    Age Verification Survey (55+) Age Verification Survey (55+) (as of January 7, 2022) ​ 1. Form Submission - It is the resident/renter responsibility to inform the SEPO Board of any Suggestions / Complaints / Ideas they may have by utilizing the process described below. The first step is to fill out the form available outside the SEPO Office or by printing it from HERE . Please be as detailed as possible, providing a thorough explanation and any photos and documents that help explain why you are submitting the form. If you have a suggested solution(s), please include on the form. Before submitting the form, ensure your NAME, DATE and CONTACT INFORMATION are included. (If your NAME is missing, your submission will not be addressed by the Board, and you will be notified of such.) There is a Suggestion Box outside the Office to submit your form. Please allow five to ten days to receive a response from the Board. 2. SEPO Board Review & Reply to Submitter – The Office staff checks the Suggestion Box every weekday for submissions. When the Office receives a completed and signed form it will be scanned and e-mailed as an attachment to everyone on the SEPO Board, noting the date and name of the person submitting the form in the e-mail of transmittal. The President may then consult with the Director(s) most responsible for the area(s) in question. The President will prepare a “draft response” within 1-5 days of receipt of the form and send the draft to all Board Members, requesting comments and or suggested edits to the draft, via e-mail, within a reasonable timeframe. After receipt of provided edits/comments, the President will determine the final text of the response. At that point, a direct e-mail response will be provided from the President to the submitter of the form along with a copy of the submitted form, for ease of reference. Copies of the e-mail and attachment(s) will also be provided to all Board members. In the event the submitter has not supplied an e-mail address to the Office, the reply and submitted form will be hand-delivered to the submitter. The success of this approach is predicated upon providing a timely response to the person submitting the form. 3. SEPO Board Notice to Community – To keep the Community informed of the content of submitted forms and the Board’s responses, both the forms (minus the Submitter’s name and Contact Information) and the responses will be distributed as a “SEPO Suggestion / Complaint / Idea Response Publication” by the Board. This would make the submittal and the Board response a public statement. It would also provide further notice that the Board wishes to be known as being responsive, transparent, and informative. The "Response Publication" will be: Sent to the Community via e-mail Posted on the Sunshine Web site Physically posted in the Office/Library Building (for 30 days) NOTE : The name and/or contact information of the person who submitted the form will not be published.

(First submitted are the first reviewed for approval.) Items in 2.b. above (if not already submitted). 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.

  • 2021-09 E-Mails | Sunshine Estates

    S EPO Community E-Mails: September 2021 Sent 2021-09-29: MARKETPLACE: Any Updates Needed? - In looking at the Household+ Marketplace pages on the Web site I was wondering if there are any updates that need to be made. Beth Parrish SEPO Web site Admin E-Mail: sunshinecountryclubweb@gmail.com 314-960-6710 ​ Sent 2021-09-29: SEPO Suggestion COMPLETED: Community Divided & No New Covid-19 Mandates Needed - One of our Sunshine residents submitted a SEPO Suggestion/Complaint/Idea form stating they felt the community is divided and assaulting each other and they didn't feel mandates to segregate vaccinated vs unvaccinated persons within the community were necessary. The Board is working to resolve any issues that may be causing residents to feel the community is divided and assaulting each other. If anyone is saying there are forthcoming mandates to segregate vaccinated vs unvaccinated persons within the community, that is definitely not the case. It is only rumor. The resident has been informed of this and the Board thanks the resident for their input. To see details concerning this and other residents' input click HERE . SEPO Board ​ Sent 2021-09-28: Additional Street Construction/Repairs in Sunshine - The minutes from the Sep 23, 2021 Board meeting are not yet ready for distribution. But we wanted to give everyone an update on the ongoing street construction on W Indiana Circle and the street repairs that started today on W Michigan Ave. Sorry this didn't go out sooner, but everything happened very quickly this week concerning the street repairs. At the 09-23 meeting Larry Keller had asked the Board to consider appropriating a maximum of $20,000 to remove and repair defective asphalt pavement, including but not limited to W Michigan Ave, W Iowa Ave, N Missouri St and seal coating the outer edges of W Texas Ave. He proposed we use the same company, D & J Site Construction, that has been working on W Indiana Circle as they were still onsite and we had established a good relationship with them. The Board approved Larry's request. Tony talked to the contractor and he was able to start on road repair work on W Michigan today. Owners on W Michigan are able to work around this construction by parking their vehicles next to the tennis courts. A 2-pass seal coat is scheduled for W Indiana Circle, which will require the entire street to be closed for 3 days. W Indiana Circle residents will be notified as the contractor prepares for this effort next week. If weather holds off, the Contractor may finish this repair work on W Michigan and W Indiana Circle in the next 2-3 weeks or less. Larry Keller and Tony Tramel SEPO Board ​ Sent 2021-09-28: O'Clockers Golf - Our evening (O'Clockers) golf scramble will change times starting Sunday October 3rd.

She also had her Choir group sing occasionally with the Sunday Night Sunshine Jammers and was a presence in many of Lassey's productions. And she made some great dishes for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We will miss you but remember the "Good Old Days". God Bless American and God bless you and your family.

The Newsletter Guidelines can be found here: www.sunshinecountryclub.com/sepo-newsletter-guidelines . The process for distributing the Newsletter to all of you is going to be different ongoing in order to get the info to you timely and in a format where you can see all of the effort that has been put into several of the articles sent to me by your Sunshine neighbors.And everything will be in COLOR. Of course, the Newsletter will still always be available via print in the Sunshine Library. The primary difference is that - instead of typing the Newletter in this e-mail (and you not being able to see any of the pictures contained in the Newsletter) you can find the document here: www.sunshinecountryclub.com/sepo-newsletter-2019-2020 . You will see that it is available in both WORD and PDF documents. If you have the software to open the WORD document, you will be able to click on any 'links' that are contained in the document. If you can only open the PDF document, you will need to copy and paste 'links' that are contained in the document. Also note that going back to October 2018 all published Newsletters can be found on the Sunshine Web site here: www.sunshinecountryclub.com/sepo-newsletters-overview-1 Hopefully, this change will be acceptable by all of you.

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.

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!

  • Tributes | Sunshine Estates

    In Memoriam Tributes 2021 ​ Marian Seelye (September 8, 2021) ​ It is with a sad heart to announce the passing of Marian Seelye, mother of JoAnne Anderson, and past resident of Sunshine. Marian had just come to stay with JoAnne and ultimately make a trip here. Marian laid down for a nap, JoAnne went to check later and she had gone peacefully with the Angels. Marian was special - she was the SCCE Choir Director several years ago for many years and assisted putting on many wonderful shows here, especially at the holidays. She also had her Choir group sing occasionally with the Sunday Night Sunshine Jammers and was a presence in many of Lassey's productions. And she made some great dishes for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We will miss you but remember the "Good Old Days". God Bless American and God bless you and your family. Condolences can be sent to JoAnne Anderson (daughter) 22931 185th Street Detroit Lakes, MN 56501 Lenore J Combs 956 245 1276 ​ 2020 ​ Steve Phillips (May 3, 2020) ​ Sorry for short email earlier, not thinking real clear. If I may share some more... " My husband, Steve, passed away hours ago....Saturday night. He had another pulmonary embolism, he had one about five years ago. He has not felt good for weeks, but the Dr couldnt do a MRI because of covid. (Only emergencies, and his wasnt at the time) I dont know that they would have discovered it if so, but they did last time. I followed the ambulance to the hospital, and was with him about a hour before the Drs told me there was nothing they could do, and he was gone. He passed in the ambulance, but they recovered him, only to lose him in the hospital. The Drs said he had huge blood clot in both lungs and kidney failure. I'm still in shock. (I have asked family not to travel here, as it would be devastating to cause covid virus in anyone) Steve and I were very private people, but we dearly love our family and friends...in Texas and Oklahoma, also our dear friends we have made in Harlingen. Steve was incredibly proud of being the President of the men's golf here in Sunshine Country Club Estates and his three best buddies he golfed with daily. Also, his music making pal Wade, who would attest to what an amazingly gifted musician Steve was. Steve was the smartest person I've ever known and I will cherish our ten years together. We rock and rolled many nights away. His best friends in Dallas enjoyed his musical talents long before I met him, and were like family to him (and me). I dont imagine there will be a service here, with covid virus...but in about a month I will take his ashes/remains to Dallas, hopefully, and celebrate his life with friends and family there. I'm so sorry Steve's son, Jonathan has lost his father, along with Jonathan's wife and four children, and his other family members. Also, my family will miss him dearly. Ten years can make a lifetime of memories, and it did. Please be patient if I dont answer calls or the door too quickly, I am still trying to figure out what life is now, and that will take some time. We all have losses, recovering from them is an individual journey. My # is 214 549 3993 if any questions. Tomorrow seems far away right now. ♡ Irene Phillips Back to Top

Nominating Committee: Primary Duties - After determining how many open positions are available for next year’s SEPO Board, the goal of the Nominating Committee is to identify and vet qualified candidates for these open positions. We need a committee chairperson and from two to four additional committee members. Election Committee: Primary Duties - The committee shall prepare the election ballots, stuff envelopes, man the registration tables at the Annual Shareholders Meeting and count votes cast in the ballots provided. We need a committee chairperson and from five to ten additional committee members. The plan is to have committee process documents / manuals available in the next couple of weeks to assist each committee. If you have any interest in being on either of these committees or just have questions right now, please contact any Board member at your earliest convenience. The Board looks forward to working with the committee volunteers and thanks you in advance for your assistance and supporting this wonderful community.

So – end result, many participants and on lookers enjoyed this evening – that’s the Sunshine way! Thanks to all who turned out for this event and made it special – from participants to judges to helpers and to spectators. There was lots of work behind the scenes to make this successful.

The Harlingen Fire Truck brought Santa who arrived at Retzlaff Hall for photo ops. Cocoa and cookies were served plus we inherited the delicious left overs for the Bake Sale (Jane Olson et al).

We have decided to step down as Casino night co-chairs. It has been an interesting and at times overwhelming experience.

Therefore, it is our hope that someone else within our community would enjoy the challenge and continue this project and keep it going for the Women's Club! ​ We feel that if it is dropped at this point, it would be difficult to reestablish, as well could end up with higher costs. So, we are hoping there are a few of you out there in our community, that would be willing to shadow us in our last year and see what it takes to operate. Now would be a great time to step up and learn the ropes!

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Rio Grande Valley supports our community by providing a "home-away-from-home" for families of critically ill or injured children at local hospitals and clinics.

Their Wish List is posted in the Library and can also be found on the Web site by clicking on the icon located here (www.sunshinecountryclub.com/activities-details ).

This is a BYOB and snack type of event . AND - You may think the committee isn't aware that this is the normal Thursday Pavilion Happy Hour event day. BUT - You would be mistaken. We'd very much like folks to come out before the dance and join in the fun of the Pavilion Happy Hour. You might even be able to snatch a sizzling hot dog or two off the grill. NOTE - This is no signup for this event. Just come and get your groove on and enjoy your neighbors and friends. This will be one of the last events (and definitely the last Womens' Club event) before most of us head north for the summer. Thanks in advance for your support.

We were able to raise over $1400.00 for Ronald McDonald House! For those of you that missed the party, but would still like to donate, please feel free to drop by my home (4129 N Minnesota). I will be dropping off their wish list items, gift cards and money on Tuesday. Again, thank you for being so generous. Back to Top

With this Club platform we can share ideas, methods, and trade equipment. There are many activities and projects that are possible. Future plans could include: Working with area captains and work out deals for the club. Have guest speakers about fish and fish habitat and how our club could make a difference. We may plan a fish fry as a money maker for the club. Work with the SEPO Board in pond flora, fauna & habitat.
