Also, a note from another resident suggested we re-cover some of the Practice Tee area concerning the "pipes", so there is a second layer of protection from balls coming back at you. We must have pretty strong golfers - maybe they will step up to help me out. I will need some specific detail on what to buy and the measurements and then volunteers to put it up, etc. Thanking all in advance for your swift response. - Lenore J Combs 956 245 1276 Director - Storage Lot ​ Sent 2022-09-24: CORRECTION - PLEASE REVIEW: SEPO 'Month at a Glance' Activities Calendar - ***** Please reply to this e-mail address. ***** Although my test e-mail looked fine, there appears to be some issues with attaching the calendar pages to the e-mail. So I have deleted them. Here is the direct link to all six months of the calendar. The following is from the 09-12-22 Board Meeting minutes. ********** Board Secretary, Beth Parrish, has revised the Activity/Meeting Request Process Document HERE slightly (and not the Request Form). The process changed after the March 2022 Board meeting specific to the SEPO Office being the first point of contact for all requests. The Board Secretary is consulted only if Valerie has a question. Beth reminded everyone that if you have activities and meetings coming up that you have not already submitted a request (and received approval for) you need to get those submitted now. Also, some of the previously approved requests are expiring and may need to be resubmitted. If you are unsure if you need to submit something, please contact the office. If you clicked on the "activity-mtg-request" link above you will have seen at the bottom of that page the 'Fun Times' icon. When you click on that icon you will see the SEPO Office calendar for this coming Winter Season (10-01-22 thru 03-31-23) in its new format; ‘month at a glance’ requested by some residents. Look in the top right-hand corner to see which month you are viewing. ​ I need two things from everyone. Resident input concerning the new format. Please verify the accuracy of the calendar events and submit corrections to the SEPO Office. Thanks in advance for helping out with this.

A quick review of virtual signups: There is a flowery lock box in the library. It will have envelopes on it that are stamped so you can fill in your name and submit either cash or a check made out to SCCE Womens Club. A list will be compiled with names of paid residents and as you enter your name will be checked off at the door. There is a limit of 160 tickets and no tickets will be sold at the door.

If you are new to creating a Sunshine Newsletter article, there are four years of examples on the Sunshine Web site HERE . Probably steer clear of the 'covid' timeframe, as those articles were very sparse. If you still need some assistance, look who composed previous articles for the area you are wanting to report about and reach out to them. Hope this helps.

Please return to Lost and Found (in the Library) or to Mark Owen at 4224 N. Minnesota. Lost 3 Days ago... - Mark Owen ​ Sent 2022-09-15: Policies & Procedures: Updates from September 12, 2022 Board Mtg - At the September 12, 2022 Regular Board Meeting, the Board approved two updates to the SEPO Policies & Procedures . A section entitled "Resale Certificates" was added on page 1 to comply with Texas Property Code 207: RESALE CERTIFICATES To comply with Texas Property Code, Sec. 207, any owner selling his residence must provide a resale certificate to the buyer prior to closing. This must be done whether by sale through a realtor, or a private sale between individuals. This will be provided by SEPO not later than ten days following a request for same at a cost of $250. The resale certificate will provide, in part, the following information: Financial condition of the association, any unpaid amounts due the association on the property, any known violations of noncompliance for the property of the rules (Covenants) of the association. The "Property and Yard Maintenance" section, Item 1, was updated concerning the 'attempt' to make an initial phone call: PROPERTY AND YARD MAINTENANCE It is the responsibility of all property owners to see that their property and yard are maintained, mowed, and trimmed AT ALL TIMES. If it becomes necessary for SEPO to care for an owner’s property at any time, a service fee of $50.00 for mowing and $75.00 for weed removal of non-grass yards will be made each time such services are performed. There will be a service fee of $75.00 per incident to pick up fruit that has fallen from your fruit tree onto any Owner’s property or the street. Initially the SEPO Office must attempt to notify the owner via phone call. This will immediately be followed by a written notice from the SEPO Office that references the attempted or actual phone call and states the issue that needs to be addressed. This written notice may be handed to the owner of the premises or sent via e-mail or regular mail, or by posting the notice on or near the front door of the resident’s home at the property location. Owners will be given seven (7) days from the date of said phone call (attempted or completed) and the written notice to bring the premises into compliance before the SEPO services are scheduled. All owners must furnish SEPO office personnel with up-to-date information as to who is responsible for their property during the owner’s absence. Additional details pertaining to these updates will be in the written minutes from this meeting, which are currently in process. As stated in an earlier e-mail the video for that meeting is available now: https://1drv.ms/v/s!ArA0fRIwdohilftpzOo4KPA2D4K2tw?e=vrKghL The updated P&P document is now on the Sunshine Web site HERE and can also be accessed directly from HERE . SEPO Board Sent 2022-09-14: Letter to SEPO residents - First off from Beth Parrish (SEPO Communications Mgr): Please note the below was actually supposed to be sent on Sep 7, but it fell into an email black hole. Thanks for resending it to me Larry. From Larry Keller (SEPO Board Director): update on Texas ave - The front entrance area continues to look fantastic. Lalo, the Garden Club and many other volunteers have made the Texas ave area look better than ever. When you see Lalo be sure to thank him for his dedication to our community. Lalo will be pressure washing the concrete block wall on the south side of Texas ave very soon. The drainage ditch behind Minnesota has been cleaned out from Texas ave to the northern boundary by the storage lots. This was achieved with help from Alan Moore district 5 mgr, Joy Cossins, Caroline Cochran, Lassie Dahlstrom, Randy Davis and our SEPO staff. We have begun to trim some trees along the Minnessota ave tree line to avoid contact with the power lines. The front gate mechanism has had nearly all of the internal components replaced. A new lock was also installed to avoid tampering. We have had success the last few weeks with the gate operating properly. Continued issues with the gate will require we purchase a new opener. Additionally, the front gate cameras are fully operational. Many thanks to Valerie (SEPO Office Mgr) for her help on this issue. Sent 2022-09-14: Sunshine Meetings schedule - As we are rapidly approaching the 2022-2023 Winter season at Sunshine, I wanted to remind and/or let everyone know that the schedule of meetings, that I know of , are posted on the Web site here . In particular to those of you who are in charge of the various Sunshine Clubs etc, please review the meeting information carefully and send any updates to me at the contact info below.

Invitation to non-residents/non-renters to participate in the Club must be approved by SEPO. If approved, residents/renters always have priority pertaining to club activities. This approval request must be made by completing a SEPO Suggestion/Complaint/Idea form available in the SEPO Office or on the Sunshine Web site (https://www.sunshinecountryclub.com/suggestion-complaint-idea ). Immediate family of Residents/Renters are always welcome. Invitations to non-residents/non-renters must be made by a resident/renter to an individual. There can be no ‘blanket’ invitations from Club members, i.e., hanging a poster at an RV park to join the club or putting an invitation in a newspaper. Any non-resident/non-renters, other than immediate family, must be 55+. Guest speakers are not required to be approved by SEPO. Any money collected from resident/renter club members can only be used to cover the cost of equipment and supplies used during club activities. No profit can be made by anyone. Scheduling of “fundraising” events that will take place within Sunshine Country Club Estates for the purchase of the club’s equipment or supplies must be approved in advance by SEPO. The request process is defined on the Sunshine Web site (https://www.sunshinecountryclub.com/activity-mtg-request ). The request form is available there and in the SEPO Office. Any bank accounts established for the club cannot be in the name of Sunshine Estates Property Owners, Inc. and must be in non-interest-bearing accounts. PETS Pets are allowed as long as they do not become a nuisance. All pets must be kept on leash when not on the owner’s property. At no time can pets be allowed to enter other people’s property without their permission. Owners are responsible for cleanup or damage caused by their pets. Never place cleanup (poop) bags into another resident’s garbage can without permission. Pets are never allowed on the golf course, in any SEPO buildings or in the Pool/Pavilion area. Pets that are fostered (given temporary shelter and not owned) shall be counted as part of the two pets allowed at any one time (Section 6.10 of the Covenants). Owners in violation of any of these provisions may be subject to fine or penalty. PROPERTY AND YARD MAINTENANCE It is the responsibility of all property owners to see that their property and yard are maintained, mowed, and trimmed AT ALL TIMES. If it becomes necessary for SEPO to care for an owner’s property at any time, a service fee of $50.00 for mowing and $75.00 for weed removal of non-grass yards will be made each time such services are performed. There will be a service fee of $75.00 per incident to pick up fruit that has fallen from your fruit tree onto any Owner’s property or the street. Initially the SEPO Office must attempt to notify the owner via phone call. This will immediately be followed by a written notice from the SEPO Office that references the attempted or actual phone call and states the issue that needs to be addressed. This written notice may be handed to the owner of the premises or sent via e-mail or regular mail, or by posting the notice on or near the front door of the resident’s home at the property location. Owners will be given seven (7) days from the date of said phone call (attempted or completed) and the written notice to bring the premises into compliance before the SEPO services are scheduled. All owners must furnish SEPO office personnel with up-to-date information as to who is responsible for their property during the owner’s absence. It is a violation of SEPO rules to throw vegetation or refuse into the streets. All owners desiring to extend their ground care to walkways, utilizing any type of trim enhancement, must have permission from the SEPO Board. The property owners will be asked to sign a release stating if it becomes necessary to use this area with heavy equipment and the two feet of property they are maintaining becomes damaged, they are aware this is SEPO property and there will be no recourse for any damage that may have occurred. No placement of any type of enhancement on the golf course area (flagpole, bird house, tree, shrub, flower, etc.) is allowed without approval of the SEPO Board. In order to control water pressure for the golf course, owners are prohibited from watering their own yards using Resaca water between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Noncompliance may result in the capping off of the Resaca water to their property. ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL Owners wishing to make additions or any outside improvements/changes to their property must complete a proposal form obtained at the SEPO office to receive permission from the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) and may not commence work until the necessary ACC approval has been obtained. ​ Owners who proceed without ACC approval are subject to imposition of the “Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Non-compliance to Covenants Fee Schedule” and legal intervention as identified in these SEPO Rules, (adopted August 31, 2021). See document at this link: (https://www.sunshinecountryclub.com/sepo-rulesregs-fees ) In the event of noncompliance with the foregoing paragraphs the Architectural Control Committee shall report such conduct to the SEPO Board who will in turn issue a STOP WORK ORDER until approval is obtained from the ACC. In the event work continues, then the SEPO Board may impose FEEs in the amounts defined in the Non-compliance to Covenants Fee Schedule (linked to above). If the fees are not collected, a lien may be placed upon the owner’s property. You may not expand upon or change that work which has been approved without submitting a new plan. ​ As to fences, Exhibit B of the Covenants states in paragraph 16, “no fence, wall or hedge shall be built or maintained nearer than ten (10) feet to the front curb line of any lot, or side curb line on corner lots. An exception shall be retaining walls of not over twelve inches above the ground.” Paragraph l7 states, “No fence, wall or hedge or shrub planting which obstructs sight lines shall be placed or permitted on corner lots.” Paragraph 18 states, “All fences shall be approved prior to construction.” Paragraph 19 states, in part, “No lot owner shall impair any easement. No fences, walls or structural improvements shall be built or constructed on any easement.” For clarification, our lots have a ten foot utility easement from the lot line across the front and a five foot utility easement from the lot line across the back. That in itself declares no fences will be allowed within the five foot rear lot easement adjacent to the golf course. Owners are allowed to erect a barrier for golf ball protection. They must be approved by the ACC. Protective measures for golf balls can include a type of netting or other material but cannot be intrusive on neighbors. All Fences and Barriers must be approved by The ACC prior to installation. CONSTRUCTION The disposal of any residue from a resident/homeowner’s construction site is the responsibility of the property owner. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the site in an orderly and safe condition. Any building material (nail, screw, etc.) originating from the site that might puncture a tire found on an adjacent street or driveway and turned in to the SEPO Office shall result in a fine of $10 per item. The fine shall be added to the homeowner’s monthly or annually assessed association fees. GOLF COURSE Sunshine Country Club Estates’ guests (not qualifying as immediate family members of owners) as well as ENCORE residents are required to pay green fees before starting play. ENCORE residents must wear their RV name badges and display the green fee tag on their golf bag. All golfers are required to have their own clubs and bag or other appropriate carrier. Foursomes are suggested when the golf course is busy except during league play. More than five should never play at one time. Play is required to start at the number one tee at all times from October 1st through April 30th. However, persons may join players already in progress as long as it is agreeable to those players and does not make more than a foursome. Use of a tee is required at all times when teeing off. Practice is not allowed on any part of the golf course except on the putting green by number one tee box. Keep riding carts on cart paths when teeing off and 20 feet from greens when possible and practical. Replace divots on tee boxes and fairways. Repair ball marks on greens. Do not trespass upon owner’s property at any time except to retrieve straying golf balls. Never hit the ball out of an owner’s yard. Do not rake for balls during active play. Everyone is required to wear appropriate clothing including shirts at all times on the golf course. No bicycles or motor scooters are allowed on the golf course. Anyone wishing to use a riding golf cart to play golf may do so by paying an annual Golf Course Improvement fee. A sticker must be purchased each year and placed in plain view on the windshield of the cart. All Golf Course Improvement Fees collected shall be used for the construction/continued maintenance and repair of: a. future/existing concrete golf cart pathways/trails, b. water features on the golf course, including, but not limited to, masonry walls of the golf course ponds and aeration pumps/fountains, c. water irrigation and pond lighting improvements. All of these improvements shall be located within the limits of the golf course. When the golf course is closed because of excessive rain accumulation or for maintenance procedures, signs will be posted in front of the Office and at the number one tee box. At times when the course does remain open there may be posted restrictions on the use of riding golf carts even though walkers are permitted. If in question, you should check the office area before proceeding to the first hole to play in event you are not starting on the number one tee in league play. The golf green fee for a temporary guest as defined under GUESTS is $2.00 to play in scramble for nine holes, which includes tournaments and guest days. The green fee for a temporary guest to play nine holes is $5.00. These fees are paid at the office. The golf green fee for an incidental guest as defined under GUESTS is $10.00 for nine holes and $15.00 for eighteen holes. This same fee will apply to residents of ENCORE. You may only enter or exit the golf course by means of a cart path, never from your backyard or a neighbor’s back yard. There are cart paths leading from each street to enter and exit the course. The course is for playing golf. It is not a shortcut from one street to another. The SEPO golf course is restricted during Men’s and Women’s Golf League play as follow During the months from April 1 thru September 30 the SEPO golf course is restricted for: Tuesday Men’s League play from 8:30 to 10 AM. Wednesday Women’s League play from 8:30 to 10 AM. During the months from October 1 through March 31 the SEPO golf course is restricted for: Tuesday Men’s League play from 8 AM to Noon. Wednesday Women’s League play from 9 AM to Noon. If you are not participating in the Men’s or Women’s scheduled Golf League play, you must wait until the entire League play is completed before gathering to play. Golfers who wish to play ‘after League play has completed’ are requested not to stage at Hole #1, as this has shown to prevent League players from using the cart paths to advance on the course. Non-League golfers should gather on Michigan Avenue, away from the cart path, in anticipation of League play completion, in order to reduce congestion on Hole #1 tee box. “Feeding ducks on the golf course is prohibited.” Per the TX Parks & Wildlife, it is an offense to feed or offer any wildlife or exotic wildlife unsecured in a manner that makes food available to wildlife or exotic wildlife unless specifically authorized. The feeding of birds can be permitted using feeders that contain food in a specific area. TENNIS COURT, PICKLEBALL AND SHUFFLEBOARD Treatment of courts: Proper footwear is to be worn at all times. Shoes with abrasive soles of any kind and shoes with black soles should not be worn on the courts. Shufflers should walk on the concrete area between the courts when changing ends. Do not use the Courts as a short cut. The green surface is a very specialized cover and may be damaged just by walking. Any activity other than tennis and pickle ball on the tennis court and shuffling on the shuffleboard lanes is forbidden. POOL AND HOT TUB AREA Shower before using pools to remove any lotions. Soap is not allowed in the showers. Diving into the pool is not allowed. Running in the pool area is not allowed. If your guests are young children, keep them under control and have an adult supervising them. Throwing any object into the pool or pool area is not allowed. No bicycles or skates are allowed in the pool area. Anyone displaying rowdy behavior may be asked to leave by any resident owner. RULES AND PROCEDURES POSTED ON THE LARGE SIGN IN THE POOL AREA ARE ENFORCED AT ALL TIMES. LOUNGE AND RETZLAFF HALL Reservations for use of either space will be made through the SEPO office. No fee will be charged for private parties if no supplies are used. However, you are responsible for turning off lights, fans, air conditioning and P/A systems so make arrangements for getting help. Only 206 seated people are allowed in Retzlaff Hall at one time in compliance with the Harlingen Fire Code. A limited number of older brown tables are available for loan. No white tables may be borrowed. The white chairs may be borrowed at a cost of $1.00 each and must be signed out from the office in advance and returned in 48 hours.

STORAGE AREA The storage area is a gated area with the gate operated by the same opener that will open the front entrance gate.

Harlingen will not pick up any other items such as appliances and pieces of building material. Do not pull brush across the streets or across the marked areas for RV parking. All RVs, trailers and storage shed spaces must be assigned from the office. Prices vary according to the lot size. All lots are rented on an annual basis and the rent on your designated lot including those with storage buildings must be paid in full by January 20th each year. Inquire in the office regarding space availability and prices. In the event a certain section of the Storage Area becomes filled and there are residents that desire to rent a space in that area, then a list will commence for the opportunity to rent the first available space. Any resident desiring to rent a space in an area that is currently filled must go to the SEPO office and register. In the event a space becomes available the first person whose name is on that list will be notified and given the opportunity to rent the space. The SEPO office must receive rental for the space within fifteen (15) days of notification. If he declines or fails to pay rent when due, the SEPO office will call upon the next name on the list. Some of the materials and properties stored within the SEPO Storage Lot shed area, which is located north of W Iowa, Ave are sand for our golf course bunkers, rocks, lumber used to create forms for our golf cart pathways and other stone and brick materials. These items are all SEPO property used by the Board Director in charge of the golf course to operate and maintain our Par 3 nine-hole golf course. These materials located here are not available for use by SEPO residents at their home. They are owned by SEPO and should not be removed. STORAGE AREA BUILDINGS All storage area buildings and location thereof must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee.

SMOKING REGULATIONS All of the buildings of the Common Area are declared to be smoke free as well as the area contained within the walls, gates and fences surrounding the Pool and Pavilion . Smoking will be allowed on the Golf Course but no cigarette butts may be discarded on the grounds. Consideration should be given to nonsmokers if riding in the same golf cart. Extinguished cigarette butts may be placed in the cup holders used for broken tees. ​ POLICY ON NEPOTISM SEPO shall not employ, either part of full time, a close relative of an existing employee or member of the board of directors. Close relative includes spouse, sibling, child, parent, grand-parent, aunt, uncle or cousin. ​ DONATIONS TO SEPO When an individual, committee or organization purchases “something” for SEPO, then ownership becomes SEPO’s unless explicitly noted otherwise. Once accepted by SEPO (either explicitly or implicitly), future maintenance, usage, replacement or removal will be SEPO’s responsibility and expense. If SEPO has ownership, the board will have sole discretion for its usage and whether replacement or removal is in SEPO interest at that time. There is no guarantee of replacement. If ownership remains with the donor, then future maintenance, usage, replacement and removal will be the owner’s responsibility and expense, however, SEPO may request its removal at any time for any reason or no reason. FISCAL POLICIES All checks should be signed by the Treasurer unless the Treasurer is unavailable. If that occurs, the next available persons, in the following sequential order shall be sought out to sign requested check(s): President, 1st VP, then 2nd VP. Invoice related payments will normally be issued only once a week on Fridays. In the case of a COD or an emergency, accommodations will be made to issue payment. Ideally this needs to be coordinated with the Treasurer. Invoices and timecards must be approved by a Board Member. Credit card charges must have a receipt. Board Members should not, under normal circumstances, use their personal funds and later seek to be reimbursed by SEPO. Only in emergencies should this occur. All backup documentation should be reviewed by the check signer prior to signing checks. DISPOSAL OF EXCESS OR RETIRED SEPO EQUIPMENT OR PROPERTY When SEPO Equipment or Property is no longer required by SEPO, in order to give everyone a fair chance to procure it, if they wish, we will use the process defined as follows: The community will be informed via Community E-mail and physical posting that an item is available for inspection at a ‘specified location’ until a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’. Anyone can send an e-mail (or handwritten bid with a legible signature) to a ‘designated person’ with the amount they are offering by a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’. The ‘designated person’ receiving the bids is not eligible to submit a bid. On a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’ the ‘designated person’ will look at the offers and announce the name of the purchaser to the community via e-mail and physical posting. Concerning any item that fails to receive a bid, the Board will vote on how to dispose of it. Back to Top

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.

Viola (Oley) Reuter ​ 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.

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. Beth Parrish SEPO Web site Admin E-Mail: sunshinecountryclubweb@gmail.com 314-960-6710 Back to Top

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 Rent : I 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.
