The first month of 2017 has come and gone, and with it – our warm temperatures. However, it shouldn’t be too long before the weather begins to warm up again. Likewise, as we continue into the first quarter of 2017, the Association is warming-up to three (3) items of interest that need to be publicized.
1. 2018 assessments.
One might not suspect that the subject of 2018 assessments would surface so quickly. Nevertheless, for some, this is an inviting time to make monthly payments towards those assessments. (The assessments are due no later than Dec. 31 of each year, and unfortunately, the Association cannot accept partial payments, payment plans, reductions, waivers, etc., after the fact.) Should you be interested in making payments towards your 2018 assessments, please contact Rae Lathum at email@example.com or 850-939-1693 x4.
2. Recreation center remodeling.
The BOD has begun to consider the option(s) of updating and modernizing the recreation center. An initial concept has been developed to review what updates are required by code and what remodeling would best facilitate movement into and out of the building, as well as best space utilization. Besides any required code updates, the focus will be on an entrance relocation. The concept would see an addition to the building adjacent to the screen room and exterior restroom entrances; in addition to a portico. These two items would establish a closer entry point, out of inclement weather, and would provide a smoother surface on which to travel. Those interested in the progress should monitor the agendas of future BOD meetings.
3. BOD election.
Now that the national election period is over; we need to turn our focus to the one right here in our own backyard. As some of you may know, this July we’ll see three new members to the Board of Directors being elected. As such, the Association is seeking candidates who display the characteristics of optimistic leaders, realistic managers and enthusiastic team players with reputations of selfless service.
The minimum qualifications to be considered:

Looking for three great volunteers!
