April 2015

Congratulations to our newly reelected Directors, Jean DiBeneditto and Patricia O’Keefe, and to our newly appointed (to fill a vacancy) Director, Kathy Beck. I wish to thank all of the Homeowners Association members for their support.

We are looking forward to an exciting and fun year and are beginning to plan for events and activities to present in the coming year. We do plan on continuing our free July 4th picnic and free Music by the Water summer events and our traditional free Thanksgiving and Christmas Home Alone dinners.

Membership for the SRHA is now reopened. It’s $6 for one year and $15 for three (3) years and well worth the cost just for the free events. Contact Rose Panella at 662-9862 to renew or to join.

Good news! The SRHA is in the process of repairing our elderly and long neglected sound system in the Clubhouse. We are looking forward to all clubs and activities having a reliable sound system for all activities and events.

This month, we feature a Bon Worth Fashion Show on Tuesday, 4/21 at 1 PM with our own Strawberry Ridge fashion models and a homemade lunch with gifts and games for only $4.

The fabulous Cliff Ritchie, performing a tribute to the legends, will be performing here on Saturday, 4/18 and tickets are going fast for $8 in advance ($10 at door). Reserve your table now with the purchase of 8 tickets from any Board member or Wednesdays at the SRHA office from 11am-1pm.

Future plans include the bus trip to the Florida Orchestra’s Let Freedom Ring concert at the STRAZ on 5/21, a free ice cream social and Meet and Greet with Congressman Dennis Roth on 6/30 and much more. Your idea, suggestions, and assistance is always sought and welcomed.

Let Freedom Ring/American Salute

Right now, we still have 6 seats available to come and hear Let Freedom Ring/American Salute. At this time, this is open to the public. In other words, you do not have live here to come with us but you know someone who would like to come, please contact me, Rose Panella, at 662-9862. The cost is only $25.00 per person to come. We must sell these spots by March 31st, if we don’t, we will have to cancel this trip. The tickets for the theater are FREE. You are only paying for the transportation to the theater and back to Strawberry Ridge.

Pat Dunlap has resigned due to health issues effective April 1st. The board would like to take this time express our deepest thank you for all that has done. She has done a fantastic job in the past years for chairing the membership. I am now the new person to contact for membership.

Our membership is $6.00 for 1 year and $15.00 for 3 years. Joining now for 1 year gives you a membership from April 1, 2015 thru March 31, 2016. If you decided to join for 3 years, your membership will be from April 1, 2015 thru March 31, 2018.

I will be posting a list of those current members whose membership has expired effective March 31, 2015. Applications for joining can be dropped off at the Homeowner’s Office which is in the Activity Center. I will be there on Wednesdays this month between 11 am and 1 pm. If you are a current member, please enclose your current membership card if you wish to have that updated. 

FYI from your SRHA....

YOUR Voice Heard on Transportation in Your Daily Life.

We all know that transportation affects everybody’s life, every day. Unfortunately, though, we are facing critical funding shortfalls as our population expands and our congestion increases. With this pressure on our already declining transportation system, we must come together to deal with this before our standard of living diminishes.

Join us for an upcoming interactive workshop.

We want to understand how transportation impacts you and your family every day. RSVP for any of the community workshops below to help us understand your issues, perspectives and experiences concerning transportation. We need your help to create a Community Transportation Plan that will make your life better
