A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL KING'S GATERS who took part in making a special day for me.   My family and I appreciate everything you gals and guys did for us.

LADIES' LUNCHEON FOR MAY:   Join us on Thursday, May 10, at 11:30 AM at Venice Art Center.  You may sign up for reservations and menu choice in the back of the Hall.  No money needed now.  You will pay at the restaurant - $16.00, which covers everything - lunch, coffee or tea, tax and tip.  Any questions call Mary Jane Christopherson 486-1739

SCHOOLING COMPLETED:   Michele Byrd, KGC Office Manager, has recently completed the following accounting courses:   Beginning Accounting, Advanced Accounting and Quick Books Accounting.   Michele excelled in her work by scoring the highest grade point average in each class.   Congratulations, Michele!

SAGE ADVICE:   The Surprise Bridal Shower for Michele Byrd, KGC Office Manager, was a huge success.   124 ladies attended this event last Friday afternoon in the clubhouse.   Gifts were also sent by several ladies who were unable to attend the party.   The tables were beautifully decorated, and there was an abundance of cookies and bars.   Wren McMains put together a wonderful video, complete with music, showing many residents in the gown or outfit they wore on their wedding day.  (Thanks to Wren--this represented a lot of work).  Four wedding gowns worn by residents were also modeled.  And the best part is that it was a complete surprise to Michele.  Michele will marry Keith Rachal on May 5, 2007.  We all wish Michele and Keith many years of happiness together.

THOUGHTS:   Since we plan to leave next Wednesday, "Thoughts" will not be in the Newsletter for a while.   For all of you, the Staff joins me in wishing that you all have a wonderful summer, whether you are here in Florida or in the north.   We also wish a speedy recovery to our residents who are struggling with illnesses.   You may be sure that you are in our prayers.   It's fun to look back on another wonderful season at KGC and, if the summer goes as fast as these past months, it won't be long before it is Fall.   Will miss each one of you, but will look forward to our return to KGC.   All the Best ---SJB

NEW LOCATION:   Large items for disposal i.e. appliances, TV's, doors, etc. are to be dropped off in the 8 acres against the fence just before the boat parking area begins.       Thanks,   Charles - Manager KGC

NOTES FROM CHARLES CLOTFELTER, OUR MANAGER:   Charles asks that each resident stop in the office before they leave for the summer and "check out."   That way any mail to be sent from the office will be sent to the correct address.   Also, prepare the outside of your home for the summer before you leave.   Do not leave any objects outside which could be a danger in a storm.   Make provisions for the care of your landscaping during the summer, and advise the office who will be doing this work for you.
