We have survived winter thus far with little snow but enough cold to make our longing for spring insatiable.
The chill of winter has not deterred construction efforts around our community, however
New storm drains and total reconstruction of 141st Street by town contractors is well on the way, with a completion scheduled for early April.
This contractor is often working 12 hour days and Saturdays to stay ahead of the game. The noise from heavy equipment and the lack of street parking has been a bit trying, but a beautiful end product will surely add to property values throughout our community. Look for a complete update later in this newsletter. We thank the town for investing in our community.
We received just one request this year for our charity of the year. It was made by Friends of Possibilities, which helps children with Type 1 diabetes enjoy a week of summer camp. It is a cause well served!
We encourage all able-bodied neighbors to join us at Fiesta Park for our annual spring clean-up April 6. We make great use of the park and facilities for all our events, and it is a treasure to have in the neighborhood. The clean-up coincides with the town’s spring clean-up weekend with free bulk pickup April 6-7. Get those big items that are too difficult to haul away and kick them to the curb!
Our 2019 kick-off picnic is set for Saturday, June 22, noon to 3 p.m. at Fiesta Park. We look forward to seeing everyone again! Come out and enjoy a fun afternoon of food and camaraderie.
Bob Higgins of Higgins Crab House has graciously agreed to host our 11th annual charity crab fest on Saturday, Sept. 22. Get your tickets early, as this day of socializing and crab picking is always a sell-out.
Finally, as we inch toward spring, we look forward to the return of our snowbird neighbors. Continue to keep a watchful eye on their homes, and be sure to call OCPD if you see any suspicious activity.
Hope to see you all soon!
