To The Pointe by President Susan Levine

Friday September 30, 2022

Good Morning Residents,

Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Kings Point and Coco Wood Lakes as they try to put their lives back together after a tornado swept through parts of their community. Our local Home Depot also sustained damages. We were very fortunate, we had no property damage. Only one tree fell on Mill Pointe. The front gate had no electricity Tuesday night when the Fire Department needed to enter our community causing the gate arm to be broken.  As soon as the parts arrive it will be repaired.

Hurricane Season in Florida is from June 1st to November 30th. The HPA Board along with the Phase Boards communicate to the residents through the Lifestyles Magazine, our Website and the weekly To The Pointe the need for the residents to be prepared with supplies well in advance and not wait for the last minute to try to gather their supplies. Water is always the first item to disappear from supermarket shelves. Hurricane Ian caused havoc in Florida and produced Tornadoes. Tornadoes are unpredictable, powerful, and very dangerous. You should have multiple ways to receive weather updates including your fully charged cell phone with local TV, weather apps and notification alerts. A Tornado Watch means weather conditions are good for a tornado to form. A Tornado Warning means a tornado has been sighted or picked up by weather radar.  Act quickly. You need to move to a small inner room, inner bathroom or closet away from windows.

FLU SHOTS

We would like to thank Karen Bleier and Publix for arranging for the Flu Shots to be given at HP.  It was another successful event. We had 85 residents who took advantage of this opportunity.

CLUBHOUSE RENOVATION – NO TRESPASSING
 

  • Theater – The existing stage and sound system has been removed.
  • Projection room – old equipment has been removed.
  • Back of theater –  restrooms plumbing is underway.

  
CAFE RENOVATIONS
 

  • Some drywall needed to be repaired in the kitchen area.
  • Painting of the kitchen will begin next week.

   
To our residents who observe Yom Kippur may you have an easy fast.

ENJOY LIFE!
Susan
