Presidents Message September 2020

13 Aug

It’s that time of year…. hurricane season. Please make sure you are prepared this season with not only the essential hurricane supplies, but also make sure your ditches are cleared out and haul off unwanted trash and debris. If you have a generator or chainsaw, make sure it is running correctly. Have basic replacement parts on hand like spark plugs, air & oil filters, oil, chains, and fresh gas. There are plenty of people that can help get your generator/chainsaws running if you’re having problems. Ask for help on our Facebook page or contact one of the board members in this newsletter.
We will be doing a Labor Day event this year (9/7 starting 5-9pm). IOP members will need to RSVP by 9/4 for a prepared meal ( Currently the event will be open to members only but may open to members and guests if COVID conditions improve. Additional details are provided in this newsletter and on the IOP Facebook page. Volunteers will be needed to prepare/serve food and clean up. If you are interested, please let Terry ( know.

IOP members, you can join the IOP fishing club! If you have a boat or know another member that has a boat and would like to take part in a friendly fishing tournament, then look no further. It’s also a great opportunity to meet likeminded neighbors and exchange lies…. I mean stories. If you are interested in joining, more details are in the newsletter or reach out to Matt Rock ( for additional club information.

We are looking for a member to volunteer to run the Halloween Event coming up 10/31. Never done it before…Don’t worry, we are able to help and answer any questions. If interested, please reach out to the board on our Facebook page or contact one of the board members in this newsletter. We will be watching the COVID situation and will announce event plans accordingly as the date gets closer.

IOP-Stay cool, safe, alert, healthy, friendly, small and slow down.
