Homeowners Association Elections
Ideal Beach Resort would like to congratulate Roger Sears and John Cushing on their reelection to the Homeowners Association Board. We had a pool of highly qualified candidates and we appreciate all those who put their names forward for consideration. We could not run the Resort without the significant contribution of our various boards. Thank you for your service!
