Schools are back in session just as the weather is finally starting to cool off here at Abita Springs. The northern winds are blowing a cool breeze and the migrant flocks of birds are headed south for the winter. As the resort slows from the busy summer months, this is an excellent time to bring the pets and come relax, enjoy the peace and quiet, or go for a stroll around the park!
We have been working continuously on updates around the resort. For starters, new picnic tables and a much needed WiFi upgrade have taken place! Perhaps, more noticeable, the entrance to the clubhouse and the parking area have been paved, and several loads of gravel have been brought in to rebuild roads and level sites. In our clubhouse, members are enjoying newly remodeled showers and bathrooms, a new paint job, and a new A/C unit keeping the place nice and cool!
Over the summer, we had several dads impress the judges by participating in the Father’s Day barbecue cookoff! The 4th of July was packed with activities ranging from parades and pool parties to cake walks and apple pie contests. Rounding out the summer, members enjoyed a resort-wide luau which included tie dying, dancing, and lots of memories, fun, and laughter!
This fall, we will continue some renovations on cabins and we have plans to renovate the back bath house. Abita Springs’ weekends are full of fun activities, including Clint’s Canvas Creations and Cajun Line Dancing! September 29th, Tammany Humane Society will be here for a pet adoption day. Members can come and check out the animals and maybe adopt one. Coming up, October is sure to be great fun with our Halloween Celebration and in November, we are having a special celebration for our Veteran’s and shortly thereafter, a Thanksgiving Day feast! Come on out and celebrate with us!
