My Dear Silveridge Family,
The time has come for me to retire at the end of the 2022 season.
My resignation comes with much thought and prayer. After 12 years of serving as your activity director, Jeff and I have decided that it is time to spend more time with our family and to move on to some new adventures. This heartfelt journey has been the best “semi retirement job” that I could imagine! Little did I know the joys and challenges that awaited me.
My years with you would not have been possible without my special team. To Sharon Beatty, my faithful assistant, and to Jerry Colling and Tracy Gagnier, my talented kitchen team, thank you for your faithfulness through the years. Your friendship and professional work ethic has meant the world to me and all of our Silveridge family. Thank you also to Jill Belcher my first assistant, and to John and Deb Bartlett, my set up friends.
It is with a grateful heart that I honor all the volunteer leaders and assistants who gave their personal time and talent to make our activities possible. Because of you we grew our Clubs and Activities. You made it happen by giving others the opportunity to learn new skills while making friends and having fun. To all my personal volunteers who helped me with special projects; I appreciate you so much.
You are all winners! Thank you for your generosity in purchasing tickets. It enabled me to book some top notch entertainment. Whether it was dances, shows or any entertainment, my reward was watching you enjoy the events that you deserved.
Sharon has agreed to become your new activity director! She serves with a smile. With 7 years of experience working in Activities and with her leadership skills, I know she will be a good fit for this job. We will be working together to execute the events still to come while planning next year’s activities and entertainment. Please welcome Sharon as we transition into new beginnings.
Through the years, Jeff and I have formed many friendships in the park. Making memories with you whether through work or play has been a joy.
I am happy to say that at the time of this writing our goal is to return to Silveridge from January though March of 2023. We are selling our home on Lot #60 and are looking forward to the “play” part and spending more time relaxing and partaking in some of the activities that I helped plan but did not have the time to join.
Thank you again my dear friends for your prayer support and encouragement. You uplifted me and others who have had personal heartaches and lost loved ones. Through our food, fellowship and fun, I know many of you have found your “Happy Place” during my time with you.
From the beginning my twin goalposts have been to honor God and serve you. To this purpose, I hope I have made a difference for the better in your lives.
With Love and Appreciation,
