DON’T MAKE ME BEG
In the last issue, I mentioned that in January it will be time for the POA Annual meeting and elections. There are vacancies on the nine member POA Board of Governors so if you have some experience with associations, feel you can offer good input, you play well with others, and you are interested in serving on the Board of Governors, be sure to send a “letter of introduction” (i.e.: your name and contact info and a brief background with your related experience). I will pass the info on to the Nominating Committee.
The annual meeting will be Wednesday, January 20th at 6:00 p.m. in the PGA National Resort so mark your calendar and attend the meeting. This is the annual member’s meeting (or owners’ meeting) and a lot of information about PGA National is shared. Local officials also attend with information about the area and planned projects around PGA. Don’t worry, the meeting rarely lasts more than an hour so it is a great reason to go out and enjoy a nice meal after (or before!) the meeting.
ANY SLOWER AND WE WOULD BE STOPPED
Oh wait, we are stopped! For those who are wondering if the POA lost its mind and just wants to leave black paper on the outside of the Northlake guardhouse, the answer is no. We sincerely apologize for the delay but the plan was to install impact glass on the doors and windows. The stone contractor began his work but the window company closed up (no pun intended) so it caused some delays while a new company fabricated windows. By the time you read this the project should be moving along nicely. Again, we appreciate your patience.
LIGHT IT UP
No, not the cigarette – the holiday lights! For all who have been complaining about the holiday lighting (myself more than anyone, especially since people yell at me – really – about the design) I am happy to report that the plan has been changed considerably this year. Of course the Northlake entry will be under construction but we’ve managed to have the center median trees nicely lit. The other entries will have different lighting too and the Board heard you when you said the various displays (carolers, train, etc) were ‘dated’ but Santa and the Reindeer must continue to fly past the PGA logo on the hill. I don’t want to spoil it but I hope you’ll enjoy the new lighting plan. The lights go on around Thanksgiving….wow, where did the time go?
I can’t believe it is October! As I just said, what happened to the whole year? Seasonal residents will start returning soon and if you are into horror movies, you probably noticed that my heading is a line from a famous one. No, I am NOT calling our seasonal residents horrors! I’m referring to the frightening time of year. It is, after all, the month of Halloween and in addition to the heavier traffic with residents returning, we will have lots of Ghosties and Ghoulies doing the “Trick or Treat” thing. Every year we seem to have more families with children moving into PGA National. That’s a good thing but we all need to remember that it means more people on and along the roadways. The maximum speed in PGA is 35 mph and that is only in a few areas. Most streets have a 25 mph speed limit. The point to all this babbling is to nag you, again, to slow down inside the community and watch for pedestrians, joggers, bicyclists, children and wildlife!
Wishing all of you a safe and happy Halloween – BOO!
