A big thank you to all who sent cards and prayers during Jim's recent illness and heart surgery. Special thanks to all who drove both Irene and myself to the hospital and on errands. I'm home now and working on 4 to 6 week recovery.

Activities

POTLUCK MANNERS

Reminder of the article in July's newsletter. "Please be respectful of others. If your table is called first, take only what you can eat, (a little sample of each dish) not 3-5 eggs or heaping spoons of a main dish. It has been observed that people take more and put the extra in containers to take home with them. If you want seconds, go up after all tables have been called and take what you can eat. A lot of people worked hard to prepare their dish and if there is leftovers they may want to take it home for themselves".

Activities

CAR WASH

Hey, a good place to get your car washed for $6, $8, $10 is at the Chevron Station just south of here on right side of street. Takes only 15 minutes and they use recycled water. Works great for me and I'm saving water here.

RANCHERS ON WHEELS

Our group has been very active. In May we visited Del Mar Beach where the frozen margaritas were delicious. In June we traveled to Vista. Upon arrival we joined the Elks for a mouth-watering steak and shrimp BBQ. The group attended the Highland Scottish Games and experienced something rare for So Cal  Rain.

We continue to enjoy playing Pegs and Jokers each Friday evenings. We invite anyone who is interested in camping to join us. Contact Jolee Mertz, Kathe Slack, or Colleen May for more information.

WORKERS WANTED

Some of us noticed that our grounds could use a little sprucing up and I can't agree even more. Our Maintenance team has been really busy installing camera's, taking care of the pool, and fixing things that could cost a lot of money if we had to hire this work out. So having said that, Landscaping committee is asking for some help to get this done, just a few hours on August 22 @ 9:00 a.m. and we will provide donuts in the morning and sandwiches in the afternoon. Please call to let us know that you're going to help us out. Thank you for all of your help.

Kathe Slack
