Leftover Thanksgiving Dinner

Nothing better than leftover Thanksgiving Dinner

We had a nice crowd of about 25 people in the Clubhouse for a wonderful leftover dinner...we had plenty of leftover Turkey and Ham and all the fixins for a wonderful meal. Jessica spent the afternoon warming up all the leftovers and putting out a scrumptious buffet for dinner!

Thanks to Jessica and Steven and Bobbie & Jim for a great dinner and it was wonderful to see Spud and Sarah join us for the winter!

Nice crowd!

Finally caught Jessica by the oven...

We are already planning a similar feast for Christmas, we have the Turkeys already bought and a nice Ham, just need a little more oil for the deep fryers as we are going to deep fry 3 and oven roast 2 and smoke the ham. Make plans to be here for Christmas, reservations are available.

Thanksgiving Pot Luck Dinner

We had a huge crowd for Thanksgiving Dinner in the Clubhouse!

Over 60 people joined us this year for a wonderful Pot Luck Thanksgiving Dinner. The RV park supplies the Turkeys and Ham and Gravy, with our kitchen crew doing a fantastic job of cooking the turkeys - we had 2 deep fried and 2 oven roasted and smoked ham. Our guests provided virtually every traditional side dish, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, vegetables, salad and plenty of pies for dessert!

We need to Thank Jessica and Stephen for their great effort and fantastic food (I apologize for not getting pictures of Jessica she was too busy and fast in the kitchen to catch)! Thanks Bobbie and Jim for setting up the tables and decorations and lending a hand in the kitchen. Also Thank Vickie and Bill Talley the park owners for supplying the Turkeys, Ham and Kitchen Crew and wonderful park for us to entertain our guests!

Our kitchen crew started on Saturday prepping the turkeys!

Stephen and Jessica made a very tasty brine and the turkeys rested overnight in the brine!

The ham spent a few hours in the smoker!

Bobbie and Big Jim had all the tables ready for the crowd!

The crowd arrived!

Deep Frying the Turkeys!

The deep Fried Turkeys turned out great as well as the oven roasted! Very Juicy, the brine did the trick on both the deep fried and oven roasted!

Time to carve the turkeys!

The food line was long and full!

One of our Marine Residents asked if they could bring a few Marines from the base who just returned from overseas and did not have time to get home, of course we welcomed them and thanked them for their service!

If you missed it or did not get enough, Saturday Dinner in the Clubhouse is leftovers, more desserts are always nice, but should have plenty of everything!

Still waiting for a few winter friends, plenty of activities on the calendar, come on down!

2019-2020 Season Begins

Our winter people are arriving daily - great to see old friends return!! Tons happening in the park - from window washing and weeding, the park is full of activity.

The roses are in bloom and looking good!!

One project that has been put off for the past couple years, finally got done! Our big BBQ needed a good cleaning and the burner pipes wire brushed and the flame holes cleaned out for more even heat, we also removed all the Lava rocks and soaked them over night in water and some vinegar and they look like new - Nighttime Bob and Big Jim took on the project and the stones are all back in, nice and clean and the BBQ is ready for your steak or chicken...

The area around the grill has been cleaned up and ready for people and fun!

We are getting ready to seed the old Oasis and add some green, now that the well is back up and operating.

Lysa Evans our new fitness instructor has arrived and is starting right away...

First dinner in the clubhouse is November 9th a baked potato and salad bar with toppings as a Pot Luck! Sign up in the office and tell us what topping you are bringing!!

The park is very busy and filling up fast, we have quite a few new people and many of our old regulars due in any day now!

Pioneer Day Parade - Twentynine Palms, CA

Several days ago we were contacted by the Chamber to provide our Logo for a float they were doing for the Pioneer Day Parade and they asked for volunteers to walk along and hand out Candy to the kids along the parade route...always fun to participate in a small town Parade.

Bobbie our Activity Director took the reins and recruited a few people to walk with her, shirts were distributed and Vickie ordered a bunch of candy and we were all set...

The float was being done by to represent all the accomodations in Twentynine Palms - Hotels, etc.

We had a beautiful morning with no wind, cool sunny weather and plenty of candy!

The bed represented the various available accomodations in Twentynine Palms.

On with the Parade! Of course there was a large Marine Presence...

Brigadier General Roger Turner, Commanding General, MAGTF Training Command, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in a nice 57 Chevy!

The recently Restored First Twentynine Palms Stage Coach (Bus Line) by the Historical Society!

They finally got some of the ornery kids in Jail!

Local Car Club!

Surfs Up!

In a town Known for its Murals these are the people who maintain them!

It was a fun day to help promote the City of Twentynine Palms and meet some people from town!

Our season has started we have morning coffee in the Clubhouse, Wednesday Social Hour and BBQ, Sunday Pancake Breakfasts and November 9th we start our Saturday Evening Dinners in the Clubhouse!
