Presidents Message June 2017

24 May

Hello Neighbors,
Well it is beginning to get hot again and we have to be mindful of our surroundings living in our unique area. Many neighbors have had encounters with many venomous snakes. Please keep a close eye on children and pets as these snakes are easily camouflaged. Other animals are on the move as well, especially the alligators. Please do not feed or entice them if you are near the water. If you encounter a nuisance alligator please call 866-392-4286.
The water temperatures are rising quickly and every year we have concerns about the high bacteria counts in the lake. If you are unsure about whether or not to swim because of bacteria or amoeba, you can call Moss Park and ask if their swimming area is open or if they have detected any high bacteria, as they do regular bacteria tests. Moss Park 407-254-6840
We are excited to announce we are hosting our first annual Family Carnival FUNdraiser on September 3rd to raise funds for park improvements and the dog park. We are working diligently to provide a great event. Save the date and please share this with your family and friends and let’s create a successful FUNdraiser event to last for generations. If you are interested in helping with this event please contact myself or any board member. More information will be posted on the via newsletters, emails, and on the neighborhood facebook group (Isle of Pines-Residents).
Lastly, I and others have seen quite a few people not being responsible for their dogs mess. Please Please Please pick up after your dogs when you walk them. We have an active community and nobody wants to step in or smell dog poo while out for a nice walk. We prefer the aroma of all the blooming jasmine.
I personally welcome all residents to attend our monthly board meetings held the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm at the south park.
Stay safe and be kind,
Terry Gardner, Sr.
IOPPOA President
