LPN Resort Weekly - 8/5/2018

Lunch Seating Limited this Wednesday 

Lake Panorama National will be hosting the annual PEO Luncheon and Style Show this Wednesday, August 8. This large event will fill both the banquet and dining rooms, which means other seating will be limited to the bar area during normal lunch hours. We're grateful to the PEO group for again choosing the LPN to host this special fundraising event! 

This is Ryder Cup Week

The 2018 Irv Gerlich Memorial Ryder Cup kicks off Thursday with a 6:30 p.m. stag event. Teams will be announced, and shirts/caps and pairings distributed. Golf begins Friday with an 11 a.m. shotgun. An LPN employee shootout will be that evening about 5 p.m., with spectators welcome. Saturday is another 11 a.m. shotgun start, followed by a 5 p.m. shootout featuring the 12 low gross and 12 low net players. The event wraps up Sunday, with singles matches beginning at 10 a.m. Direct questions to team captains Steve Ahrendsen and Jason Grossman. 

NOTE: As part of the Ryder Cup, live music will be played on the deck of the LPN swimming pool both Friday and Saturday evening. Permission was received from the LPA Board of Directors to extend the live music past the normal deadline of 11 p.m., up to midnight both nights. The extension will only be used if the shootout goes longer than expected, and the music event can't start on time. 

Adjusted Pool Hours

The Lake Panorama National pool will host a private party on Saturday, August 11, from 10 a.m. to noon. During this time the pool will be closed to members, public and resort guests. The pool will reopen promptly at noon. Thanks for understanding.

LPN Dining Room Open House Saturday

The family of a former Panora dentist and Lake Panorama resident has made a donation in his memory that's being used to update the LPN dining room. Dr. David Wang drowned in Lake Panorama August 17, 2002. Earlier this year, the Wang family donated $10,000 to Friends of Lake Panorama, and asked the money be used at Lake Panorama National. After consulting with LPN staff, they decided a major portion of the donation would be used in the LPN dining room. The updates will include new artwork, chairs, tables, water goblets and centerpieces. 

This Saturday, August 11, Dr. Wang’s wife, Grace, and their two children, Tony and Cassie, will be present for an open house in the LPN dining room from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. This is a come-and-go event, with light refreshments available. Please stop by to see the updates, and join us as we say thanks to the Wang family for their support!
