A Note From Carol

Monday, March 28th, 2016

As our season here at Sandy Oaks comes to an end, there are many people who have contributed to the tim and success of this busy season. A huge thank you to Sue and Reg Bowman for all their hard work keeping the residents happy with coffee, donuts, cook outs, pot luck dinners and popcorn! Without their dedication to keeping us full, we would all be thinner but much less happy. Safe travels to them and we hope they have a great summer but be ready to come back again next season!
Wally Meyer and his crew kept us well supplied with all the drinks we could handle. They never complained about all of the hours they had to put in to keep our bar up and running. Thanks to you guys we never ran out!
Joanne Meyer and her staff’ were the big reasons so many people want to keep coming back, Bingo on Wednesday nights (don’t forget to get there by 6 PM!) and a very active bowling league. It will be even more fhn next year when she adds a second bowling season beginning in November.
Marilyn Ormiston made our club house look special for every occasion and did it all on a budget! In between times she was busy planning special off grounds activities like zip lining and horseback riding. We all wish her good luck on her mule trip into the Grand Canyon this fall!
Char and Don Boccuti showed up every Saturday night to see wrist bands and 50/50 tickets, all the while greeting new residents and making everyone feel welcome. We have listened to a lot of jokes and her special way of explaining the how and why of the 50/50 drawing. Thank you to a very cool couple for your help.
Thanks to Tom and Dianne Crossman for all they have done to keep our park happily exercised with bike rides and line dancing. You really know how to keep us all in shape!
Bryan Blixt and his cooks have kept us well fed with hamburgers and hot dogs and on Mondays he was busy putting together the golf group. What a guy! Wishing him well as he battles with his health. We are all keeping you in our prayers!
And finally, a big thank you to all of the volunteers that have made this park a very special place to live. Without all of your help, we could not offer the same level of activities and fun entertainment that we have all become accustomed to. It takes many willing hands to make this all work.

Love you all!  Carol
