SEPO Community E-Mails: March 2021

Sent 2021-03-31: REVIEW/REPLY REQUESTED: Renter's Directory Updates - 

This is an e-mail I do need you to REPLY TO.

It's the end of the quarter already. (WOW) That means it's a self-imposed time for me to update the directories on the Web site. This e-mail concerns RENTERS and those who have been renting to them. The info I had attached in the original e-mail shows in (YELLOW) everyone I believe is either vacating today or has vacated recently. And also anyone who is going to be renting for some additional time. (If you need to see that document again, contact Beth Parrish - see contact info below).

I need the owner and/or the renters of these homes to confirm my info is correct (or not). Then Valerie and I will sync up so that the office records are accurate.

NOTE TO RENTERS: Once you vacate the house you have been renting, you will be removed from the SEPO E-news E-Mail list. You can always follow what is happening here at Sunshine by going to the Web site HERE.

If any residents have renters that should be on this list, please provide Valerie and I with that info. Thanks for everyone's Rapid Reply to this.

I would like to thank all of my Friends and Neighbors who came by Saturday to help me celebrate my 90th birthday.
Almost all of the beer was consumed, but we had cake left over. What does that tell you about this neighborhood.
Seriously, it was a lot of fun and I again, I thank you.

Sent 2021-03-30:  PLEASE FIND ME A FOREVER HOME - 

This handsome tabby found us at the Texas AgriLife Master Garden - Tuesday, March 16.  He came running when he saw people with loud meows, saying “I am hungry, starving.” The fur coloring is a spotted tabby as the stripes are broken lines; bands of broken spots, evenly spaced.  He is extremely affectionate.  He is always swimming with his paws.  Wherever volunteers are working, he is close by, listening to the human voices. I have been feeding every morning.  When he hears me calling, he runs to me asking for attention rather than food.  

 

He is approximately 9 months old.  We would love to keep him, but we already have our limit of two cats rescued from the Harlingen Humane Society.  Can you help us find him a forever home?

 

With much appreciation

WOW - Gus Elliott is turning 90.     Gus is opening up his garage (and as much of the street as possible without hindering traffic) so that you can come by his house (4333 N Minnesota) this coming Sat, Mar 27, from 2pm to 4pm and wish him a Happy 90th Birthday. He said he'd also offer you a beer if you came by to see him. Sounds like bribery to me - HA - But also a good offer. He will appreciate your visit thoroughly.

FINAL REMINDER


I have been asked if I would put out a Sunshine Newsletter for April. After some thought, I decided I could do that. As always, if you have any anything upcoming that you would like the community to know about, here's your chance.

For this Newsletter we are going to go outside the lines somewhat.

  • You will be able to talk about any accomplishments your Club, Committee, etc have had this past winter season - even though we were still living with the pandemic.
     

  • I encourage those in charge of Clubs (like Killer Bees and Women's Club), Activities (like Tennis, Pickleball etc) or anything else anyone living in Sunshine might be interested in participating in next season, to compose a little bit about each in order for residents/renters to mull them over during the summer and possibly partake in things next winter season they might not have been aware of.

    I sympathize with all of our New Homeowners in 2020 and 2021 who haven't been able to get out and about and experience all of the great things we have to offer here in Sunshine.
     

As always ​the article needs to be submitted to seponewsletter@gmail.com by End of Day on the 24th of this month.

Please note that the SEPO Board is reviewing the current SEPO/Covid-19 Policies as listed on the Web site HERE
 
‘Some' restrictions were loosened slightly after the Mar 8, 2021 Board meeting. At this time, the SEPO Board is hoping we will be back to (at least mostly) normal activities and meetings during the 2021-2022 Winter Season here at Sunshine. Here is where you come in.

At the March 8, 2021 Board meeting, activities that are normally up for review/approval during each March Board Meeting were approved.

In the previous e-mail on this topic a 2-page document was attached. Most of you are familiar with it from using it pre-Covid-19. This list shows both the items that were approved verbally on Mar 8 (in YELLOW) and other activities that need to be requested via the SEPO Office and approved by the SEPO Board. The request process and revised Request Form were also attached in the previous e-mail.

I believe the documents mentioned above more than likely appeared small in the previous e-mail. Please note that those documents can also be viewed and printed from the Web site HEREI did fail to mention that the revised Request Form is also available: in the document slots - on the wall - in the Library area. Once we get more activities/meetings approved the 2-pager will also be available in those document slots.

I know some of you will look at the 2-pager and say - We do this all the time (i.e. tennis or water aerobics). The board would like everyone to look at this as a fresh start and please be so kind as to submit a Request Form for ALL things that you want/hope to do going forward. NOTE: This includes all items verbally approved at the Mar 8, 2021 meeting as well.

If you have any issues or questions, please contact Valerie in the office (956-425-1420 or sepo.office@gmail.com). You can also contact Beth Parrish (314-960-6710 or sepoboardbeth@charter.net).

Thanks in advance for your help with getting us prepared for the summer and for next winter season.

I have been in touch with Connie Garcia, Activities Coordinator at Sunshine RV (Encore) about the 2021 concert series which was obviously canceled this year. If you had purchased tickets for this year and had advised Encore that you would like to 'roll over' your tickets, you are all set. No money will be owed and you will have the same seats you purchased. The same groups will be performing, with the dates adjusted for 2022.

If patrons currently have tickets and have not requested a roll-over or refund, the person who purchased the tickets should get in touch with Connie Garcia (956)425-7448.
 
Tickets for 2022 for anyone who doesn't already have them will be available for purchase next fall. She did not have a price for new tickets.

The following was added to the Feb 25 minutes under New Business, Item 2.

***************
NEW BUSINESS

2 .Mecca, Treasurer - Consider amending our Policy and Procedures to provide for a section noted as “Fiscal Policies.”

Mecca Henry read her Fiscal Policy proposal (Attachment 2). Discussion of her proposal follows:

  1. All checks should be signed by the Treasurer unless the Treasurer is unavailable. If that occurs, the next available persons, in the following sequential order shall be sought out to sign requested check(s): President, 1st VP, then 2nd VP.
    (Discussion) This is more of a clarification of the ByLaws. They already state this but it is just not quite as determined.
     

  2. Invoice related payments will normally be issued only once a week on Fridays. In the case of a COD or an emergency, accommodations will be made to issue payment. Ideally this needs to be coordinated with the Treasurer.
    (Discussion) Mecca wanted to put it in writing - write checks once a week. We don’t really have consistent items where we need to be writing checks all the time. It makes it easier for Mecca Henry and Valerie to plan their time.
     

  3. Invoices and timecards must be approved by a Board Member.
    (Discussion) Mecca Henry wanted to make sure that whoever is in charge of employees is looking at their timecards and can sign off on them. Same thing with invoices. Whoever’s responsibility should confirm that – Yes, we need to pay this. Mecca isn’t comfortable with invoices being paid without this verification.
     

  4. Credit card charges must have a receipt.
    (Discussion) This has sometimes been an issue sometimes. Receipts have been lost. A copy can be requested. We need this backup, especially if something come up tax-wise. These are things we need to be doing. Mecca just wanted to get it in writing.
     

  5. Board Members should not, under normal circumstances, use their personal funds and later seek to be reimbursed by SEPO. Only in emergencies should this occur.
    (Discussion) Mecca’s point is, it doesn’t look very good if, on a monthly basis, we are cutting big checks to board members. She’s not saying they are doing anything wrong. It just has the appearance of looking a little funny and she would like to cut down on this.
     

  6. All backup documentation should be reviewed by the check signer prior to signing checks.
    (Discussion) Prior to now Valerie was giving a board member the checks to sign. If they had a question, she answered it. Mecca has instructed her, from now on, she wants to see all backup documentation to ensure it’s been signed off by a board member. It should be for something reasonable before it is signed off on. Also, if it is coded to the wrong line item, Mecca can fix it immediately and she won’t have to go back a week or a month later and try to find it.


Mecca Henry then made a motion to incorporate her proposal into the Policies & Procedures. Jean Burgoine seconded the motion. It was passed unanimously by those present at the meeting.

HER CONTACT INFO IS AT THE
END OF THIS MESSAGE.

 
WHO: This is a special vaccination clinic set up for Sunshine residents only!
WHAT: Get your COVID Vaccine (Moderna - 1st and or 2nd dose)
(Remember to bring your card if this if for your 2nd dose)
WHEN: Friday, 5 March, 9am until 11 am

              Harlingen, TX
 
Please note - Friday 9a – 11am on 5 March 2021 is only for us.  The Health Dept. will be open for certain exceptions until 3pm.
 
Our efforts to date have indicated that quite a few of our residents welcomed the opportunity to utilize the “assistance” we now know we can provide.

Next Steps / Game plan:
This strategy is to keep patient privacy intact and for the local Health Department to have a heads up on who is coming.
 
I need to know who is coming on Friday. TODAY I will be contacting those of you who have indicated you want the vaccine and are currently on the list.
 
If you are not on the list and would like to be – please contact me as soon as possible by any of the following methods:

  1. Best way - email me your request to LJCombs44@gmail.com so I have a record for follow-up.

  2. Phone (956 245 1276) is next best.

  3. Drop off a note (4137 N Minnesota St) to me listing COVID Vaccine info, Name & Phone #.
