Landenberg Life Spring/Summer 202105/20/2021 11:37AM ● By Tricia Hoadley
We’ve dedicated a significant number of pages in this issue of Landenberg Life to the exciting story about the plans for the new Splash Surf Club at the pool area of the former Saint Anthony in the Hills site. Everyone in the area is looking forward to the opening, and we wanted to feature a story about the project, which will transform the long-dormant facility into a high-end swim club bursting with activities, food and entertainment.
Landenberg is the home to several terrific wineries and vineyards, and this issue takes an optimistic look ahead at the warm-weather agendas for Harvest Ridge, Paradocx Vineyard, and Va La Vineyards as they plan for the next few months.
In this issue, you’ll also meet Kristin M. Wistar, sacred lifestyle designer, beauty seer, truth seeker, vision keeper and transformational hostess. Wistar utilizes her expertise in energy to help homeowners, homebuyers, business owners and other interested clients to make the most of the places where they live and work.
We’re pleased to feature a story about Reins of Life, a Vandenberg-based organization that offers a world of opportunities to those facing challenges. We talk to Judy Freedman Hendrickson, the founder of Reins of Life, about its mission to “enhance the physical, emotional, and cognitive abilities of children, young adults, and adults with special needs and life challenges through the experience of equestrian therapy in a pleasant and natural environment.”
The subject of the Q & A is Monsignor Francis Depman, who presides over his flock at St. Rocco Church. He has presided there since the church was built in 2011, having moved to the new position from the one he had held as the regional priest to the Hispanic community out of Mision Santa Maria in Avondale. He is widely admired and is known to all as Father Frank.
Like many of us, Landenberg artist Nanci Hersh has spent the last year speaking, and looking, into her computer screen. She has turned the faces she saw into art, and the result is a stunning portrait of moments in time.
We're very pleased to be sharing the stories in this issue of Landenberg Life with you. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions for future stories. We’re already hard at working planning the next issue of the magazine, which will arrive in the fall of 2021.
