November 2015 Smoke Signal Newsletter

Sundance 1 RV Resort, Casa Grande ArizonaFrom the Manager’s Desk

Steve and I want to welcome everyone back for another great season at Sundance 1.  Thank you for your patience while the streets were being done. We know it was a big inconvenience, but they sure look nice.

Have you checked out the pool area? It was repaved and the pool redone so it looks brand new. Steve has also added lights to the dog areas around the retention ponds so it will be easier to see at night.

A big thank you to Juanita Clay, Mary and Larry Shumway for all the activities over the summer. We also want to thank our summer staff Pam Koehn, Staranne and Dennis Bohl, Jack Callen and Marcelino for keeping the park running smoothly over the summer.  Dennis and Marcelino worked extra hard keeping the park clean with all the wind

We have several new employees this season and several who have returned from past years. I know you will make them feel welcome.

A reminder to all annuals, come to the office when you arrive and let us know you are here. This helps us have an accurate account of who is here and will keep us from returning your mail. Don’t forget to have your unit washed and waxed if needed. Check your unit to see if any TLC is needed such as new carpet on deck and stairs, painting, repair to siding and or awning.

Sundance 1 is now on Facebook please check us out, we also have a new website complete with a virtual tour. The Smoke Signal is on the website in full color. We are trying
to eliminate the paper version as you can see us on line and print it out if needed.

Steve and I along with the entire staff want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Steve and Sally Jo Johnson, Managers

This park is like heaven to us please don’t drive like hell through it.

Sundance Library…

Welcome back all you avid readers.

The Library has a new look this year. Some categories have been moved to make room for more book cases. All books have been relabeled and alphabetized so you can find your favorite author faster. We do have a notebook now listing all our authors and most all our book titles. So, if you are looking for a certain author or book title, you may look in the notebook, or ask a volunteer to help you.

I want to thank everyone who donated book ends to the library this summer—also to whomever organized all of the jigsaw puzzles. It is really appreciated. If you run across any missing puzzle pieces when you are putting a puzzle together, please put a note on the outside weather of the box, so the volunteers can take care of it. Thank you.

Sundance 1 RV Resort LibraryOne thing we do ask, PLEASE DO NOT grasp the moveable shelves to pull yourself up from a kneeling position. We are afraid you might injure yourself when the books and shelf fall on you. You may grasp the side of the bookcase to assist yourself up. Once again, Thank You.

Have a wonderful and joyful reading season.

Bible Study…

Bible Study begins Thursday, November 12 at 1:00 pm in the Hang-Out Room. This year we will be using the LifeGuide study of “End Times”. With all that is going on in our world, this seems like a timely study.

Sundance 1 RV ResortDo you know what scripture says about the last days? If you are just curious or want to know more about what is ahead, please join us for a look at this subject. There will be no particular time predicted or no chronological list of events as there is no consensus among Bible scholars as to what happens when. However, we will examine the texts to see what God says.

Study guides will be available for $6 if you would like to purchase one. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Hughes or Shari Andersen.

Join our Book Group at Sundance

When:  Typically the first Monday of every month.  First Meeting:  November 9th 2015.

Where:  First meeting at the Hole in the Wall.

What:  Our book will be “Death Comes to Pemberly,” by P.D. James (2013).  The group read the Classic “Pride & Prejudice” over the summer as background.  This is a “continuation” of this book, written by mystery writer, P.D. James.

Why:  Reading is such fun.  But it’s a lot more fun if you read a book and discuss it together.

Who:  Everyone is invited – women and men.  We need as many of you to come as like to read.  We’ll always be reading books that are available at the local book sotres and on Amazon, Kindle, and Nook, so you can download if you want to.  And we’ll try to read books that have been out for a while, so you can buy them used.  At the end of each season we select the books we will read.

Candy Mayo, who has led several book groups in her home town in Colorado will get us started and lead the discussion – at least till we get established.  Candy won’t be here at the park till November 9th which is why the November meeting will be on the second monday instead of our usualy first Monday.  If you have questions please contact the activities center for more information.

Interested?  Sign up at the Activities Office for the first meeting.  After that, just come!  But, meanwhile, get the book and start reading.  Also, please bring books you’ve read and would suggest we read at upcoming meetings.  We will never read a book that hasn’t already been read and suggested by a member of the group.  That way we don’t read any “duds.”

Attention Everyone!

What are you allergic to? If nothing congratulations! However, if you have
allergies you know how bad they can make you feel! As we all get older our
sense of smell is greatly affected especially by things that we all used to love.
Remember how romantic aftershave on your man or perfume on your lady
made you feel! WELL not anymore. Many of us in the park get headaches (yes
actual ones) or WORSE from the chemicals in the perfumes, lotions, soaps, etc.
We also are affected by any fragrances, even from flowers! Please, if coming
to any public room, do not use scented lotions, aftershave, perfumes etc. as you
never know when you’ll be asked to kindly wash it off. We love you but your
fragrant smell is killing us! Remember if you have used it for a long time, you
can’t smell it on yourself but others can smell you as soon as you arrive and
long after you are gone!

Cut this Emergency block out and put on your refrigerator or some other spot near your phone that is easy for you to know where it is.  Don’t forget to write in your site number!!
