Sun Meadow Resort Community Gathers to Celebrate Easter

 by Margie Cantlon
 
The 15th annual Easter celebration at Sun Meadow resort was a joyful gathering of the Sun Meadow community, led by Margie Cantlon and Terri Capshaw.  Those gathered shared songs and inspirational messages, accompanied by AANR-NW President Dave Smith on guitar and autoharp, and Kathy Smith, AANR Member Trustee for the Northwest Region, on piano.
 
Messages of grace resonated, and it was especially poignant for the nudist community.  Grace means letting go of what doesn’t matter and focusing on what does, and when nudists shed their clothes, status falls away, and the community gets down to what is important: how we serve one another and make each other’s lives more meaningful.   It takes grace for different people to live together, and the nudist community is a place where all people can find acceptance.
 
Guests visiting Sun Meadow resort for the first time often remark that what stands out for them is the sense of community they feel.  This is what most people at nudist communities experience.  It takes community to make it work.  Political leaning, sexual preference, religious affiliation, profession, etc. become immaterial in the nudist environment. 
 
Kathy Smith tells of her first nudist experience at Kaniksu Ranch, where she had a tour, and then took off her clothes.  The breeze on her skin and the friendly people at the pool made her feel so comfortable and welcome that she has been an active member of the nudist community ever since that day.  This is not an unusual experience.
 
The bottom line is that nudists are nice people, and it takes nice people to build a meaningful community.
