We are fast approaching the chilly fall season, soon termination dust will appear on the Chugach Range. We all have mixed emotions each year as our long daylight hours fade and the warm sunshine is replaced with a cool breeze and, the changing color of our trees. And the first snowfall will soon follow. As we head into the busy holiday season, this year will have a unique set of challenges as we continue with our social distancing activities. We are determine to make things fun and interesting for everyone, whatever our circumstances. You can see one of our many events featured on page 4. In October we will be busy with Oktoberfest, our 1 Year Anniver-sary, Halloween and a calendar filled with our monthly schedule. Highlights for October are on page 2, check out our calendar for additional areas that may be of interest.
Building Construction Update
Construction is nearly completed. The concrete patio deck floor will be ready for us to walk on soon, if all goes as planned. Watching the workers progress has been a source of unexpected entertainment during the process. Cranes, welding, painting and everything in-between to create a fabulous deck for entertaining in 2021 post COVID. It should be finished so we can take a few pho-tos before the snow flies and in time for us to celebrate our first anniversary at the end of the month.
We are continuing with our virtual tours for anyone interested in viewing our Baxter community.
