park residents - please read

Dear Park Residents,

In the last couple of days the maintenance crew has had some issues with the sewer system in the park. They are finding that grease from cooking has been getting the lines clogged and backing up the flow of water. We kindly ask that you do not put grease down the sink to prevent this problem. An old coffee can with a lid that can be disposed of when full can be used instead. We appreciate all of the help we can get in this matter.

If you have any questions please feel free you give us a call at 239-472-1433.

Thank you,
Park Staff

Canadian checks now accepted

To all our campers and residents, We are pleased to announce that we are now able to again accept Canadian checks from Canadian banks. The checks must be in US funds or we can not accept them. We went to our bank and discussed how inconvenient this was for our Canadian visitors. As a result they figured out on their end how to help us make this work. We hope that this helps make your visit a little less stressful and will encourage more Canadian tourists to visit.

Thank you for your continued support.

building a landmark

My Daughter Madelyn Muench had an assignment for world geography to build a land mark in London. She picked the London Tower Bridge. This is what it looked like finished. I would like to thank Jerry Edelman and Maryann Daly for the clay they supplied us with and also Pat and John Guyette for the many ideas they gave me to give to her. There was also a lengthy report due with this project and her dad and I are so proud of her for starting on this the day it was assigned. It took 3 weeks to finish.

Libby's weekly bird update

Libby's Weekly Bird Update

Parrots 101 - We have had a cold spell & the parrots were indoors from
Monday through Wednesday. Sami as always was wonderful in helping to give them time outside on Wednesday & putting them back in for Wednesday night. Thursday we put them outside & cleaned all 20 cages. Claire was a great help as well. G.W. from Jerry's was a terrific bird letting me trim his toenails & clip his wings. Caesar from Jerry's was, as usual, a menace & extremely noisy. Miss Libby will be away on a cruise from January 7-17 so drop by & say hello to the parrots as there will be no show for 10 days.

Thank you

mardi gras update

To All Park Residents:

This year's Mardi Gras is not being cancelled by the Park. The parade was always organized by the Park residents and the Park provided the picnic. In past years a committee was formed to work out all the parade details. A new committee will need to be formed and a chairperson or Co-Chairs will need to contact me to arrange for this event.

We intend to have the picnic on Fat Tuesday, February 21, 2012 even if a parade is not happening this year. Looking forward to meeting with the new committee as soon as possible.
