May 8 LGA Shred Event

Same place as last year.  RWVFD parking lot and begins at 10:00 AM.

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Jack Saunders on February 8, 2021. Jack was a pillar of the Lake Gaston community contributing his talents and time to many organizations in the Lake Gaston area. For the LGA, he was an invaluable member of our team, not only a member of the LGA Board of Directors, he was our Treasurer, and chair of our Public Safety Committee. 

More importantly, Jack was a close and dear friend. Jack’s spirit of friendliness, caring, and community giving will live on through his influence on all of us. 

We are all thankful for the opportunity to have worked with and alongside him. We truly will miss him, but will never forget him.

Our next meeting will be at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 via Zoom.  This will be the new normal until we can safely get together.  Our speaker will be Leanne Patrick, the new President//CEO of the Lake Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce.   I'm sure Leanne will share her vision for the lake area.  We will have the usual committe reports and the usual Concerns/Questions and Q&A.  More details to come.

If you would like to attend, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and you will be sent the Zoom meeting link.

Good news!  We aren't talking about postponing a meeting.   December 2 at 8:30 AM we will hold our first ever Membership meeting by Zoom.  More derails forthcoming.  In the meantime, if you aren't already using Zoom, visit zoom.com to register for a free account.  You will also have the option to join by using the telephone   

We don't know when we can meet face to face.  This is the next best thing.

We hope you will join us next year.  Thanks to all who made donations in support of the LGA.

The Lake Gaston Association will sponsor its Sixth Annual Community Paper Shred on Saturday, Sep 19th from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The collection will be accomplished in the lower parking area at the Roanoke-Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department at 790 Lizard Creek Rd. The service is free to the public but contributions will be gratefully accepted. 

Items to be shredded can include any old paper records; staples and paper clips need not be removed, but please no three ring binders or heavy metal clamps. No computer memory discs or thumb drives. We can accept any amounts of paper for shredding that can be processed in the time period. 

The truck mounted shredder consumes about 10 book boxes/cases of paper every 8 minutes.   People can stand and watch while the paper is shredded.  The shredding is professional grade and is the same level of shredding contracted by banking institutions.
