When Lori nominated her husband, Dan, to receive some #LMOKindness, I knew I wanted to be a part of this story. Dan had been an employee at IBM for over 20 years and was recently laid off. This transition, of course, had some repercussions for their single-income family, and Dan was in definite need of some Spirit-lifting! In speaking with Lori on the phone to get a better feeling for what Dan might need, I picked up on the idea that the whole family (Lori, Dan and their son) could use a change in scenery and some fun in an outdoor setting! Lori’s voice was full of hope for her husband, her son and herself; I am sure this will be the beginning of a new phase that brings them much prosperity and happiness!

To send them off on their new journey, our Kind Sponsor – Springs RV Resort, is hosting this family of 3 in one of their luxury RVs to enjoy all the amenities of their gated community resort. I had the pleasure of staying there last Summer with my husband and kids and we had the BEST time – so my heart is happy that Lori and her family will have a great weekend getaway!

Springs RV Resort is the perfect lake escape only 90 minutes from anywhere in the Fraser Valley. The Resort is in the charming village of Harrison Hot Springs and just a leisurely stroll from the lake and beach. Designed for family fun and boasting a unique community with weekly summer activities, Springs RV has two outdoor swimming pools, brand new Whistler-style amenities, indoor clubhouse, outdoor games area, children’s play area and more.

Since I last visited, there have been many add-ons that I am sure Lori, Dan and their son will make good use of:

  • Brand new 3 story clubhouse
  • New adult pool and over-sized hot tub
  • Large heated family pool with hot tub
  • Spa-like bathrooms with heated tiles
  • 5 outdoor community fireplaces
  • Two bigscreen TV areas
  • Library with fireplace
  • Stone and cedar social pavillion for dinners and dances
  • Laundry room
  • Large treed playground
  • 1930s carousel
  • Walking trails, dog walk
  • Free WiFi and Shaw HotSpots
