FEBRUARY LETTER FROM YOUR HOA PRESIDENT
Welcome to winter.
The first week of January was great, and then the cold came. As of this writing it’s 45 to 50 in the morning and will maybe get up to 70 in the afternoon. It had to come sooner or later.
January and February are the busiest months of the season with many activities going on from golf to tennis to shuffleboard. So keep busy or just lay back and thank God that there is no snow.
February is elections for the BOD. The date for the elections is February 23rd from 8:00 to 5:00 in the lounge. There are three positions open on the Board and four candidates. So get out and vote. The results of the election will be announced at the Homeowners Meeting that night at 7:00.
As of this writing the new roof on the clubhouse is almost finished, but they have not started on the Sand Trap.
Speaking of the Sand Trap, give it a try. Sue cooks up a great breakfast and lunch. And don’t forget about Friday night dinners and karaoke.
Speeding is still an issue. Slow down and save a life. There are a lot of walkers, bikers and golf carts moving all at the same time, so be patient and we’ll all get home alive.
BJ’S membership cards are available to HOA Members. Please call Carl at 543-6638. The cost of membership is $25 per year.
As always, if you have an issue, call a Board Member (they are listed in the clubhouse) and voice your concerns.
Thank you for being a member of the HOA.
Carl Gregg President
Mimi Butler 1st Vice President
George McHenry 2nd Vice President
