Anyone interested in a trip to Brighton? Bingo and /or casino?

Wedding: Virginia Toering's daughter, Nancy Teneshof is getting married on September 4th. Henceforth, she will be known as Nancy Crumback. Congratulations and our very best wishes.
Health Dept: The Polk County Health Dept will be here on September 29th. They will be giving flu shots. At the present time, the flu shots do not include the swine flu shot. Contact Dick Dain at 696-1141 for more information.
Library: The library is open on Monday's 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. Phone 863-696-2407. 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.
Stump Paint: Anyone wishing to paint their stump contact Robert Douskey, 109 Saddlebag Trail, 863-221-1319. He has the paint, not the labor.
The ladies are playing dominoes on Wednesdays at 1PM in the annex. Everyone is welcome.
Pool: The latest word, the pool is closed until such time as repairs are completed. We are looking at 3 or 4 weeks. The local YMCA has given Saddlebaggers a special deal to use their facilities with pool. For $30 per family or $20 per single you will be issued a special Saddlebagger card with an expiration date of 9/30. This is a very nice outdoor pool. The YMCA is located just down the street from Bok Tower.
Directories: The new SLR directories are now available. The cost is still $1.00. Contact Dot Lynch at 696-1418 to get your copy. She will also deliver if needed.
