This Week at Grand Lake - July 8, 2024

And it is quiet again...

Gooood Morning!

Well then… we had ourselves a time. How about you?

Great fireworks, awesome time spent with family and friends, and memories to last a lifetime - that’s what July 4th at Grand Lake is all about, and we pulled it off yet again.

OK, so, I’m making an executive decision around here.

Frankly, every Monday, it is a stretch for me to find things to include in these newsletters.

So, I’m going back to just a once-a-week email, in your inbox by 10 or so each Thursday morning.

This week there will still be 2 emails, but starting next week, we are going back to just one.

And, based on polls and feedback I’ve had in the past, that will be just fine for most of you.

I’ll work to make sure the website stays updated so that every Thursday you will still be able to get and easily find the information that you want to help you make the most of your Grand Lake Livin’.

And, with that, let’s get to it. Here is what you need to know for this week at Grand Lake:
