  • Sunshine Facebook | Sunshine Estates

    Activities: SEPO-Sanctioned Facebook Page Read below about the use of the new SEPO-Sanctioned Facebook page. Click on the Facebook ICON to be taken to the page. Sent 2023-03-22 : SEPO-Sanctioned Facebook Page is now up and running - At the request of SEPO Board President, Share Nelson, I have created a SEPO-sanctioned Facebook (FB) page for the Sunshine community. ​ Sunshine Country Club Estates Official Group It is 'private' to residents. In order to post, you will need to join the "Sunshine Country Club Estates Official Group" or be invited to join by one of the current members. ​ Any resident and all Sunshine Clubs/Groups can post announcements themselves or find a friend to help post them. I am also available to help anyone who has issues with or questions about posting. ​ There are already lots of super posts out there. ​ - Pam Adams Sent 2023-03-22: SEPO Communications & the New SEPO-sanctioned FB Group - I want to personally thank Pam Adams for getting the SEPO-sanctioned Facebook (FB) Group up and running (so I didn't have to worry about doing it - HA) !!! And she is right, there are lots of great pictures and information out there already. Hopefully, this will provide a spot for those of you who are wanting to get the word out about things outside of the Sunshine borders, that are non-SEPO Club/Group related. A couple of things; although I would be overjoyed if this FB page would mean I no longer needed to do SEPO Communications, that is not the case. All residents are not on Facebook and those who aren't, won't see these postings. Non-Sunshine residents won't be able to join the new FB group and, therefore, they won't see the postings either. The original intent of the Sunshine website, above and beyond keeping residents informed, was to entice potential buyers to come check us out and possibly buy in Sunshine. If you want the entire current community to be kept up-to-date about what's going on here in Sunshine AND also entice potential buyers, you will need to continue utilizing the SEPO Communication processes - emails, website updates and (during the winter seasons) the newsletter. Thanks again to Pam Adams. - Beth Parrish, SEPO Communications, 314-960-6710 Back to Top

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused. Beth Parrish, SEPO E-Mail E-News Admin E-Mail: sepoenews@gmail.com 314-960-6710 ************************************ The SEPO Board met earlier today (May 20, 2021 @ 1:30 PM via Google Meet). One of the agenda items was as follows: Determine next steps (Review/Change or Not/Approve) SEPO Covid-19 Restrictions with discussion and potential Action. During the discussion of this item, each board member voiced his/her opinion on what the next step should be pertaining to the current SEPO Covid-19 restrictions. At the end of this discussion, a motion was made and seconded to ‘remove’ all current SEPO Covid-19 restrictions. A formal vote was taken with the following results – YES from Beth Parrish, Larry Keller, Lenore Combs and Jean Burgoine & NO from Mecca Henry and Lyn Swonger. Since the vote was not a tie, President Tony Tramel did not vote. The Board would like to thank everyone for being diligent over the past 16 or so months in helping keep our Sunshine Estates residents safe. Although, Sunshine is now starting our normal activities, we encourage you using your personal decision regarding mask use / attendance at meetings and other activities. We believe each person has to be responsible for themselves. Please do what YOU feel comfortable doing. It is my feeling that SEPO owners are highly vaccinated and have been so for more than a couple of months, which I believe, was a primary reason for the positive vote to remove our restrictions. Prior posted Covid-19 restrictions which have been posted on SEPO buildings and the Sunshine Web site will be removed. The May 27th Summer Potluck , chaired by Marian Young, will be the first activity that will not have SEPO Covid-19 restrictions. Refer to the Sunshine Web site Activity Summary page for additional scheduled Activities. It appears this is the beginning of the end for Covid-19 for SEPO, and hopefully the State and the Nation.

But it also says "Need Chairpersons". These dates were requested last March by me, only in order for this event to get on the calendar. We haven't had it for the last two seasons, due to Covid-19. So, I know there are residents who really want to see it started up again. Although that seems like a long time off, if this event is going to take place this season, now is the time for residents to step and volunteer to chair it. If you have never chaired such an event there are several residents who have chaired this and other similar golf events. I'm assuming they would be more than happy to get you going and answer any questions you may have. I believe a committee of about six to eight people can put this on. If you are interested, please contact me and I will assist you with getting the paperwork going for this. I do not play golf, but I know the people who have played in this tournament in the past have enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for your consideration.

You are no doubt just as bored as I am today - all locked in and tired of daytime TV. If you haven't been to a Neighborhood Watch meeting before, this afternoon (Monday 2/15) at 3:00 is your chance to do something different. Neighborhood Watch is that group of volunteers that patrol our streets in the evenings, offer Operation ID services and also operate the security cameras. Catalytic converter thefts are going wild in St. Paul MN these days and we can probably expect them to become popular here in Harlingen again. It was the IR perimeter monitoring of the storage lot that seems to have taught the locals to leave us alone, but memories are short. Neighborhood watch does a lot for us. This afternoon you may as well set in on the virtual meeting and learn a lot more about NW. About 5 or 10 minutes before 3:00, click on the following: https://meet.google.com/tgt-wrgz-jcf and ask to be admittted to the meeting. Once admitted it might be good for you to mute your microphone unless you want everyone to hear what is happening in your house. The agenda can be found HERE .

It will be with the Original Dolphins Watch line who have been providing winter Texans with fun and informative tours for many years. You will see the giant oil platforms on the Gulf of Mexico and a wide assortment of international ships that ply their trade through the Port of Brownsville, The Port of Brownsville is the home to five of the nations largest ship-wrecking companies...who knew there was such a thing? It is also possible you will see native dolphins, local and migratory birds and learn about the shrimping industry. The boat will hold 40 people (actually the boat will hold 75 people, but because of Covid-19, I am limiting it to 40 people only). Beer, wine and shrimp will be offered. You can bring your own cooler. Afterwards, we might want to visit one of the restaurants on the island for dinner and/or drinks. The cost (if we have forty people) is $35.00 which incudes the beer, wine and shrimp. You can call or message me at 847 452-7804, or email at sswidryk007@aaol.com if you are interested.

Carnival is another common name for Pre-Lenten festivities because in Latin carnelevarium means to take away or remove meat. Dear Friends, Mark your calendars for Tuesday - 16 February 2021. Our Women’s Club is the sponsor and Eileen Anderson and Marian Young are points of contact. Looking for lots of volunteers and great ideas – contact Eileen at 507 317 0296 and or Marian 719 468 4556. Eileen and Marian can plan a meeting. * This is an initial announcement for this Mardi Gras event – so start forming your ideas and Krewes - do your colors. Prizes will be awarded. Here’s a little history to get you in the spirit. Mardi Gras, is traditionally celebrated as “Fat Tuesday” before Ash Wednesday and is the start of Lent. It is a tradition dating back thousands of years to pagan spring and fertility rights. The first Mardi Gras took place in March 1699 when French explorers landed in New Orleans where they held a small celebration dubbed Port du Mardi Gras. In the decades that followed, New Orleans and other French settlements began marking the holiday with street parties, masked balls and lavish dinners. In 1857, a secret society of New Orleans businessmen called the Mistick Krewe of Comus organized a torch-lit Mardi Gras procession with marching bands and rolling floats setting the tone for future public celebrations. These iconic colors have meaning – Purple is for justice, gold is power and green stands for faith. Since then, these krewes have remained a fixture of the Carnival scene including throwing beads, wearing masks, decorating floats and eating King cake. Let’s add Sunshine to the map!

All other activities/meetings (i.e., Other Golf events, Quilters, Line Dancing, Cards, etc). “PROCESS” for getting an Activity/Meeting request approved. Requestor: Obtain Activity/Meeting Room Request Form from: SEPO office or Document Slot in the Library or Sunshine Web site HERE Submit completed request form to the SEPO Office Mgr as per the priority/time requirements defined in “Item 2” above. If the request form is not ‘required’ in 2.a. above, it should be submitted at least three (3) days prior to the event, if possible. The form should contain as much information as the submitter is aware of at the time of requested approval. As additional details are finalized, such as the actual time of the event versus prep and cleanup times, this new/revised information needs to be supplied to the Office by submitting a revised request form, if possible. This will ensure event conflicts don’t occur and both the SEPO Calendar and the Sunshine website are updated/accurate. When an activity/meeting is cancelled please inform the SEPO Office. For example, a request had been submitted to play a particular card game for a three month period and the group decides to cancel this activity after two months. A revised activity request form will trigger this change to be reflected in both the SEPO Calendar and the website and let residents know the location is now available for others to use. SEPO Board: The Board formally approves/rejects requests submitted for review at the March Board Mtg each year (see 2.a. and 2.b. above). Again, any requests submitted for review at the March Board Mtg need to be in the SEPO Office before March 1 to give the Board time to review them prior to the March mtg. SEPO Office Mgr: March Board meeting – Ensures all requests to be reviewed at the March Board meeting are forwarded to the Board as soon as received in the office. After March Board meeting – Reviews all other requests as they are submitted to ensure the date(s) and time(s) requested do not conflict with anything already approved and scheduled. For these requests the SEPO Office may contact the Board Secretary and/or the SEPO Communications Manager to get questions answered, issues resolved and/or obtain advice concerning approval/rejection of the request. Approves/rejects and dates the request. Notifies the Requestor of ‘Acceptance’ or ‘Rejection’ (and reason why, if rejected) of the request. (The requestor should be provided with and file a copy of his/her accepted/rejected Request Form for his/her records​.) Files the Request Form in the SEPO Office (either electronically or physically). Records/Updates the activity/meeting in the SEPO Office calendar. Ensures the Sunshine Website Manager receives the information to post on the website. “Changes” after Approval. ​ As stated previously, the requestor should provide as much information as possible on the original request form. The form should include days/times for all three of the following, as applicable: activity preparation (decorating, cooking etc) the activity itself (i.e., dinner and dance) cleanup (taking down decorations, rearranging tables/chairs etc) NOTE: Please avoid simply requesting to reserve the area(s) where you are holding your event for the ‘entire day’ – unless you will truly be needing the area(s) from 12 AM to 11:59 PM. As additional details, days/times etc, become final or are changed , please submit a ‘revised’ Activity Request Form and note on this revision the date of the original request, which was previously returned to you when it was approved. “Timeframes” on Activity Requests. When you are requesting an area for a recurring activity i.e., Cards and you don’t know what timeframe you will be needing the area for, you may leave the end day/time blank or say ‘unknown’. This will be entered into the SEPO Calendar and the website with no end date. However, when/if you do stop holding the event, you need to complete a revised form so that the office knows your reserved area is now open for others to reserve. This will trigger the office to inform the website manager and will consequently keep the community informed of which activities are occurring at any time. There has been confusion in the past about whether an activity that only occurs during the winter season, i.e., a SEPO Club meeting or a particular card game, needs an Activity Request form completed for each winter season. The answer is ‘yes’. Do Not Assume your ‘winter only’ activity will remain in the SEPO Calendar and on the website during upcoming winter seasons without being approved again. There may be other circumstances not addressed in this process about when you do or don’t need to submit an Activity Request form. When in doubt, submit a form to the office. If there are questions concerning any of the above, please contact the SEPO Office.

Thanks for your support. Many residents lined up along the Parade Route showing their support, cheering us on, tossing candy and enjoying this seasonal festivity with family, friends and neighbors. A special Thanks goes to all the entrants as their time and talent plus endurance led to this successful event. Eleven challengers vied for the prestigious Women's Club award for "best decorated". Winners were 1st Place: Terry and Rich Debackere - 2nd Place: Heidi Dill and 3rd: Kathy Walker and granddaughter Jessica. Cathy Richmond with fearless Gizmo and Share Nelson with mischievous Maggie contributed to this pet-friendly part of the entourage and the McGruffmobile was proud to have his crime fighting four legged buddies as backup. Larry Lentz and his wife Linda, (son of Alice Montgomery), new resident, new volunteer for NW Patrols and recent Citizens Police Academy graduate drove his golf cart advertising our CERT Team. Lisa (new resident) was pressed into action 30 minutes before showtime as our Firefighters were battling a field fire until the last minute - possibly not able to show up to carry Santa. Several of Santa's helpers helped dismantle her beautiful Thunderbird convertible so Santa could be chauffeured. (The reindeer had a previous engagement). Sgt. Jaime Palafox volunteered to be our lead HPD Police Car supporting efforts of our Neighborhood Watch. Bob Saylor drove the NW Golf Cart (the McGruffmobile is named after the famous crime-fighting dog Mr. McGruff). So the phrase "It takes a Village,,,," puts it mildly when you think of how many Sunshine folks were involved and our neighbors - don't forget the Choraliers, the Christmas Tree Lighting, Hot Cocoa and cookies and Santa photo op.

  • 2021-08 E-Mails | Sunshine Estates

    S EPO Community E-Mails: August 2021 Sent 2021-08-31: UPDATE: Resaca Water - We now have Resaca water and are no longer limiting residence use of the Resaca. SEPO Board Sent 2021-08-29: Blackie has come back - We are in luck. An old friend has decided to come back and visit our neighborhood. Blackie has been seen a few times around the neighborhood recently and we haven't seen blackie for some time. That's really unfortunate because blackie is perhaps one of the best friends in nature that we can have. Blackie is officially known as a Texas indigo snake. Now you are probably repulsed by the idea of a snake being our best friend. But do not fear but rarher respect blackie because blackie eats other snakes, poisonous ones as well as a wide variety of other small creatures. Blackie is neither poisonous nor aggressive but really a very placid creature. Blackie is the subject of a Texas Parks and Wildlife brochure from which I will share some excerpts with you. _____ https://tpwmagazine.com/archive/2015/mar/scout5_wildthing_indigo/ "Indigo snakes are big snakes. Most adult indigo snakes grow to between 5½ and 6½ feet in length. The longest recorded indigo snake was nearly 8½ feet long. Texas indigo snakes are diurnal predators, meaning they are active during the day. They will eat almost any vertebrate animal they can subdue with their strong jaws, including toads, frogs, salamanders, lizards, turtles, birds, small mammals and other snakes. One specimen was found with three mice, two Mexican burrowing toads and two juvenile snapping turtles in its stomach. They are also known to eat rattlesnakes and copperheads , which can be three to four times heavier than an indigo snake. “It’s a gorgeous snake, and it’s not aggressive,” says Andy Gluesenkamp, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department herpetologist. “If you’re nice to the snake, it’ll give you a chance to look at it.” Texas indigo snakes are listed by the state as a threatened species, and because of its protected status, it is illegal to harm, kill, collect or sell Texas indigo snakes. The Texas indigo snake is revered in South Texas, where many ranchers are aware of its propensity for eating predatory rattlesnakes. Ranchers have a fondness for the Texas indigo snake,” Gluesenkamp says. “It’s a true South Texan snake: charismatic, big and tough.” ____ So - since we have seen Blackie around the Estates lately, I would ask you to "just let it be" if you see it. It is your friend, even if it is a snake.

It identifies them and allows them full access to the golf course. The medallion should be highly visible and not stuffed in a golf bag pocket. Also concerning Guests from the SEPO Policies & Procedures: GUESTS: 3. …… If your in-house guest wishes to play golf you must obtain a yellow tag which must be displayed on the golf bag. The tag must be returned to the SEPO office. If an owner wishes to pay for their house golf guest they may do so by keeping track of the number of times their guest plays and pay the proper amount after the guest leaves. The medallions are free and can be obtained from the office. Your name will be put on the medallion before you exit the office. Guest medallions must be returned to the Office after they are no longer needed. Players on the Sunshine course without this identification may be stopped and questioned.

It became clear when several residents and Board members expressed concern. So, to play safe - patrol on Indiana only up to the cul de sac and stay on the left hand side as you head toward it and use the same side to exit. Shan was on last night and was aware. Kat, Marian, Mary and I explored possibilities and we are in agreement with Tony Tramel (Board President) and Lyn Swonger (Board Golf Course Director) - SAFETY FIRST.

SEPO Board ******************** ​ Sent: Thursday, February 17, 2022,12:07 PM Subject: ANNOUNCEMENT: 2022 SEPO Board ​ We wanted to make a short announcement concerning the results of the SEPO 2022 Board election. Randy Davis, David Fleiner and Mark Owen were elected to fill the three open positions. Beth Parrish, Larry Keller, Jean Burgoine and Lenore Combs remain on the Board for their second year. Mark Owen was on the 2021 Board and was re-elected to the 2022 Board. We want to give a huge 'thank you for all you did' to Lyn Swonger and Tony Tramel, who are exiting their Board positions. They both made great improvements within our community during their tenure on the Board. The 2022 Board did hold their first 'required' meeting on Feb 15 in order to elect/assign Director positions. However, partly due to not all Board members being present at that meeting, we were not able to finalize those assignments. We will inform the community as soon as this has been accomplished.
