We need volunteers for the gourmet committees for November, December and April. Won’t you please help our community have the best Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners?

The pool needs a new cover and this can not be purchased until all the board members are here to have the purchase approved. With the cooler evenings the water is getting colder and there is no heat turned on. The float value is not working properly and therefore the pool has way too much water and everything has been turned off. Apparently the pool people need authorization to fix or repair any problems with the pool.

Lon gave Sylvia Epson and Linda Price a big thank you for all the work they did this summer with all the dinners we had in the park.

A big thank you to Lon and Rachel for all the work they have done this summer.
