Summer Recap!

We cannot believe how quickly summer flew by! Our summer was busy, but we had so much fun! We are looking forward to what fall has to bring.

We keep our Facebook page updated with everything we’ve got going on, but we thought we’d also create a recap where you can find everything we’ve done this summer in one place. If you’re interested in what we did this summer, continue reading below!

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 placed our mascot Luke at businesses in The Lakes area and posted a weekly blog to our website with details of the contest and each week’s picture of where Luke was. The object of this contest was for participants to try and “locate” (guess) where Luke was by the picture we posted each week. The beginning of September marked the end of “Locate Luke At The Lakes”, and we announced the winner last week on our Facebook page. We hope those who participated enjoyed locating Luke, and we want to thank those who participated!

In July, we had a giveaway for a $40 Bracco gift card. The giveaway started Monday, July 17th, and ended 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 also announced the winner on our Facebook page. 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!

In August, we focused on updating our website so it can be used as a resource for all things Okoboji and Okoboji real estate!

As you can see, we always had something going on this summer. If you’d like to stay updated with everything we have going on, be sure to “Like” our page on Facebook – NextHome At The Lakes!
