To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Points West Resort, a day of activities was held Saturday. The event began with a pancake breakfast enjoyed by about 100 people in the morning.

Then at 2 p.m. everyone gathered to watch gaily dressed children ride their decorated bikes, led by John Younie, president of the condo board, through streets at the resort, which is located just west of Willow Springs subdivision.

The youngsters were then treated to ice cream sundaes and games.

Evening events included a dinner for which over 100 tickets were sold, followed by an outside dance. Younie complimented the social committee members who “worked tremendously” on the festivities.

The resort has 116 lots.
