There is NO PRICE INCREASE for 2016 LPN memberships, and there is a significant "EARLY BIRD" DISCOUNT for those who pay in full by January 31. There are three types of LPN golf memberships. Regular memberships are available to both LPA members and non-members. Special memberships are for those who were not LPN golf members in 2015, and distance memberships for people who are not LPA members and who live more than 18 miles from the LPN. Golf membership, men's league and women's league forms are available on the LPN's website. Questions? Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024.
This week the pro shop will be open Tuesday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., closed Friday, then back to regular hours on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Normal winter pro shop hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday.
Get Ready for Some Laughs
Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 16. Comedian Jay Harris will be at Lake Panorama National to perform at 8 p.m. This is a FREE performance, to show the LPN's appreciation for its loyal patrons in 2015 and celebrate what's ahead in 2016. Jay lives in Chicago and works full-time as a comedian. He enjoys using sarcasm to get his point across. His interactions with everyday people and his personal quirks give him a unique perspective on life. Even so, his biggest target is himself. Food and drink specials will be offered throughout the evening, so come early for drinks and dinner, then stay for the show. Watch for more details next week!
Charitable Giving - Friends of Lake Panorama
Just a few days remain to make a tax-deductible charitable donation for 2015. Friends of Lake Panorama is a relatively new option for charitable giving, having received 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in July 2014. The charity is completely separate from the LPA and LPN.
Friends of Lake Panorama’s current priority project is a new playground at Sunset Beach. Donations also can be made to six separate funds or a combination of funds. There is a general fund, plus funds for Lake Panorama National, Panorama West, Boulder Beach, Shady Beach and Sunset Beach. Donations can be made by check, electronically, or by donating securities. Learn more at friendsoflakepanorama.org. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How About a Fitness Center Membership?
If you made a New Year’s resolution to improve your health and perhaps lose some weight in 2016, consider a membership at the LPN fitness center. Cardiovascular and strength training equipment are available, including treadmills, life cycle bikes, elliptical cross-trainers and weight machines. A wall-mounted flat screen television will help make your workout a breeze. Memberships are $20 per month for a single, $30 for a couple and $40 for a family, with tax included.
The fitness center is available whenever the LPN is open. Paid members receive a programmed card that allows access to the fitness room, which is on the lower level of the LPN conference center adjacent to the pro shop. Membership applications can be picked up at the LPN front desk, or purchases can be made online.
