The Clubhouse activities are slowing down, also. Vince and the crew will be spiffing up the Clubhouse and grounds as the summer rolls along.

Which brings me to the Pool. The Board is concerned about the activities going on. We will be monitoring to make sure the rules are being followed. As we have done with the Administration and Security personnel, we have zero tolerance for bad behavior against the Pool monitors and the Pool rules. Please remember, there is NO jumping into the pool, NO misconduct such as running, bad manners, swearing, fighting, roughhousing, etc. PLEASE remember, ABUSE to monitors could result in immediate removal and loss of pool privileges. We are all neighbors in this community, please respect everyone.

On a positive note, we now have a full A/VRC team of Volunteers. We have two new Unit Representatives. We now have eight Unit Reps. We only need four more for a full crew. We are still in need of one Unit Rep in Unit 1 and Unit 6, and two Unit Reps in Unit 3. Thank you for all who have come forward. We encourage you to come to a Unit Rep meeting and find out what they do. One of the most important jobs they have is to welcome new residents to Brookridge. It is very rewarding and you will have an opportunity to meet new people.

Managers Report By Ray Geroux

Our best wishes and farewell to Ken & Edna Weidman who provided Brookridge Sunday Church services for many years have moved north to be close to family. Have a safe summer

President’s Desk Hello Fellow Members,

by Gail Metcalf

It has gotten a little quiet around Brookridge with our Seasonal friends gone. But we have plenty of work in the summer months. The Beautification Committee is busy keeping our flowerbeds looking great, with the help of our Public Works crew. Billy, our Supervisor of Public Works, along with Kevin and Phil do a great job all year round keeping Brookridge beautiful. We cannot thank them enough for all their hard work. Security is doing its best at keeping Brookridge safe. They are doing wellness checks on our residents. They are enforcing the speed limits, and handling the many residents who come into the Administration office with problems. They do so much behind the scenes that most of us are not aware.

Security Report By Greg Schubert

I would like to take a moment and remind everyone of some of the “Rules of the Road” in Brookridge.

The speed limit on Brookridge Blvd. is 30mph. All other streets are 25mph (unless otherwise posted).

All motorized vehicles (cars, golf carts, etc.) must be driven in the proper lane and obey all Stop signs.

Any golf cart that is driven after dark must have and use head/tail lights.

No vehicle is allowed to be parked on the grass of any lot. Vehicles must be parked on an ACC approved surface only (concrete or parking pavers).

Street parking is allowed between the hours of 6am and 1am. Please do not block driveways, mailboxes or fire hydrants.

Handicapped parking spaces are for authorized vehicles only.

All pedestrians should walk opposite the flow of traffic and wear light color clothing.

While walking pets, make sure they are not interfering with the flow of traffic. RV’s and Motor Homes may be parked on a lot for a maximum of 3 days before use and 3 days after use.

Boats may be parked on a lot 1 day before use and 2 days after use.

Brookridge Accounting Notice

Page 9

Our friendly reminder notice mailed out on the 15th has been modified to be sent as a postcard notice instead of the folded letter. This will allow us to use the current postcard postage rate of .34 cents each instead of .46 cents. We will also reduce labor time since we no longer need to fold and seal those letters. We usually send 250 – 300 notices per month. On more than one occasion since this policy was started in 2011 an owner has said they had forgot and are thankful for the friendly reminder. If you do normally make your payments between the 15th and the 30th please continue to do so. Owners will only be charged the current late fee if the payment is made after the last day of the month.

RV Compound

By now you have received the letter and updated Rules and Regulations for our RV Compound and a types of violations summary sheet. Please familiarize yourself with these new procedures. In November 2017, we will start enforcing these new guidelines. Hope you are having a great Summer and see you in the Fall.

Brookridge • June 2017

President Metcalf – A bush was hacked up on Brookridge Blvd on a night after someone was caught speeding. Security was near the bush. The person caught speeding decided to cut the bush so that they can see the Security vehicle. We don’t know who it was but it was done the night after Security had been there. This is destruction of property and carries a felony charge. If anyone knows anything about this incident please let Administration know. Also, there are employees ready to quit because of verbal abuse. Please know that we have Security cameras at Administration, the Guard Shack and the Clubhouse that record what you do and say. Any abuse comes with a fine of $100 and a 60 day suspension. Please be kind and considerate to our employees. The Golf Association is trying to bring us all together. They just voted to allow residents to play during the summertime between 12:00 p.m. & 2:30 p.m. and you only need to pay the green fees. They are trying to introduce people to the Golf Course. A Tournament for BCPO residents and golfers are in the works.

Secretary Sajdak – We are doing our best to keep the speeding down. Speeders have no regard for residents, visitors or the wildlife in our community. Also, periodically our employees have been subjected to verbal abuse. The Board of Directors do not take this lightly. Please treat all of our employees with respect. They do a good job and we don’t want to see anyone quit because of it.

Director Ross – We are continuing to look for Unit Representatives. Please contact Peggy Christie, our Unit Rep Chairperson, if you are interested. Member Comments: (no motions or consensus will be considered) Rosemary Basteri #4 (2nd Annual Art Festival), Gail Metcalf #6 (Assisted Living Facility on Tundra Rd), Ron Ross #6 (BCPO - Spectrum channels 95 & 732), Ken Sajdak #4 (Pancake Breakfast) & Linda Smith #1 (Singles Club – Pavilion Hot Dog Roast @ 5pm).

Brookridge • June 2017

But guess what? We should not feel that way! Right now we humans are the only God given life we know of that can even come close to understanding the vastness of the cosmos and our place in it. I asked the question, "Where are We?" We are on Earth, third rock from a star, just a physical spec in the cosmos, but to all of us the most important spec in the Universe.

Share your good deeds. I encourage all clubs to notify Jean Hamilton of the Tampa Bay Times of your events that benefit the Brooksville Community. Fund raisers, charitable donations, or awards are some examples. If you include a good color photo in your email she may include it in your story. You can email Jean at Jhamilton@tampabay.com or by phone at 352-848-1438 To learn more fun astronomy stuff, come to our next club

The Projector

meeting or join us at our observing session at the west end of Midmoor Blvd. All are welcome and you do not have to own a telescope or binocular to attend. Just bring your interAttention Clubs, the projector has been placed in the clubhouse inventory for your access. It connects to a laptop to project on est, questions, enthusiasm, and smiles. Until next month, a screen. If your club needs to use it please check it out from keep looking up! the monitors office, great for showing slides or power point programs.

Upcoming Astronomical Events:

• June 19—7:00PM Club Meeting, Brookridge Club House, Room D • June 16— 8:30PM Observing Star Party, End of Midmoor Blvd. (Weather Permitting)

Where are we? I'm referring to the Earth, which includes all living organism and anything bound to it by mutual gravitational attraction. e.g. moon, satellites, etc. We are the third rock (planet) from our closest star (sun). What I'm asking is where are we in the big picture, what we call the universe.

We circle our sun (one year) at an average distance of 93 million miles. Our sun resides about 2/3 of the way from the center of our Milky Way galaxy in a bending band of millions of stars called the Orion Arm. That places us at about 30,000 light years (ly) from our galactic center. Trying to view our position in our galaxy is difficult since we reside within it, but astronomers use the positions of other stars and our relationship to them as position markers.

Now let's go further. On most nights we can look "up" and see the closest galaxy to our own Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy. Andromeda is about 2.2 million ly away. That's a lot of space between us and our closest neighbor. Keeping this distance in mind, remember last month (April Issue) I stated there are at least 1 trillion galaxies in the Universe, with millions of stars in each galaxy. Are we feeling lonely yet, in galactic terms?

Getting back to our own Milky Way Galaxy, let's look at another perspective of our residence in space. We can use the analogy of a child's average sandbox, each grain of sand in the sandbox representing a star in our own galaxy. All the stars we can see in the night sky with the unaided eye would fit into one thimbleful of sand. In fact, we cannot even see the other half of our galaxy (90,000 ly in diameter). Our sight is blocked by the central bulge of concentrated stars around the central black hole. That really makes us feel really tiny in the great vastness we call the Universe.

Brookridge residents: We have planted many new flowers, decorative grasses, bushes along the Boulevard. As you are aware the drought has been very hard this year and it is stressing many of the plants we have put in. If you live in front of any of these planted beds along the Boulevard, the Beautification Committee would be very thankful if you would give the plants that look stressed a drink of water until the drought is over. This will save us the time, expense and energy in having to replace the ones that don’t make it this Fall.

Thank you in advance for taking pride in your community and your help.

By Bill Hartman

There will be no regular CERT meetings during June, July, and August. We will resume our regular schedule September 6th (the first Wednesday in September).

Our regular meetings are on the first Wednesday of the month at 10 AM room D. Guests are welcome to sit in on a meeting to learn about any updates of CERT. Brookridge residents: If you are interested in volunteering to be a member of CERT, please let me know at WWHarLin@aol.com, or Call (352) 2934647.

Thanks for all your community support! And remember: always if you have an emergency call 911! Thank you.

My apologies for not having an article in the May issue of the News & Views. I had it ready but had one of those senior moments and forgot to send it.

Crafty Stitchers had their monthly meeting in which, they dispense money that has been raised through everyone’s efforts from craft fairs. So far, we have donated $200 to the Beautification Committee for their continued hard work within the community. We donated money to purchase items for the Clubhouse that is on their “wish list” in the amount of $1500. Also, voted to give the CERT committee a check in the amount of $100 to help them out in any way that they felt would help. The snowbirds have left this warm environment to head north to the cool and rainy weather that greeted them upon their arrivals. Looking forward to their return in the fall and hopefully bringing back some cool and sunny weather to us. They have taken items to be completed to sell at the fall festival.

We have the quilt raffle tickets available at $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. Please contact Judy Howard for tickets. She can be reached at 207-576-5295. The quilt will be raffled off at the Fall Craft Fair to be held on Saturday, October 26, 2017. Please help support Crafty Stitchers by purchasing tickets. Below is a picture of the red, white and blue oversized queen size quilt.

If you are new to the community and would like to get involved, please join us on Tuesday as we have a great time socializing as well as making items for the craft fair. We are always looking for new ideas for craft items. Do you have a craft that you would be willing to show us how to make? How about coming to talk to us on any Tuesday morning from 9 to 11 and you can check out our supply room for items that can be used.

We would like to thank everyone who donates items to our group. We try to find a use for everything. If you have items to donate, bring them to the clubhouse on Tuesday mornings or call our President to arrange a convenient time. If you have any further questions, contact our President Flo Dunham at 207841-0262; she will be glad to give you more information. Looking forward to having you join us.

June is for many the start of the summer vacations and vacation schedules. That means that some clubs here at Brookridge do not meet. However, our Wednesday evening Bible study is year round. Come on out to visit with us as we share the Bible with one another and learn what God says to us. Wednesday Evening Bible Study start time is 6PM in the clubhouse room C. Bring your Bible and stay with us for an hour.

This month our Bible study will continue in the book of Hebrews. Linda and Bill Hartman co-chair the study, assisted by Dan Krotje (an up and coming Bible Teacher we are pleased to have with us). Our study consists of reading a chapter in the Bible, giving a commentary of the chapter, and leading discussions which include answering your questions. This is a non-denominational study taken from God’s Word. You may contact Bill or Linda at (352) 293-4647, Or E-mail us: WWHarLin@aol.com

Here is a Bible lesson you may wish to know: Hebrews 4:12 (KJV) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

New members are always welcome at this sewing for charity club. Workshops are every Thursday in room D at the clubhouse from 9 am until 11a.m. The second Thursday of May is the last business meeting until fall. We have all supplies; just bring your desire. We need people who can use a sewing machine; also those who can iron or cut out fabric for gowns. Thank you Brookridge for such donations of gently used, colored sheets and kid friendly fabric that we use so much of for Linus blankets.

Delivered to our charities in April: A member took 3 hats for a friend having chemotherapy. Gifts From Home got 1000 star packages and 50 sets of neck, head coolers and toiletries for the troops. Tangerine Cove assisted living got 30 bibs. Hospice got 7 gowns.

Some of our members have already left us for summer homes. Many will be going soon. To all of you, thank you for your participation in our charitable endeavors and fundraiser. We wish you a safe trip and a summer filled with fun and good health. On your travels don’t forget we can use all those toiletries you pick up along the way, that we’ll donate to our charities. If you are a permanent resident our workshops are open all summer as long as there are enough people.

This Church Service is open to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of God’s connection with you. Come to experience the blessings that God has in store for you. Our goal is to allow any that do not have a home church to have the opportunity to fellowship and learn what is said in God’s Word the Bible. Also, we would like anyone that has a home church to come out for an early morning worship service before you go to your home church services.

2 Timothy 2:8-15 (KJV) Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: (9) Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. (10) Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. (11) It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: (12) If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: (13) If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. (14) Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. (15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Do you have questions? God has answers.

Art Festival 2017

Thank you for permission to do the second annual Art Festival. It was my pleasure, done with the help of many people. Ray Geroux and Ana Oliveira helped us to get started. I would also like to thank the Monitors and Vince at the clubhouse, they were helpful setting up exactly the way I made the floor plan. Karen Doolan was outstanding with her knowledge of advertising and getting it done. The kitchen was led by james Snyder and his crew was Nancy Sajdak, Christine Borrusso, Carole Tobey and Karen Keaton, with Jane Mulvaney ordering the donuts for us. We had Eileen Smith taking care of the door prizes that were donated by the artists and crafters, and helped by Cindy Claytor and Becky Thornton. The help at the door was Beverly Epstein, who was the perfect person to direct folks to the table they had and help in any situation. It could not have been done without all of them. The extra door prizes were donated by Jane Mulvaney of the Monday night All-Stars Entertainment, Fletcher Music, and Doug Houran was here to play the Organ for our entertainment. Thank you Jackie McCabe
