Our clocks leaped forward an hour yesterday, so “Linwood time” is approaching. That is a welcoming thought, especially exciting this summer, with opportunities to enhance the buildings we refurbished last year with so many wonderful volunteers. Nancy Romes and Jean Schedler have been planning more good eats and treats at the Stand, Janet Waggoner continues to put her artistic touch in the inviting Upper Rooms over the Stand, Carol Flick has added a lot more talented artists to participate in our beautiful Store, while the LCCL devoted much effort in upgrading the Tabernacle’s interior.
Matt and his crew continue to improve our grounds and buildings and always creatively and willingly available where needed.
Our annual shareholders’ meeting at the Vermilion Boat Club, in February enabled many of us to share greetings and reports, but always miss those of you not able to attend. Fred Galovich and Gere Flick were elected to the Board of Directors, replacing Greg Seeley and Tom Crowley.
At our directors’ meeting, it was voted to purchase a beach-sifting machine which will be attached and dragged behind the tractor. This is very exciting and should provide Linwood not only with the most beautiful beach, but also the cleanest.
This season’s opening day at Linwood is Friday, June 7, 2013 with the operations fees and gate fees to remain the same as last year. Look for and tell your friends to enjoy a “Linwood Open” day in June (date to be announce), when there will be no gate fee for the day and people can enjoy our very special haven, hopefully to return for longer stays.
So, while the clock keeps ticking, and the days get warmer, I look forward to our togetherness again, where time stands still, at least for some beautiful brief summer days at Linwood.
