It’s easy to see why Lu summed up her summer in three words: “Life is good!”
THE SEASON AHEAD
We’re also looking ahead to Fall back at the park, and to the entertainment that’s lined up.
NOTE: There is new floorplan for the tables. When I asked Lu about it, she laughed and said, “I have a dear friend who’s a retired Fire Captain and he has made me totally aware of fire safety. I noticed that we have had tables near the doors, so we rearranged them to have more space by the exits.” Good to know.
As for the events, most are self-explanatory and/or feature those who’ve performed in recent seasons. However, there were a few I was curious about…
For one, the last item on the list is “Video Squarez MTV Bingo.”
Lu explained that the regular bingo shuts down for the weeks around Christmas and so it was a chance to try something that’s been a big hit elsewhere. The bingo cards have song titles and the caller plays parts of the songs.
A couple of other acts I wanted to learn more about:
- “Gold Dust Women” features the work of famous female vocalists, like Joni Mitchell and Stevie Nicks.
- “Uncle Click” performed last season and was well-received, doing a combination of country and rock.
- As for “Keith Byers,” Lu seemed especially enthusiastic about him, saying, “He played at a Happy Hour last year and everyone enjoyed him. He has an incredible vocal range, sounding like Johnny Cash on one song and then Michael Bolton on another.”
So, a lot to look forward to. While the Activities Office doesn’t open till October 1st, the Order Form is shown below, followed a PDF of the new seating charts. You can click each to download it, then print the Order Form and mail it in.
