Laugh of the Week



Cove News  


As we round the bend capping off another difficult year, we are about to enter a season of gratitude and giving. It is in this spirit that Cypress Cove would like to re-introduce a Holiday countdown of sorts, affectionately dubbed “Blessings of The Cove”— a period of supporting those in our nudist family who have the greatest need in consideration of these trying times.

Through the end of the year, we are inviting Cypress Cove residents and members to write to us and tell us of their need. How have you been severely impacted by COVID-19? What do you think would help you most during this difficult time? Each week, we will choose a letter and will respond with assistance and support. You can either drop off a letter to the Main Office, care of Peter Sewall, or email Peter at CoveBlessings@cypresscoveresort.com.

Cypress Cove has enjoyed a long history of community support both participating in, and spearheading, various events ranging in size and reach. It is the members of our naturist community that have enabled growth and success through the years. As such, we thought it was important to finish the year with full focus on this community—those of you “inside the gate.” It can be hard to ask for help, but please let us know if you have an exceptional need. It is our goal to make your holiday season a little bit brighter.

We already know that the Cypress Cove nudist community has a big heart and a philanthropic spirit, so we’d encourage those of you who are not in need to lend support to your friends and neighbors during this time.  If you'd like to help us expand our efforts, you may do so at this link; simply select Blessings of The Cove Donation.  We want “Blessings of The Cove” to spill over into all corners of our amazing community.

With thanks and gratitude, 

Peter Sewall
General Manager

This week's blessing recipient: 

To Be Determined...


A Thank You from the Staff

   

Our staff gathered last week to celebrate the holidays while enjoying some old-fashioned fellowship. Gifts & donations arrived at the office from far and wide. These gifts that you all so graciously donated were raffled off at our holiday luncheon with enough items to provide each employee in attendance a gift. Again, I cannot express the gratitude I have for all of you who have shown my team so much love and generosity through this difficult year. Our Cove community, members, and visitors are wonderful. 

Peter Sewall
General Manager

Fond Memories of Cypress Cove

We love when people share memories of their time at Cypress Cove. Here is a special memory from Vince who reminisces about his marriage proposal stay. Do you have a wonderful memory that you'd like to share with us? Send it to Newsletter@CypressCoveResort.Com

I don’t have a photo to share, but I would like to share a very special memory of Cypress. My wife’s first nudist experience was at Cypress Cove in 2011. I’ve been a nudist since the late 1970s. In 2012, for her December birthday, we decided to spend a few days at Cypress. The weather was beautiful, so we spent our days by the west pool. On her birthday, laying out in a beautiful clear blue sky, 80 degree day, I proposed to her with a gold band with white and yellow gold hearts tied together. But that wasn’t the only good part of this visit. That evening we decided to have dinner at Lakeside Restaurant. You know that dream people have where they show up somewhere and they are the only one naked? Well, that happened to me. That particular evening was pretty cool, so my wife wore a wrap to keep warm. I carried a towel to sit on for dinner, (for me, coming to Cypress is to be nude as much as possible). Being mid December, the place was packed with Snow Birds. As we were talking to the hostess about seating, I looked around and it seemed all eyes were on us. The restaurant was maybe half full, and everyone was dressed. A couple came up to us and asked if I knew I was naked? Kind of a silly question, but whatever. I replied that I thought this was a Nudist Resort and why is everyone dressed. We all had a good laugh about it. So even though I’d been a nudist more than 35 years at that point, I have to admit it was a little strange being the only naked person in the room. As dinner was finishing up, the music started and more people began to disrobe, dance and have fun. It was such a great time for us, oh and she did say YES!! 

Thank you for all for all that you do for your guests. 

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.   

Vince

Library Seeks Additional Volunteer Help 

Staffing needs at the American Nudist Research Library have changed over the last few weeks as volunteers have stepped forward.  We could still use:

  • A treasurer.  Experience preferred.
  • Someone with people skills to be our Membership Chairperson.
  • One or more material scanners. (Could be a seasonal resident or visitor)
  • Someone to locate and physically paste in missing pages. (Could be seasonal)
  • Regular librarians to run the library one afternoon a week. (Resident or seasonal)

If you would like to help in a worthy cause, please pop into the library on a Tuesday afternoon to discuss your interests and time available with library president, Paul LeValley (paullevalley@peoplepc.com).

Gordon Ramsay’s Road Trip: European Vacation’ Takes Gordon to a Nudist Beach to His Surprise

Did anyone watch this awkward first-time experience? Kudos for not fainting, Gordon.

"For as adventurous as the celebrity chef is in the kitchen, he’s definitely not as enthusiastic about being surrounded by naked people in public — and for sure not about to take off his own swimsuit." Read the full story HERE.


Taking it all off promotes body acceptance, naturist resort owner says

Great interview, Stephane!

"Stéphane Deschênes is the owner of Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in East Gwillimbury and was recently elected the first-ever Canadian president of the International Naturist Federation. When you have a conversation with Stéphane Deschênes you notice a lot of things about his appearance. You notice his warm smile puts everyone around him at ease, how his eyes twinkle from behind his black-rimmed eyeglasses when he's describing his life's work, and of course, there's that unforgettably fantastic and hard-to-miss, white handlebar mustache." Read the full story HERE.
