Needs to Know Addresses It bears repeating that our postal address does not work well for GPS purposes. To get good directions to Sanlan from most computer programs, please use 3929 Bartow Road, 33812. A very specific version of Office (863) 665-1726 Ranger (863) 665-3028 U.S. Highway 98 works, but a stray keystroke or abbreviation will get our guests directions to north Lakeland. This has nothing to do with the mail address. The postal address remains 3929 U.S. Highway 98 South, Lakeland, FL, 33812. Be sure to include a lot number, and it would be a good idea to simply use the # sign instead of “Lot” or “No.” because some post offices are chopping off the last digit of our lot numbers in their forwarding information. Propane canisters A second factor on whether a propane canister can be refilled in Florida: It has to have an OPD valve, which is to say one of those triangular knobs with OPD on it. The round one with bottle-cap style scallops cannot be refilled. In addition, the in-service date on the top right corner of the metal lip that wraps around and guards the valve needs to not exceed the requirement specified in the bottom left corner, usually either 10 or 12 years. The closest location our staff knows for recertification or replacement is AmeriGas, 2228 E. Main St. It can be reached by turning left out of the park on to U.S. 98 (Bartow Road), right on Combee and then left on Main. (Note that there is also a street named after the State of Maine.) Sales, service, deliveries We very much appreciate the efforts our guests and your contractors have made to help us keep track of who is on the Sanlan grounds. Basically, all service and delivery persons need to sign the visitors register upon entering Sanlan. We do not permit soliciting guests on site. Please contact the office if in doubt about whether someone belongs here. This is a nuisance issue, but it also involves safety and security from fraud and theft. Visitors Similarly, our guests’ visitors need to sign in at the Sanlan office. We want to treat your guests as our guests, but should note that unless a contract stipulates otherwise, there is a $2 per day charge for an extra vehicle and a $3 per day charge for each overnight or swimming guest. We have had a couple of incidents of permanent residents’ tenants not notifying us they are on site. Sanlan is supposed to have a record of every occupant – guests, residents, and the residents’ tenants. The natural trails are open to the public after signing in at the Sanlan office, but only park guests are allowed to fish here. Golf carts A reminder: All of our carts must be driven by licensed drivers at least age 21. Outside and guestowned carts can be driven by licensed drivers at least 16. All passengers must be seated in the cart at all times; No standing, lying down or hanging off the cart. Racing or horseplay is prohibited. Guest-owned or outside carts must be in good condition and have regular golf cart tires. We do not permit knobby tires on our grounds, particularly our trails. Walkers Rule A gentle reminder: Pedestrians, including animals, have the right of way on our grounds and out trails. Please be mindful and cautious whether operating an RV, truck, car, golf cart or bicycle. RV parking A Sanlan employee needs to accompany all vehicle activity in the RV Parking area. This can be arranged by stopping by or telephoning the Sanlan office at (863) 665-1726. Pools The two swimming pools and wading pool close when the air temperature drops below 70°F. The pools open at 9 a.m. if the air temperature allows,and at some point later in the day once the threshold is reached. When volunteers help us to keep the solar blankets in place, the pools open until dusk. ⟲ Around the Park Strawberry Social The Strawberry Social will not be held this year. Shari Stephens, its longtime chairwoman, writes: “I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Strawberry Social for the past nine years. This event was a great success because of dedicated Sanlan volunteers. “Because of your help, wer are able to donate $1,200 toward a scholarship grant for a senior at George Jenkins High School.
