Two Things:

ONE -
Both myself and the office get periodic inquiries from people both within and outside of Sunshine about whether there are any Sunshine homes for Sale or Rent. If you have one (or both) of these and would like to publish your listing on the Sunshine Web site, please send the information to me at sepoenews@gmail.com.

The guidelines for what I need from you to publish are here: https://www.sunshinecountryclub.com/guidelines-sale-rent-homes

TWO - 
For those of you who currently have listings out there right now, this is a perfect opportunity to review them and let me know if anything has changed.

We seem to be having a problem with people randomly repositioning the pool and spa jets.  The jets should be positioned so the water flows upwards.  This pushed the oils (from bathers not showering off sunscreen) and the tidbits the wind blows into the pool toward the filters.  Please, help care for your pool by not repositioning the jets.  Thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely,

Sent 2022-07-19: UPDATED: SEPO Directories - by Name, Address & E-Mails - 

On July 6 I had asked everyone to review the SEPO Directories and provide me with any required updates. While I was on vacation last week, I received several and will make sure the office gets those updates as well.

I have uploaded what I consider the updated documents to the Web site HERE.

The new files are Directory sorted by Name and also sorted by Address. And finally the e-mail Directory. I still need to sync up the Renter's Directory and E-mails & the Directory of Photos. Give me a few days on those please.

Please take a couple of minutes to ensure your data is correct. NO NEED TO REPLY TO ME UNLESS THERE IS AN ISSUE.

Not sure if anybody notice, but I hadn't had the time to update the Web site since March and, believe me, I will never go that long again without synching up with the Office. There's way to much Buying, Selling and Relocating going on at Sunshine !!!!

Thanks for helping me keep 'your' data accurate and up-to-date.

Sent 2022-07-08: SEPOENEWS Availability - 

I will be on vacation next Mon thru Thu (July 11 thru 14). During this time I will have limited (if at all) access to the sepoenews e-mail system. If you know of any e-mail you might want sent during this timeframe, please send it to me before 7 PM this Sunday and I will get it sent out. If you have an emergency next week, I will do my best to get it sent as quickly as I can.     Thanks for your understanding.

And now, that being said: If anyone is interested in learning how to send SEPO e-mails please give me a call. I will need someone to cover me during two future vacations I have planned that will take me out of the country for  about 2 wks in duration each. They will be in Nov 2022 and again in April/May 2023. I can teach you the basics for sending simple e-mails, which is very simple in iteself. Simple means those that don't involve Web site updates and linking to files. And remember, if I can't get someone to back me up - nobody will get any e-mails while I'm gone. Thx in advance for someone's / anyone's help with this.

Sent 2022-07-06: PLEASE REPLY: SEPO Directories to Verify for Office & Web site - 

+++++ PLEASE REPLY TO sepoenews@gmail.com AS REQUESTED BELOW +++++

Most of you have gone thru this before. But for those of you who are new to Sunshine - in 2022, and especially since mid-March (which is the last time I did this verification) - WELCOME, and I need your help. And for those of you who are NOT new, I need your help as well.

Not sure who uses or who has even noticed that the SEPO Directory on the Web site is several months old. Although I've been collecting updates, both from the SEPO Office and from residents since Mid-March, I just haven't had the time to do what I've been doing these last two days. And that is to prepare the updated Resident Directory (sorted by Name) and the Resident E-mail directory for all of you to review.

I'm asking everyone to PLEASE just take a minute or two to look at the data I have listed for you in the two files linked to below. I plan to update the Web site with these files this weekend on Sunday.

If you have no updates/correction, you do not need to reply. However, if you do, please get them to me ASAP.

 

NOTE: The e-mail that I sent out had the direct links to both the e-mail and the name directories. Due to the sensitivity of this info those links are not posted here. If you need them again, please contact me at sepoenews@gmail.com.

PLEASE contact me with issues/questions. Thx in advance for helping keep your SEPO Resident up-to-date and accurate.
