STRAWBERRY RIDGE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION NEWS
By: Dolores Costoso, President (813) 863-6505

Well, everyone, that lion from March got to roar. Three northeasters in a row is a bit too much. While it didn’t snow and rain in Florida, other parts of our country didn’t fair so well. We just got cold. A little. The lamb needs to hurry up and bring us warm weather again. That’s why we live in Florida!

April is a quiet month for us . On the 7th, we have our general meeting. This will be an important meeting, because we will be voting on extending the Mulrennan Gate hours to 8pm. The voting process is open to all homeowners.

On the 14th, we will have our first country dance in several years. Eric Lee will provide entertainment for us. Tickets are $8.00 in advance, $10.00 at the door. On the 21st, Wood Shop is having a garage sale. Make sure you bring plenty of money. On the 28th, is our Saturday Night Movie. The movie is to be determined. Movie night is open to all and it’s first come, first seated. The Activity Center can seat 50 people comfortably. There isn’t a bad seat in the room. A big Thank You goes out to Mr. Bob Young. Due to his generous donation of $1000, we were able to purchase a new 60” flat screen TV, sound bar, and blue-ray player. You truly get the movie experience without the price tag. Potluck snacks are welcomed. The Bridges will not be back until September. Over the summer, I will be working with Janet Noah to bring new and fun projects to our residents. As always, stay happy and healthy.
