Katrina report from AANR (see

From the desk of Pat Plumstead, Executive Assistant –

We have as a community experienced yet another loss to our clubs and Friends of AANR in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. LA Pines Ranch, located only 45 miles from New Orleans, continues to be under water. The members retreated to safer ground. Unfortunately, Linda Piety owner of Running Bare B&B in Long Beach, Mississippi, told us that her Inn is no longer there.

Offers of help and support have come into the office in Kissimmee. Many of our clubs are holding hurricane relief efforts. Paradise Lakes (866-794-6683) set up a raffle for this Labor Day weekend. Bring a bag of basic living necessities, canned goods, toiletries and other essentials and get a raffle ticket to enter a drawing for a free one year membership. Caliente (800-326-7731) is dedicating this month’s fundraiser to Hurricane Relief. A collection box will be in their lobby with a measuring thermometer – let’s put it over the TOP! Sunny Rest in Palmerton, PA has “Operation Sunny Rescue” to collect donations to be sent to the American Red Cross. Their goal is $5000.00 and management will match 10% of the amount raised Labor Day Weekend. Contact Sunny Rest at 610-377-2911.

Riviera Naturist Resort (850-994-3665) in Pace, Florida, located in Florida’s panhandle is searching for members in Louisiana and Mississippi. Also, Sunburst Resort (850-675-6807) in Milton Florida tells us that they are trying to contact many of their members who live in the affected areas.

Many individuals and clubs have also called with offers of lodging and work. Please call the AANR office regarding these situations.
