The activity committee hosted another Friday Night at The Farm, and more than 70 residents attended.
Some children and adults played games on the lawn, some practiced their putting on the indoor green, and some played board games or cards inside the amenity center.
The food truck, This is How We Roll, was on hand to feed the residents.
Legacy Nitro served great root beer and iced coffee, and of course Mister Softee was serving their ice cream.
Special thanks to Elise, Rochelle, Debra, Gregg, Shawn, Dan, Mike, Celeste, Joseph, and Mark who either assisted in setting up or cleaning up after this activity.
The activity committee appreciates everyone's assistance.
Don’t forget we will have another Friday Night at The Farm on Friday, Aug. 16 starting at 6 p.m. Come out and meet your neighbors, laugh, have some good food and play some games. Hope to see you there.

The grounds committee held its monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 9.
Grounds chairman Paul Hoppes reported the overall condition of The Farm is good.
It was reported the new playground items have been installed. These are for ages 3 to 5. Playground looks great.
The alcove by the soda machine has been painted and the fitness room is in good condition. They are waiting for replacement parts for the hoist machine.
The inspection of the ponds has been deferred, waiting on the new vendor.
The irrigation is running for the summer.
The American and POW flags have been replaced after being damaged in the storm.
The next meeting will be Tuesday, Aug. 13 at 4 p.m. in the amenity center. All residents are welcome.
On July 17, you may have noticed our flags at half-staff. This was a mark of respect for the memory and long-standing service of John Paul Stevens, retired associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
During the storm a few weeks back, the card system at the pools and amenity center had problems. The problem was quickly addressed, but one problem remained.
The management company was not able to issue new cards and add them to the system. This only affected new residents to The Farm. The guard was issued a list of new residents who were not able to receive new cards but were eligible to use our amenities. I think by now the problem has been solved.
I would like to take this time to thank everyone for their good wishes. Whether you stopped by, called, emailed, or said a prayer, I thank you all. My numbers are looking good.
I am always looking for items of interest.
