Homeowners Appreciation Fund

A Bear Lake Owner founded the "Owners Appreciation Holiday Fund," We now celebrate our 5th year. We are excited to continue promoting and supporting this special gift to our staff.

Staffing can be a challenge in this region, and our team does the best they can to go above and beyond throughout the year to service our homeowners.

The appreciation fund is a donation by B.L.R. Owners split between full-time, part-time, and seasonal staff who worked in 2021 and are scheduled to return in 2022.

The Owners Appreciation Holiday Fund Bonuses will be given to the staff on Saturday, December 18th, during the Owners / Staff Christmas Party at the Lake Club. In addition, all Owners are invited to our Annual White Elephant Potluck Party. Look for more details coming soon.

We know this Holiday Bonus is very impactful for our team and helps create the culture of retaining strong team members year after year. This is entirely voluntary on your part if you wish to offer a memorable "Holiday Thank You" to the team. Any amount is acceptable and appreciated.
