Barbara Lyghtle, Cameron Park “I spent most of my life in Modesto and came here a couple years ago to be near my family in Rescue. I have a beautiful golf course view and a whole new circle of friends from Snowline Hospice, where I volunteer. The people here are so friendly.”

People Talk – What makes Cameron Park a special place to live? Part 2

By March 30, 2011

Editor’s note: You might have noticed that last month’s People Talk question and answers published in the paper were out of sync. This is the question we meant to print and some fresh answers.

Barbara Lyghtle, Cameron Park “€œI spent most of my life in Modesto and came here a couple years ago to be near my family in Rescue. I have a beautiful golf course view and a whole new circle of friends from Snowline Hospice, where I volunteer. The people here are so friendly.”€

Blake Bronson, Cameron Park “€œMy brother lived here. I bought in ’99; the guy told me it was above the smog and below the snow. Good deal. I came from Fremont. The quality of life here is far better … far less traffic and crime. I love it here.”€

John Heally, Cameron Park “€œMy great-grandfather was born right here. He was a 49er. My grandfather owned Cronin Ranch. So my whole family has always been here and we love it. I used to play tennis with Ruth Cameron. What a sweet lady. That lady was ready for anything.”

Ron Short, Cameron Park “€œI came to the county to join Serrano Country Club, but couldn’€™t get in right away. I checked out Cameron Park’€™s golf course and country club and loved what I saw. I moved here from El Dorado Hills in 2006. It’€™s a friendly community, not real rush rush. People know you at the grocery store here.”

Ted Wakefield, Cameron Park “€œIt’€™s quiet here. Also, I love watching the planes take off and land. The scenery here is almost European. And there’€™s enough commercial here to make it convenient.”€
