LPN Weekly - 3/22/15

Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt is April 5

The third annual LPN Easter egg hunt will be Sunday, April 5, adjacent to the conference center, beginning at 10 a.m. sharp. Bring the kids and grandkids and enjoy the fun! This is open to all children, not just those attending the brunch. The annual Easter brunch will be served 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., with seatings scheduled every half hour. The cost is $15.95 for adults, $8.95 for children 5-12 and free for children 4 and under. Since the kitchen staff will be busy preparing for the brunch, the regular breakfast menu won't be available that morning. For reservations, call 641-755-2080.

Friday Night Fish and Shrimp Buffet

Two weeks remain for the Friday night fish and shrimp Lenten special being offered at The Links until Easter. Besides the fish and shrimp, the buffet includes dinner rolls, a salad bar, red potatoes and a dessert. The cost is $12.95, plus tax and gratuity. This buffet has been very popular, so join the crowd at The Links this Friday!

Thanks to Blood Donors

A total of 28 people, including six first-time donors, participated last week in the Panora Community blood drive, sponsored by Lake Panorama National. Another 12 donors signed in at the Iowa LifeServe Bloodmobile, but were unable to donate due to eligibility issues, mostly low iron levels. The donations included 24 whole blood procedures and four double red cell procedures. The donations from this drive could help save 84 lives. Thanks to the donors, volunteers, and those who came planning to donate but were deferred until a future time. You all made a difference!

Have You Joined for 2015?

Both Lake Panorama National and Panorama West golf courses now are open for play. If you haven't yet paid your 2015 membership fees, the time to do so is NOW! Those who were course members in 2014 would have received billing statements last December. LPA members who join annually receive a discount over non-members at both courses. New members joining in 2015 who were not members in 2014 can join at discounted promotional rates to encourage more annual memberships.

At the LPN, besides the regular memberships for either LPA members or non-members, there are two other membership categories. Special memberships are for those who were not LPN golf members in 2014, and distance memberships are for people who are not LPA members and who reside more than 18 miles from the LPN. The three golf membership forms are here. At Panorama West, new members joining in 2015 can receive these promotional rates — singles at $168.53, couples at $258.41, families at $308.96 and students under 16 for $44.94. The Panorama West new member form is here.

LPN pro shop hours now are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, depending on weather and course traffic. For non-members, green fees for March are $38 plus tax, which includes a cart seat. The Panorama West pro shop is not yet open for the season. Non-members can pay their $16 green fees at the outdoor kiosk near the first tee.
