President’s Message July 2, 2021

Hello Everyone;

Aaaahhh, at last some semblance of normality again!!!

There is good news for the Association, we have a heartbeat again!!
We had a seeded metal detecting hunt Sunday June 27th at Crown Point Shores 9:00-10:00 AM WITH PICNIC afterwards and 22 folks hunted and 25 attended. What a pleasure to see everyone and then spend a couple of hours talking and eating together. Frank Trutta held a beach hunt in Mission beach as well on the 13th.
On Sunday July 11th we will be holding the Annual Summer Picnic at Dixon Lake 8:00-2:00. The Association will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs, condiments, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, and ice water. Please bring your chairs and a side or dessert to share.
There will be a metal detector hunt, panning contest, and raffles
Please notify me if you are coming so I can plan the food.

On the bad side, we have contacted Park Avenue Community Center for a new update on our meeting space and the reply is still the same…”NOT BEFORE SEPTEMBER”. The senior lunch program has been moved into the large room where we hold our meeting while remodeling is being done. They are also still requiring masks and distancing. I have already asked several Board members to try and explore another location. We may have to go to a park or the beach to get a meeting in before then.

In summers past we have made a trip up to the Cleghorn Claim for a day trip sluicing, but Charlene went by there at the end of May and the county has put in concrete barriers blocking access to the parking area there. I believe it was done to stop all of the illegal semi-permanent camping and large amounts of trash and dumping going on there. The high and low deserts will be getting too warm for a trip from now through the summer so we may have to wait until the fall season to have some organized trips again.

I know of 5 people who have gone up to Roaring Camp last month, It is becoming a favorite destination and I have heard of nothing but good experiences.
Have a good month and see you at the events
