Update: What We Have Been Up To This Summer!!!

Happy Monday Everyone!! We can not believe how quickly this summer is going by!  We have had such a fun and busy summer. Our Facebook page captures much of what we have been up to, but we thought we’d give everyone a summary of what we have been up to this summer (aside from boating, watching beautiful sunsets at The Lakes, and helping people buy or sell their NextHome At The Lakes).

Early in June, we spent an afternoon handing out “NextHome At The Lakes” koozies at the Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce “Briefcase Open”. It was a beautiful Friday spent at Okoboji View Golf Course!

Also in June, we started our summer long contest called “Locate Luke At The Lakes”. We have been placing our mascot Luke at businesses in The Lakes area, as well as posting a weekly blog to our website with details of the contest and each week’s picture of where Luke is. The object of the contest is for participants to try and “locate” (guess) where Luke is by the picture we post each week. At the end of the summer, we will have a drawing for the grand prize!!!

In July, we had a giveaway for a $40 Bracco gift card. The giveaway started Monday, July 17th, and ended today – Monday, July 31st. In order to enter the giveaway, participants had to: 1.) “Like” our Facebook page. 2.) Share the giveaway post from our page. and 3.) Comment on the giveaway post with their favorite place to relax at The Lakes. We had so much fun doing the giveaway, and we want to thank everyone who participated!!!!

Also in July, we participated in the Milford Pioneer Days 125th Anniversary Celebration parade! We made a float and gave out candy, bubbles, and koozies! The weather was beautiful, and we had so much fun celebrating Milford’s 125th!
