Wednesday, January 27, 2016, the County of Imperial celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Sunbeam Lake RV Resort in Seeley.Â Â District 3 Supervisor Michael Kelley and RV Park Manager Ed McGrew addressed a crowd of 150 resort residents in attendance.
â€œItâ€™s wonderful to see the great turnout we received at todayâ€™s celebration, including the enthusiasm and excitement of the park residents,â€ said Supervisor Kelley.Â â€œThe winter visitors, those we affectionately refer to as Snowbirds, make such a positive impact to the community by spending locally.Â I am happy to have had the opportunity to welcome and thank them today.â€
Adding to the celebration was an exhibition of the musical talents of the Seeley Elementary School Band.Â The Sunbeam Lake RV Resort is a close-knit, sociable community.Â About 85% of the park is consisted of winter visitors from northern, colder states and Canada.Â The rest are permanent residents of the county.Â It is estimated, that there are currently about 600 residents at the RV Resort.Â Various recreational programs and activities are offered to the residents, including sports, such as softball and pickle ball, exercise activities such as aqua aerobics and line dancing, games, such as Bingo and Shuffleboard, and other clubs and weekly gatherings that are organized among the park residents.Â
The County of Imperial acquired the leasehold interest in the Sunbeam Lake RV Park in Seeley in August of 2011.Â Following the Countyâ€™s acquisition of the RV Park, the County completed some improvements to the property and then hired RVMGMT, LLC. through a property management agreement in order to provide management services for the RV Park and continues to do so under contract with the County of Imperial.
