    Author: Elaine, Published: Mar 16, 2019

    What a terrific party!   There were between 80 and 90 people there.  Special thanks to Rich and Judy Volden for putting it altogether.  Thanks to all the captains of the teams for keeping track of everything throughout the season.

     

    The weather was perfect - a bit overcast which was great.

     

    The winners of the day were:

    Bob and Maureen Manning for bocce

    MaryBeth and Paul Haywood for shuffleboard-- their second year in a row.

    Amie and Dale McDonald won the triathlon; Judy Volden and Bobby Jones came in second.

     

    Everyone pitched in to help clean up after it was over - thanks so much.

  • Social Committee is now the Social Club!

    Social Club Minutes - Wednesday, March 6, 2019

     Those present:  Leonoa Hoenes, Lorraine Pepper, Linda Rutland & Jerry Lemon, Don & June Dougall, Erma & Dick Suriana, Sherry Thomson, Anita & John McNamara, Marge & Viincent Provenzano, Mary & Len Sharpe, Lynda Murphy, Maureen Manning, Elaine & Mike Mosher, Donna & Leon McCrary, Shirley & Jim Fitzgerald, MaryBeth & Paul Haywood, Donna Brunet, Laura & John Durland, Sheila & Jim Meier, Linda & Gary Raiti, Judy Holthouse, Marge Rimer, Marilyn Dolce, Joan & Tom Decker, Anne & Bill Siudy, Rich & Judy Volden, Ed Connaghan, Barb Sappie, Lynn Flint, Dona Haydon, and Elaine McKissick

     Day Trips

    Mike Mosher presented the idea to the group about taking some day bus trips.  He said to think about some bus day trips over the summer and send any ideas to Elaine McKissick and then he will research them.  Some places he suggested were Winter Park, Al Capone's restaurant, etc.  He will try to keep the cost under $100.  When asked how many would be interested in trips like this, there were a lot of people who raised their hands. 

     Lynn Flint

    Lynn explained that the Florida state law requires committee members to be owners so to get around this, the name of the social committee will be changed to the social club.  Instead of being co-chairs, there must be a president, vice president, secretary,, treasurer and liaison to the board.  Dona Haydon will be president; Barb Sappie will be vice president and liaison; Elaine McKissick will be secretary; and Lynn will be treasurer and liasion to the board.

     She explained the regulations of the new charter.  The social club is not allowed to alter the property in any way without the approval of the board. The club cannot donate or buy anything without the approval of the board.

     Lynn distributed forms to be used as a guideline if you are in charge of a party as far as keeping track of how many people attend the party, your expenses, etc.  All receipts must be turned into Lynn when you complete the forms.

     We discussed getting a sign for the recreation area.   Rich Volden does not want his name on anything but would like to have a sign.  After some discussion of the stipulations regarding the sign, Leonora Hoenes said she is very happy and thankful to Rich that we have the area but doesn't think a sign is necessary.   A vote was taken and we decided not to get a sign.

     It is still uncertain who is going to be maintaining the area.  If maintenance is needed or new equipment is needed, a proposal has to be presented to the board.  Then, they will decide if they will pay for it or if the social club will pay for it.  They do have money in reserve for maintenance but at this point, it is unclear of what that involves.

     Treasurer's Report

    We have $2,758.08 in our account.

     SPECIAL THANK YOUS 

    Once again, Sandra Burke and her committee were recognized for the great job they do with the landscaping.

    Marge Provenzano was thanked for all her time and effort doing all the pictures.  She never turns in any receipts and was encouraged to do so. After the meeting, please pick up any pictures.

    Special thanks to the February party committee for a great western party.

    Big thanks to JoAnn Guy for the successful condo tour.

    There was a big round of applause for all.

    Bill Siudy said there were about 20 guys at the last gathering.  There will be a signup sheet on the bulletin board for the Wednesday, March 20 ROMEO. 

    LADIES’ LUNCHEON

    Leonora Hoenes said the next luncheon will be Wednesday, March 27 at noon.  She is planning on having a speaker who arranges bus trips in Brevard County.  There will be a signup sheet on the bulletin board.

     BOOK CLUB 

    Linda Rultand said she met with Sandra Burke regarding the club.   Since not enough people have been participating, they are suggesting that we go to the book club at the Cape Canaveral library which meets the last Friday of every month all year long. 

     Pearl Bensinger 

    Lorraine Pepper had been trying to contact Pearl and finally got in touch with her son.   Pearl passed away in September.   Lorraine has a sympathy card to sign to give to the family for those who knew Pearl

    EPCOT Flower Show 

    Leonora Hoenes said the trip is planned for Tuesday, March 12.   Call her for details.

     February Crossover 

    John McNamara said there were at least 70 people there.  Lots of good food and he wanted to thank everyone in the B buiding who contributed.

    March Crossover 

    MaryBeth Haywood said she will organize the crossover for Friday, March 22.   Anyone from the C building who would like to bring something, call MaryBeth.

     Since we don’t have the crossovers on the crossover anymore, we talked about a different name for the gatherings.  After a brief discussion, it was decided if you are in charge you can call it anything you want.

    February Party Report 

    Donna McCrary said there 59 people at the party.  She thanked their committee for all their help.  The committee members were:  Donna & Leon McCrary, Dick & Leonora Hoenes, Carolyn Baron and Chuck Noonan, June & Don Dougall, and Sherry & Mike Thomson.  She encouraged people to host a party emphasizing that if you get a committee together,everyone is good at doing something they like to do.  If everyone does their part, it is much easier on the hosts.   They turned in $180.24 to the social club.

     Horse Racing Party 

    Next year we will discuss having a party and explain more about it.  JoAnn Guy and Anne Siudy have slips for the betting already made up.

     Golf Tournament 

    Lynda Murphy said that the deadline to sign up is today.  Tomorrow the information will be given to the teams.   There will be at least 8 teams.  After the tournament the group goes to the Sunset Restaurant for the awards.  You do not have to be in the tournament to go to the restaurant but if you want to bet, you have to go to the restaurant.

     Maintenance Staff 

    Last year we gave the maintenance staff $50 each for all their help during the year.   Leon McCrary made a motion to give the money again this year; MaryBeth Haywood seconded the motion.   All agreed.

     Non-perishables

    There will be a container in the office if you want to give non-perishable to Jose’ to take to his church.  If you have large items, he will arrange to pick them up.
