The Women's Club Executive Board is sad to announce that Marian Young has resigned as our President.  We wish to thank Marian for her time and devotion she has given to our club.

Sent 2022-03-30: Hot Tub - 

The hot tub is in the process of reheating. It automatically shut off the heaters, filters etc when all of the leaves and other stuff blew into it due to the high winds. We have cleared out the leaves and the machinery is operating again. However, it will take a little while for it to heat up. I do believe it should be warmed up again by tonight.

I know some of you have already either attended the 'hybrid' Board meeting on Mar 8, 2022 or you have watched the video I placed online last week. However, I've been both seeing and hearing comments that were not what was actually stated by various Board members during this meeting. I would recommend that (even though they are lengthy because the meeting was a long one) everyone read the written minutes. The entire board has already reviewed these 'unapproved' minutes. If anyone has any comments/questions they would like to address to the Board, I would encourage them do so.

You can find the minutes on the Web site HERE. Please let me know if you have any issues with viewing/printing the document. I hope you will take the time to read through them because there was a lot of discussion on a lot of topics.

NOTE: This was the final 'regular' Board Meeting for the 2021-2022 Winter Season. Any Board meetings held between now and Oct 11, 2022 with be either 'special' meetings, which will be Hybrid, or 'executive sessions', which will be closed to Board only.

Please reach out with any questions/concerns. Thank you.

Dear Friends - 
It is with sadness to report the passing of a former resident - Stan Nelson. 
He died peacefully yesterday Thursday 3 March at home.
Stan was an avid golfer and delivered Sunshine news on the net to us.
Stan and Sylvia moved to San Antonio several months ago to be with family.
God Bless them.       -- Lenore J Combs

Sent 2022-03-03: SEPO Communications Changes - 

As some of you know I have been looking into ways to free up my time from all of my Volunteer efforts for this wonderful community. I need to get some of my life back.

Anyway, I have been reviewing all of the 'communications' tasks I perform concerning the Newsletter, E-Mail and the Web site.

The Newsletter came first.
After several months of asking for help or turning it over to someone, Sue (Sue-Bob) Swidryk has graciously accepted the responsibility of preparing and distributing the Women's Club Newsletter to the community ongoing, starting with the Oct 2022 publication.

E-Mail was next.

  • I will continue to send SEPO E-Mails but will be changing the timing of when I send them. Instead of sending the e-mails out whenever I sit down at the computer and see them in my Inbox, I will be doing the following. When a SEPO e-mail arrives in my Inbox I will 'queue' it up to be sent overnight. By doing this you won't have to be checking your e-mail throughout the day (which most of you probably don't do anyway - HA). You will see everything the first time you log into your e-mail (at whatever time of day that may be). This new process will start next Monday, March 7.
     

  • I hear some of you asking yourself - what if I need something sent out right away? The solution to sending 'emergency' e-mails is for you to either 'call' or 'text' me and let me know of the urgency. I will send it as soon as I can.
     

  • NOTE: I will continue to update the Web site with all e-mails sent HERE. I will do this as time permits within 24 hours of an e-mail being sent.
     

Now for the Web site.

  • MARKET - 

    • Homes for Sale or RentI will continue to list these the same as I do now.

    • Looking For AND Household+ For Sale will be Going Away at 5PM on March 15.

      • I know this may upset some people. Although it is not difficult to do, it does take time to put those listings out there, most of the time with pics and then follow that up with an e-mail informing the community the page(s) were updated. And on multiple occasions I just get the info out there and I get a notice that the items sold immediately. Hence, I have to go out and delete everything I just added.

      • As Background - Both of these pages were created when Covid-19 hit. No one was allowed to enter the Library, which is previously where these types of items were posted. Now you are free to go to the library 24 hrs a day.

      • I will be asking the Board President, the Board Director of the SEPO Buildings and Valerie to determine if a different and/or better spot can be set aside in the Office/Library for residents to physically post these types of items ongoing. The community will be notified of the outcome of this review.
         

  • ​OTHER WEB PAGES - 

    • ​I plan to do a thorough review this summer of how the Web site is set up and what types of information is being posted. I would appreciate any and all constructive criticism/help with making the Web site a useful place for our Residents/Renters to obtain information. And I also want to make it as enticing as possible to attract new residents to our community.
       

On a final note, I will be updating any affected Communications Guidelines as my time permits and notify everyone when the guidelines have been updated on the Web site. If anyone has any questions, comments etc. about any of the above, please feel free to contact me. Thx for your understanding with these changes.
