These were interesting years.
Subsequent years have been
even more interesting.
In early 2010, Manitoba's oldest landed naturist club lost its home of
40 years when the campground's owners decided to take it textile. With
pure determination and sheer will, our small membership immediately began
the task of purchasing new land of our own and building what is now known
as Naturist Legacy Park.... So how did we go from absolutely nothing to
something quite amazing in just two short years? Countless hours of "outside
the box" thinking and planning produced a solid business plan for a naturist
park that inspired enough confidence in our members to both fund it and
build it. We owe money only to ourselves, with not one thin dime owed to
any external bank or lender.... Naturist Legacy's business structure is
somewhat unique. It's not a "mom and pop" club, a co-op or a commercial,
for-profit corporation. We are instead a membership-based non-profit (non-share)
corporation. No one "owns" Naturist Legacy. It's governed and managed by
a board of directors (elected by the membership), who are in turn governed
by the corporation's by-laws.... Our corporation's mission is to provide
continuity and stability and endurance for landed naturism in Manitoba.
That mission is both our present and our future.
