our annual meeting and elected three new board members!  They are Paul Gillette, Bill
Drayton, and Tom McCoy.
We also had three board members leave the board.  I would like to thank Doug Geen, Bob
Everly and Tom Hanket for their many years of service to our great park.

ALBERTA RHODE FORMERLY OF UNIT 102 - We extend our condolences to the family and
friends of Alberta who passed away in February.
JOE TIMMS, UNIT 111 – went to the ER on March 22 with A-fib.  After six hours, he was
allowed to return home.
MARLENE WRIGHT AND SHERRY LA VIGNE, UNIT 124 – were both diagnosed with acute
bronchitis on March 20 and sent to the hospital for testing.  The coronavirus tests results
were negative for both of them.  After a follow-up appointment on March 27, both were sent to
the hospital again.  Marlene was put on an IV and had further testing.  She was sent home the
same day.  Sherry was found to have fluid on her lung and difficulty breathing.  She was kept
overnight for further treatment.  She returned home on March 28 and both are recuperating
at home.
BIRD DIERKENS, UNIT 128 – lost his long battle with cancer on February 28.  A funeral mass
and reception, which were planned for March 17, had to be postponed due to the pandemic.  
Watch this space for future arrangements.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy on the loss of
your husband and our friend, Karen.
JOHN DANDER, UNIT 145 – went to the hospital by ambulance on March 16.  Since Rose
was suffering from a cold, she was sent home and told to stay in for 5 days.  John was
diagnosed with congestive heart failure, A-fib and a virus, but subsequent tests for the
coronavirus were negative.  He received a heart catheterization and his heart was shocked
back into rhythm.  He is hoping to return home soon.
PAT GRIFFIS, UNIT 160 – retuned home following shoulder replacement on March 1.  She is
currently doing physical therapy.
IAN FROST, FORMERLY OF UNIT 216 – We extend our condolences to the family and
friends of Ian who passed away in England.
BRUCE MARTIN, UNIT 242 – was scheduled for an aortic valve replacement on March 24,
but it was postponed because the hospital is doing only non-elective surgery at this time.  He
is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week.
GLORIA SCHWEINSBERG, UNIT 312 – We extend our heart-felt sympathy to Gloria and to
Gerald Houppert on the passing of Charles on March 9.
NANCY DIXON, UNIT 310 – is continuing the restrictions of no weight bearing in the healing
process for her hip, because all of her appointments have been canceled
SHIRLEY MORLEY, UNIT 439 – went to the hospital on March 18 with apparent congestive
heart failure.  Subsequent testing indicated she had suffered a heart attack.  She underwent
surgery on March 24 and received 4 stents.  Unfortunately, Shirley passed away early on the
morning of March 29.  We extend our sincere sympathy to her family and her many friends
here in the park.

TREASURER’S REPORT – TOM MCCOY: The new BOD has their list of duties, and we are
getting a lay of the land and planning how to accomplish our jobs.  We, like the rest of the
snowbirds in Florida, are trying to figure out how and when we are going to head north
safely.  As usual the monthly financial reports will be available in the office.  
Thank you for your confidence in me. I will do the best job I can.
