News from Ted

TedLast weekend was Nude-A-Palooza VII. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger every year. We had tents and cars and people just everywhere, all weekend. It looked a bit like Parrothead.

The weather was absolutely beautiful as hundreds of guests filled in the lakefront lawn. Throughout the day, talented tribute artists took the stage as: The Blues BrothersJim Croce, Sheryl Crow, AdeleTom Petty, and The Beach Boys.

Inside, A Taste Of Love took the stage from 4-8 PM for wonderful dinner & dancing. DJ Xavier ran the After Party from 8 to midnight.

The event raised approximately $21,000, bringing our 7 year total to over $115,000! Of course, Herman was responsible for about 10% of that all on his own with his Cheesecake Sale. Thanks again, Herman!

Rock Pink also provided a Mobile Mammography vehicle on Sunday to give back to the community. I'd say we partnered with the right charity!


This weekend is our legendary Halloween Party & Costume Contest. We have Live Flute w/ Susan on Thursday, but Friday is all about Halloween.

First, we have Kids Trick or Treating around the Cove from 5-7 PM, followed by the Kids Halloween Party in the Clubhouse from 7-9 PM.

The adults will enjoy our Halloween Party & Costume Contest in the Lakeside Restaurant with Live Music by Silas Graves & The Crypt Kickers. The Costume Contest kicks off at 9 PM with prizes (Dinner for 2) for Scariest, Funniest, and Best Overall.

Stick around Saturday night for a Dance w/ DJ Xavier.


Our second building is now fully remodeled and will officially open this weekend! If you haven't seen the new rooms yet, they are quite an upgrade. Tile floors, granite countertops, ceiling fans, and all new everything!   :)

New Rooms


I'm hoping to be able to preview our new Cypress Cove Community Channel next week. It will be a channel on all Brighthouse televisions, including those in the campground and residential park, that will list our daily calendar and upcoming events. I think it will be really nice. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: I ran into a slight delay. The equipment the cable company provided was not high def and it looked bad. They are sending me a card to upgrade it to high definition. I should be able to deploy it fully in the next week or two (at most).


Around the Cove this week:

Have you got your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" t-shirt yet?

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
One of our wonderful members in Saskatchewan!

By the way, I just want to thank everyone for doing this. It has been so much fun getting new pictures from exotic locations all over the US and the world! We have the absolute best, most loyal members I can imagine. I am so grateful.

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
