SCCCA Helped Members Get Vaccinated

Community Association President Bob Sullivan, Deputy Jeffrey Merry, and Renee Bray were among the volunteers and staff members assisting during the vaccines. This photo was taken on the last day of shots at Community Hall, Saturday, February 20.

Florida guardsmen from Pinellas County assisted with all vaccination days. At the start of the line, nurses and guardsmen helped. Then volunteers from the Security Patrol kept track of our wait time afterwards to make sure we didn’t have a reaction.

Computer Club Monthly Meeting

Wed., March 10, from 7 – 8 p.m. At this meeting, Bill Crowe, from the Sarasota Technology Users Group, will review the technologies that make the smartphone “smart”. The smartphone is really a miracle device considering all it can do. It is a camera, a telephone, a music player, a translator, a flashlight, and a dictation machine, all wrapped up in a small portable package. This presentation will explore the technologies that had to be available to converge at the time of the invention of the smartphone. There are no classes scheduled for March.

Potters Wheel Club Donates to SCC Organizations

The membership of the Potters Wheel Club of SCC recently voted to continue donations to SCC non-profit organizations, despite lower than usual income for the year due to COVID restrictions. Charitable gifts from the Club have been made to the Community Association Hardship Fund, Samaritan Services, the SCC Emergency Squad and the CA Holiday Employee Fund. The Potters Wheel Club offers lessons and space for both wheel-thrown and handbuilt pottery. As they are currently unable to teach required beginning classes due to COVID space restrictions, the Studio cannot accept new members. For current members, the Studio is operating with timed sign-ups, cleaning schedules and personal distancing to keep all members safe.
