Sent 2020-07-29: FOUND: Trash Bin - 

A trash bin was found after the storm. If yours went missing (most likely on Nebraska) it can be claimed at 4117 Nebraska.   Thank you     SEPO Office

Sent 2020-07-29: Front Gate and Storage Lot Gate Clarification - 

Some residents have expressed confusion concerning the two e-mails sent out today about the Front Gate Keypad Code change and the Storage Lot Clicker issue.

Hope this clarifies - 

The Keypad for the Front Gate on Texas Avenue has been changed effective today Wed, July 29, 2020. Your clicker will not require any changes/updates and will still work to get into the Front Gate when it is locked.

The Storage Lot Gate has been fixed. It's possible your clicker may need to be updated by Valerie in the SEPO Office in order to open the Storage Lot Gate.

Beth Parrish for Frank Tewell and Valerie Basaldua

Sent 2020-07-29: Storage Lot Gate Repair - 

There was an issue with the gate to the Storage Lot, which has been fixed. However, for those residents who have older clickers, you may not be able to get into the Storage Lot. If this happens to you, please contact Valerie in the SEPO office at 956-425-1420 and she will reprogram your clicker for you.

The Keypad for the Front Gate on Texas Avenue has been changed effective today Wed, July 29, 2020.
Please continue to keep all Keypad Codes discrete. Due to its confidentiality you will need to go to the "Residents' Only" section of the Web site to obtain the new code. There you will also find contacts for any problems or questions. 
If you know of anyone who is not on this e-mail distribution, please inform them of this change. Thank you.

Wish we could have a real meeting with Ice Cream but, these are the times that try men's souls........
We are most fortunate to live in this special community and we are especially lucky to live among residents who are all on the same page.  The NW Volunteers are a special breed as they go above and beyond.  We work with the SEPO Board, the Police from Harlingen and Combes, EMS and the Fire Department.  I get calls and little notes just checking on how we are.  PD has frequent safety patrols in here.  CERT from the FD checks on us too.  We are not alone in this mess. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please call me.  In the meantime, have a Root Beer Float and give Thanks.

Toward the end of last week I was given some information regarding Lalo. I was asked by some residents if I had heard anything and I passed that information on. As of Sunday evening I found that that information was not entirely accurate. I want to apologize for passing along inaccurate information. I am sorry for any confusion this may have caused. My only concern right now, is for the health and safety of Lalo’s family.     Jim Kennedy

Dear Friends -  🎼       😊
We shall have a July 4th Celebration Parade in honor of Independence Day.  
Golf Cart Line up at Office 7pm    🕖    
Covid rules are in order   *social distance,  have *masks available
Corvid - 19 has challenged our lifestyle but not our spirit.  Independence Day is an important holiday and a symbol of patriotism.  Its most common image is our American Flag and the accompaniment of our National Anthem.  
George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of Independence Day but we will savor a virtual Hot Dog and Root Beer Float    🌭🍧   yum  yum
