Mark and Karen Einck are shown on the basketball court at Boulder Beach. They donated $26,000 to help make the addition of a basketball court possible.
A donor recognition sign was added to the Boulder Beach Sports Courts complex in mid-September. The sign recognizes private donors of $500 or more who contributed to the three-year fundraising campaign that began in 2014 and ended in 2017. During that time, Friends of Lake Panorama raised $75,000 for the courts. The Lake Panorama Association provided an additional $100,000 to complete the project this summer.
Rich Deardorff was teaching three grandchildren the game of pickleball at the Boulder Beach sports courts July 4. Garrett and Jensen Walsh of Lincoln and their cousin Quincy Keenan of Clive were fast learners. Deardorff owns a Boulder Cove Colony condo, and has a permanent residence in Grand Island, Nebraska.
Russell and Susan Johnson, joined by their children and grandchildren, visited Boulder Beach July 4 for a friendly half-court basketball competition. The Johnsons have had a home at Lake Panorama for 10 years, plus their permanent residence in Red Oak. Susan Johnson called the new sports courts a “great facility.”
P.J. and Barb Connor played tennis with their children Zach and Hope Prouty July 4. It was their first time on the new tennis court, but clearly not their first time playing tennis together. The family recently purchased a summer home at Lake Panorama, while having a permanent residence in Arkansas.
Donations from friends of Lynn Reinicke were used to place a bench in his memory at the sports courts. The bench faces south, towards the pickleball and tennis courts. Lynn and his wife Jan were long-time residents of Lake Panorama. Lynn passed away in June 2017. Jan Reinicke has served on the Friends of Lake Panorama board since it was formed in 2013, and is the nonprofit’s current president.
