If you read the monthly Vermont Business Magazine, you may be surprised to see a photo of the Lodge with Ardelia Beach and some of her friends on the cover of the May issue. There is a profile of Bob and me, and a nice write up of Basin Harbor, including some guest comments from the Brons and Nee families (Thank you!). A friend of ours said he learned things from the article that he never knew before. Gotta keep some secrets, right? You’ll be able to read it eventually at www.vermontbiz.com.
The Lake has been receding nicely with a week of warm, windy, sunny weather. The water is now over only one lane in the dip at the back of the Harbor, so we can use the road again. (Basin Harbor Road is still closed due to flooding at the bridge along Otter Creek, so follow the detour signs to get here.) The golf course has dried out surprisingly well and we’re able to use carts again. The turf wintered well, and Charlie Messenger and his crew have done a great job getting it into playable shape. The Golf Shop denizens, Doug, Paul, Will and Jerry are just waiting for you to come out and play, so don’t disappoint them.
The Red Mill is open for the season, too, providing good food and fellowship. We hope to see you there soon!
Tonight we’ll have a great party for the Bixby Free Memorial Library in Vergennes, with tasty food, refreshing drinks, dancing to the Little City Jazz Band and general merriment for all. The Library will be celebrating its Centennial next year. It is a wonderful community resource for all the surrounding towns, and we’re proud to support it!
Tomorrow will be the celebration for the McCauley-FLippin Wedding, congratulations and all best wishes! And we’ll be hosting a Member-Guest Golf Tournament and reception. Busy Day!
Summer always truly arrives when Bob Beach, Sr. comes home from Florida. He arrived yesterday, looking forward to some golf and boating. With the depth of the water in the Harbor making docking sketchy, to say nothing of boating, at least he’ll be able to enjoy the golf course! Welcome back, Bob! Pennie
