Thank you to all who took the time to share your great ideas for the 50th Anniversary celebration in 2021.  We have so many good ideas!!!!  Wish this great pool of creativity was available for all the events I plan.  So grateful for your positive energy!

Our next steps will be to assess all the ideas presented and consider the financial, volunteer, sponsorship and other resources needed to support them.  Once this is complete, we will start assembling a planning committee with member volunteers to assist in planning for the activities.  Wanna join the volunteer planning team?  Express your interest by emailing me at

Over the next few months, we will be looking to gather a good-sized collection of photos from the past 50 years at the park to be used for a variety of purposes for the celebration.  Watch for communication to come out in late September for a place for you to post the pictures for use. In the meantime, check out your old and new picture sources – album books, memory boxes, and digital libraries – for your favorite pics that mark the uniqueness and joy that Sandy Pines has brought over the past half-century.

2020 will be a big year of planning with the goal of executing starting in January of 2021.

In the meantime, continue to check out the 50th Anniversary page for fun historical items (timelines, videos, stories etc) and updates on planning for the big year.

Thanks again for your contributions!

Until next time,

Marcie Palmer
