PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
How quickly the summer is going. While many of us consider this as the holiday season, much
work continues at Terra Ceia. The pool continues to be a big project and hopefully will be
completed soon. The Clubhouse has received some minor roof repairs and the exterior has
gotten a fresh coat of paint. From all reports it looks really nice.  Rhonda is taking some
holidays starting in late July and continuing into August. Rosemary Donaldson will be filling in
at the office.  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS:  Make-it, Bake-it, Sew-it, Grow-it   Now is the time to be
thinking about what you would like to donate toward our annual Make-it, Bake-it, Sew-it, Grow-
it Auction.  It is exactly what the title indicates.  Anything you make would be a good item to
donate.  If you don’t consider yourself crafty, you can always donate a baked item. As is our
custom, we will hold the auction on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving (November 24).  The
proceeds will be used for park activities. Please note:  We will not accept store-bought items
that have been in your possession for a period of time.  These items should be donated to
the Rummage Sale in January.  For more information, please contact Joyce Everly at 941-723-

NEWS FROM RHONDA RITTER AT THE TCM OFFICE
Phone: 941-722-8249 / FAX 941-722-9095
e-mail: terraceia@verizon.net
Our Clubhouse has been painted, and it really looks nice and clean.  We are still dealing with
our pool; progress has been a little slow.  We want it done right, so we must wait.   We are
going to have our pavers sealed as soon as the pool is done. When you snowbirds get back,
things are going to look beautiful.  It has been tough on the year-round residents as we have
not had a pool, and it has been very hot here.  I will be on vacation soon and looking forward
to seeing my children.  Once again this Park has been a blessing to me. There are such
good people living here, and I have started to enjoy doing things with them like Taco
Tuesday. We have had good company and conversation.
SOLICITORS: Can take real advantage of you.  If someone comes to your door trying to sell
you a service, ask them to leave immediately. Promptly report the incident to the park
manager giving a description of the vehicle and the direction it leaves.

NEWSLETTER DEADLINE:  Two days before the end of the month.

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ (mrnormlk@gmail.com):
Other than the work on the pool and Clubhouse, our income and expenses are consistent
with previous summer months.  Our income variance to budget is less than 2%, and our
before ‘Betterments and Major Improvements’ expenses are less than 1% to budget.  Our
cash balance remains very good.  Work continues on the pool and Clubhouse, and I am
sure our friends who remain at TCM during the summer are hoping for a speedy completion
of the work.  As always, you may see a copy of the full financial reports from the TCM office.  
I encourage you to stop by and review them.
