Dear Friends - 

- You are all cordially invited to a NW Block Captains meeting on March 25th  Monday  at 3pm in Retz Hall.

- The purpose of the meeting is to line up those who may wish to assist with this aspect of NW.  As many residents are gone, it is good to have extra eyes and ears in Sunshine.  Also, it is a good program for all to know about.

- Simple duty - watch out for suspicious activity, harden the target for the Bad Guys, open communication on your block (street) call me or 911 when needed.

- We have thorough guidelines from the National Block Captains programs.  They are simple and practical.


Plan:  See ya Monday

STREETS - if short maybe 1 or 2 volunteers needed but  if longer maybe 3 or so needed - just for convenience and not to be such a burden.     


Your ideas appreciated.

Dates for Board Meetings, the Good Neighbor Day Golf Tournament and Women's Club Activities, which have the top priorities, have all been reviewed and approved by the Board. They are listed in the 2-pager whic is always available, with updates, HERE.

Now is everyone else's opportunity to get your plans for next winter down on paper and submitted to the office for approval. The process & forms to do this can be obtained from the office and are also HERE.

I have listed on the 2-pager (in light orange) everything which is already in the SEPO Calendar for next Winter. For everything else, please work with the office to get your activity approved and in the SEPO calendar. As is stated in the process above, at this point it's first come, first approved.

Hey gals, our Golf Meeting is this coming Wednesday March 20th, at 9:00 am in the Hall.  Donuts and Coffee will be served.  Golf play will be right after our meeting.  This is our last meeting of the year, we have a few items to finish up, and election of new officers.   We then will have one more official league play March 27th.  We continue to play on Wednesdays for fun action during April and May, then those who live here year-round continue to play all summer, usually at 8:00 before it gets too hot.  Official League starts back up November 6th, 2024.    


A reminder we have our Golf Award/Lunch this coming Friday, March 22nd, at 11:00 am in the Hall. Even if you did not play in the Tournament and are a paid woman golfer you are certainly welcome to attend the lunch.  We have awards to hand out for our 3-day tournament and to give a fair well wish to Helen Perry, who has been a welcome member of our Women's Golf League for many years.  Helen you are missed already.     Just a note we will need to be out of Hall by 1:00 pm, another group is needing to start preparation for another event.  


Again, thank you for a successful year and taking part of a great organization.  I enjoyed every minute working and being part of a great team.  


I want to personally thank my team who worked hard this year and assisted in many ways to help us all be successful.   Deloris Pearcy- Vice President, Marlene Hall-Secretary, Glenna Boardman-Treasurer, Donna Myers-Figures Handicaps.      Thank you again to Glenda Wetherbee Chairman, Nancy Sterling Co-Chair of Potatoe Bake Fund Raiser. Terry Debackere, Chairman of Good Neighbors' Lunch Fund Raiser.   We had others who sat on these two committees and many others who helped with preparation, clean up and supplying a great environment to work with.


We ended up with 40 Golfers of which I believe we had 9 new golfers this year.  Hope you all return next season!  

May God Bless you all and keep us all safe.    


Thank you to Tracy Wagner and Beth Parish for all of our help this year, enjoyed working with you both.

I wanted to send a copy of mom's obit to be published.

Kady Pohlmeyer 956-642-6003


Barbara Ann Carlson

Barbara Ann Carlson of Harlingen passed away quietly while surrounded by family on March 16, 2024 at the age of 84.


Barb was born the middle of three girls on June 20, 1939 in Peoria, Illinois to the late Hank Zipper and Katherine (McCann) Zipper. She spent most of her childhood playing with her two sisters Carolyn (Wally) Anderson and Bonnielyn (Bill) Witt. She loved playing jacks, kick-the-can, and even playing pranks while growing up. She also enjoyed playing baseball with the team of boys that her dad coached when they were short players.


After graduating from Peoria High School in 1957, she worked as a secretary, and then accountant at Hiram Walkers.


Barb met Carlton Toby Carlson in June 1958. They were married on Oct. 10, 1959, and honeymooned in New Orleans. The couple then moved to Evanston, Illinois where they had two children: Eric and Kady. In 1966, they moved to Toronto, Canada for two years, where Barb developed a love of the team sport curling. After that, the family settled in Minnetonka, Minnesota.


Barb and Toby spent many weekends in northern Minnesota on Howard Lake, first at Moore Springs Resort, and then at her parent’s cabin. There were many fond memories of playing cards, fishing, turtle hunting, and time with her sisters and family.


Before retirement, Barb worked as a head bookkeeper for Kraemer’s Hardware, and then at Opportunity Partners, a non-profit foundation. She was also a grief mentor for people who lost family members.


Barb loved traveling, which included cruises and trips to Africa, Alaska, Russia, and Asia, amongst many other places.


After Toby passed away in 2001, religion and faith became an important part of her life and she was confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Hopkins, Minnesota in Nov. 2001.


Barb moved to Harlingen in 2011, where she met the second love of her life, Jack Scott. They continued traveling –– going to China to see the Terra Cotta Soldiers, the Panama Canal, and their regular camping trips on South Padre Island.


Barb was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Toby, and brother-in-law Wally. The memory of Barb will be cherished by her friend Jack, son Eric (Janet) Carlson, daughter Kady (Terry) Pohlmeyer, grandchildren Bryce (Jenn), Shane (Stephanie), Paige (DJ), Tara (Alex), and Corey, and two great-grandchildren Isla and Quinn.


A memorial service will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Harlingen on Saturday, March 23, at 11 a.m., with graveside services at Glendale Cemetery in Washington, Illinois at a later date. 


Instead of flowers, please donate to St. Paul Lutheran Church Backpacks of Love, an organization Barb regularly supported, at, noting “Give to Backpack Ministry”.
