Note from Vikki:
April is here and many of our winter residents will be preparing for the trip north. Please remember to let us know when you leave. When closing up your home for the summer make sure your windows and doors are locked and all items on your patio are secured either inside a shed or the home. If you are going to leave a car on site, also make sure that it is locked. This helps us when hurricane season arrives and also to keep your belongings safer.
If your home will be for sale while you are gone, please let us know who is responsible for the home and who will have a key to the home in case of emergency.
With the warm weather arriving the grass and weeds will start to grow at a quick rate, please remember that you are responsible to keep your home weeded and trimmed while you are away. Make arrangements for this to be done no less than every 2 weeks to keep your home neat and deter insects, snakes and rodents from moving in while you are gone.
When watering your lawns, please remember to not use the city water. Each home has a faucet behind your home that is reclaimed water to use to water your lawns.
Because of issues with the cooling system, the clubhouse thermostats are now locked. They are set at 75 degrees and will remain there until the summer months when we will turn them down to 72 degrees. When using the clubhouse please plan for this temperature and if you get cold, bring a sweater or jacket with you.
Special THANKS to all the volunteer security people that have helped this year with our nightly patrols. Your presence helps our community be safer and definitely deters crime.
We plan on continuing the patrols over the summer and will need volunteers for those months too.
We will be doing some improvements to the pool area, clubhouse and the shuffleboard courts over the summer. The driveway/sidewalk repairs & stump grinding will also be done during these months.
When paying your rent, please date your check for no earlier than the 1st of the month that you paying. This will help us post the payment to the correct month and keep our accountant happy. As in the past you can leave us post-dated checks for each month while you are away, just please remember to date them for the 1st of each month.
I want to take a moment and thank all the residents for making my first 6 months as property manager wonderful. You all have helped to make me feel welcome and have taken any changes in stride and supported me with them. I look forward to continuing to make Lakeview Estates a great place to call home. If over the summer you have any questions, concerns or just want to say hello, please feel free to give me a call.
Also, remember our newsletter is published monthly online at www.lakeviewestatesfl.tripod.com so you can keep up to date on what is happening here while you are gone.
Have a wonderful summer and looking forward to seeing you all in the fall. Vikki
Note from Melissa:
April is a beautiful time of year, we start to see the hints of spring in the air, and a glimpse of what summer will be like. Makes us start to think of how we can improve our lives, our homes and our lawns! So get outside, plant some flowers, pull some weeds, it’s all good for the soul!
FUN FACTS ABOUT APRIL
- April is named for the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. It also may come from the Latin word 'aperire' which means 'to open,' typically what flowering plants do at this time of the year.
- No one knows for certain how April got its name, but it may have come from the Latin word 'aperire' which means 'to open'. April is, after all, the month when in the northern hemisphere buds begin to open and things start to grow again after the winter.
- April 10th, 1849 is the birthday of the Safety Pin
- April 29th, 1913 is the day the zipper was invented!
A NOTE FROM PAUL LEWIS
I would like to thank Social Club officers Bobbie, Joyce, Polly, Bill and also Geno along with all other members and non-members for their guidance and help at all of this past year’s activities. All activities were a success and very enjoyable. I look forward to working with the new officers in this upcoming year. There are now over 120 members in the Social Club and I would like to see more of these members involved in our activities and see them attending the monthly meetings.
Thanks to all!
