OH LORDY WHERE DID MY SUMMER GO? I can’t believe that its fall and another season is about to begin, OH MY. I hope that you have taken the time to look around the park and notice some of the changes. I’m sure some will say wonderful, great job and others will be disappointed. But just know that we all especially Dave and Adam have worked very hard in this miserable heat to make the improvement and changes. We didn’t get everything we wished for, but it will come. We were able to bring in 6 park models (all rented), A sports complex with a 40 by 60 pavilion, a small dog park, new shuffleboards, new horseshoes, new fire pit area, new event grill and a mobile kitchen for big events. We gave the clubhouse, restrooms & showers a fresh coat of paint, and no more green ceiling. Put in new dart machines, rearranged the counters. Removed the stage giving us more room for all events. No more falling off the stage at dinner, Lee Shoobridge-LOL
With making changes and improvement it’s always good to have your opinion on things. We have a “IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTION “box and would love to have your input as to changes. Are there other things we need that we have not thought about? Anything we should add to the sports complex? Would you like more park dinners now that we have a mobile kitchen? Breakfast every weekend or every day? This is your time to share your thoughts. I would appreciate your name on the slips in case I have questions or need more info, if not that’s ok too.
We welcome back Joe & Debra Herbig, Activity Directors, Pat & Dave Musto, and Gloria Rodriquez in housekeeping. Sandy is still with us in the office. New to the staff would be Adam Austin from IL. maintenance (yes, our youngest son). Doug & Vicki Schmid from WY, Doug in maintenance and Vicki in office. Dave & Pat Paschick from SD in housekeeping. With a full staff this year it should be an outstanding year.
You will find our calendar just keeps getting more and more placed on it. We’ll have some new stuff and a lots of the oldies but goodies. So always check your calendar, then check it again. You’ll not want to miss anything that’s happening here in the park.

(If you have an OLD flag that needs to be burned this is the time.

We need all the help we can get. Please take the time out to come and help, it’s a fun morning. A lite meal will be serviced for lunch for all the xmas volunteers.
So as you can see we didn’t hesitate to get right into the season. It’s going to be a great season, I’m excited.
Last of all, Dave & I are happy that you have made it safely to the park. It has been a longgggggg HOT summer, we all have worked very hard this summer and are anxious for the heat to go away and a fun filled season to start.
Always remember it never cost to share a smile but the rewards are endless.
