Flowers (again)

There doesn't seem to be a certain 'season' when the cactuses bloom.  They just like to surprise us.

 
 
How does the new fitness room look so far?? 
 
 
And here is the remaining laundry area.



 I think I'll tease Dora that the housekeeping crew has been sluffing off.  Will she have a sense of humor??

Work continues at the Bistro.  The August "Happenings" newsletter calls it the Fireside Patio and says it will seat more than 80 people.
 
Ernesto and Jaime are back in Palm Park doing the finishing work on the walkways and on the center medallion.



The street of dreams up by the sales office is undergoing drastic change as they pull out the single park model homes.  This one now resides on the corner of Coyote Trail and Cole Circle at site 1776.

This one comes out next.  The park models are being replaced with 1 and 2 bedroom Resort Cottages.  The 1 bedroom Resort Cottage offers nearly 75% more living area than a park model at 30% less cost per square foot.  They are also offering the 2 bedroom, 2 bath Resort Cottage that gives room for a hobby or guest room.  A Calabria village home will also be added to the street of dreams.  


Copied from the August Happenings Newsletter:  The sales office will complete 23 new home sales by January 1st, and just this year we've already had 48 resales at Palm Creek.  The variety of homes to choose from couldn't be better.  We have casitas, park models, resort cottages, and village homes.  Stop in the Sales Office for a tour or receive a list of homes for sale--ranging from $22,000 for a park model to $125,000 for a village home.

More GREAT news for our resort.  Palm Creek receives a 10/10/10 in Trailer Life, Good Sam and Woodall's.  Fantastic!!  

***********

We certainly have some good drainage in the park.  It's hard to believe how much of that flood water has already subsided.
 
 
The golf course back 9 closes for re-seeding on September 3.  The front 9 will remain open until the first week of October.

**********************************************

On a much more somber note:  I received a notice from Mary Hackala regarding the passing of her husband, Ray.  Ray and Mary had many friends here in Palm Creek.
Here's the note from Mary:


Hi, Sue.
Ray did the stained glass mosaics after his stroke, managing to place the pieces well. He also was involved in the men's golf, lawn bowling and silversmithing.  He enjoyed the cribbage, also.
We lived on the golf course at 1741 Coyote Trail, after having our first little place at 1620.
Thank you. Our local paper with his obit is Rockford Morning Star.  Mary
