There will be wipes and spray bottles in the beach shed, bathrooms and shuffleboard equipment shed so please take the time to wipe down anything you use.

There will be regular updates in the Spray and the weekly Spritz so please pay attention to those for late breaking news.

The Annual Meeting with be held at the center at 10 am on Saturday June 27. The Annual Reports and instructions were emails to members. Please only send 1 member from your membership. We will try to keep the meeting brief and the agenda limited to just the details needing member attention right now.

Storm Damage Update

It was a rough winter and there are many trees down throughout the PF property, especially at the Falls. The Board will be working with the Property Committee to remove fallen trees that are necessary to keep the Association grounds safe and accessible.  Trees fallen on individual lots are the responsibility of the member to remove.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Due to the extensive damage, we will be suspending Quiet Time this year in order for members to be able to make repairs to their homes and property’s from storm related damage.

Quiet Time will still be in effect on Sunday morning’s until 12 noon.
