Spring is finally here and everyone is busy with new home sales and community activities. As we are all working to increase our market share for manufactured and modular homes, we still need to gather together every so often to learn new things, to learn from each other and renew acquaintances.

Our traditional day of fun in the sun is just around the corner. Scores of members will gather for a summer picnic on August 9, 2017 at Drumlin’s Country Club in Syracuse, NY. It promises to be a day of lively conversation, laughter and camaraderie.

The day starts off with our Annual Golf Tournament at the prestigious East Course. Novice and ace golfers alike are invited to play. Entry fees include greens fees, golf cart, buffet & beverages and prizes.

Many association members join with the golfers in the afternoon for a sumptuous All American Buffet picnic in the Ballroom. Barbeque Beef, baked chicken, hot dogs, hamburger, fried clams, corn on the cob, baked beans, salt potatoes, cole slaw, steamed clams, macaroni salad, cookies, brownies and much, much more make a this a feast to be enjoyed!

A silent auction, door prizes, raffle and more adds to the fun of the day. Early bird rates for golf and the buffet expire on July 28th. The Embassy Suites Hotel, 6646 Old Collamer Road in East Syracuse is the host hotel. This all suite hotel features a swimming pool, exercise room, complementary manager’s reception from 5 pm – 7 pm daily and a complimentary cooked to order breakfast each day. A special group rate has been secured of $149 plus tax. The cutoff date for room reservations is July 12, 2017.
