SEPO E-News E-Mail Guidelines

Revision 7 - Updated 11-20-2021

Sending SEPO Community E-Mails is a ‘public service’ to Sunshine residents performed by a SEPO Resident Volunteer. Guidelines have been developed to help everyone know what WILL and what WILL NOT be sent to Sunshine Residents and Renters who are on the SEPO E-News E-Mail Distribution List.

If you, or any other Resident or Renter you know, are not on the distribution list but would like to be, please send the request to be added to this list to Include Name, E-Mail address and Sunshine address.

Thank you for your cooperation with this attempt to provide structure to the information that will be distributed via SEPO e-mails. I do believe they are an excellent form of communication to the Sunshine Community.


Please contact me with questions, etc.
