BEAR PRINTS • MAY 26, 2022

We’ve nearly reached the end of May, which means Memorial Day weekend is finally upon us! Before we get into the fun stuff, we’d like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the fallen heroes who gave their lives to defend our country. This weekend is a celebration in their honor, and we will never forget the ultimate sacrifice they made for us.

Be sure to join us for our monthly Homeowner’s Luncheon at the Lake Club tomorrow, May 27th. Come meet our new owner, Barbara Salk, our new Lodging Director, Cindy Flagler, and be the first to grab a can of our brand-new Bear Lake Blonde and Brown beers! Can't make it in person? Join us on Zoom! Meeting ID: 361 350 9732

In recent weeks, we have seen a noticeable increase in bear activity around property compared to recent years. We urge everyone on property to stay vigilant and follow all necessary precautions. This includes disposing of all trash properly and ensuring trash bins are locked. Thank you and stay safe!


Who’s ready for an extended weekend of Memorial Day fun in the sun? The main event is our Memorial Day Celebration on Friday 5/27 at The Amphitheater. We’ll have lawn games, live music from Matt Stillwell, delicious BBQ and pastries from Chef Santi and Chef G, and so much more. Admission is free, but be sure to skip the dinner line by purchasing your meal ticket on Simpletix. Use code BLRHOME5 for $5 off per ticket!


We also have a variety of other activities planned throughout the weekend including a golf tournament benefitting Folds of Honor, a flag folding service, a pool party, a viewing of the movie Top Gun under the stars, and more.
