August 2020 Board Update

The Timberlake Corn Roast, which has been hosted by the Dietzen Family on Labor Day weekend for dozens of years, has been postponed this year – due to the limitation on gatherings in the current environment.

This special tradition of our community was upheld for years by Paul and Candy Dietzen.  Paul took over duties as head corn roaster from former Timberlaker Mike Nelson, who like Paul had grown up on the neighborhood, and whose father Harry Nelson had started it all decades ago.

In recognition of the extensive involvement and extraordinary contributions to our community that Paul made, the Timberlake Civic Association board last month authorized the dedication of the open shelter at the Timberlake Beach property, to be named the Paul Dietzen Memorial Pavilion.

A dedication ceremony program is being planned for the coming months, which may coincide with a re-scheduled Corn Roast evening later in the fall or it may be held as a separate event.  A group of neighbors and friends are donating a new cupola with a sailboard-themed wind vane for the roof of the pavilion, reflecting one of Paul’s favorite pastimes.

Watch for an announcement of more details soon, or contact any Board Member if you’re interested in participating with a donation.
