Sandy Pines 50th Anniversary

We’re looking forward to 2021 and the 50th Anniversary of Sandy Pines. Planning is underway for the celebration and we're currently in the information gathering phase of looking for ideas of what members would like to see and do in 2021 to celebrate. Our initial thought is a year-long tribute to the park with special events scheduled throughout the summer and a big celebration in July.  If you are interested in helping or have ideas for our 50th Anniversary Celebration, please email our Park President jeff@sandypines.com.
