Postponed 4th of July Fireworks

Members, Unfortunately because of the risk of fire due to the dry conditions, we are not going to be able to hold our fireworks display on July 4th. The plan is to reschedule the fireworks for later this summer once the local burn ban has been lifted, but that date has not been set yet. I will keep you posted with updates as I get them. For the same reason, all at-home fireworks are also banned until further notice.

Dig your favorite Hawaiian shirt out of your closet and call the babysitter because in lieu of the THP, we will be hosting an end of summer Lakeside Luau at Swimmers Beach on September 9 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.    It has been difficult to get people to volunteer to be a host house for the THP in the past, so our hope is that this eliminates any pressure to host and gives everyone a chance to come together for drinks, hors d'oeuvres, games, and music to bid the summer farewell.    Some alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as hor d'oeuvres will be provided, but we welcome any food or drink donations! If you'd like to donate…
