SEPO Community E-Mails: November 2020

Sent 2020-11-30: Thank You to the Board - 

I want to send a huge personal Thank You to Tony Tramel, Board Secretary, for investigating using virtual software for the Board meeting today. I know he spent several hours figuring out the best approach/software to use to do that. And that involved several tests with residents prior to the meeting in order to get it set up and to provide as clear as possible instructions on how to join the meeting.

And I also want to send out a personal thanks to the SEPO Board for being open to providing a Virtual Board Meeting today.

In this Covid-19 stricken world it is comforting that we have options, such as a virtual meeting, to keep everyone 'safely' informed about our wonderful Sunshine community.

Thanks again,     Beth Parrish

Virtual SEPO Board Meeting
Instructions for using “Google Meet”

This is an experiment for the SEPO Board.  There may be several technical difficulties in making this work but this an attempt to provide access to our Board meeting, while recognizing our Covid-19 restrictions.

We are attempting to make this happen with only 24 hours to see if we can get it to work. Please bear with us for this first trial run.

I am sure we will learn from this attempt, and I want to assure you, we are trying to make this happen within our limitations.  All we can do is hope for the best.  We will have an assessment of our success, or not, after our Board meeting.

If you have a gmail account getting online for the meeting is straightforward.  If you do not have a gmail account, you may need to download/install the “Google Meet” app on your iPhone or Android before proceeding.

It is suggested you begin signing in for this 3:00 PM virtual meeting by 2:45 PM.

Notwithstanding this issue: Please click on this link or paste into your Browser on your device -   Once connected to this web page and if a code is requested, enter the following code.

Once connected to Google Meet, you will need to turn on your screen and microphone of your device. 

Once doing that, it is requested you mute your microphone, so background noises are minimized.

Once you are muted, you will have to “unmute” your device on your end to speak.

The software we are using is free and may not have all the bells and whistles other online meeting software may have.

Let us hope for success.

Dear friends of Sunshine Country Club Estates,


We would like to thank all of you for your condolences and honorariums for the passing of our mother, Arlene Keller.

For those of you who attended mom's live-stream service, a very special thank you.


Many of you have provided her with numerous years, too many to count, of wonderful, loving memories. For that, we will be forever grateful! We find peace and comfort knowing mom is with dad again, probably square dancing, playing cards or golfing. All of which they loved doing together!!!


We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and we thank our good lord for such loving friends.

Since (at this time) all of the remaining activities the Women's Club had originally planned for this winter season are Cancelled, I am trying to come up with some activities that Sunshine residents can help me organize and partake in - and that also follow SEPO Covid-19 restrictions.

If I get some volunteers to help me plan/execute these endeavors, the next step will be to obtain approval from the Board to schedule them.

In the next few months I would like to put together:

  • a golf cart scavenger hunt rally

  • a lawn games event 

  • a golf at night glow game event.

I need at least 3 volunteers per event to help me plan and organize each one. If you are interested, please email me at or call me at 847-452-7804. Thanks in advance for help with this.     Sue Swidryk

Contact me if you have any questions etc. Thanks     Lenore J Combs 956 245 1276 


Pic_Toys for Tots.jpg

Hello Everyone here at Sunshine, 

Earlier today, the Harlingen Police Department dropped off a Toys For Tots box.  It will be in the Sunshine Library for the next few weeks just waiting to overflow. If you can find it in your heart to donate a toy for this cause, it would be deeply appreciated. The mission is to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. It is one of the top rated charities and our PD teams up with the local Marine Corps League. It is also a 501 C (3). A donated ~ ten dollar toy of your choice will make some child’s day.   Just wrap it simply with a ribbon and place “BOY" or "GIRL" and the age visibly on the bottom.  Ultimately, Harlingen PD, with its partners, has access for the distribution plan which is usually mid December. I have worked a bunch of these and they are breathtaking – to see the kid’s eyes light up for a gift – and to see them sit on Santa’s lap for a photo op – wow!  Thanking you in advance for your marvelous generosity.

Sent 2020-11-14: Sunshine Heroes Wall of Honor - 

Project Background - It was decided here at Sunshine that we would recognize our neighbors, not for a single act of heroism but their heroic service. We wanted to recognize the people from our community who made a commitment to give part of their lives for the benefit of others. This is what the SUNSHINE HEROES Wall of Honor represents.  It is our way to recognize them and say thank you for your service. 
Last Spring in Retzlaff Hall, we unveiled our Sunshine Heroes Wall of Honor complete with their engraved names on an individual metal plate. There is also a Memory Book of photos of our heroes. This touching monument serves as a reminder that many of our residents sacrificed their lives for the freedom we enjoy today. (See picture below.)
You may support this wall by completing an application and some brief information (form available at SEPO Office). We would like a photo in uniform. Jim Tennant is available for questions 616 866 9960.
What is a Veteran?  - whether retired, discharged, active duty or reserve – is someone who at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to ”The United States of America” for an amount up to and including his or her life. (Author unknown)
What Is A Hero? - defines a hero as a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character.
A true hero is someone who gives of themselves for the benefit of others, sometimes at great personal risk. There are many in our community who have given parts of their lives in the service of our country regardless of the risk.  There are those who have chosen a career of community service – Law enforcement, First Responders and Fire Fighters are examples. All these people have given freely of themselves for the benefit of others. These are a few examples of what we can all recognize as heroes, but we do not usually honor them for their service.
If you save a person from a car accident or give CPR to someone you would be recognized for heroism. The person who donates blood to help others is a hero. A person who may donate an organ or bone marrow is a hero. Are these very special people any more heroic then the others who served us?

Hello Everyone, For several years, we here at Sunshine have been bell ringers for the Salvation Army. Our usual day is the day after Thanksgiving. This year, Sally Dronen and I will be coordinating this event. Due to covid-19 and people being laid off, the food banks are low on food. 100% of the money collected stays in the valley. The North and South side doors at Wal-Mart have been reserved for our group. One or two people at each door, for one hour, are needed to ring the bells. The times are from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. There will be a signup sheet in the library on the 14th. The date to ring bells is Friday, November 27, 2020. The Salvation Army will provide PPE (Personal Protective Equipment like gloves, masks, hand sanitizer), but if we supply our own, they can save their supply for others.

Sent 2020-11-11: Concerning Replies to SEPO E-Mails - 

Hi All – I know we have had lots of new neighbors move into Sunshine this year. So, the following may be new to some of you. This is also a reminder to those of you who have seen my ‘do not reply’ request before.

My ultimate goal with this e-mail is to help you understand why you shouldn’t reply to a SEPO e-mail unless you are requested to do so. I am going to attempt to explain how things work when you want an e-mail sent to the community.

  1. A resident sends information that he/she wants the SEPO Community to see by e-mailing that info to The Guidelines for requesting a SEPO e-mail to be sent are located on the Web site here. (NOTE: These guidelines were updated today, 11-11-2020)

  2. The e-mail request from the resident comes to the sepoenews mailbox, which is monitored by the SEPO E-Mail Admin. At the current time, that is me, Beth Parrish.

  3. Upon receipt of an e-mail request, please give me 48 hrs to send it out. However, I often get them sent the same day. If your request is an emergency – let me know that and I will get it out as quickly as I can.

  4. When preparing to send the e-mail a Resident requested be sent out, I copy and paste it into a system called Send-In-Blue. That is why you see the ‘unsubscribe’ message and Logo at the bottom of each e-mail sent.

If you wish to unsubscribe from our newsletter, click here

Send-In-Blue E-Mail Logo.jpg

  5. When you receive a Community E-Mail from the Send-In-Blue system the following are constant:

  • The ‘From’ always says SEPO Community.

  • The ‘To’ is the e-mail address that you, as a Resident, has supplied to me.

So now – in ending this long explanation – here are the KEY points to remember:

  • I am the only one who receives REPLIES to the sepoenews mailbox.

  • That means I am the one who would need to ‘forward’ your reply to the composer of the e-mail. I do forward them sometimes, but I cannot guarantee all your replies get to the person you had intended to see it.

  • That is why it is so important to reply to the COMPOSER of the e-mail, unless you are requested to reply directly to All Resident e-mails that have been supplied to me are HERE.

I am sure most of you know I do spend a lot of time working on SEPO communications – E-Mails, Web site and the Newsletter. I am happy to volunteer to do this, but also want you to understand some of what I do and why I request ‘no replies’ to e-mails sent out. OK – I’m done now. LOL.
Thanks for your understanding with this matter.

Hi Everyone – My name is Dana Weise and I am Chairing the 2021 SEPO Board Nominating Committee. Dan Danks and Bill Peterson are working with me on this committee. I know this e-mail is lengthy. However, I hope it gives everyone a better idea of our current situation. Please read through to the end and help us out, if at all possible.


To refresh everyone on how this committee works here is an excerpt from the Sunshine Country Club Estates (SCCE) By-Laws (located on the Web site HERE).


The following is from the -






1957 West Michigan Drive

Harlingen, TX 78550



Nominations and Ballots


6.01  The Board of Directors shall, at least sixty (60) days before the election, appoint a Nominating Committee of three (3) to five (5) members to submit a slate of nominees for Directors to be placed on a ballot for hand delivery or mailing to members. The nominating committee shall post its selection of Nominees at least ten (10) days prior to the January Meeting of Residents and Directors. The Committee shall submit its nominations to the members at the January meeting of Residents and Directors and nominations from the floor will be accepted. The Board shall thereupon validate the status of members, as defined under Article II herein, and cause the committee report to be posted on the Club House bulletin board for a ten (10) day period. At or about noon of the tenth day the report will be removed from the bulletin board. A paper ballot shall be prepared, under the direction of the Board of Directors, to include the nominations of Directors and other items authorized to appear on the ballot.

(See the Web site HERE for additional information and next steps.)


To update you on our progress in getting possible Board nominees, our committee has been speaking to many residents about the upcoming ‘four’ positions that will be available on the Board. While attempting to recruit potential candidates, the responses have been less than favorable to take on this position/duty, at least in the number of residents I have personally spoken to.


I have gotten some good assistance and advise from residents who have lived here in Sunshine CCE for many years, who have either been previous Board members or have run for the Board in the past. The comments and advice I have received have been enlightening and have helped me better understand how the Board’s (volunteer positions) can be somewhat demanding and time consuming for many of them wanting or accepting to take the time they feel is required.


This is something I had expected when I was asked to head-up the committee. I graciously accepted the challenge and recruited a couple other residents to assist me with the search for (committed and reliable) residents who:

  • Would have some true and sincere interest in accepting a nomination.

  • Are willing to work together as a Team Player with the other Board Members.

  • Would put forth their best efforts to help and keep this fantastic community that we are all partnered with (as residents).

  • Would continue making this Development, in all aspects, the same beautiful and appealing community we all like and enjoy.

  • Would be Proud to be a part of the highly successful environment it is today.




I and the rest of the committee are asking ALL RESIDENTS if any of you have any interest at all in partaking in becoming a Board Member? I would like to make it a Private and Confidential sit-down/meet in person with me and the other committee members to discuss and answer each of your questions, concerns and responsibilities of the Position of becoming a Board Member. Hopefully, this may provide a more comfortable atmosphere for both those of you who have resided in Sunshine for some time, as well as the newer residents. Confidentiality, I believe, is the key ingredient so that no one will know who the nominees are until it is deemed necessary to announce them prior to election voting.


An isolated/private location will be determined at a later date. I am also willing to sit down with any resident (in Private) to listen to everyone’s advice and/or opinions to HELP make this a successful process.

Thank you for your assistance in helping our committee finalize the best possible Candidates for Sunshine Country Club Estates!


Kindest regards,

Topgolf is a golfing game that anyone can play (and win). Score points by hitting micro-chipped golf balls at giant dartboard-like targets on an outfield. The closer you get your ball to the center or 'bullseye' and the further the distance, the more points earned.
There are games for all skill levels....novice to well seasoned. No experience needed.
Guests of all ages and experience can score and win.
You reserve a private bay which holds 4 or 6 players. You compete with your friends.
Top Golf has a full eating menu, appetizers, flatbreads, sandwiches, salads, burgers etc. as well as drinks to purchase. There is a charge for food and drinks. But you are not required to eat or drink.

The nearest Top Golf location is just off the highway in Pharr.

COVID-19: Guests are required to wear a facemask at Topgolf Pharr, upon entry to the venue until you get to your table or bay, and while moving throughout the venue. When in your bay at a safe social distance from other guests who are not in your group, you are not required to wear a mask - this includes while eating, drinking or hitting. Masks are not required for children under the age of 4 or for those with underlying health conditions.
I'm trying to determine if there is any interest in participating in an outing of folks from Sunshine. The date would be either Tuesday, November 17th or Tuesday November 24th from 3pm to 5pm.

If you are interested, call SueBob, 847 452-7804.
