New Directory Information
We are excited to have the new directory started this winter. We have so many new residents in the park and our old directory has now become obsolete. We are planning a way to be able to keep it up to date more easily. There will be scheduled dates for your photograph. We need everyone to bring the cover only from the old directory at that time, as we will be using them again to help reduce the expenses. These pictures will be done by a professional photographer at no charge to you. So get all gussied up for a great picture. If you like your picture, check with the photographer on how to order them. More information will be posted as we get closer to setting up the schedules.
