The New Park & Garden Store

By Jack Schmidt

It is hard to believe that we are already at the July 4th holiday. The summer is moving fast.

We have been working hard at getting items that are needed by the members in the park. We have added some new items. We now have smoker chips, bag mulch in Red, Brown and Black, and Bagged Top Soil. If you bought these items in bulk before, you will find you get more for the same price in the bags. I got the black mulch for those of you who have been asking. The bags are $3 for one and three for $8.88.

We are still working at delivering stone and bulk much to the sites. We ask that you give us 24 hour notice for deliveries. There are times when we can deliver on the same day but it is a help if you give us 24 hours notice.

If you haven’t had you boat put in the lake yet we can still accommodate you. The charge is $30 for one way and $55 for in and out. Call the store (616-896-9334) to make an appointment.

We have a record number of softeners placed in the park this year even though COVID has caused us some problems. We still have a few available so if you are looking for a way to keep
the rust out of the trailer give us a call and we will be glad to help you out.

A reminder to all members wanting to rent a golf cart: The holidays fill up very fast and usually two weeks ahead of time we are completely booked. The six passenger carts are out first. Call (616- 896-9888) to make you golf cart reservation. We are requesting all camping guests and guests of member to bring their gate pass card and PSO car registration slip to verify your reservation. The rental office is open from 9 am to 4 pm and we extend the hours on Friday to 7 pm.

The marina is working hard filling the boats with fuel and we still have Double Kayaks, Single Kayaks, Paddleboards and rowboats for rent. They are rented on a first come first serve basis during marina hours. Wednesday and Friday – 5 pm to 8 pm; and Saturday and Sunday Noon to 5 pm. If you want to rent a watercraft at other times come to the Park and Garden Rental Office and we will schedule your rental.

A special thank you to the Park and Garden staff for all the hard work this year. Chet Ryan, John Glass, Dale Yoder, Carol Brower, Barb Glass, Hunter Collison, Gabi Mulholland, and Tula Walther.
