Brookridge • October 2017

President’s Desk by Gail Metcalf

To our Brookridge family:

I am happy to report Brookridge has weathered Irma. Unfortunately, some of our neighbors did have some damage. On the positive side, everyone was safe. We can be proud of our employees who worked hard to keep us safe and our roads cleared.

We must thank Ray Geroux for keeping all residents updated who have their email addresses listed. This leads me to plead with you to give your email address to Vivian at the administration office. If you had, you would have been constantly posted on the hurricane and its impact on Brookridge Community. It only takes about three minutes to do this.

The Board urges you to read about the proposed 2018 budget. The Finance Committee, which consists of residents, not Board members, reviewed the needs of our Community. They felt we are in great shape; they felt strongly that we keep the same services that make Brookridge a wonderful home for all.

They have suggested a $2.00 increase, to $43.00. We have lived with $41.00 for the last three years. Everyone is aware that expenses keep rising. Ray Geroux has worked tirelessly to keep our expenses down.

To put this in perspective, in 1988 our assessment was $33.00. This $2.00 would increase our assessment to a total of only $10.00 in the last 20 years.

Rosemary will lead some Town Hall meetings to answer all concerns.

We will have a few Deed Restriction proposals on the Annual Ballot. In essence, one will set the permanent resident age limit to 18 years old. Another will limit the number of permanent residents to a home.

The third is a housekeeping Deed Restriction and By-law proposal streamlining the Violation Review process to assist the Violation Review Committee.

We will have as many Town Hall meetings as needed to help everyone understand we are trying to do the best we can for Brookridge.

As always, I am happy to discuss any and all concerns with you. Please contact our Executive Secretary, Dorene, at 352-596-0696, and she will set an appointment for you. Take care and be well.

2018 Brookridge Resident Telephone Directory

The Deadline is Friday, October 13th to have your phone number listed in the Brookridge Resident Telephone Directory. If you have already signed up your okay, if you want to change your number please see Vivian at the front office.

Fax your updates to 352-597-8174; email them to office@Brookridge.com or drop it in with your next payment, Thanks!

Thanks for all your community support! Be prepared for the rest of the hurricane season! And remember: always if you have an emergency call 911! Thank you.

As everyone is reading this month’s article, we have hopefully recovered from Hurricane Irma with little damage. Some residents sought out other options than staying here by going to a shelter or visiting relatives. Some of us experienced longer power outage than others and with some damage, we were unable to hold our original September meeting and it was postponed for a week if not more.

Crafty Stitchers is planning on taking part in the Garage Sale scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Club House where we will have our Raffle Quilt (this year it is a red, white

Our 16th Anniversary Party was supposed to be celebrated on September 15th at the Bay Port Inn. However, Irma made it impossible.

On September 5th 2001, Jane Walmsley and Dot Carignan started the classes and they (the classes) have been going strong all these years. Thanks Ladies!

Our Snow Birds should be here soon. The Classes run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the big hall starting at 8:30 am and finishing about 9:30 am. When the weather is hot, we walk the hall to music after the Class. Hope to see you there.

Where were you during Hurricane Irma? Come out to our study to learn what the future holds. Our Wednesday evening Bible study is year round and ready for you to come on out to visit with us as we share the Bible with one another. Our goal is to learn what God says to us about all the issues of life, death, and beyond!

This month we will be studying the books of John. The Hartmans chair the study, assisted by Dan Krotje. Our study reads a chapter of the Bible, gives a commentary of the chapter, then through discussions answer your questions. This is a non-denominational study of God’s Word. Reach Bill or Linda at (352) 293-4647, Or E-mail us: WWHarLin@aol.com

Here is a word from the Bible for you: 1 John 5:1-5 (KJV) Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. (2) By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. (3) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. (4) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (5) Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Welcome to another great year of learning and fun! Our parttime residents are beginning to return and Brookridge Clubs are gearing up.

Our first meeting of the season will be held at the clubhouse on Monday October 9th at 1 pm. The speaker will be Master Gardener, Gary Gethen of Springbrook Orchids.

Mr. Gethen also grows many perennials including those wonderful Amaryllis plants in glorious colors that we see all over. He has agreed to talk to us about growing both the orchids and amaryllis.

New members and guest are always welcomed to our friendly meetings. They’re held October through April on the 2nd Monday of the month. We always have our speaker first and then followed by short business meeting and ending with refreshments and pleasant socializing.

We would love to see old members as well. We welcome new ideas and suggestions for interest and learning of our members and friends.

Please call Kat Durham at 352-596-5430 if you have any questions or suggestions. Hope to see you there!

(3) For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Do you have questions? God has answers. Contact Bill Hartman for more info: 352-293-4647

Welcome back all you snowbirds! Hopefully, your summer was all blue skies, cool breezes and tons of fun. And now we look forward to a winter with those same qualities. There will be games to play every day except Sunday. Between Pickleball and Tennis, we have you covered. If you can play one of those games, you can play the other. Both sports help to develop body strength and coordination. And lots of calories are burned! We start early to avoid the heat, so we will look for you at 8:00 am, weather permitting. All skill levels are welcome. A special note to Ron Leaky who has not been on the courts lately. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back at the nets real soon.

Contractors/Vendors Notice

Brookridge does not pay for the printing of this newsletter because the printer, Design Graphic, sells advertising to local vendors and contractors. Please be aware that the printing company does NOT screen vendors or contractors for proper licensing or insurance when they purchase an ad in our News & Views or TV Channel, so it is a buyer beware situation just like selecting a company out of the newspaper.

When calling any vendor or contractor to do work for you, either request a copy of their occupational license, a Certificate of Insurance and in addition also call the Hernando County Contractor Licensing Department 352754-4109 to verify their information.

Some vendors or contractors require 50% down but try to hold back as much as you can as leverage to make sure the job is done correctly. DO NOT PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE UNTIL ALL WORK IS DONE AND MEETS WITH YOUR APPROVAL NEVER PRE-PAY THE ENTIRE AMOUNT UP FRONT.

NEVER ENTER INTO A VERBAL AGREEMENT – GET EVERY DETAIL IN WRITING AND HAVE THE CONTRACTOR SIGN IT AND HAVE THEM STATE, IN WRITING, THE WARRANTY PERIOD FOR THE MATERIAL AND LABOR.

A little planning at the beginning can save you a nightmare at the end. Post this article on your refrigerator so it will be handy the next time you need to have work done. You can arrange to meet them at the Admin office Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 3:30 pm or the Clubhouse if you are uncomfortable meeting in your home for the first time. Be Safe Brookridge

New Medicare cards offer greater protection to more than 57.7 million Americans. New cards will no longer contain Social Security numbers, to combat fraud and illegal use

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is readying a fraud prevention initiative that removes Social Security numbers from Medicare cards to help combat identity theft, and safeguard taxpayer dollars. The new cards will use a unique, randomly-assigned number called a Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), to replace the Social Security-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) currently used on the Medicare card. CMS will begin mailing new cards in April 2018 and will meet the congressional deadline for replacing all Medicare cards by April 2019. CMS has kicked-off a multi-faceted outreach campaign to help providers get ready for the new MBI. CMS is committed to a successful transition to the MBI for people with Medicare and for the health care provider community. CMS has a website dedicated to the Social Security Removal Initiative (SSNRI) where providers can find the latest information and sign-up for newsletters. CMS is also planning regular calls as a way to share updates and answer provider questions before and after new cards are mailed beginning in April 2018.
