RESORT UPDATE

Williston Crossings is many things to many people.  It is often described as quiet as depicted in this recent photo of the grist mill pond.  But, behind the scenes there is a lot of activity.  A dedicated group of volunteers generously give their time and talents to maintain and improve the beauty and functionality of the resort.   We want to thank everyone who volunteered last season and throughout this summer. 

Following are a few of the more recent projects:

  • Installation of street signs, stop signs and one way signs
  • Installation of a pergola at the Activity Center garden entrance  
  • New privacy fence adjacent to the Maintenance Building
  • Grist Mill improvements with new counters, refinished picnic tables, benches and bars
  • Additional lockers in the Sewing Room
  • Installation of a 40’ POD storage container behind the Club House to consolidate and store activity decorations
  • When Hurricane Hermine came through everyone stepped up and helped clean up the debris. Thankfully the damage was minimal.

Many projects are planned for the 2016-17 season including the continued renovation of the railroad cars and the caboose.  Over the summer, the railroad cars were given a fresh look with paint in FEC Blue, Chattanooga Choo Choo Burnt Maroon and Chattanooga Choo Choo Green.  The transformation of the caboose is nearly finished.  Early this fall we will celebrate the opening of the caboose as a coffee, pastry and ice cream shop!  The menu is being developed, so expect to be pleasantly surprised!
