Sent 2020-09-28: Golf Tags - 

I want to inform you that we have received our yellow tags for your golf bags. All residents who will be golfing, not only have to have a tag on your golf cart, but also have a yellow tag on your bag. Please call the office before stopping by so I can have it ready for you. At the current time Covid-19 restrictions do not permit anyone other than current residents on the golf course. At such time in the future when other than residents are permitted on the course, they should also stop by the office to temporarily check out a yellow tag for their bag.
Please remember to continue to practice social distancing and wear your masks in all Sepo Buildings that are open … Thank you and Stay Blessed!!

Sent 2020-09-23: Ladies Golf  Info - 

It’s been decided to start up our summer golf playdays (Ladies’ Golf League Day). Some golfers are returning to our community, so hopefully will have enough to play. Our first playday will be September 30th and continue ongoing on Wednesday mornings. Meet in front of the Lounge at 8:45. Anyone who enters the lounge will need to wear a mask. Players will sign up then and get their hole assignments. Play will start at 9:00. Bring $1 to play. Winnings will be paid out of money collected. Golfers will play their own balls. You will not need to wear a mask when playing but do keep 6 ft away from other players. Only one person permitted per riding golf cart.
Our Ladies’ Golf League starts the first Wednesday in November (Nov 4). It is $25 to join the league.
Sure hope to see you all returning to the RGV. I know it will be difficult for some of you to get down here this season.

Sent 2020-09-12: QUESTION: SEPO Newsletter for 2020-10 - 

Well - It's that time of year when we normally start sending monthly SEPO Newsletters. I know this year has been strange and this coming Winter season is going to be totally different, at least for the forseeable future. But I was wondering if anyone had any information that would be appropriate for the Newsletter.

I would anticipate - 

  1. Possibly the Board saying a few words (either Covid or non-Covid related). Is this page still up-to-date so people know what to expect when they start returning to Sunshine soon.

  2. And maybe Neighborhood Watch, Men's and Women's Golf Leagues, Women's Club?

  3. What else?

Newsletter guidelines are HERE. So if I start getting articles from anyone, I will be more than willing to create the Oct. Newsletter.   Thanks

False alarm. Pippi showed up back IN my house out of nowhere. Can't imagine where she was, but she's here safe and sound.     Jill Ventrello

Sent 2020-09-10: Missing Cat - 

Please keep an eye out for my cat Pippi. She got out sometime yesterday. She's never been outside so she'll be very skittish. She's all black except for a little white on her tummy. Her sister and I miss her very much. Thank you so much.
