Fullshare & Timeshare Owner
Hunts Point, WA
2021 – 2024
I joined Leisure Care and Lytle Enterprises in 1981. Our business is privately held and family owned, serving over 3,000 seniors and 20 retirement communities in 8 states.
As a company, we have received many awards for operational excellence and significant resident and family satisfaction. This has been accomplished through dedication, attention to detail and listening to our customers’ needs.
I was COO of Leisure Care until 2003 and am currently Chairman of Lytle Enterprises. My business experience and philanthropic work have given me the leadership skills to be a strong and involved board member for PWR.
We have 6 married children and 13 grandchildren, who all enjoy their visits to Lake Chelan. I am passionate about keeping Peterson’s a wonderful family place to enjoy for many years to come.
I appreciate the confidence the owners have in electing me to the board and I am thoroughly enjoying being so involved with all of the aspects of operating a timeshare and full share resort.
Hi, I am David Blacker. I was born in the Boston area and along with my twin sister, Marci, grew up enjoying skiing, golf, and lacrosse. I met my wife, Kelly Begley, in New York in 1998 and we were married in 2001. We have two boys aged 16 and 13. Kelly grew up in Washington, and Lake Chelan was a staple in her family’s summer vacations. Lake Chelan has become a favorite location for our family since our boys were very little and when the opportunity to purchase unit 315 came in 2016, we couldn’t pass it up. We use the condo year-round, skiing in the winter and spending time on the lake in the summer. We moved back to the NW in 2020, settled in Bellevue and have enjoyed spending even more time at the Lake with family. It has been an honor to be on the board this last year and I look forward to continuing in my role. A few of my experiences for being on the board include the following: I owned and managed a 12-unit apartment complex while living in Ohio (2004-2007) and continued the oversight of this property in Ohio when we relocated to Tennessee until the properties sold in 2010. I started and was the president of an HOA when we lived in Tennessee (2007-2011). During the past year I have been on the board and am very proud of the work that has been done. We have been able to improve the internet service, increase parking and have made other changes to make staying at Petersons easier such as the new wrist bands with key cards. It has been a pleasure being on the board and I look forward to continuing to keep Petersons moving forward.

I have lived in Washington since 1974. I have livered here since my enlistment in the US Army ended. I worked as a cost accountant for Morse Hardware in Bellingham before joining the Air National Guard. The Air National Guard trained me as an active duty Air Force Recruiter. My office was in Bellingham Washington. I served in those positions for 8 years. I have owned several small businesses. I worked for Sears for 12 years in varied management positions before being self-employed for 19 years. I have worked as a Manager for a large retail store chain for the last 5 years.
I believe that PWOA is at a crossroads. It is a beautiful family friendly environment in a wonderful area of the Pacific Northwest. Maintaining it while meeting the needs of the timeshare/full share owners is critical. I strongly believe in maintenance however I also believe in budgeting and communication. I want to see those areas improve and rather than just hope it will happen, I want to help it happen.
I feel I would bring a budget conscience presence to the Board. I have worked in and with organizations and budgets my entire working life. I have always worked with multiple personalities and know the value of a team approach to solving problems. I have a vested interest in seeing Peterson’s maintain its value as I have been a time share owner of multiple weeks for many years.
2021 – 2024
My name is Paul Goldsberry and I’ve been a timeshare owner at Peterson’s for over 30 years. Both my wife and I grew up in Black Diamond, WA, graduated from Enumclaw High School, and currently live in Buckley, WA. I’m 73 years old, have been married to my wonderful wife for nearly 50 years (March 2020). We have 3 grown sons, Scott, Michael & Kevin. All three happily married to great daughter-in-laws. The boys and their families now visit us at our Week 30, Unit 112 with three grandchildren to continue building fond family memories.
I had a 32 year management career with what is now CenturyLink telephone company (originally Pacific Northwest Bell, then U S West, then Qwest) in various engineering jobs. I took early retirement in 2000 and then worked about 8 years as business office support for a family friend’s general construction company. I now spend my time golfing, hunting, fishing, reading, and volunteering at the Buckley Food Bank.
I’m pleased to be a member of the board of directors and will make every effort to represent the membership in good faith as part of the governing body of Peterson’s Waterfront Resort.
