ART & ARTISAN SHOW THANK YOU
The Art & Artisan show that took place on March 4th was a huge success. We hope that everyone that attended, enjoyed themselves. Next year’s show will be scheduled for Sunday March 3rd, 2019. ——- Karen Williams.
On March 15th we had 21 Ancient Oakers give the gift of life, potentially saving 63 lives!! Way to go! The bloodmobile will not be in the park until next January. Please remember to give at every chance you have. OneBlood needs 2,500 units of blood EACH day to meet the demand of the hospitals in our area. That’s over whelming. Thank you.
Approximately 40 ladies enjoyed lunch at Red Lobster in front of Treasure Coast Mall. We had a good meal and service. On Wednesday, April 18 we are going to try another restaurant, Prawnbroker Grill, between the bridges on Sewall’s Point in Stuart. ———Jol.
Once again, we are thankful for a successful Carport Sale held in March, so pat yourselves on the back, we raised $850. Thanks to all who helped and donated. Faith Farm was thrilled to get what we had left over and said to pass on their thanks.
Voting for Pickleball is still open and will be for another 60 days. We are very close. Please ask all your family and friends here in the park if they have returned their ballots. Thanks to all who helped and those who continue to help.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. If for some reason you think you have spoiled your ballot by not including your address or signature, please call and we may be able to help. All ballots sheets need a signature and Block\Lot # as well as your vote. (letter was a little confusing) that vote sheet needs to put in the ballot envelope, sealed and then put in the address envelope which must have your name and address (B&L) then mail or turn into the office. Thinking very Positive, Irene Bilger & the Pickleball Comm.
The Social Activity Committee would like to THANK all the people who have participated in our activities this year and a great big THANK YOU to all the volunteers without whom, many of the activities would not happen. A special THANKS to Phyllis and Carolyn for selling tickets every Tuesday and Thursday. Safe travels to all and we hope to see you all next season. May your summer be filled with good thoughts, kind people, and happy moments Love to all —————Marlene Kreiger——S.A.C. President. & the entire S.A.C. board.
