     The pool will be closed on Sunday, June 20th in order to remove the chlorine level in the pool water so that it can be pumped into the lake on Monday.   The Spa will remain closed until the pool renovation has been completed.   The contractor tells us that it should take 10 working days to complete the resurfacing of the pool.   The pool bathrooms will be closed until Monday, June 21st to allow the new floor surface to cure.

NOW Pray tell WHY do people keep the DVD's out more than three days.  It is just not fair to the residents. I get so many calls asking for certain DVD's and it is frustrating to see why residents do this.  IF ANY of you are reading this UP NORTH and you feel you might have one or more of these please email me  so I can pull the card until you return.  Next week I will put the house NO. on the newsletter and maybe that will ring a bell with people!!       --Jean Ickes
