  • Celebrating the 4th of July in The Cove - In Honor of Stan Liles

    United We STANd!

    2021 4th of July Celebration in The Cove

    Thank you for coming!

    Lou Liles & Family

    We could not have had this event without our family and friends who turned out to help with all that goes into making it a great success! Thank you for all the help and all the "Stan" memories the 4th always brings to mind.
    Keep scrolling down for more information and photos about this fun event.
  • 2021 - 4th of July

    Celebrating the 4th of July Hosted by Lou Liles and Family

    Lou Liles and many wonderful, helpful volunteers, family, and friends pulled off an amazing 4th of July tribute in honor of the late Stan Liles with a theme of “United We STANd”!

    Acknowledgements by Ken Black, POA President

    As Ken mentioned in his acknowledgements - Thank you everyone who was able to attend. It is always a pleasure to see your faces, and as mentioned at the dinner, to shake your hand following the 14+ month shutdown.


    Ken Black acknowledged:

    1. The Forest Cove POA Officers: Dennis Hamlin, VP; Phil Kurkoski, Treasurer; and Karen Black, Secretary.
    2. All those who worked for days/weeks/months in advance to make the event a success. Many hours go into planning and preparing for the 4th of July celebration. Your neighbors go the extra mile - cleaning, treating for ants, buying and preparing the food, and much more.
    3. Much gratitude to all those who pitched in on the cleaning and prep of the clubhouse and surrounding areas before and after the event.
    4. Park beach area clean up - Mike Therrill and Duane Crawford volunteered to clean the beach the week before and right up to the date of the event. Duane Crawford voluntarily keeps the park free of logs and debris on an ongoing basis simply to help his neighbors. The amount of debris has been horrific this year due to the heavy rains.
    5. Lou Liles and their family for hosting the clebration. 


    Fishing Tournament

    Dennis Hamlin worked with the children on their tournament this year. He said for anyone who didn't make it, they were missing out! Seven children, under the age of 12, showed up for the Children's Fishing Tournament in spite of the light rain. Three of them placed in the contest as follows:

    1. Rylan caught the first fish
    2. Casan caught the biggest fish - 13"
    3. Levi caught the most - 8

    Dog Contest

    We had many beautiful, sweet dogs join in the contest this year! Winners were:

    1. Best Trick - Luna Wulf
    2. Best Costume - Izzy Washbish
    3. Best Wag - Memphis Hodde


    Thanks to everyone who turned out for the parade this year - all those who entered the parade and all those who came out to cheer them on! Thank you to JoAnn and Barb who gave us permission to go through their property so we could get to Section 2. Winners of the parade were:

    1. 1st - Ron Archer & Melinda Dye
    2. 2nd - Ken, Karen & Kalena Black

    House Decorating

    It's always fun to see our neighbors get into the spirit with creative house decorating ideas! Winners were:

    1. Lou Liles
    2. Ron Archer & Melinda Dye
    3. Gus & Denise Greeley

    Chalk Judging

    In spite of the wet canvas this year, we have a winner!

    • Steve and Saundra Hartgrove

    Cake Auction

    Tough to choose the best from all the clever designs applied to all of the cakes that were entered! Winners for the cakes are:

    1. Show Stopper - Auction Item 6 entered by Caroline, a member of the Liles family
    2. Most Inspirational - Auction Item 8 entered by the Holland family
    3. Best Decorated - Auction Item 11 entered by Vina Wulf


    The Fireworks Team headed by Gary Wulf also included Bill Hodde and Phil Kurkoski. They blow us away every year with the beautiful fireworks off the pier out over the water.


    Fireworks were tricky to get this year due to shortages. Our regular vendor was not able to help us out. Between Gary Wulf and Ken Black though, some good deals were found to help make this event the success it was! Thanks to all who helped.


    We can use some volunteers to help next year. Please sign up early if you are interested and be part of this amazing team!
