  • Christmas in the Park

    Christmas in the Park








































    Many thanks to the community-minded residents filled with holiday spirit who made last night’s first Christmas in the Park a success.

    The event, featuring a costumed car parade, outdoor movie and plenty of treats, was sponsored by the Park Stockdale Civic Assiciation and spearheaded by Roxanne Fackler and John Prince.
    Other board members who donated time and/or food included: Susan Tuttle, Rachel Kirk, Kiki Contreras, Dennis Shea and Jim Carnal. Volunteer Melissa Martinez was also instrumental in the production.
    Alicja Burnett, with boyfriend Scout Claassen as the grinch on the car roof, led a string of 10 decorated cars, Christmas music playing and horns a beeping, through the neighborhood.
    Upon their return to the park, more than five dozen residents enjoyed pizza provided by BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. Residents donated hot chocolate, coffee, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, cookies and popcorn.
    With tummies as full as St. Nick’s, residents donned blankets to watch a classic Christmas movie.

    Thanks to the early morning lap swimmers for scrubbing clean the top row of pool tiles at the end of the season before the pool is covered.

    Board member Susan Tuttle got things rolling this year by bringing the sponges.
    Resident Pat Nolan, who has been lap swimming here with her husband Bryan for 25 years, said the pool is “the jewel of the community. Cleaning the tiles is a way for the swimmers to give back” to the board of directors and the community.
    Tuttle added, “It was kind of our thank you.”
    She added that the adult lap swimming hours, 6-8 a.m. daily, are not just for proficient swimmers. Adults who are  rehabbing are welcome to just walk the lanes for physical therapy.
    The sponge brigade this year was: Tuttle, the Nolans, Jack Griffith and Michelle Patterson.
