VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR CHRISTMAS FEAST


CHRISTMAS HOME ALONE FEAST


LET FREEDOM RING 5/22/15



The Strawberry Ridge Homeowner’s Association will be making a bus trip to the Staz Theater on Friday, May 22, 2015. We will go to see the Florida Orchestra Concert of Let Freedom Ring/American Salute at 8PM. The cost of this is $25.00 per person for the bus and is non-refundable. Since the bus only holds 35 so the first 35 people are guaranteed a seat. Still sign up if your interest. In the event someone cancels, we will then notify the next person listed. If you cancel and we cannot fill your seat, you will lose the cost for the bus. The tickets are FREE! We now have a signup sheet posted at bulletin board by the SRHA Office at the Activity Center. On February 1st we will start to accept your payment. If you are paying by check, please make the check payable to Strawberry Ridge Homeowner’s and you can either call me (Rose Panella – 662-9862) or drop the check off at the SRHA Office which is at the Activity Center.

SRHA NOMINATING COMMITTEE



ATTENTION ALL SRHA VOTING MEMBERS!!



To all voting members of the SRHA:    Because of unforeseen circumstances, the vote for the By-Laws will now take place at the January 2015 General Meeting.  Remember, we need at least 50% plus one voting member to cast a vote. Please make every effort to come to the January 3, General Meeting or send in your proxy, so that we can have a vote then.  Thank you for your understanding.
 
STRAWBERRY RIDGE
HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
By: Sharon Hurley, President 315-9487

We are well into the holiday season. We shared a tremendous performance by the Hillsborough County Band on November
13th and another “as good as Grandma cooked” Thanksgiving feast prepared by resident chef, Tim Mosher, sponsored by your Homeowners Association and Strawberry Ridge with resident prepared specialty desserts.

As you know by now, the Homeowners Association has scheduled a vote to amend our By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation on Saturday morning, December 6th at our General Meeting. We must have 50% + 1 of the paid voting members to conduct the vote, so please come to cast your ballot immediately after our monthly Coffee and Donuts. You may cast your ballot in advance by completing a proxy vote and returning it to the SRHA Office in the Activity Center mail slot or by giving to any Board member. Please do help by casting your ballot to spare us the expense of holding another vote.  (NOTE FROM BLOGGER:  The voting on the Bylaws has been postponed to the January SRHA meeting.)

And now the Christmas season is upon us here in Florida. There will be no white Christmas, but yards and Christmas trees are decorated and there will be caroling from our brightly decorated golf carts and the annual Strawberry Singers Holiday concert on 12/13. And we will once again be serving a Christmas Alone feast at the Clubhouse on Christmas Day. There is no charge for dinner, but residents must sign up at the Sales Office so that we can be sure to have plenty of food and fun for all.

Before we know it, it will be New Year’s Eve with 2015 right before us. Join us for our annual New Year’s Eve Party with music by the Rhythm Makers to toast in the New Year together. Bring your noisemakers and party hats! Tickets will be available from any
Board member or by calling Sharon at 315-9487, Jean at 438-5166, or Rose at 662-9862. If you have missed our great parties, don’t miss this one!

On behalf on the Board of Directors of the Strawberry Ridge Homeowners Association, I would like to wish each and every resident a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
