President’s Message – November 2013

4 Dec

Let’s not forget Thanksgiving and especially giving thanks for the great neighborhood we live in! I have many things to be thankful for, I am thankful for my wonderful neighbors in the IOP. I just bought a solar powered turkey and it is bobbing its head in agreement with me.

We had a successful community yard sale! I hope we can continue them year after year that will make sure we get folks in town interested. Great job everyone on your signs!

The IOP Christmas party and golf cart parade are the next upcoming events. Would love to see you at the pavilion decorating party Sunday Dec 8th at 2:00, music and refreshments. All ages are welcome and young people can get volunteer hours for school too. See you at these one of a kind events!

I am looking forward to driving around our neighborhood to see all the decorated homes our neighbors really do some spectacular displays. This year you can drive through Moss Park and see “Light up the Wild” too.

It is still not too late to join the IOP association you can contact Hugh or myself to join.

The IOP association is looking forward to next year and asking for new board members; contact anyone on the board know you are interested in being on the ballot. There is one board member that was put on the ballot to just see if he would be elected and he was he has been a great asset to our board as all our board members are. Giving back to our small community is very rewarding for all of us.

Thanks to the volunteers for maintaining the IOP playground and beach areas these areas are looking well maintained and free of weeds. Thank you to all the volunteers that have given their time to our association!

The IOP Facebook has been a great success if you haven’t joined look for groups on Face book or go to and connect from there. Post info only important to IOP, lost animals, free items, and events happening in and around the IOP.

Enjoy every minute of the holidays!
