Another concern I have heard since moving into Brookridge two years ago is that the Snowbirds feel left out of the Annual Meetings. I have reviewed our Governing Documents, spoke with my fellow Board Members and Mr. Geroux, our General Manager. We are working to move the Annual Meeting to March, 2017.

We have incorporated the On-line Voting process into our Governing Documents. We will work diligently to get this system up and running, possibly for the Budget vote in November. We will have meetings to walk everyone through the process. One way you can assist is to have your contact information up to date. This includes your name, mailing address, phone number, and especially, your email address so that you can utilize the on-line voting process. Please feel free to contact the office for more information. We hope to have all the questions answered for the Limitation of Ownership Deed Restriction amendment proposal for the Board to vote on at our August meeting. We welcome our members to come to our meeting for the discussion before it goes to the Membership for a vote. I want to thank Mrs. Ross for volunteering to be a Unit Representative. We still have one more open seat. Unit Reps will welcome new residents and assist them with understanding the Governing Documents. Please feel free to contact my secretary at the office for more information.

Just a gentle reminder, please be sure to have your Pool Pass when going to the pool. The Pool Monitors have been The main clubhouse hall will be closed for waxing August 20 – advised to check for violators who have lost their privileges, therefore, everyone must have their Pass.

President’s Desk by Gail Metcalf

Hello Brookridge Residents,

It is now well into the summer months, I am still waiting for my New England blood to thin out enough so that I may enjoy the outdoors. The flowers and yards are beautiful as I drive through the Community.

We, the Board, have been working hard to make Brookridge a safe place to live and walk. We have purchased a new Lazer Unit to monitor Brookridge Blvd and other roads. This Unit proved very effective in other communities to alleviate

Beautification Committee By Nancy Lowry

“Upon further review” the steam bath months of July and August are not the best time for painting the fountain. Paraphrasing the hit from the fifties, “Salt gets in you eyes.”

Planning for a full committee agendas September through March 2017 is happening now and should keep our snowbird members active. Maintenance of our projects, April through September is by a well-hydrated few. Many thanks to our latest donors (Mary Babcock, Al & Nancy Cable, Charles & Laurie Parker and Dick Theriault), their generosity helped in giving mulch to the clubhouse and areas missed on the boulevards. Donations allow us to do more than just what our Brookridge volunteers need. Our next Beautification meeting will be held on August 4th at 9 AM.

Although it’s been hot and people are on vacation, the Weight Control Program is going strong.

If you have been a member in the past and have dropped out for any reason, we would love to have you back. We still meet every Monday morning @ eight. It’s hard to get back in the swing of the program, but we are here and willing to help you in any way we can. We all “fall off the wagon” at times but the sooner we face the scale, the easier it is. Men and Women are welcome. Hope to see you Monday! “NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS BEING THIN FEELS.”

DISCUSSION

Report of Directors:

Director Stratton – The Fourth of July is our next Board event. The dance will be on July 4th as well as the raffle for the 32’ Smart TV. All the Directors have raffle tickets and you can pick them up at the Administration office as well as the Clubhouse. At 9:00 a.m. there will be a brief celebration and a sendoff of the Golf Cart Parade. Following the parade, there will be a shuffleboard & corn hole bean bag competition. Feel free to bring a food dish to share at the pavilion. Hope to see you there. Director Ross – Announced that he has raffle tickets for the TV. The Unit Reps are working on a letter that will be available for the new residents. They are getting slips on the new residents moving in so they can know who the new people are. If you have a new neighbor moving in, be sure to say, “Hi” and greet them as well as encourage them to attend our Association meetings. The ACC Committee is starting to work on a provision in regards to pools. More information to come.

Secretary Sajdak – Stated that he would like to keep you informed on the Limitation on Ownership. The draft that the committee drew up was sent to the attorney. We will keep you up to date every time we hear something from it. Attorney Steven Mezer responded, “It needs work. The concept is good but it needs to be clear enough that the Board has nothing to interpret and owners know what the restriction means. We should indicate that transactions in violation are void.” So the first step was that the committee came up with the draft (which came out of Highpoint’s Deed Restrictions), second step was forwarding it to the attorney, and when we hear more from that we will let you know. There was a comment made at the last meeting that Steven Mezer was Highpoint’s attorney but he has never worked as Highpoint’s attorney. Mr. Bundy was the one that wrote that up and he used to be Brookridge’s attorney back in 2008.

1st Vice President Starr – Limitation on Ownership is going to be a very important issue that will be facing us come late summer or early fall. Mr. Sajdak has done a wonderful job at pursuing it and keeping us informed. We may have commentary at the Wednesday night Board meetings about what the progress is and what we can anticipate time wise so we can proceed. We will give it further thought once we hear from the attorney.

2nd Vice President Miller - Stated that in July we will not have a Wednesday night meeting.

Member Comments: (no motions or consensus will be considered) Rich Stratton #3 (Unit Reps & New owners), Tom DiGregorio # (Apologized for attorney info)

MOTION BY SAJDAK SECONDED BY STARR, TO ADJOURN. MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY. Adjourned at 7:36 p.m.

By Pastor Ken Weidman

Got Water? When our lawn is dry, we water it; if we are dirty, we shower. Dryness or dirtiness is washed and cleansed. There is a "water" used figuratively in the Bible - Paul, in Ephesians 5:25,26, in teaching how husbands and wives should live, mentions Christ loving and giving Himself for the Church, "That he might sanctify and cleanse it by the washing of water by the word."

In John 17:17, in Jesus' prayer to His Father, asks "Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth." To "sanctify" is to "set apart" - born-again believers, from the world, unto God and for His service. These verses give the spiritual cleansing of II Thessalonians 2:13, By "the Spirit and belief of the truth." This at salvation and afterward. Sometimes we are "dry" or "soiled" spiritually and emotionally, But we can at any time, any day, "take a shower" in the Word of God. Saturday or Sunday "Squirts" don't do enough. The Lord cleanses use the right water. All are invited to Sunday service, 9 am, Room D. Info: Call Pastor Ken, 352-515-6509

Clubs of Brookridge By Ray Geroux, GM

Share your good deeds. I encourage all clubs to notify Jean Hayes 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 jhayes@tampabay.com or by phone at 352-848-1438.

The Projector

Attention Clubs, the projector has been placed in the clubhouse inventory for your access. It connects to a laptop to project on a screen. If your club needs to use it please check it out from the monitors office, great for showing slides or power point programs.

By Philip Rastocny

In 1863, Philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This phrase has been remodeled in many ways but the meaning never changes: to move forward one cannot forget the shoulders on which they now stand. In the early years of NASA, President Robert F. Kennedy announced that “We should go to the moon…” and a country unconditionally united behind these words in a fashion few in history had envisioned before. Each step of this long road had to work flawlessly and millions of questions answered before the next step could be made. History recalls the accomplishment, not the faceless people involved in making such history. The faces and names have fade into the sunset like so much dust settling on the floor. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first robotic missions to the moon, the Surveyor series. I can still recall the televised broadcast of the lunar pictures showing what the surface was like. Today, history books gloss over details and summarize these missions as “Apollo” or “Gemini.” But the unnamed heroes are those who toiled tirelessly for decades behind the scenes supporting one great human achievement.

This month we will be celebrating another anniversary. We started this study with our first meeting in August. Our purpose was to provide a time in the evening for those that wanted to study God’s Holy Word but were tied up by work or other daytime activities. Do you need a refresher course in Bible? Come join the Wednesday Evening Bible study. We will be finishing our current studies in II Corinthians.

We meet each Wednesday in Room C from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Linda and Bill Hartman co-chair the study, assisted by Dan Krotje. We use a simple format of Bible reading, discussions, and questions & answers. (Your participation is according to your comfort level.) This is a non-denominational study. If you need any more information feel free to contact Bill or Linda at (352) 293-4647, Or E-mail us: WWHarLin@aol.com

Happy Anniversary Bible students! Thank you for your part in making this study great. Second Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Are you ready to return to your studies of God’s Word? Come out each Wednesday evening 6 PM to study God’s words for you found in the Holy Bible.

By Carole Levesque

It’s 101 degrees on the porch! Summer is really here now! We will be celebrating our 15th anniversary in September. WOW! Time flies!

2016/2017 SEASON

The 2016/2017 season opens October 3, 2016 with “Christine Joyce”. There will be a summary of the show in the ”Chip-Shots” in September. Since the shows are the 1st Monday of the month, all shows will be in the “Chip-Shots” the month prior to the show so you will have the opportunity to view the show that is scheduled for the following month. There are 2 single season tickets available this year, but if you are interested in tickets for the October or November shows, we have many to sell because our “Snowbirds” are not all back as yet. Any tickets bought for the 2 months (October, November) in advance will be $5.00 each instead of $6.00 at the door price. “Share the Wealth” chances will be sold for $3.00 for 9 tickets and $5.00 for 18 tickets. All winners are guaranteed $20.00 or more depending on money collected.

If you have any question, or wish to purchase either season ticket or tickets for the October or November shows, please call me, Jane (352) 597-1357. I would love to hear from you.

Summer sure is here and our Summer League on Tuesdays has been a challenge as it has been very hot and humid, but golfers have been showing up, some only playing nine holes and others being bold and playing 18. Remember, it is a fun day and everyone enjoy their day out in the fresh air and the after golf get together for refreshments and chatter. Come out and join us. Also, if you would like to sit at the table one week and check the golfers in, there is a sign- up calendar to choose the week you would like to help us out.

We still have golfers who have not as yet paid their 20162017 Dues of $25.00 requested be paid before September 1, 2016 This deadline is set so that the Membership List is current and the necessary sheets for the Coordinator can be completed and the League Directory can be put together by the time League starts on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Remember to drink lots of water when out on the golf course and try to stay cool.

By Sharon Dickinson

Thank You

I wish to say “Thank You” to each and every one of you who rallied around to help me in my time of need.

In the middle of the night, three weeks ago, a car hit my house and destroyed it. I had no idea what to do. A neighbor and friend took over and managed everything for me as well as being instrumental in finding me a place to live. Another neighbor let me stay at his brother’s home for a few days. The next Sunday morning, starting at 7am, a group of caring folks came together and moved all of my possessions to the new house. A friend brought his large trailer and with help from neighbors and friends and some from the golf course, my things were all moved in by that afternoon. Some even stayed to help with the unpacking process. Believe me, it was something to see. My cat “Frankie” and I were very lucky. Neither of us was hurt - just scared to death. Now thunder storms bother us more than ever. (When the car went through the front of the house it sounded like thunder.)

Again, from the bottom of my heart, my thanks to each and every one of you. Rita Farrington
