Thanks to All for Solving Today’s Water Leak!

Randy (on his day off!) and many park members helped solve today’s water leak. Thanks to all who reported, communicated, and helped with the day-long unexpected work on a hot Saturday!

If you did not receive the Timber Valley alerts throughout today in your phone’s text messages or in your email, please sign up for alerts on our website’s Members Only page.

For those who do not subscribe to alerts, the 8:24pm – 8:26pm alerts state: “Leak is fixed. Tree roots got us again. Make sure to flush your outside faucet/hose for 10 or 15 minutes before running it into your rig. And you’d best be using bottled water or ultra-filtered water for a few days until the system has settled down. This was a tough one. Thanks, Randy”

We also have a small and dedicated water meter team reading the meter every Sunday to ensure that we are billed fairly and to monitor leaks. Today’s leak was observed and immediately reported by members, and we are very grateful. Today’s events demonstrated the Timber Valley co-op values! Thanks again to all!

Thank you Vicky Mount for the photos! View photo gallery.

Thanks to All Who Attended Art’s Birthday Party!

Thank you to everyone who attended Art Hampton’s birthday party! And to the family and friends who traveled here for the big event. 100+ people made a very festive occasion. Thank you Jacks and Jills and Chapter Nine for sponsoring the party. Thank you to all the volunteers who planned it, set up the rooms, prepared and served the delicious cakes, provided the entertainment and the amazing number of people who made clean up pretty darn easy.

I was proud and happy to be a member of Timber Valley Park today. Being part of such a warm and friendly and fun community is pretty special in today’s world. And it takes all of us to make it work – the members who present the event and the members who support that effort by showing up ready to have fun and lend a hand where needed.

We have our differences sometimes and being a self-managed community can be frustrating and hard work but days like today remind us how worthwhile it can be. One of our neighbors turned 100 years old today! And we celebrated that momentous event in grand style and with plenty of laughter.

At the recent Jack and Jills meeting we talked about the upcoming 4th of July golf cart parade. One of last year’s participants said that we not only need “paraders” we need spectators sitting outside their rigs and  “rah-rah-ing” those paraders. Today we had lots of rah-rah-ers and it makes it all worth it!

Thank you for participating today and let’s keep rah-rah-ing!

— Barbara Russell, party committee member

The Office would like to introduce a newly arrived friend for Henrietta Hedgehog. Please meet Grundy the Goat.

Thank you, Daphne Garrett for contributing to the prediction. “It is what it is!”

In Memoriam: Marian Ruth Warne

For those of you who had the pleasure of knowing my sweet mom, Marian Ruth Warne, you will remember how she lived her life dedicated to serving others. Born on June 23, 1937, she grew up in Santa Rosa, California. She traveled the world as a military spouse and during this time gave birth to two daughters, Joni Kenner and Linda Feehs. In the 1970’s, she was introduced to her Savior Jesus Christ through the kindhearted mentorship of a friend, and dedicated her life to pleasing Him and to spread His love and blessings to those around her.

She met Bob Warne in the 1980’s and they were married on July 1, 1987. Bob and Ruth discovered early that they loved to take to the road in their RV. They bought their first RV in 1989, a brand new Dolphin Micro Mini Class C, and enjoyed traveling in it as well as the additional four RVs that they also purchased.  They have traveled to Alaska, Canada, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, New York, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah.

Ruth demonstrated Christ’s love by serving and sacrificing time and time again for her family, loved ones and friends. Whether it was making memories with her grandchildren, providing care to an elderly neighbor with no family in this country, or taking care of the needs of her family, she was always serving others. A memory that I will always hold dear is how she would cut out the middle of the watermelon, the sweetest and best part, and give it to my sister and me.

One of Ruth’s favorite Bible verses was “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15. I can think of no better way to describe my mom. Service, sacrificial love, heartfelt compassion, and unwavering faith depict how she chose to live her life. To our sweet wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, until we see each other again, we will hold your memories dear to our hearts. We love you dearly.

–Linda Feehs

Social Hour May 31st at 3 pm

Last week, we learned from Mike Nickel how he makes baskets from needles from a Yellow Pine tree. This coming Friday, Joy Stalnaker will tell us how she makes similar baskets but uses another medium.

Come learn how to make a keepsake basket without traveling south and gleaning material from the earth. You may need one for a birthday present or have one for yourself to put your precious item into.

This is this time to socialize and enjoy a snack or a glass of wine.
