A Walk in the Park—Fast Friends

By Marty Halverson

Look quick because these guys will soon be gone. Terry and Connie Brennan have had a short stay in Garden Park. They moved here last spring in a convoluted way from New York, Pennsylvania, Florida and Arizona to be near a daughter who lives just past the roundabout in Daybreak. You may have noticed their granddaughter practicing laps in our pool during the summer—Terry and Connie spent lots of time cheering for her at swim meets.

The convenience of the world famous Moran Eye Center, located just a half-mile from Garden Park, was another draw when they were considering a move to Utah. Surgery and various treatments have helped a little, but Terry’s eyes haven’t adjusted well to our dry climate. Since the Brennans love to play golf, they started looking for a new place back east where the air is moist, and the golf courses are green all year long. It didn’t take long to find one. Just a few weeks ago a For Sale sign appeared in front of their cute red house and within days they had an offer, and will be gone by the end of November! The buyers were strolling through Garden Park trying to decide on a lot to buy, but spotted the house of their dreams and thought “Why wait?” Out and in, hopefully before the snow flies.

We’ll miss the Brennans—they’ve been great neighbors! New neighbors are moving in regularly and it’s getting hard to keep track of who needs to be notified of potlucks, bookclubs and holiday soirees. If you know somebody who’s new to Garden Park, send me their email so they can be on the list: martyhalverson@gmail.com
