FROM THE SRHA PRESIDENT

STRAWBERRY RIDGE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION NEWS
By: Dolores Costoso, President 863-6505



Greetings; I am recovering from foot surgery, but there’s not much going on this month any way. There will be a board meeting on June 18th at 7 p.m. Plus our movie night is on June 20th at 7 p.m.

Here’s something we should all think about. Hurricane season is from June until November, and one could be here before you know it. If you have medical needs, during a hurricane is not the time to worry. The Hillsborough County Health Department has a form to help you. These forms are available at the Sales Office and once you have completed it, you can mail it to the address on the bottom of the form. You may have completed this form last year but it must be completed each year. In the event of a hurricane hitting us, once you have completed this form, you will be the first ones to get help. Please go to the office and get your form. This form is for your benefit.
