The Rock Painting Club will be selling rocks in the Hall on Friday, September 2nd from 12:30 to 1:30. We understand that many members are unable to drive to get rocks so we are selling them at cost. Rocks will be $1 each. Please try to bring exact change. There will be a limit of 5 rocks per person at this time so we will have enough rocks for anyone who wants them. They will be unwashed.     - Karren Amos

Hi all - I have spent several hours this week updating the Sunshine Web site in preparation of our upcoming 2022-2023 Winter Season. I would like a volunteer to work with me on making sure I'm getting all of the 'links' pointing to the correct pages. I will instruct you next week, at your convenience, in what you need to do. The actual verification process I'm asking for help with will probably take you an hour or so. Then I will make any corrections that may be needed and have you verify everything again.

Please contact me if you can help me out with this (please). I'm so close to all of the updates I may not catch some minor errors - which a fresh eye could catch.

Thanks in advance to whomever volunteers.

Sent 2022-08-21: Music at the Pool - 

The Board has received complaints about loud music being played at the pool. People have left the pool area because the music interfered with their enjoyment of the area. People go to the pool to swim, sunbathe, read, relax, etc.

If you are alone at the pool, feel free to play your music. When another person enters the area, please, be considerate and ask that person if he/she objects to your music or the volume level of your music. If it bothers him/her, please, turn your music off or use earbuds.

The reverse is true as well. If there is someone in the pool or lounging in the area, the "music lover" should request permission before turning on his/her music.

I regret having to address a situation that should simply be a matter of consideration of others' peaceful enjoyment.

Sincerely,     Jean Burgoine   Director of the pool area

Sent 2022-08-15: Sunshine Web site Updates - 
I have been periodically making updates to the Sunshine Web site over the last 2-3 weeks and will be continuing to do so more often as the 2022-2-23 winter season approaches. Sometimes I forget to check the site layout for phones and tablets to ensure they look ok - as they do on the computer I'm using to make the changes. If you see anything when viewing the site on your phone or tablet that looks 'not quite right', please let me know so I can get it fixed. Remember, the Web site is a window into our Sunshine world, so I really want to make sure it looks professional and contains accurate data. Thanks to all of you for helping me do that.

Sent 2022-08-06: ATTENTION: Overwatering of lawn during a time of drought - 

Some farmers in this area have had their water allotments cancelled due to the drought. They cannot grow crops without irrigating.

You may have noticed when you drive down our streets that there is standing water in them due to residents over-watering. Anyone who is watering their lawn should limit it to twice a week. Watering more often than that saturates the ground, and it will not be able to soak up water when it rains. This adds to our flooding situation.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Sent 2022-08-01: SEPO Activities Calendar - 

Last spring it was suggested by more than one resident that the 2-pager that has been used for years wasn't very 'friendly' to read/interpret. After some research, it was decided to start adding all of the SEPO activities, meetings etc that were requested (see request process HERE) to the SEPO G-Mail Office Calendar.

I do believe Valerie has been posting that calendar (by month) in the library all summer. Although I had never gotten around to putting it on the Web site - low and behold - both August & September are out there as of yesterday. (see this page) When you look at it for the first time you will probably say - I can't read that!! Simply enlarge the document on your computer or other smart device to view the details. I have also included the 'color legend' of where the activities take place on page one of each month's calendar.

Please review the calendar carefully to ensure the activites, etc you have previously requested are listed correctly - days, dates, times, descriptions etc. Please let the office know if something needs added, deleted or changed.

I know things are pretty much status quo for the next couple of months, so I probably won't be updating these two documents on the Web site. However, with the winter season rapidly approaching, I need to figure out a 'not so labor intensive' method of keeping the updated monthly calendars on the Web site.

Please contact me with any questions or issues you may have.
