Park News – August 7, 2019

WOW – where did the time go? It is the Dog Days of August and we are in triple digit temperatures. It is 100 degrees most days with a “Feels like 106 – 112” depending on where you are and what you are doing. We are thankful for a breeze (15 – 20 mph) but at times you feel as though standing in front of a heat fan. NO RAIN.

What do we Full Timers do during the summer – Flea Market, as a group go out to eat, play Mexican Train, 5 Crowns card game and time ourselves in the pool. We did have BBQ Ribs and pot luck last week. The evenings are nice and the sunsets beautiful.

This week the Palm Tree Trimmers are in the park. They began trimming the palms Tuesday and today they are on Gardenia Street. Oleander (main street) will the last street. As fast as that crew is working, the park will be finished by Friday. This crew deserves a lot of credit as they come in early morning and are working all day in this heat.
