed and Feed to get a jumpstart on pre-emergent weeds.

Prune dead growth out of your bushes and flower beds and plant spring bulbs.

Sow winter rye grass seed for a green lawn all winter - but it does mean you’ll have to keep the mower up and running

Look for dark spots around your exterior and install solar lights to add a little soft lighting to your yard

Decorate for the season.  It makes a huge difference to all of us!
