SHERRY LISCHER, UNIT 104 – went to the hospital by ambulance on April 20 with breathing

administered directly into the clots.  She is now at home with oral blood thinner.

moved to his bones but has not invaded any major organs.  He will soon begin chemo and
immune therapy.
SANDI SIKKEMA, UNIT 134 – is continuing with various tests to check the condition of her
retinas and results of chemo and radiation as well as removal of stitches in her head.  After all

Please help the mowers out by spraying weed killer or placing blocks to protect your
downspouts and siding.  Thank you to all that filled out the summer leaving papers.  It helps
to know who is taking care of your homes and saves the park money on sending letters to
you.  Thank you, for all the prayers for Dave and I in our time of need, PLEASE keep them
coming.  Have a wonderful summer and see you in the fall.  Please mail your maintenance
payments and coupons directly.
SOLICITORS: Can take real advantage of you.  If someone comes to your door trying to sell
you a service, ask them to leave immediately. Promptly report the incident to the park
manager giving a description of the vehicle and the direction it leaves.

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ (mrnormlk@gmail.com):
Spring has arrived, and I hope all who have traveled north have had a good trip.  To those
yet to start home, I wish you safe travels.
Through the end of March our income and expenses were both within acceptable variance
to the budget, and our cash balance remains good.  Our Annual Review of the 2018
financial statements has been completed and reported at the Annual Shareholders’
Meeting.  While we have not expensed any Betterments and Major Improvements as yet, we
have had the Community Building floor maintained and every sidewalk in the park has been
power washed.  
As always, you may see a copy of the full financial reports from the TCM office.  I encourage
you to stop by and review them.
