Arts Festival & Crafts Fair
Did you come out on December 13th or were you one of the wimps who stayed home because you thought it might rain? If so, you missed it!!!!! It did not rain and it was a beautiful day, despite the wind. The artists and crafters had great prices and beautiful items. If you were able to join us, I hope you had a wonderful time and found some great bargains! A special thank you to Girl Scout Troop 651 – they worked hard helping to direct participants, and clean up after the event. Another special thank you to the PGA POA Special Events Committee who made it all possible! Some photos are included in this issue and if you couldn’t make it this year, we hope to see you next December.
The next ‘big’ POA event is the annual Children’s Party in the Park on April 25th. The post card reminders will be sent in a couple months. When you receive it, don’t forget to stop by the POA office to RSVP and pay for your food ticket ($1.00 each).
The PGA POA Annual meeting is being held Monday, January 19 at 6:30 at the PGA Resort.
The meeting notice and ballot has been mailed and while we would like to receive the ballot as quickly as possible, it doesn’t mean you should just send in the ballot and not come to the
meeting. The Board of Governors invite various public officials to speak at the meeting and last year there were fewer than 100 of the five THOUSAND homes represented….in short, it was embarrassing to both the board, the speaker and the community at large. The meeting is a good source of information in the local community of PGA, the City and the County so please show your elected officials that you are interested and come to the meeting. It rarely lasts more than an hour and it is only once per year that we ask for your participation and we thank you inadvance for same.
Many of you may recall the “gypsy burglars” several years ago and I regret to tell you that we are again experiencing some “break ins”. Typically theft within PGA National is limited to items being taken from unlocked cars; however, recently we have had a couple incidences of actual break ins. It is important that all residents lock their doors and set their alarms and please: be observant and it you see anything or anyone suspicious please call Wackenhut Security or the Palm Beach Gardens Police. There is more information about crime and how to protect yourself in Tom Hartog’s report in this issue.
I Will Keep Doggin You!!!!
I would first like to thank the numerous residents I see walking with bags in evidence and
actually cleaning up after their pets. Unfortunately, there are quite a few pet owners who just don’t seem to care and make no effort to clean up their pet’s waste. Since your dog doesn’t have opposable thumbs and can’t open his or her own bag, we must rely on you. The
landscapers work darn hard to keep the community looking nice and isn’t it just pleasant to step in something smelly while cutting grass? School is in and kids are waiting for their bus so they have a seat…..eeewwww! I don’t need to explain that one. The bottom line (no pun intended) is be considerate of others and care enough about your community, your neighbors and your pet to clean up after them! I thank you from the bottom of my feet…..uh, heart!
