Cancer Awareness Weekend

I'm assuming you have all seen the February issue of the park's newsletter:  The Happenings.  What a fantastic document!  Very well done with great photos and packed solid with information.  We thank Barb Poole for a beautiful production.  Barb's photography hobby has certainly paid off.  I LOVED this night time photo of the gas jets from the balloonists.  Very nice!

The Cancer Awareness Event was very successful.  There were many items at the silent auction.

The hot chocolate, coffee, and especially all the homebaked cookies were well received.

Did you see the guys from the photo club who perched on the rooftop for the event?


It was also a great weekend for the in-house pickleball tournaments.  Here's a gold medal group ready to play with last minute instructions from the referee.

Photographers were lined up to get photos of the medal recipients.

The same faces appear at the registration tables and volunteer stations throughout any pickleball events.

Tournament play schedules are constantly updated.

Pickleball players love their vibrant colors.

I bet this massage booth was well attended at the end of a hard day.

Congratulations to all for a very successful and well run event.

It is fun to stop by the dog agility park and watch some of the training events in progress.  I asked Karen Rust to send me some information and photos to post.  


Along with Lynne Benton, and help from several former students and new Palm Creek guests with agility experience, we had an excellent 'first term' of agility classes.  The next set of classes starts this week and will run until the first week of March. 

The agility season wraps up with a fun match to be held on March 10 in the Agility Bark Park next to the ball diamond.  Spectators are welcome.  The Valley Humane Society has been invited to bring adoptable pets to meet and donations in support of their important work will be gladly accepted.  The Fun Match will start at 9:00 a.m. and conclude around noon.  Registration forms are available in Activities.

Among the many fund raisers and events this weekend was the horseshoes tournament.  Come on down to join the group and learn to throw a ringer!
