Because Life is Better at the Lake

Shiloh on the Lake 4th Annual Thanksgiving Gathering


My name is Nicole Sprabary and I am a mom, first and foremost. I raise my children in the Cedar Creek Lake community and feel like a local. I am a freelance writer and blogger, wanting to speak truth and greatness into our community as a whole. I hope to put forth great information to members of our community both locals and weekenders as well as everyone in between.

Shiloh on the Lake is a unique, “hidden gem,” equipped with a camp ground, RV park and all around great spot to fish, play or just relax!

Elaine Crowell, manager of Shiloh on the Lake, had many praises from the community for how well she put together the 4th annual Thanksgiving gathering held on Saturday, November 18th.

Many guests have come from here in the Cedar Creek Lake area and some came from as far as Waco. All came to enjoy the company, delicious food, festivities and each guest brought canned food for the food drive as well as a side dish.

Most of the dishes were homemade with what can only be seen as a labor of love.

Guests enjoyed games outside like washers and a fall themed “set up” for a family picture right outside the entryway.

There were games inside like, “count the candy corn,” and many gift bags passed out through a raffle. One guest, Phyllis Norman, won a 20% off her regular monthly fee as well as a Turkey was given away.

The feel in the atmosphere when walking into the community center, was said that it, “feels like a family reunion.” There were no strangers and each person told a story of that feel being at Shiloh on the Lake, runs throughout the year.

Chris and Natasha Henderson brought friends from Sherman and the youngest two of their six children, Lilly and “Dizzy.” In conversation over the meal, they explained they frequent this place at least 5 times a year, all the way from Waco!

Chris expressed his sadness over there not being too many places where he feels his children are safe or that he can trust his kids playing outside the way he can here. Furthering that when they are here, not only do security drive around at night making sure the place is safe and sound, they bring firewood to each resident when they need.

Natasha, as any mother would, kept a watchful eye on her kiddos, but also had a relaxed feel while “strangers” helped her son, “Dizzy,” with an art project at the craft table set up for anyone wanting to make a memory.

Patricia Wilcox, resident, said the, “fishing is great and it is a very quiet place to stay.”

Misti Alexander, Guest Relations, said it is a, “great opportunity” and she feels, “very blessed to work with and be around good people.”

Shiloh on the Lake has many opportunities for recreation, relaxation and a beautiful event center available for reservations throughout the year. Call and reserve your spot now for “Light up the Park” in December in either a cabin, camp spot or bring your RV!
