December is the season of togetherness, family, and reflecting on all that happened this year.
We’ve so enjoyed having all our guests – that includes you – down to the Lake of the Ozarks!
Even though December isn’t known as the “peak” time at the lake, we’re grateful for those who are making the trek with their families or friends to stay with us. If you’re planning a last minute getaway for 2013, be sure to search for our properties that have fireplaces and/or a hot tub! There’s no better way to stay cozy during your vacation!
A few weeks ago, we wrote about some of the “you don’t want to miss out” events at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Here are a few to add to your list in case you’re coming down to visit!
FREE 65th Anniversary Concert at Bridal Cave | Thursday, October 17th:Bridal Cave is one of the Lake of the Ozarks’ true treasures. Centuries ago the Osage Native American Indians discovered the pristine beauty that lies beneath Thunder Mountain. Local folklore tells of a legendary Native American Indian wedding ceremony held in the cave in the early 1800s. If THAT hasn’t got your attention, the live music will be Seven Bridges Road, the PREMIERE Eagles tribute band. For more information, check out the flyer for the event here.
5K Walk for World Sight Challenge 2013 | Sunday, October 27th: Head on over to the Laurie Fairgrounds for this World Sight Day, the largest annual global fundraising campaign to address avoidable blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses. The event is hosted by Family Eyecare Associates. To participate, all you need to pay is a $25 registration, which gets you a commemorative t-shirt, food and prizes!
