PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
The Park is getting quiet now; for those who have or are yet to travel north, we hope you have
arrived safely and that your northern home has opened up with no unexpected surprises.
The new air conditioning system has been installed in the Clubhouse and should keep us
cooled off for many years to come.
Anyone wishing to make changes to the exterior of their Terra Ceia home are reminded to fill
out the required request form available at the office.
To our full-time residents, I hope you enjoy the new Bocce ball court this summer!
We will have a new office manager for the summer while Rhonda is away. While we don't know
who it will be yet, the hours will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday 0800 to noon.
Wishing everyone a great summer!
NEWS FROM THE REC. BOARD
Next Meeting:  Monday, April 9, 9 a.m.
Meetings are open to
all residents.
At the April 9th Rec. Board meeting, the Board voted to set aside $5,000 toward a future
storage unit to house bazaar items.  The Board also voted to allow Theresa Chase to list large
items (couches, chairs, etc.) on Craig's List to maximize space in the laundry room.

The Board also voted to order 100 more recipe books to be ordered in September.  The
books sell for $15 each.  If interested in ordering 1 or more books (they make great Christmas
presents), please send your check to:  Lola Berry, Treasurer, 5619 Bayshore Road, Lot 319,
Palmetto, Florida 34221.  Profits from the books will accrue to the TCM Rec. Assn. treasury.

The next Board meeting will be held on November 9, 2018.  To everyone up north and in the
park, have a healthy and pleasant summer!  Judi Renkenberger, President

LOVE & PRAYERS
Please remember the following residents in your prayers:  Joyce Frank, Unit 433; Rose
Dander, Unit 145;
KEN DONALDSON, UNIT 133 – after a multitude of tests, Ken has been diagnosed with stage
4 lung cancer.  The back pain is caused by a tumor on his spine, pressing on the sciatic
nerve.  He is in the midst of radiation treatments.  The treatments have shrunk the back tumor
enough to give him some relief from the back pain.  He will continue with chemo after the
radiation is complete.  Our prayers are with you, Ken!
