Southwestern Night - Park Dinner



WOW - What started out to be a relatively slow night, turned into a great crowd and dinner. A little rain this winter has created a historic Wildflower Bloom in Joshua Tree NP. So the park is full and so is the RV Resort...we had people in the office on Saturday afternoon signing up for dinner, Miraculously, Lori was able to stretch the fixins and take in some extra people, which is tough since she shops and cooks for those signed up by Thursday...but we managed to have a wonderful dinner Southwest style.

Southwest Decorations!

 


FULL PARK


We had a group of young people who joined us and when the music started they joined right in, although we had to convince them to head to the dance floor!


The fun continued on the dance floor...



As usual Kelvin our DJ provided a great assortment of music - some slow dances...



Some good old Rock & Roll!


Even a nice waltz so Jim could give some lessons to our young guests!


We had a great time and it was nice having some new people in the crowd as our season winds down...next week is our last week of Sat dinners and last night for the DJ...we will still have some pot luck dinners through April and some music from the stereo!

Still some fun scheduled.

St. Patrick's Day Dinner



Our fantastic kitchen crew served up a wonderful traditional St. Patrick's Day Dinner, we had corned beef, cabbage, carrots and potatoes with a salad and fresh bread and ice cream and cake for dessert.


We were happy to welcome back our own personal leprechaun for our entertainment. Anita and Jim Kuzyk arrived in the park just in time to provide some genuine Irish entertainment and stories...we sang a few Irish songs and celebrated the Holiday in style.


After our Irish tunes the DJ cranked up the music and the dance floor filled up.







We had a wonderful evening celebrating the Holiday, however we also had some sad news...we lost a wonderful winter friend and wish Ray Haag and his family our heartfelt condolences for the loss of his wonderful wife Betty. Betty always had a smile for everyone and pitched in all our activities, one of the first to help decorate and organize our many events, she will be remembered and never forgotten.

Ray and Betty earlier this year serving up dessert.

Luau Weekend at Twentynine Palms RV Resort



Always a favorite and well attended event, we enjoyed another great Luau Weekend! The weekend starts Friday morning when the fire pit gets dug out and the fire started and by about 3:00 pm the coals are perfect for the blessing of the Pig by the Chief and his entourage, the Tropical Drinks are flowing and the pig gets buried.

We had fantastic weather for the Blessing!



Pork gets wrapped in wet burlap before going in the fire pit.




Ready to be buried!



Time for a Pina Colada!!


The Chief and the Luau Ladies!


Tropical Drinks all around!



Now we wait - the pig slowly simmers underground for about 21 hours or so...just in time for a wonderful Saturday Evening Feast. As usual the pork was the most succulent and tasty, another fine meal by our kitchen crew! We had a fantastic crowd of about 60 people!


After dinner we enjoyed some wonderful entertainment...


There was even some Hula lessons for Warren...



After the entertainment our DJ got the music started!



Always a good assortment of Music - like a little Two Step!


Some line dancing!


Just cannot give enough Thanks to our wonderful Kitchen crew, Activity people and staff!
