As they do every year, the road leading up to pavilion at Pleasant Lakes Estates in Warner was lined with homes decorated with inflatable snowmen, candy cane lawn ornaments and colorful lights. On the last Saturday in July, the residents of the housing community and campground gather and hold a pot luck and gift exchange. “We like to keep our community fun,” said Terry Wyman, who owns Pleasant Lake Estates with her husband. “Its important to us.” The highlight of the event is Santa’s arrival where many of the younger residents who are only around for the summer months get to sing, hang out and receive gifts.
