A Big ‘Thank You’ from Landscaping

The bucket brigade busily bused 18 yards of bark mulch assisted by Bud Covington on the biggest little tractor in Timber Valley. Approximately 20 volunteers worked 2 1/2 hours to complete the task. Thank You! Thank You!
For those who missed out, there will soon be another BYOB Party, date and time to be announced.

New Website Subscription Service

Everyone has their own way of using our website. Some visit every day. Others use it only when they’re looking for specific information or documents relating to our park. And with some, it’s a hit-and-miss situation — they visit when they happen to think about it. Still others never visit at all.

I’ve recently added a “subscription service” to our timbervalleyskp website in an effort to provide an additional way to keep up with our news.  The way it works is that whenever a new post is published on our website, the system automatically sends an email to those who subscribed. The email includes a link to the new post, which for some users, makes it easy and less time consuming to keep up with the latest park news.

If you think this might be a benefit for you, look for the “Subscribe” heading near the bottom of the right-hand column of our website. All you need to do is enter your name (and lot number please) and your email address, hit the “subscribe” button, and follow the instructions from there.

This email list is maintained by us and is never shared or used by anyone else. You can rest assured it is secure and safe.

Email me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. Email to [email protected]

A Friday Morning Party???

Everyone is invited to a PARTY on Friday morning… a BYOB party.

The Landscape Committee has 18 cubic yards of fresh bark mulch to spread on various common areas around our park. When we did this last year, the turnout was so good that it only took 2 hours to complete the job.  The more help we have… the quicker the job goes… and the sharper our park looks. Here are the particulars…

BYOB Party (Bring Your Own Bucket)
Meet at Clubhouse Front Parking Lot (near the big mulch pile)
9:00am on Friday, June 29
“Many Hands Make Light Work”

Free Community Emergency Response Training

The Timber Valley Board has officially formed an Emergency Preparedness Committee to begin developing an Emergency Preparedness Plan for the Park.  This would include identifying risks and mitigation strategies; listing resources; establishing coordination within the Park; and coordinating with the City of Sutherlin’s Plan. Interested park members will be able to sign up for the committee at the Annual Meeting in July.

Before the Annual Meeting, however, there is an amazing opportunity to receive emergency response training being offered locally by the City. (The information is attached below.)

If you are interested in attending this free four-Saturday course beginning July 14. (Yes, it is a commitment … but you will gain extremely valuable information and skills.)

Contact Dennis Riggs, Emergency Manager for the City of Sutherlin, at (541) 459-1394 … or email him at: [email protected]

You can mention that you heard about it from Julianne Crane of Timber Valley RV park,  who has enrolled in the training.

A few snapshots from Chapter 9’s Elkton RV Rally

Chapter 9 member Jerry Christensen (# 158) fishing in the Umpqua River that runs along side the Elkton RV Park, site of the first Chapter 9 Rally of the summer season.

Viewed from the road above the Elkton RV Park, one can see the Umpqua River flowing in the background. Most of the RVs visible in the picture are  Chapter 9 rigs.

Rallies usually build in free time when members can gather to play games or simply talk and exchange stories of their RV travels.

Shown in the above photo are (from top left) Pam (partially hidden) and David Sawaya talking with Jimmy Smith (# 197), and Jerry and Robi Sypkens (# 176). (From left in foreground) George Boykin (# 87) chatting with Anita and Bud Covington (# 140).

One reason for the popularity of the Elkton RV Park is its tranquil location. Being on the edge of the Umpqua River provides visitors the opportunity to relax, kick back, and breathe in the cool, fresh air from heavily shaded sites.
