Winter is always one of our busiest times of the season as we’re busy maintaining all the buildings, structures, and amenities that are utilized by members, guests, and campers all summer long. One of our largest off season projects for the past few years has been updating water risers in each phase. Many of the old risers are in rough shape and can be very difficult and time consuming to replace, especially if they have been invaded by roots. Although it may be enticing to plant shrubbery near your water riser and/or your electrical boxes to mask them we do not recommend doing so as it can lead to long term difficulties. We have completed almost all of the water risers in Phase 4. The sites west of the tennis courts are not yet completed but will be wrapped up soon.
We recently installed new energy efficient LED lights in the Phase 1 Pavilion. We painted the Ropes Course to give it a fresh new look for 2020. We also replaced the carpet on the Recreation Station’s Mini Golf Course so don’t be surprised if you experience some increased ball speed during your next game.
As soon as weather permits, the playground near the Flea Market Area & Picnic Shelter will have new side walks around it with some additional equipment for your enjoyment. The new equipment was donated by a member driven and supported can drive. Thanks to all the volunteers and those who contributed to make it happen. Soon the entire community will be able to benefit from your efforts.
