Sure it's a little early but Hey it only comes once a year. The annual Golf Cart Parade and house decorating contest is on its way. Hopefully Russ Coverdale will be gracious enough to coordinate the event again this year.
The community enjoys this event and it is a great excuse to have a driveway party, and for the cart participants a great way to get free liquor....and I am all about free!
Last year's participation was not what it had been in years past. Hoping this reminder will get some of you to think about maybe participating this year. Carts do not have to be fancy...do not have to have lights...just decorate that bad boy and join the parade fun...and remember the free liquor!
Final details are a way off but will communicate them once we get them. Please consider participating as we would like to have at least 25 carts this year. Remember Santa is watching!
The word Community as defined in Webster’s Dictionary: • Noun 1. Common possession or enjoyment, participation
The 2016 / 2017 social season is being planned now by some very hard working and committed folks. They do this because they believe in Community as defined above.
Below is a link to the major events for this season. Some really fine events sure to be a big hit with our Community, but we need your help...only 2 things really.
1. We need your participation...buy a ticket, come to the events, meet your fellow Community members share a drink, a dance, have a good time. Drink from the glass as life is short.
2. Volunteer to help. Each event needs a minimal 15 folks to assist. No experience necessary. The more Community members who sign up to help, the easier it becomes. We will once again use the states system to request your help and participation. Below is a link to the events with dates, entertainment, coordinators and their contact info. Reach out as part of a great Community and participate in some enjoyment.
You will be glad you did!
These are the forms we will use for our HOA Meetings during the Community Manager segment to address any community Issues that need to be addressed by Karen.
I hope this will help many who have questions and do not have a means to get them addressed.
I thank you for your support. Have an enjoyable summer.

Fertilizer restrictions take effect on June 1st. Be part of the solution....not the problem. Help keep our local ponds and streams clean and free of slime and aggressive aquatic weed growth.

The Snowbirds have migrated North, summer’s heat and humidity will be upon us soon. As the years go on hurricane Charley fades into our distant memory, the it will not happen again mentality sneaks into our mind. Many folks living here now did not experience Charley, and many more have never experienced a hurricane. Therein lies the danger.
The link below will take you to the Charlotte County Hurricane Preparedness document that has all the information regarding hurricanes, their forecasting, potential for damage and death, as well as how to prepare for an advancing storm, where to go, how to create an emergency supply kit and more.
Our slice of paradise is in the strike zone and evacuation is a task the area is not well prepared for. Charlotte County but more importantly Punta Gorda have very few safe shelters ( Punta Gorda only has 3 and none allow pets ) should the next storm hit so preparation is all the more critical.
Please follow the link read the entire pamphlet, print it out and use it to be and stay safe this hurricane season
