Ground Hog Day Sundance!

News Notes –

Clarification on shower house use as there seems to be some misunderstanding.  The shower house primary use is for those who use our pools.  Please use your home/unit facilities for daily hygiene.

After seeing all the participation in the dressing up and the fun had at the Musical Review Rockabilly concert- We though it would be a blast to step back in time and have an evening to “Rock Around the Clock’ (not literally tho). We want ya’ll to have time to put together costumes -if you choose- (Amazon, Goodwill, Salvation Army are great resources.)  We are also looking for a Decorating Committee to brainstorm and help to transform the Hole in the Wall !  Volunteers can sign up in Activities- We need our committee by Thursday 2/10 for a meeting on Friday 2/11 at 2pm at the Ranch House Meetin’ Room.  So mark your calendars for Saturday 2/19 for the Sundance Sock Hop!  More details out soon!
