Managers Report By Ray Geroux

Road paving has been completed for 2018 and in May 2019 we are scheduled to complete the Weatherford area roads.

North Hall Bathroom remodeling is complete and they look great.

The 2019 Budget process is under way with the Board Treasurer reviewing the year to date expenses and reserve funding. The office is closed Wednesday, July 4th for Independence Day! Have a safe holiday

President’s Desk

by Gail Metcalf Greetings! July is here and we permanent residents are enjoying the heat wave, well maybe… We hope our Snowbirds are enjoying family and good weather wherever you are!

Life in Brookridge goes on and there is always something to discuss. We have had many comments about speeding, of course. Since we have purchased the laser gun, speeding has fallen about 50% or more. It seems that most of the offenders are visitors and perhaps our residents who are still working. Unfortunately, we will never get all offenders.

We continue to ask you to let us know where and the time of day, if there seems to be a pattern. We will have security monitor problem areas. We have made headway and we will continue. With a new part-time clerk working with Security, the men will be out more often to patrol the roads.

What I cannot fathom is the fact that we are all adults, most of us over 55; and we still insist on speeding. I urge you to take a ride and just watch your speed. I am willing to bet that most of us do not realize how fast we travel.

We are up and running with the renovation of our Brookridge

Brookridge • July 2018

sign on Rte. 50. We had our first Town Hall Meeting with very good discussion. We will repeat these Town Hall Meetings in the year ahead. We are taking contributions in any amount towards a renovated sign. Any amount from $5.00 to your bankroll is appreciated. All donations must be sent or brought to the Administration office and given to Miss Vivian. You must make checks out to “Brookridge Community Property Owners” or “BCPO”, and put “front sign” in the memo line. Thank you to all who have already contributed. Please enjoy yourselves; stay hydrated and slow down just a little.

Brookridge Clubhouse News By Patrona Turman

Reminder—The Pavilion has recently gotten a facelift. It got electric outlets, lights and ceiling fans. There is a gas/charcoal grill that can be used there as well as 9 picnic tables.

It is a great space for family and friends to meet and spend time surrounded by some of the outdoor activities we have to offer. The pavilion is open during the pool hours and can be used any day.

If you would like to have a private gathering, just stop in the in the Clubhouse Office Tuesday thru Thursday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and reserve it!!

Security Captains Report By Greg Schubert

I would like to take a moment and remind everyone of some of the “Rules of the Road” in Brookridge: 1. The speed limit on Brookridge Blvd. is 30mph. All other streets are 25mph (unless otherwise posted). 2. All motorized vehicles (cars, golf carts, etc.) must be driven in the proper lane and obey all Stop signs. 3. Any golf cart that is driven after dark must have and use head/tail lights. 4. No vehicle is allowed to be parked on the grass of any lot. Vehicles must be parked on an approved surface only (concrete or parking pavers). 5. Street parking is allowed between the hours of 6:00 am and 1:00 am. Please do not block driveways, mailboxes or fire hydrants. 6. Handicapped parking spaces are for authorized vehicles only. 7. All pedestrians should walk opposite the flow of traffic. 8. RV’s and Motor Homes may be parked on a lot for a maximum of 3 days before use and 3 days after use. 9. Boats may be parked on a lot 1 day before use and 2 days after use.

MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY By Rosemary Basteri

Ken Sadjak and I wish to thank our residents who participated in the Memorial Day Ceremony. It was a pleasure to see so many veterans and their families. Many of those who have been called “The Greatest Generation” have passed. Sadly, a new generation of veterans fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran are taking their place as fallen heroes. In Arlington National cemetery there is a new plot, Section #60 devoted to those brave men and women.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone and there were many who helped put the program together. We could not have been successful without you.

We hope to see all of you on Veteran’s Day, Sunday November 11th.

2019 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING AGENDA

Members may submit, in writing, items they would like to be considered for the 2019 Annual Membership Meeting Agenda.

Please turn in items to the Administration office.

Deadline is no later than November 14, 2018 for the November 21, 2018 Board Meeting.

There will be some upcoming changes and we will let everyone know well in advance of the changes pertaining to what was our Fall Festival and Snowball Tea. We would like to thank everyone who donates items to our group. If you have items to donate, bring them to the clubhouse on Tuesday mornings or questions, contact our


Brookridge • July 2018 President Flo Dunham at 207-841-0262; she will be glad to answer any questions. Happy Fourth of July !

By Bill Hartman

POP – POW – FLASH - BOOM! Fireworks and beautiful displays of celebration tell us July has burst on the scene. As bright and sometimes annoying as the celebrations can be, there is no bigger celebration going on in our community than the joy of learning God’s Word the Bible. We meet all year so those of you that want to have fellowship with your friends in Brookridge during the summer months should come on out. We meet Wednesdays at 6:00 PM in room C at the clubhouse.

Bill Hartman directs the study, assisted by Linda Hartman and Dan Krotje.

It’s JULY!!!! Happy fourth!!!! It’s very HOT so be sure to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Drinking plenty of water is also good when we are trying to control our weight. Diet drinks don’t quench our thirst and the artificial sweeteners really aren’t healthy. In fact they make us MORE HUNGRY!

Join our weight control class and learn the healthy way to eat and drink. Three healthy meals, three healthy snacks, eight glasses of water and plenty of fruits and vegetables daily.

Come give us a try any Monday morning at nine. Our summer schedule starts with July – that means weigh-in only, and a few good jokes!

Donations­needed­due­to­animal­seizure: (Brooksville, FL) An animal seizure underway by the Hernando County Sheriff's Office has an undetermined number of dogs being rescued. These animals are being sheltered at an undisclosed, off-site location and are not yet available for adoption. An update will be provided when they become available for adoption.

Volunteers from the Florida State Animal Response Coalition are helping to care for these dogs until further notice. Donations needed: Towels Brown cardboard paper Dog shampoo

These items can be brought to Hernando County Animal Services located at 19450 Oliver St. in Brooksville or call (352) 796-5062. Virginia Singer Hernando County Government Public Information Manager 20 N. Main Street, Room 263 Brooksville, FL 34601 Office (352) 540-6780 Cell (352) 277-1069 vsinger@hernandocounty.us www.hernandocounty.us

MOSQUITO­CONTROL: Mosquitoes can be a nuisance to humans and animals and can carry and transmit diseases. To protect yourself against mosquito bites, if possible stay indoors between the hours of dusk and dawn. If you must go outside, wear a long-sleeved shirt, pants, socks and shoes and apply mosquito repellant to exposed skin. Mosquito repellants containing “DEET” are the most effective. It is important to read application instructions before using, especially on children. Hernando County Mosquito Control comes into the community periodically to spray for mosquitoes. We are also listing below tips for finding and stopping mosquitoes around your property:

1. Roof gutters clogged with leaves and debris are breeding sites for mosquitoes. Make sure water flows freely down the spouts. 2. Potted plants should be checked for puddled water in leaves or in saucers under pots. Also check wheel barrels, barbeque grills, bird baths, and anything that can hold water. 3. Leaky faucets should be turned off or repaired to keep from puddling. 4. Dispose or cover old tires, since these are a favorite breeding site for mosquitoes. 5. Mow grass and weeds to eliminate hiding places for mosquitoes.

HERNANDO YOUTH

The Hernando youth orchestra is in need of instrument donations. If you have any musical instruments around the house that you're not using, give it a new home. The instruments can be picked up for you, and will be fixed up before given to a young musician.

If you'd like to schedule a pick-up or learn more information, call (352) 544-8105 Hernando Youth Orchestra, Post Office Box 623, Brooksville, Fl 34605 Hernando Youth Orchestra is a 501(3)(C) charity
