Happy July Residents,
It is a fact that we are in the beginning of Hurricane season, and we are going to have some very high air conditioning bills for these hot summer months. Word to the wise regarding both of those facts: Be prepared, have a plan for hurricanes, and be sure your air conditioning has had its yearly check.
We just went through a tropical storm, which could have been much worse than it was. We had some winds and heavy rain. But please, do not become complacent regarding future warmings.
ELS has a hurricane guide in the lobby and available at every Saturday coffee. All the TV stations have programs regarding being prepared. Lake Fairways has survived hurricanes in the past, let's be prepared and safe so that we all survive whatever comes our way during this season.
The Board hopes that you are noticing the changes going on in the community. Trees are being taken care, comment forms are being responded to, mailbox repair/replacement has begun, our ceramic animals at the pool have been replaced, the kitchen has had some updating, there is a water fountain at the tennis courts, we have a new table top tennis table, all new equipment for the bocci court and pool table, the padlocks have been replaced and keys given out, the hot tub is working and the pool is clean, new furniture for the pool should be here in September, nighttime security should be starting soon, and Internet in the clubhouse is promised soon, new staffing hired for various locations, and we have a manager that is hands on – out in the field.
The Board is considering having a community meeting for the month of July. There are enough people that have been asking why we don’t have a meeting during the summer. The by-laws and 723 state that it is not a requirement, however we think keeping our community informed is also our responsibility. Watch for the date on your July calendar.
As always, you know your Board is always available. We are here to help you with any concerns and comments you may need help with. We are very happy to have established an open, and cooperative relationship with Jason Myers, our General Manager.
Be safe, be happy, Karen Pratt Beals
HOALF Board of Directors President
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
Residents of Lake Fairways Community,
Summer is approaching, and here we are wishing our friends that are leaving for their “other home,” safe travels. These are uncertain times, and we hope that all those leaving, for any period, will stay well, be happy, and look forward to returning to their home here in Lake Fairways.
Life continues here in Lake Fairways during the summer. The calendar for each month is filled with events, meetings, and activities.
We have wonderful groups like Summer Fun and Party Pals who have activities planned throughout the summer, beginning with May 1st.
The men’s club will continue to have their monthly cook out.
Groups of card players still meet. Just check your calendar.
And be a volunteer – I can’t think of any group that isn’t always looking for people to help.
Lately the Board of Directors has become the brunt of criticism for Rules and Regulations concerning events, parties or activities occurring in the clubhouse. The Board did not make any of the rules for the community, and we do not enforce them. Unfortunately, there have been things that have taken place in the past that ELS now feels those rules and regulations need to be enforced. Rules and regulations are made for a reason, for the protection of everyone, as well as for our community.
What happened to common sense, values, morals, trust, manners, respect? Most of us were raised with those and live with them daily. However, when we have people that litter our roads (59 beer cans last weekend) not picking up after their dogs, not respecting the noise ordinances, leaving litter behind at the pool for others to pick up, purposely damaging the hot tub, throwing statutes in the pool, having no regard to the speed limits on our roads, taking light bulbs from lamps in the clubhouse, it bears reminding everyone, this is our community, this is our home, all of us just want to live here and be happy. So, let those of us with those values, set an example!
The next general meeting of the community will be in September.
During the summer the Board of Directors will continue to meet with management and will keep you informed with minutes being posted on our website (lakefairwayshoa.com) and with the Informer.
Have a healthy, safe, and wonderful May!
Karen Pratt Beals HOALF Board of Directors President
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
Lake Fairways residents: If you are at the pool and using an umbrella, please close the umbrella before you leave the pool area. The winds are doing damage to the few umbrellas we have left when they are left open. If we can’t remember to close the umbrellas, the umbrellas are going to be removed from the pool area. Thank you.
We are having our fellow residents being attacked by a creature that is wild. That is why the “Do Not Feed The Wildlife “rule is in effect. Documented cases can receive a fine as much as $500. You may think feeding the birds is harmless. This is just one of the many problems it causes. Palm rats love those seeds and bread that is thrown out.
PLEASE stop feeding all wildlife
Residents: Please remember there is no parking allowed other than in the driveway of your own home.
Parking on the grass is not allowed.
Please remember: THE PARTITION WALLS IN THE CLUBHOUSE ARE NOT TO BE OPENED, CLOSED OR ADJUSTED BY RESIDENTS. MAINTENANCE WILL MOVE OR ADJUST IF REQUESTED.
