Hugh Bailey Memorial Trail in Five Oaks
Hugh & Kay Bailey were long time residents of the Five Oaks Community. Hugh passed away in early 2014, and this devoted couple would have celebrated their 61st Wedding Anniversary on June 27, 2014. Hugh Bailey will always be remembered as a most delightful gentlemen. Hugh could often be seen taking walks through the woods and the neighborhood, , stopping to visit neighbors with a flower or two in hand. He was a daily visitor to the Pool – and an avid swimmer, and he never missed a Saturday Lunch Bunch ~~~ quite often found in the restaurant’s kitchen speaking with the Chef, and on one occasion in the restaurant next door talking to the staff. He never missed a Five Oaks event, including the gathering of the Triple S Club (sit, seal n’stamp) – a volunteer committee to help with the many mailings out of the Clubhouse Office.
What better way to honor a terrific guy, but to create The Hugh Bailey Memorial Trail. With the generosity of his many friends and neighbors, this is a trail behind the Clubhouse, with a lovely resting rustic bench midway, tucked in the woods to the right of our Tennis Courts, and connects with the Glenview Community (on Farrington Rd) for easy access for our Glenview/Farrington Rd Social members to the Five Oaks facilities.
You will always be remembered dear friend and neighbor~~ and certainly missed by all.
