I would like to thank everyone who joined us Sunday evening to watch the Super Bowl at the clubhouse.  This get-together would not have happened without you.  Rose Panella and I would also like to thank some very special people here in the park for their help in setting up and tearing down. 
A big thank you goes to Barbara Phillips who was at the clubhouse from 1:00 PM until 10:30 PM, working her feet off.  Thank you to Dave Snodgrass and Joe Bledsoe who came in to help set up the tables for the game. Thanks also to Tim Mosher for the wonderful chili he cooked for us.  There were many compliments for that.  Thanks also for helping us to set up and tear down.  Thank you Kathy Kendall.  You didn't know you were going to help out, did you?  It was greatly appreciated. Thank you to Carol Felicia who gave us a bunch of party favors and lent us her popcorn machine.  A very special thank you goes out to Bob Brown.  He offered to bring in an additional large screen TV so that everyone could enjoy the game no matter where they sat.  I can't thank you enough for that, Bob.  A lovely couple that I only know as Anthony and Lori, who just bought a home here in the park on Saturday, came to the  party.  They stayed to the end and helped us clean up.  Wow, they don't even live here yet, and they're helping!  God bless you.
All in all, it was a very good party, made even better by a fantastic ball game and the Patriots winning the Super Bowl!

February 2015

It's February here in Florida. The Gasparilla pirates have just invaded our shores, it’s time for the Florida State Fair and the fabulous Strawberry Festival‘s upon us. That means we can all have all the strawberries and shortcake we want!

The Strawberry Ridge Homeowners Association is sponsoring an AARP Driver Safety Program here in the Activity Cen-ter on Saturday, 2/21/15 from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. This popular program costs $15 and can remove points from your license and give insurance discounts upon completion. Please call Jean Di Benedetto at 438-5166 to register. We are also planning to sponsor the AARP Car Fit program in March. This program is designed for older adults to insure their car “fits” them for maximum safety.

Plan to party with your neighbors for the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 1st at the Clubhouse! There will be multiple large screen TV’s, games, $1.00 football pool, chili and snacks, and your favorite beverage (BYOB). It’s always more fun to root for your team with an audience. Tickets are $5 at the door or in advance on Wednesdays from 11 AM – 1PM in the SRHA office in the Activity Center or by calling Jean at 438-5166 or Rose at 662-9862.
