Winter Texan Tourist Day - Progresso, Mexico (March 21, 2013)

     Several of our Park member's went over to Nuevo Progreso, Mexico to celebrate Tourist Day on March 21, 2013.  There was free food, drinks and gifts for everybody.  A great time was had by all.

     Another very exciting event at the celebration was the crowning of King and Queen of Tourist Day.  Our very own Dennis and Mary LaFaive were crowned as the King & Queen from Canada (although they are not Canadian their summer home in Northern Michigan is very close to Canada).  See the article in the March 2013 Leisure Lore which explains all the wonderful things that Dennis and Mary have done for Nuevo Progeso's poor and uneducated.

The Stage is Lower!

Received the following posting from Terry Caywood via email.

A great crew showed up to help lower the L W stage. The stage had been constructed to accommodate chair and table storage. It was redesigned to be more performer friendly. Thanks to ALL who were involved in the project.

Elsiebel winds up 35 years in Leisure World

This photo which greeted guests at the special
reception for Elsiebell captured her at about
5 years of age with White Foot the cat. She
moved into Leisure World a few years later!
After 35 years with her friends and neighbors in Leisure World, Elsiebel is
moving to John Knox Villiage.! Tim & Linda Parr, daughter and son-in-law
hosted an opportunity for all her friends and neighbors to wish her well on
her move.

Elsiebel greeted the arrivals just inside the door.
She greeted, 
And greeted, 

And greeted!
The crowd grew, and grew, and grew.

Long time friends from out of the park joined in.

The cake and ice cream was served, and it certainly passed the taste test, \
right Mel?

A brief program revealed how much Elsiebel has touched all our lives.

When Jim Staton announced special pre-dance dances of Elsiebel's favorites,
Stan Gainer was quick to claim the first dance with the guest of honor.
There were others that soon claimed their turn,
Tim and  Linda soon joined in,

And with Dianna and Albert tripping the light fantastic, we've got to admit, it was one swell party?
You'll always be a part of the Leisure World family.
