November has been a busy month for us with all of the Thanksgiving festivities, a visit from Elvis and his brother, and Veterans Day celebrations as well as HOA Resident services events including Florida Licensing on Wheels (FLOW), Shredding service at the Clubhouse and our annual AARP Safe Driving course for seniors. The Homeowners Association sends thanks to all of those residents who have volunteered and helped with many of these events. A special shout-out goes to Tim Mosher and his sous chefs who, as usual, prepared us a delicious feast on Thanksgiving Day.
The Christmas season is now fully upon us. Trees are decorated and lights from yards bring a smile. Santa is surely coming soon. And the HOA will once again sponsor a delicious Christmas dinner for all residents to enjoy. Tickets for the Christmas dinner will once again be free and available at the Sales Office with guest tickets (up to 2) available for $7. We will share this fabulous meal at 2 PM and please bring a dessert to share. Volunteers are still needed and appreciated. If you can help, please just let us know.
Next is our New Year’s Eve celebration, and we are proud to present Cliff Ritchie for entertain-ment. Knowing some people don’t choose to stay until midnight, we are this year having a first cel-ebration at 9 PM (midnight in Rio de Janeiro) and the traditional celebration at midnight. There will be noisemakers, hats, balloons and a champagne toast. Tickets are available for $10 ( $12 at the door). As usual, BYOB with soda and water available. See you all there to bring in the New Year of 2017!
We will be voting in March 2017 for three seats that are available on the Strawberry Ridge Homeowner’s Association. Do you think you might be able to help the board and the community? If you have any question, please call one of your board members.
On behalf of the Homeowner’s Association, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
When new people move into StrawBerry Ridge, there is nothing nicer than a visit from a friendly neighbor. If you are new to StrawBerry Ridge and didn't get a call, please contact Mazie McMahon at 655-0750 or Paula Somers at 684-8328.

As of April 1st we have started a new year for the membership in the Homeowner’s Association. This is the time to join. A one-year membership goes from April 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2017 and the cost is $6.00. If you want to join for three years, your membership will go from April 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2019 and the cost is $15.00. I have posted on the indoor and outdoor bulletin boards a list of people whose membership expired as of 3/31/16. If you’re not sure, please call me and I will let you know if you do. If you do renew or want to join, at the Activity Center, there is a bulletin board just left of the SRHA Office and a folder with blank application to join. Yes, even if you are renewing your membership, a new form needs to be completed. Again, if you have any questions, please contact me.
On the first Saturday of every month, a different organization sponsors the Coffee Hour. The monthly Coffee Hours are sponsored by the SRHA. If your group is interested in hosting, you may sign up on the Bulletin Board at the Clubhouse or contact any of the SRHA Directors. See you at the Clubhouse!
