Library: The library is open on Mondays right after Koffee Klatch.
Tab Tops: Dale Calhoun wants to remind everyone to save your tabs from your beer or soda cans as these can then be turned into the Ronald McDonald House charity. If you save them, bring them south with you.
Entrance Gate: The Office is asking everyone that has a Bar Code attached to your vehicle, to call the office. Give them your stump number and the number of the bar code. New computer software has been installed and all of the numbers have to be put back into the system. You can do it now or wait until you get back, but you will not like doing it when you get back because you will have to go into the office before you will be let in. Please be patient, as I expect the office phone to be busy a lot of the time due to this notice. This is also on the website(www.saddlebaglakeresort.net), under current issues.
Pictorial Directory: The directories are now available for pickup at the Woodruff Residence, 4 Queen of Waters or call 696-1053. This was well done. It has a hard cover. $10.00 per copy.
High Speed Internet Access: We are still waiting on AT and T to install a 3G transmitter on the phone tower out front. Other than that, LWW is still operating here. You also have the option of Satellite service. (Hughes, Wild Blue and Dish Network or DirecTV which also offer high speed internet access.) At the present time, there aren't any prospects of getting DSL service here.
The ladies are playing dominoes on Wednesdays at 1PM in the annex. Everyone is welcome.
Pool: The latest word, the pool is scheduled to be closed for approximately 1 month starting on the 17th of this month. It could be closed as early as August 15th to allow the workers to drain the pool in anticipation of starting the work on the 17th.
Birthday Party: Rob Kightley is having a 90th birthday party for his mother(Evelyn) this coming September. The invitation is also posted on the Announcements page on the left hand side of the home page(www.saddlebaglakeresort.net).
This Thursday at 3PM there is a pool closing get together. Bring some snacks to pass around.
This Wednesday at 6PM, the Saddlebag Church is having their annual Salad Smorgasbord. Bring your eating utensils, and a salad of your choice. A donation will be appreciated.
