WELCOME TO HOLIDAY PARK!
Holiday Park has some wonderful ways for you to enjoy your time here. Whether you are a full-time resident, a temporary renter, or a visitor, you can participate in the activities. All current offerings and their contact persons are listed on Page 2 of each month’s Holiday Park Association Newsletter. Whatever your interests are, you will probably find several others who also enjoy the same ones. To help you, this brochure will give you a brief synopsis of each activity and the time and place of meeting. Enjoy your time in our wonderful Holiday Park.
All Holiday Park Residents should become familiar with CHANNEL 195. This is the Park’s easiest source of information about what is going on each day and what guidelines are essential for such things as Park Speed Limit, the pond Alligator, required permits for making any changes to your home’s exterior, etc.
All residents (Home Owners, Renters, Guests) should read the monthly Holiday Park Association Newsletter which tells what is planned for the coming month. This Newsletter also lists all the activities, the current chairperson, and that chairperson’s telephone number. For additional information on any activity, please call the person listed.
The Holiday Park Homeowners’ Association hopes Channel 195, this website, & the Monthly Newsletter will keep you informed about what is going on in the park.
