Don a philosopher and researcher relaxes with books, his interests and knowledge on nearly every subject from sports and players, to cultures and religions are amazing. Theresa loves walks on the beach, nature singing in all its’ forms, cooking, home decorating, gardening, and connection with family and friends. She’s authored a children’s book, ‘It Was My Star’- a ‘feel good’ inspirational book.
Luke Pentz and Jessica Cooper are Heron Club’s new assistant managers, a team that sprinkles joy wherever they go. They work together in amazing sinc getting things done quickly. Whether it’s remodeling an apartment or landscaping, their job is always well done. We’re delighted to have them at the Heron Club. On days off, you might see them long boarding on the river path, or skydiving, or simply meet them on a hike or campground in the forest.
They both love adventure, travel and a good time.
