MANAGER’S CORNER I know that there have been many questions about when the new coating will go on the roads. The company that is doing the work will send me a work plan before they start. At that point, we will have a meeting at the clubhouse where I will give out all of the information that I have. I want to thank the Homeowner’s Association Board for the event that they put together on July 4th. For those that were unable to attend, you missed a great party. Thanks again.

For the newcomers. Do not cross a state highway(Rt 27) with a golfcart. The police will hand out a fairly expensive ticket for this offense. The Editor

Berry Berry Cool Pie
1 can (14oz) condensed sweetened milk 1/c cup lemon juice 1 ½ cups assorted fresh berries (your choice) 1 (8oz) container frozen non dairy whipped topping (thawed) 1 (6oz) graham cracker pie crust
We have now been in the community for one year now.
Just a little note, I hope everyone who came to the Fourth of July party had a good time. I think things went very well and it turned out to be a very nice day. We do look forward to having other events in the future that will turn out to be as much fun.
In a large bowl, mix together condensed milk and lemon juice; combine well. Mix in berries. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon mixture into crust. Freeze five hours or until set. Let stand for 30 to 40 minutes before serving. Keep leftovers covered in freezer.
We would like to thank all of those who have made us feel at home and made our year such a great experience. This is a great place to live. Mary & David Schnopp
As far as I know, the road work will probably be done at the end of July or the first week of August. From what I’ve been told, the patches had to cure. We will be having new road signs that Bill will be putting up after the road work has been completed.
Well, that’s all of the news for now. I hope everyone has had a nice summer so far.

REMEMBER WHEN I was asked to tell you about what it was like as a child growing up in WWII. Some of my thoughts are on Cape Cod MA. Do you remember- We collected milk weed pods for Navy life preservers. We also collected tin cans, tin foil and newspapers. We also saved meat fat drippings. Butter was so scarce so this is when our markets came out with Oleo. We remember the yellow button that came in the oleo pack that you pushed and broke and squeezed and squeezed and squeezed to make the oleo look like butter. When in grammar school and doing the Pledge of Allegiance, you would first put your hand over your heart and then stretch out your arm and point to the flag. This was done away with as it looked too much like the Nazi salute. We remember blacking out the top half of the headlights on our car, and ration stamps for sugar, meat, coffee and gas. We took our money to school to buy War Bonds. We grew Victory Gardens. We had air raid drills in school and hid under our desks. There were wardens walking the beaches at night to see if any subs were off shore or rubber boats coming ashore. I know that some German subs did go through the Cape Cod Canal. After the 1944 hurricane we had German prisoners cleaning up the fallen trees. We remember the day FDR dies.
