Next B.O.D. Monthly Meeting:  TBD, 9 a.m.
Meetings are open to TCM shareholders only.
PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
Well, the pool has finally been completed. I'm sure this was welcome news for all of our full-
time residents. I understand the pool looks nice, and I trust it has been worth the wait. The
pavers around the pool deck have also been recently treated, and so this area should be very
attractive. The clubhouse has received a fresh coat of paint.
The Board has changed contractors for our lawn maintenance needs. G&S no longer wanted
to do it. Luxury Lawn Maintenance has been hired. Terms of the contract are very similar to
the previous one with G&S and the cost remains the same as well.
Our thoughts go out to Don Hawkins and family on the loss of Carol.
We snow birds are all one month closer to heading back to our favorite Park.  Hooray!!.
NEWS FROM THE REC. BOARD

Now is the time to be
thinking about what you would like to donate toward our annual Make-it, Bake-it, Sew-it, Grow-
it Auction.  It is exactly what the title indicates.  Anything you make would be a good item to
donate.  If you don’t consider yourself crafty, you can always donate a baked item. As is our
custom, we will hold the auction on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving (November 24).  The
proceeds will be used for park activities. Please note:  We will not accept store-bought items
that have been in your possession for a period of time.  These items should be donated to
the Rummage Sale in January.  For more information, please contact Joyce Everly at 941-723-

THE MICHIGAN REUNION  was held on August 7 in Charlotte, MI at Eaton Place owned by
Bruce and Deanne Davis.  We had 32 people attend this year.  Bruce and Deanne were
traveling in Alaska, but Sharon Arnold came down from upper Michigan to oversee our
dinner.  We were well taken care of by Sharon and the staff.  The buffet was wonderful, and
Sandy Thomas and I can attest to the fact that the Butterscotch pie was so very good.  Phyllis
Rollinson, 364, is new to our park, and she ordered the peanut butter pie and said it was
equally good.  Those that attended this year include:  Dale and Sandy Hunter, Dave and Judi
Renkenberger, Jerry and Jo Thielen, Ann and Red Kees, Bob and Lorraine Haas, Mike
Wesley, Ron and Sandy Thomas, Jerry and Barb Freeburn, Paul and Elaine Kalbarczyk,
Tracy and Jeanne Bolenbaugh, Gerald and Patti Berkey, Ron and Cindy Bowman, Shirley
Morley, Shirley Kempton, Gayle Shilling, Cynthia Philo, Donna Burch, Sally Ford, Sharon
Arnold, Phyllis Rollinson, and Lynn Searles.
We want to thank all of the wait staff, Sharon, and Bruce and Deanne for having our reunion
and for taking such good care of us.  Thank you also for all those that made the trip to Eaton
Place.
THE “MINI” MINNESOTA REUNION was held on Sunday, August 25 at the 400 Club in St.
Cloud.  It was excitedly attended by Gloria and Dave Quast and Diane Kron.  Bigger and
better things are planned for next year!
MONDAY AFTERNOON BIBLE STUDY.  We continue to meet in the library every week at 1:
00 p.m., but we'd love to re-invite any as they come back to the park in Autumn.  
Jesus says,  "Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest."  
We are studying the Bible to understand Jesus' teachings and how to find that rest.   Jesus
continues "Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden light."

TREASURER-AT-LARGE  REPORT – NORM KURTZ (mrnormlk@gmail.com):
I hope that everyone has been enjoying the summer.  It sure seems to go by fast, but I do
enjoy the fresh tomatoes that are in abundance now.
Our finances are still consistent with the budget.  Even with the ‘Betterment and Major
Improvements’ expenses (new office desk, pool renovation and clubhouse painting), we
continue to maintain a good cash position.
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.
