2019 Fall Festival

There is nothing like breaking bread with your neighbors to imbue a sense of community. It’s one of the things that make Country Place such a special place in a day and time when interpersonal relationships have become the exception. Oh, and the brisket and sausage were delicious.

So thanks to all the volunteers who helped Valencia Ray put on another successful CPCA event. This year we had seven wagons and twenty treaters for our kids. It was a blast!


Long Lake Walking Trail

One of the reasons our dues in Country Place are so low is that much of the work is done by volunteers. So everyone owes a big “THANK YOU” to Rusty Jacks and his crew for their work Saturday morning to keep the walking  path around Long Lake (#3) clear. If you’re new to the neighborhood, or if you’ve never participated in one of the “Work Saturdays”, this is a great way to meet your neighbors in a friendly, productive environment. Hope to see you at the next one!

Long Lake (#3): New Footbridge

The footbridge across the dam on our Long Lake (#3) had rotted out to the point that it was becoming unsafe, so your board put it out for bid and Roman Landscaping was awarded the job. Andrew and his crew have constructed a very solid footbridge which should last another ten years.

Spring Picnic/Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Once again, Valencia Ray and her team put together a fun day for both adults and children at our Three Lakes Park. The skies were cloudy, but the atmosphere was bright, and after a lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers and fried catfish, the children of Country Place made quick work of gathering eggs on the Jacks’ manicured lawn. I had an opportunity to visit with several of my neighbors whom I only see at our CPCA events. I also made some snapshots and am sharing them here.
