PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
As I see the leaves on the trees changing color, it is a reminder for many that it is time to start
thinking about heading south and reconnecting with our friends in Terra Ceia. This month
should see a further influx of northern residents, and the park will start to get busier. It sounds
like our full-time people have had a busy and enjoyable summer season.
We now have a beautifully refurbished pool, and I am sorry to hear that Pat Smith will no
longer be helping to maintain it. I hope we all appreciate how much Pat has done and thank
her if we have the opportunity. Anyone willing to take this duty on would be most appreciated.
If so either Pat or Rhonda could explain the duties. In the meantime the Board will be paying
our Clubhouse cleaning contractor to also look after the pool.
The Board will not be meeting in October but will have the first meeting in November.
Look forward to seeing 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 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-
9712 or Calla Gonzalez at 765-490-0892.

continues "Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden light."
THANK YOU - Thank you to everyone who helped with the planning, organizing, and
participation in our summer activities.  It was a very busy summer, playing bocce ball,
shuffleboard, cards, coffee hour, going out for breakfast and dinners, having dinners for
each holiday and a special dinner for celebrating all the summer birthdays and anniversaries,
and our beach days. It was a fun-filled summer.   Gayle Fleury and Joyce Everly.
BOCCE BALL CALL OUT - Margie Hochstetler will be putting up a sign-up sheet for Bocce
Ball. She is planning a fall and winter league, October and January.  Once teams are
created, days and times will be set up for playing.

TREASURER-AT-LARGE  REPORT – NORM KURTZ (mrnormlk@gmail.com):
Our HOA Board and Rhonda have done a great job keeping this summer rather uneventful
(financially speaking).  Our finances are still consistent with the budget.  Other than the pool
renovation and clubhouse painting, our expenses are consistent with prior years, and we
continue to maintain a good cash position.  
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.
