Manager's Report May 2021 - Pam McFarland
It has been a very unusual season this year and I have hope the season to come will be better in many ways. The staff and I truly appreciate all our residents and wish you a wonderful summer. Now that the season is officially over the staff will begin our summer schedules along with taking vacations. We will also begin completing our summer projects list in preparation for next season.
Vickie your office assistant has decided to retire. She will no longer be an employee of Golf Lakes as of April 30th. She has worked for the Association since 2014 and she was the office assistant for the sales office 3 years before that. Vickie has done a wonderful job for the Park and we will really miss her.
I want to thank all the committees that I have had the opportunity to work with this season. I appreciate all the work these committees do and the time that they sacrifice to make Golf Lakes the great park that it is. In my communication with other Managers, Golf Lakes has a unique community spirit and it is awesome to see it at work.
The Board of Directors in 2005 approved locking the clubhouse if there is a mandatory evacuation notice given for mobile homes in Manatee County. Summer residents need to plan now and beginning making arrangements to leave the park in case of an evacuation. Summer residents also need to have a plan to store all outside items away prior to leaving the Park during an evacuation.
