We have some people in our village who are always on the go and looking for things to do besides participating in the regular activities available. Two guys, John and Allen, decided that the bamboo fence surrounding our special Japanese Zen Garden was starting to look a bit tatty. It had been erected over ten years ago and the bamboo was rotting. So they asked the powers to be if they could put up a new fence if the administration paid for the materials they would do the work. It was agreed.
So John, Allen and quite a few others pulled down the old fence and put up a new steel fence but they will install a new bamboo fence in the front of the garden to keep the authentic Japanese appearance.
I thought residents came here to retire and relax and play not work like crazy. But I think these two enjoy it very much.
