This is the boys third year doing this, coming out on top two years in a row raising $20 000 in those two years. They have had support from our subdivision before so if they could donate bottles and a money donations are accepted as well!
All money raised goes back to the community.

Sheldrake Lake Community Maple Project

What could be more Canadian than maple syrup?
When the daytime temperatures are above zero but the nights remain frosty, Canadians know it’s time for the sweet treat that is naturally made in our own backyards. One of the great things about our backyards is that it is filled with maple trees and it is the goal of the Sheldrake Lake Home Owners Association to tap our community.

The Sheldrake Lake Community Maple Project hopes to tap over 30 trees this spring. This community project will engage our families and educate our children with workshops on how to tap, boil and develop an understanding of the value of maple syrup in our communities. With no cost to the homeowners, each participant will be given a Maple Tree tapping kit and information on how to get started.

If interested, please reply to this email or attend or meeting March 30th 2015 at 7:30PM at 111 Mallard Drive.

holiday-christmasBest wishes to you and your family for the holidays.

Another exciting year for Sheldrake Lake will come to an end and we want to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support of our association and its commitment to our community.

The men and women on our association are quietly doing the many jobs that insure that our community spirit is maintained and embrace. The association has made great achievement this year, which was not possible without the board volunteers and cooperation of everyone in Sheldrake Lake.

We hope that you and your family experience a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year and continue to find gratitude, peace and enjoyment in all of your endeavours in the coming year.

Happy Halloween

I wish to commend the hard work of our Homeowners Association and the volunteers for enthusiastically collaborating once again to stage another great halloween party this year. Also, I would like to thank HRM District 13 Councillor Matt Whitman for his sponsorship and support of our community event.


Throughout the years, our subdivision has had resoundingly successful events in our park and our Halloween Party is another example of the community spirit that runs deep in our subdivision.

During the planning meetings, and while at the event, a few suggested a Christmas Party or other winter events in the park. I welcome any ideas or suggestions and would like to bring everyone together in November to discuss further and make plans. Please let me know what you think and forward your ideas and thoughts.


Happy Halloween,

John Bignell
