PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
I hope this September Newsletter finds everyone enjoying the last of the summer weather. It
surely won't be long before many of us start turning our thoughts to Terra Ceia. I believe the
Park to be relatively quiet right now. I further believe one of the reasons for this is the efforts
of our office manager - Susan Bradshaw, and our two Board members Bob and Tom. Thank
you for all you do.

MICHIGAN REUNION - The 2018 Michigan Reunion was held on Wednesday, August 8, at
Eaton Place in Charlotte, MI.  Owned by Bruce and Deanne Davis, who put on a wonderful
soup/salad bar and buffet for us, we had 35 attendees this year.  We missed anyone that
was unable to attend.  You missed a very wonderful day.  After dinner, Deanne took us on a
tour of the brewery and at each station the process was explained by the attendant.  They
even have a gluten free beer for those with gluten intolerance.  We then went to the Pub, sat
at the bar and sampled a number of different beers.  It was fun to check the menu to see
what sounded good, and the bartender was very kind to suggest a beer that was what we
were looking for.  It was a wonderful day, and we appreciate all that Bruce and Deanne did
for us. This year's attendance included:  Donna Burch, Sally Ford, Bernie and Sandi
Sikkema, Dave and Judi Renkenberger, Ron and Cindy Bowman, Sandy and Ron Thomas,
Nancy Dixon, Jerry and Barbara Freeburn, Jerry and Jo Thielen, Paul and Elaine Kalbarczyk,
Bob and Lorraine Haas, Dave and Linda Vandenberg, Gerald and Patti Berkey, Dale and
Sandy Hunter, Shirley Morley, Gayle Shilling, Shirley Kempton, Carol Arbour, Barb Ozbun,
and Odis and Pat Rodgers, and Bruce (who is suffering from pneumonia and just spent a few
minutes with us before heading to the doctor) and Deanne Davis, and myself.  Thank you to
all who came to make this year's reunion a huge success.  It was great to see everyone,
especially some of our former TCM residents!  See you the end of October, Lynn Searles

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ:
•        Our cash position shows a slight increase as our year to date (7/31/18) income and
expenses remain favorable to the budget.
•        Income was slightly better than projected in the budget.
•        Our operating expenses are favorable due partly to the lower expense for utilities.
•        There were no Park Betterment and/or Major Improvement recorded last month.
I hope that you all are having a great summer and look forward to seeing you in the fall.
