As we enter the month of November, the park is much quieter. The members have packed up and headed to different locations until we can again return to our Happy Place. It is during this time away from Sandy Pines that we can appreciate all the things that we enjoy most. “It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.” I encourage you to be thankful each day for something and spread happiness until we all meet again.

We Appreciate All of You

I truly appreciate each member who says hello to the Rec Department staff and tries to get to know the employees and make them feel special. We all appreciate the kind lady who brings us brownie treats a couple times each summer! The rec staff enjoys getting colored pictures, notes, and special homemade items from the kids in the park. Saying thank you after a lesson or helping pick up balls is appreciated. It is the small acts of kindness that go so far and reflect who we are as Sandy Pines members as many of the staff are not members of the park.

We at Rec. Department appreciate other departments and teams as well. The maintenance staff does a phenomenal job at keeping our park clean and beautiful and up to date with improvements and new structures. They keep the pools clean and bathrooms nice. We appreciate those who help communicate events and hang up flyers. We appreciate member service for answering the phones and questions from members. We appreciate public safety for responding to injuries in the park and providing care. We appreciate the administration team for leading us, supporting us, and providing us the opportunities to continue to enjoy Sandy Pines.
