Countryside Lake Conservation Area Volunteer Day

posted Apr 18, 2018, 8:49 AM by Brian Donahoe

Please come...we can really use your help!!

Saturday, May 5, from 9-12

Please join us for our first volunteer day of the year. It will be a great way to help your community and get some exercise while spending time with your neighbors. We will be spreading wood chips on the paths, removing fallen branches and pulling buckthorn, garlic mustard and other invasive species.  Wheelbarrows and shovels will be provided but if you have some to bring I’m sure we will be able to use them!

Join us at the Conservation Area (next to the beach) to help with this effort! Bring your own heavy duty gloves and bug spray. Please help us spread the word as we do not have e-mails for all CLA members. This would also be a great opportunity for any young people needing service hours!!

Any questions? Call:

Please find attached the March newsletter.  We hope you are enjoying them.  If you have any information you would like to contribute please let us know.  Some of the long time residences might know of fun or interesting facts about our community.  It would be nice to share some of that information with our newer members.  Also, if you have any life events you would like to share with the community, this is a great way to spread the word.

We also wanted to remind everyone of the Annual meeting this Monday, March 19, at 7pm.  It will be held at Countryside Fire Station 1 (same as the Board meetings).  If you are unable to make it to the meeting, please send in your proxy.  If you have misplaced your proxy and would like a new one, please email us at  

Have a wonderful day!

Semi-annual CLA meeting

posted Oct 12, 2017, 6:12 AM by Brian Donahoe

for CLA members will be held on Monday October 16, 2017 at 7:30 pm.  The meeting location is at Countryside Oaks Clubhouse 26575 Middleton Pkwy, Mundelein.  You should have already received your notice in the mail along with your proxy, rules & regulations, The Informer and directory.  Please contact me if you did not receive it.

 If you are not planning to attend the meeting in person, please send in your proxy so it will be received no later than Monday October 16th.  We need 70 members to form a quorum and have a meeting, that can either be via proxy or in person.  The membership meetings are a great place to see neighbors and find out what is going on within our community.

 I hope you enjoyed "The Informer".  The dates of the semi-annual and annual meeting are incorrect.   The dates are printed correctly on the meeting notices and in the directory.  I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

There is an open house meeting to discuss the building of a cell tower near the Countryside Golf Course maintenance building.  If you would like to attend this open house, it is scheduled for October 18th from 5 - 7 pm at Mundelein High School. 

Lastly, I wanted to remind everyone about Board elections taking place at the Annual meeting in March.  If you are interested in running for a director position or would like to learn more about it and the process, please contact the Board at    

Beach back open

posted Sep 7, 2017, 7:58 AM by Brian Donahoe   [ updated Sep 7, 2017, 7:59 AM ]

Lake County tested the beach this morning and tests came back good.  This means that the beach is open to members and their guests, however there is no lifeguard on duty.  With Labor Day behind us, Lake County will no longer be testing our beach for the 2017 season for E-coli. 

Testing for 2018 will resume starting Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.  The Board will work to keep the membership informed of any beach closures both via email and the physical sign at the beach. 

We are continuing to research options to detour the geese from the beach area.
