PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DON FURNACE:  Good day TCM, well summer’s gone and fall is
here. That means folks will begin to travel back to our park from their summer homes! Please
drive safely! Kathy and I will arrive on October 7th. Can’t wait to see all of you. The new water
lines are all in. There are a few water lines on the carports not hooked up yet. Waiting on
some special valves to come in. When they do, they will be installed! Also the trenches are
being leveled. The board realizes there will be some settling over the next few months, and
they will be addressed. Thank you for your patience! Also for the folks coming back, during
the water project your cable and phone lines may have been hit. If this is true for you, they will
be repaired at no cost to you! And last of all, the shuffle board courts overhangs have been
painted white, and Rhonda says they came out nicely! The clubhouse was opened on
September 23rd. Please wear your mask until you sit, stay 6’ apart, and wipe down your area
before you leave. If we follow these simple rules we will all be fine.

                                      LOVE & PRAYERS

Please remember the following residents in your prayers: Ruth Bandeen, Unit 424
(returned to her home in Michigan on September 9).
BERNIE AND SANDI SIKKEMA, UNIT 134 – Bernie had his old knee replacement replaced in
September and is beginning re-hab.  Sandi is experiencing loss of hearing and eyesight.  The
dying tumor is pressing on her brain stem.  New hearing aids are helping with her hearing, but
she is not able to focus with both eyes.  Hopefully these problems will decrease with further
treatment.
NINFA BAILEY, UNIT 139 – We extend our sincere sympathy to Jim and his family and all of
their friends and neighbors on the passing of Ninfa on September 14.
JOHN DANDER, UNIT 145 – spent several days during August in the hospital but has
returned home.
