It wasn’t a good day or evening for the family swim night. Thanks to the food trucks Brazuka Bowls and Mr. Softee, the night was not a complete washout. They stayed on site from 6 – 8 p.m. serving the brave hearts who showed up.

The Farm resident May Barr spent two hours by the pool entertaining the youngsters. A few games were played inside the clubhouse, but all the games scheduled for outside were canceled.

Friday night, June 21 is Friday Night in the Farm from 6 – 8 p.m. Ezee Cheese and Mr. Softee will be on hand for dinner. Come out and mingle with your neighbors.

The Farm news: The first casualty of the widening of Carolina Forest Boulevard happened a few days ago when Southern Asphalt hit a 2-inch sprinkler main while installing signage. It was quickly repaired by Streamline lawn service. We will have our sprinkler people check to see if any of our perimeter sprinklers have to be relocated.

A new electrical fan has been installed in the main pool pump house, and a new circuit has been installed in the security closet.

The additional playground equipment is on site, and the bolts needed for fastening them down have been purchased. We are now waiting for the concrete foundations to be poured and the equipment will be installed. These are for children ages 3 to 5.

Thirteen ponds have had their shorelines trimmed. More will be done in the days ahead. The sidewalk repair on Wheatfield Drive was held up to all the rain. It may be complete by now.

I know Veterans Day is a long way off, but the activity committee wants to plan a celebration for The Farm’s veterans. Nothing definite has been decided at this point, but they would like to compile a list of The Farm’s veterans.

George Karaganeas will be making a list for the committee. If you are a veteran of any branch of the U.S. military, please send your branch of the service, years of service, and rank to George at I will post this monthly until we have a list of all veterans.

Some of you may know past Farm residents Bill and Nancy McCormick. Nancy tragically passed away from ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Bill is co-hosting a charity golf event in Nancy's honor.

Gail Adams told me Nancy started a cookie exchange before Christmas which brought many of her neighbors together.

All proceeds will go to the ALS Association. It will be held at Indigo Creek Golf Club on Saturday, Sept. 14.

It will be a captain’s choice format with a light breakfast, a $20 gift card to a PGA Superstore, 30-minute free session in the Performance Center at a PGA Superstore, 18 holes of golf and cart, free after golf BBQ lunch, raffle prizes, and live music by Paul Grimshaw.

Cost is $80 per person or $300 for a team.

I will also post this again in August. Contact Bill McCormack at 339-832-8666 for application forms.

Last week’s golf winners were Mike Sachwald, Glen Muzroll, Dale Mosher, and Ralph Cairl coming in at 6 under par.

Second place went to Mark Sutton, George Karaganeas, Tom Connelly, and Tom Greibec at 5 under par.

I am always looking for items of interest. Email to

Till next time.
