THE ACORN

                     FEBRUARY 2019

MANAGER’S REPORT 

I have been told that we need to enforce all of those who are in Violationof our Park Rules.

So, I’m doing that.  If you have received a violation letter please cooperate,

Thank You,—-Ron Zobel—Park Manager.

FRONT OFFICE NEWS

The front office asks that you no longer bring in $100.00 bills for us to break.

If you pay something that allows for a small amount of change in return, less than

$25.00 That’s OK, but if you owe us $25.00 and pay with a $100.00 bill, we can’t break this.  Too many of these transactions leaves us with too many large bills and not allowing us to make change for smaller transactions.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Thank you, —-Front Office     Kathy & Tami
