SPA AND POOL: Recently there have been large amounts of sand, shell and other debris in the spa and pool. This probably comes from a trip to the beach and is carried to our pool and spa in bathing suits, toys, etc. Please take a shower before entering these areas and clean all items of clothing and toys of anything that has been at the beach or other water spots. Foreign materials can seriously damage our wonderful facilities. Thank you for your cooperation. ---Charles, KGC Manager

THANK YOU: KG Friends: Marcia and I cannot thank all of you enough for the many cards and prayers sent to me after my recent car accident. I feel I am about 90% healed.

SYMPATHY: Our sympathy and prayers are offered to Betty and George Agricola and their family on the suicide death of their son, Matt. He was 35 years old, married for 13 years and had 2 children, and was very despondent over a pending divorce. Betty and George were very shocked and saddened. Please pray for them in their time of need, and any cards or memorials may be sent to their northern address.
SYMPATHY: Our sympathy and prayers to Gene and Judy Riggs, renters for the past several years on the lost of their 15 year old grandson. He was killed Monday night August 13th, 2007 in a terrible car accident. His dad was driving and taking him to the County Fair and a truck hit them in the passenger side of the car and then spun it into an electric pole again hitting on the passenger side where Devin was sitting. He died instantly but Kenny has only minor injuries. There's nothing left of the car and it's a wonder that Kenny wasn't killed also. Their northern address is: 39386 St. Rt.7, Reedsville Ohio 45772.
VIDEO ROOM: Donated from KG club member a Children's DVD "Walt Disney Treasure Island". Two new DVD'S "Wild Hogs" with John Travolta and "Fracture" with Anthony Hopkins. I also purchased another NEW DVD "Queen". We waited three weeks to see if anyone would return the first one. Quite a few people ask to see it and since it was a good movie I purchased another one. As I said before, whoever took it, took not only the DVD but the case and the card. Hope whoever took it enjoys it!! ---Jean Ickes
