THE ACORN

MANAGER’S REPORT

I’d like to thank everyone for a good season and wish everyone safe travels to those who are returning to their other homes. I would like to ask all property owners that will be heading out, to please secure everything around your property.  Most of all remember SOCIAL DISTANCING while staying here in Florida. I hope everyone has a SAFE and healthy Summer. —-Ron Zobel—Park Manager.

FROM THE FRONT OFFICE:

A Reminder to all OWNERS to please let the office know when you are leaving the Park for the season. This helps with our mail outs going to the correct address and you receiving it at your Northern home.    Everyone stay safe and healthy.    Thank You, —–   Kathy

LADIES LUNCH

For the first time in all these years, I had to cancel ladies’ lunch in March because of the coronavirus.  If possible, and the restaurants are open, we will have Ladies Lunch on the 3rd Wednesday of April. Jol Creech

TUESDAY BRIDGE

Our March Bridge Stars are:  3/3:  Sally Peterson and Barb Christensen; 3/10:  Judy Hawken and Pat Taylor.   Then, COVID-19 scored a “GRAND SLAM” cancelling the balance of our season. Hope you all will return next Fall/Winter. Have a safe, healthy, and FUN summer.  Thanks to all who participated in TUESDAY BRIDGE.

BLOOD MOBILE

We had a successful blood drive on March 26., 17 donors were able to give out of 22 folks that tried.  OneBlood only allowed 3 donors on the bus at one time.  When donors arrived, their temperature was taken.  If anyone was above normal, they were thanked and sent home.  To avoid crowds, we took names and phone numbers and they were called when there was room on the bus.  It sure worked great.  OneBlood was very pleased.  Thank you, Jol Creech

 S.A.C. REPORT

It’s time to look forward, 2021 will hopefully be another exciting season at Ancient Oaks.  The SAC committee has lined up some great entertainment that will be available in our own clubhouse.  Make sure to mark your calendars and save the following dates.

Monday, January 18th a Tribute to the Bee Gees performed by the Alter Eagles (yes this is the group that was at KOA in 2019) They will bring a high energy performance.

Saturday, January 30 Celtic Revival, performed by the Sky Family from Canada.  Irish dance and blazing fiddles.

Saturday, February 20, Jeff Gordon (referred by Country Legends group Debbi and Gordy) will present Legends of Country featuring the music of Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, George Strait and Garth Brooks.

Saturday, March 6 American Pie group by John Reno will present mix of 60’s and 70’s music sure to please.

The news reports today tell us to look for good things to come despite the tough times right now. We have a great year planned and hope you will all join in on the fun in 2021.

Well, folks it is that time of year again when some of us have to head home.  Some people (quite a few) have left already. It is always sad for me when the end of March rolls around because I know that my time here is coming to an end.  This year, however, I will be staying until I feel it is safe to travel to my Northern home.

The committee feels we had a very successful year with the help of all our volunteers and the people in the park that took part in our activities.

We had three out of the park entertainers this year and they were all well attended.  One was a sell-out thanks to you guys.  Next year we have three new entertainers scheduled to be here.

The reason we have not scheduled any dances is because they were not well attended, and we lost money on all of them.  If we have enough interest in having a dance next year we will try and schedule one.

We will be having another “Party in the Park” with a golf-cart rodeo and various games and a D-Jay.  If you have any suggestions for something that we could do at the party in the park, please let us know.

All of you that are leaving and all of you that are staying please be safe-maintain your 6 ft. space, wash your hands and please remember we are all in this together.  Have a GREAT summer and I hope to see you all back here next season. —–Marlene Kreiger——S.A.C. President. & the entire S.A.C. board.
