A magical place, the Lake Caroline community welcomes you to a lifestyle where family is celebrated, and good neighbors become lifelong friends. Lake Caroline is a 3,000-acre planned community with resort style amenities. Residents enjoy walking in an 11-acre park, boating and fishing on the second largest, private lake in Mississippi, and golfing on a championship golf course. And because the land was developed with wildlife in mind, Lake Caroline is home to pelicans, herons, bald eagles, and deer, making it a haven for nature lovers.

What’s New
A Perfect Night ‘Grillin’
A clear sky, crisp fall evening with a full moon rising over the lake added to a delightful evening hosted at the lakeside home of Clark and Jana Ethridge. During the sold-out class, grill master Clark shared his years of learning experiences cooking on the Big Green Egg. Neighbors learned basics on setting the fire, techniques for cooking low and slow, where to find Clark’s favorite seasonings and rubs, and how to cook multiple food items.
 
The evening started off with smoked cheese and jalapeno popper appetizers and was followed by pulled pork, Korean flanken short ribs, reverse-seared strip steaks and a grilled pizza. The class was sponsored by our Caroline Creators group. Explore your creative side by signing up for future classes as they are announced in News Notes.

Caroline Creators to Offer Flower Arranging Class
In this floral design class, students will make two different holiday arrangements to take home and enjoy! The first will be sliced citrus fruit in a clear glass rose bowl that will allow the fresh arrangement to transition from Thanksgiving into the Christmas season. 
 
The second arrangement will be a Christmas greens centerpiece with a candle for your dining room or kitchen table. Both arrangements should take you into December.
 
 
This floral class will be led by Lake Caroline neighbor Nancy Lehman.  Nancy has extensive experience in the floral industry, including 12 years as the owner of Personal Touch Flowers in Madison. Space is limited so register early.

We Need Help
Volunteers are needed to welcome new neighbors to Lake Caroline. Our greatest need is for volunteers living in The Shores, Villas of Bridgewater, Hampton Ridge and Camden Pointe but we can use volunteers from any neighborhood. The Welcome Committee made 21 visits to newcomers this month but with most members visiting in pairs, several dozen volunteers were required.
 
If you want to volunteer, please complete a Contact Us request by clicking here. The time commitment is estimated to be 1-5 hours per month, with volunteers deciding each month how much time to commit. Members deliver a welcome bag and a checklist to help new neighbors learn about the association and register with the website for community news. 
 
Wine club – November 5
The next Wine Club meeting will be Friday, November 5 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Martinique clubhouse and outside by the pool. Please being a bottle of wine and an appetizer to share. Members who plan to attend must register for the event, thus each person must register separately using their own login credentials. Answer each of the 3 questions until you see a Completed message.

Lake Level Lowered

The lake level had to be lowered to prepare for a new drainage culvert. As of October 22, the lake level is 15.6 inches below full pool. Madison County will install the culvert at Caroline Boulevard between the park and the lake the week of October 25. The new culvert is twice the size of the existing culvert and should help relieve flash flooding that occurs in the park. The lower level is a temporary situation.
