family vacations, golf getaways

A huge “Thank You” to PPL and all of the private electrical contractors who are working so feverishly around-the-clock to restore power to the masses.


A heartfelt “hoorah” to the National Guard, to the volunteer and paid fire Departments, Rescue personnel, ambulance companies, and every single person who has extended the hand of help to neighbors and strangers alike.


You are all a big blessing.


“We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, ‘Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone’s plea. You have a part to play. Have faith.’ We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance.” ~ by Author Joan Wester Anderson .


family reunions, class tripsHurricane Sandy didn’t teach us to care about one another, she’s just the impetus that brought us together.


You are all in our prayers.


Woodloch Pines CEO and owner John Kiesendahl shared the following words Wednesday morning. (Woodloch’s power was fully restored Tuesday evening.)

To our friends and guests,

This historic storm has left a path of destruction across nearly a third of the United States, none more so than in the neighborhoods of our closest friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this catastrophe. We sincerely hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and sound.

Woodloch has been fortunate to have the storm pass us with minimal damage. As of this morning, our power has been fully restored and our team is working hard to clean up trees and debris across our property and the community. We are eager to return to a full schedule of fun activities and provide a warm, comfortable retreat for all.

These challenging times remind us how valuable and important family is. On behalf of the entire Woodloch family, we want you to know that we stand with you and look forward to brighter days ahead.
