PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
Hi everyone. I hope many of us are getting excited about the thought of heading to Terra Ceia
for another winter season. Fall seems to be in the air now.
Your Board members have kept busy with a variety of items that go into running a park even in
the off season. We say goodbye to Susan Bradshaw with a big thank you for the job she has
done for us this summer. We welcome Rhonda back this month. I would like to ask for
everyone’s help in assisting our lawn maintenance crew. They occasionally are running over
(and damaging) hoses or air conditioning wiring that is lying on the ground. It can be hard for
them to see. If we could insure that these things are picked up or more easily identified it
would be most appreciated.
There will be no workshop or regular Board meeting in October but I look forward to picking it
up in November.
Safe travels to all those travelling south.  Hope to see you soon.

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 18).  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 941-723-9712 or Calla
Gonzalez at 765-490-0892.

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ:
There really has been little change in our finances this summer.  Our cash position is good
and we are favorable to the budget.  There have been no major improvement expenses
during the summer.
I am looking forward to this fall season and hope everyone has a great Halloween.  See you
all this winter.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like more detail on the financial
condition of your association.
