Pluses and Minuses
As I understand it Magnolia Village bears little resemblance to the park we all enjoyed last season as it has transitioned to a family park instead of a 55+ park.
There are some pluses as the dumpster is being emptied regularly, the pool is being maintained by a pool service which comes twice a week to service it and at least up to this point the lawns have been mowed. The office area and front of Allen Hall have been painted and the office modernized. Those are all good things for sure.
There are, however, more people with for sale signs in their yards and others who are thinking of moving their units out. Marge Soole and DA & Kathy Baustian have for sale signs in their yards and I imagine they will be going to the same place, wherever that might be as DA is Marge's son.
There are lots of kids in the pool which is only to be expected especially in the summer. Do keep in mind that when the Winter Texans return school will be back in session so that will be a somewhat different scenario.
I think that most of the people who have had health issues or surgeries are recovering and some are in rehab which I imagine could be a long process.
There was a heck of a storm Monday night and I believe the Donna/Weslaco area received around 8 inches of rain but the park did not flood as badly as it did last summer thank goodness.
If any of you have news or a "happening" you would like to share with your Magnolia friends, please let me know and I will be happy to post it on the blog.
