Welcome to the Wedgefield Homeowners Association

Wedgefield is a Friendly and Peaceful Golf, Equestrian Community located in Orlando Florida. The Beauty of Wedgefield is it's laid back environment where golf carts and horses are used for transportation almost as much as cars.

We are looking for retired or non-retired professionals who are available to meet one-on-one and/or in small groups for 15 to 30 minute increments. Mentors are expected to meet with our students on a bi-weekly basis during school hours (7:15 – 2:12).

November 2, 2015

I have received many inquiries about the new school and would like to share information about the most common question. Are we still on schedule and when will a new Principal be selected? Yes we are on schedule.


Selection of a Principal- When a new school is opened the process is different from when
a principal is selected for an existing school. The position will be advertised after the first
of the year. The Superintendent will select the person that best fits the needs of the K-8 school.


Once the new principal is selected, I will host a Meet and Greet for the community to meet him/her. Soon after members of the community will be able to serve on committees to plan for the opening of the school. The committees will choose the school mascot and school colors. The committee will also be responsible for coming up with three names for the school and allowing community members to indicate their preference. The three names come to the School Board with the survey tally. The final decision on the name is the responsibility of the School Board.

Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, December 12th  ~ 8am to 12pm

8249 Buenavista Woods Blvd, Orlando, FL 32836

For further information call 407-254-9200.

This is a FREE program for all Orange County citizens designed to encourage residents to add trees to our environment. Adding trees to the landscape has many long-term benefits. Along with the obvious advantages of shade and beauty, trees provide oxygen, filter pollution, and create habitats for wildlife. In addition, trees replenish our lost tree canopy that has diminished due to storm damage, age, and development. Each county resident must provide proof of residency and will receive up to two trees while supplies last.

Neighborhood Watch

This Month Neighborhood Watch Information will continue to be published in an ongoing effort to keep our community informed on crime watch matters.

During the last half of OCTOBER to the present date of NOVEMBER 12, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics we have had auto tires slashed at 2 residences in the 2200 block of BABBITT AVENUE. And we had a total of 3 RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES, One in the 19500 block of STARRY ST and One in the 5800 Block of HAMPSHIRE AVE and one in the 19500 block of SOMERSET. We had one report of a pellet gun being shot into an open garage with no damage (not reported) and I had one report of a mail package being opened, contents taken and package returned to the mail box in the 18500 block of MOORGATE. Deputies called but resident was told not their problem call the post office.

We have seen this before but it needs repeating. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.

Citizens On Patrol

Wondering what you can do to prevent from becoming a victim? This month’s article will provide tips for protecting your home.


If you were locked out of your house, would you still be able to get in? Maybe you keep an unlocked window in the back, or a hidden key in your mailbox or on top of a window ledge?


You may think this is a good idea, but guess what? If you can break in, so can a burglar! One out of six homes will be burglarized this year. For a small amount of time and money, you can make your home more secure and reduce your chances of being a victim.



Did you know that in almost half of all completed residential burglaries, thieves simply breezed in through unlocked doors or crawled through unlocked windows.


· Make sure every external door has a sturdy, well installed dead bolt lock. Key-in-the-knob lock alone are not enough.

· Sliding glass doors can offer easy access if they are not properly secured. You can secure them by installing commercially available locks or putting a broomstick or dowel in the inside track to jam the door. To prevent the door being lifted off the track, drill a hole through the sliding door frame and the fixed frame. Then insert a pin in the hole.

· Lock double-hung windows with key locks or “pin” windows by drilling a small hole into a 45 degree angle between the inner and outer frames, then insert a nail that can be removed. Secure basement windows with grilles or grates.

· Instead of hiding keys around the outside of your home, give an extra key to a neighbor you trust.

· When you move into a new house or apartment, rekey the locks.

Calling All Green Thumbs


The Green Thumb Garden Club of Wedgefield met on 11/5 for an outing to Rockledge Gardens Farm for a program on Hydroponics. Aaron Raines was our instructor and one of the resident farmers at the Farm. Hydroponics is used when there is poor soil or nematodes and uses 1/10 the amount of water in soil culture. A tower system is one of the forms of water culture, it can be expensive, but more affordable if you do it yourself! The medium used can be Vertigrow, plastic pellets coconut fiber, or pine bark which is cheaper but must be finely ground 3/8 of an inch or below. Perlite is not used, as it develops algae. The pesticides and fungicides they use are Copper Fungicide, Insecticidal Soap, Bitanigarde and Neem oil for white fly.



After the program, we went to the Garden's and made our purchases, then met at a pizza parlor near the river, called Ryan's. Rosemary Curtis was the host of the program and she brought garden themed tools, for door prizes. It was a lovely time for all, lovely weather, somewhat hot in the sunshine but we spent most of the time in the shade.


Don't forget our Christmas program which will be at Adelaide Catania's house on Bancroft. Everyone who intends to go, must call 407-568-0282 and RSVP, by November 30th, also let her know what dish you are bringing. Bring a $15 dollar garden themed gift for the gift exchange, if you wish to participate. The date is Thursday the 10th of December, the second Thursday rather than our usual First Thursday.

Yard of the Month


Yard of the Month Program - Voting began in April, during the first week of the month. Judging will be done by 3 people on a criteria of the best yards viewed and voted on during the viewing time. A yard sign will be awarded to the winning yard. That sign will be picked up and presented to the next month's winner.




November Yard of the Month

November brings our Yard of the Month program to an end until next April.  The outstanding address to visit this month is 2794 Babbitt.  The owners are Carmen and Arthur Brown who have been Wedgefield residents since 2004. They moved from Germany, where Arthur retired from the military.  Looking for warmer weather, they decided on Florida.  Both are avid gardeners and Carmen oversees her yard every day.

And with the results, you will enjoy seeing roses, butterfly bush, vinca, mums, geraniums, cannas, amaryllis, gardenias, azalea, night jasmine, hibiscus and even has time for a vegetable garden.   Their yard must enjoy color all year long!

We enjoyed several other honorable mentions that you will find at the following addresses:  2514 Albion, 20477 Netherland, 20722 Melville and 2731 Abbey.

Firewise Communities



As we begin the holiday season with decorating the inside and outside of our homes, here are some facts from NFPA’s Fire Analysis and Research Division that should be considered:

Between 2009-2014, U. S. Fire Departments responded to an average of 210 home fires that started with Christmas trees per year.  These fires caused an average of 7 deaths, 19 injuries and $17.5 million in direct property damage annually.

On average one of every 31 reported home fires that began with a Christmas tree resulted in a death, compared to an average of 1 death per 144 total reported home fires.

Electrical problems were factors in 3 out of 10 home Christmas tree structure fires.

Two of every five (39%) home Christmas tree fires started in the living room, family room or den.


We want to thank the community for your support during the year 2015.  We hope that those you attended our workshops and nature walks found them informative and interesting.  Your donations allow us to do these with out a charge.  Thank you to those who have volunteered their time and efforts in helping us during the year.  As we prepare out plans for 2016, we are looking for Wedgefield residents to join our team to help us do even more in the community to educate people about wildfires and preparing for emergencies.   We are not asking for a commitment of attending every meeting but being available to assist as events come up.  We hope you will consider joining us.


Don’t forget that on December 5th, from 11 AM to 2 PM, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Wedgefield Fire Station.  Come meet the local firefighters and tour the Fire Station and enjoy free refreshments.

Again, the Firewise team wants to thank you for your support.  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Mary Prescott, Chair

Lunch and Movie


Every Tuesday 10 to 14 girls meet at local restaurants and attend the latest
movies. Some gals need to run errands so they skip the movies. In October and November we enjoyed “The Little Greek Restaurant”, “Duffy’s”, “Margarita’s”, “Cooper Hawk” and “Bahama Breeze”. The movies we enjoyed were “Sicario”, “The Martian”, “Burnt”, and “Our Brand of Crisis”.

Since I can only attend twice a month due to other obligations (the 2nd & 4th of the month) and Jan comes when she can and Nancy Stickrod attends every Tuesday religiously; it would be best if the new residents contact Nancy by e-mail: nstickrod@att.net. It is a fun loving group and you will enjoy the camaraderie. Thank you – Sylvia

REMEMBER: One day you will be just a memory for some people, do your best to be a Good one!

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies


On October 16th 45 Red Hatters descended at the “Blue Heron” restaurant at the Great Outdoors. Nancy Stickrod, Dottie Kaiser and Sylvia Cox were the hostesses. The food was great and the waitresses were top-notch.

We had 2 birthdays, Marilyn Eagen and Martha Bradford. They received a birthday hat, horn and red beads. Joan Smith, Carol Crosby and Bea Christensen won the Hostess gifts. We had 3 guest from the Silly Sassy Sisters group and 5 visitors from the Happy Hatters Red Hatters. Ann Breazzano won the door prize for having the most purple on, Ann Brown won for having the most red clothes and accessories on, Betty Eastmoor won for having the most lip sticks in her cosmetic bag and Lois Kiss for being married the most times. A great time was had by all.

On November 20th Linda Descheneaux, Nancy Adams, Nancy and Kelly Crosby are the hostesses at the Long Horn. On December 11th Colleen Wollam, Eleanor McGill and Mary Ann Kiser will be the hostesses. It will be a buffet for $17.00 at the Club House. Be sure to bring $17.00 in cash and a $15.00 Christmas gift if you want to receive one.

We still play Bunco on the last Monday of the month at the Club House. We had 6 tables last month. Judy Miller was the Big Winner. We have a Prayer Group and cards are sent out to those that need encouragement.

I have been the Queen of the Wedgefield Classy Red Hatters for 13 years. I have really enjoyed all of the activities and have gained lots of friendships and the camaraderie has been wonderful but at the end of this year I am stepping down as the Queen of the group and giving someone else a chance to step up to the plate. We have 4 members to every committee and I would suggest they pick a Queen for that luncheon. See you in all of the familiar places.

REMEMBER: Keep looking up, that is the secret of life.



Welcome New Red Hatter


Martha Cox joined us in August, she used to belong to a Red Hat group in Union Park but they disbanded. She lived on Dean Road for 19 years and then moved near Aloma Ave. and has been there for 4 years. She worked 20 years for Orlando Regional Medical Center but is now retired. She has 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. She has a daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren that live in Wedgefield. She loves to play Bingo and especially loves to play Bunco at our club house. Her 2 daughters also play and enjoy it. Martha loves the Red Hatters and enjoys going out to lunch. She always dresses the part in her red hat and purple clothes.

We welcome her.

If you just moved to Wedgefield, we would love nothing more than to be able to share with you the history of our community.

In the 1980’s Charlie Jazko was President of the Wedgefield Homeowners Association followed by Larry Lanigan, Adair Tobergte and John Bessler. In the early 1980’s the name was changed from Cape Orlando to Wedgefield. Cary Linden was President for 4 years. He was in real estate so he could promote the neighborhood. There was a monthly newsletter (Magnifer) and an active HOA. There was a bike club, swim club, infant swimming lessons, baby sitting co-op, children & adult softball league, neighborhood watch, garden club, men & women’s golf league, volley ball & soccer games. There was a lighted tennis court and a swimming pool. The WHOA sponsored parties.

Every August Neighborhood Watch Program in the County sponsored “National
Night Out” and Wedgefield participated in the event several times. Everyone turned the porch lights on and several times the WHOA closed Maxim Pkwy and everyone brought covered dishes and their chairs and we had bar-b-que. Sheriff Lawson Lamar and McGruff, the Crime Prevention Dog would whirl in via helicopter and land at the Park. In 1982 a Neighborhood Watch Program was established due to one of our neighbors getting shot by a burglar, he was looking after a friend’s home while he was on vacation, saw a stray vehicle in front of the house, rode his golf cart down the street to check it out, he went inside, was shot but survived. The burglars are serving life sentences for the crime. Sheriff Lamar and NHW Coordinator Marian Hultgreen advised us to organize the Watch Program. The first meeting was held at Sylvia Cox’s home. There were only 60 homes here so it was easier to interest residents to become Block Captains. We met regularly for training with Corporal Hultgreen as well as for an occasional social event. In 1986 the Sheriff’s Dept. had a series of seminars on 6 Saturday mornings. Wedgefield had more residents attending than any other community and that year there was an Appreciation Banquet at the Rio Pinar Country Club and we were at the top of the list in the number of attendees. Back then there were no e-mails, texting or facebook.

If you know of anything that is interesting or exciting about the history of our community, please contact sylviathat@att.net

Community Emergency Response Team



Wedgefield CERT was well represented at the annual “Hurricane Expo” on Saturday, June 6th at the Fairgrounds thanks to Cindy Bethoney, Howie Torres, Victor Alzona and Phil and Helen Unser. We were joined by a group from Apopka who had graduated in April. This year, the CERT booth was the first booth inside the doors so we had a crowd of people stop by for goodies (flashlights, whistles, band aid holders) and information.

We owe a big “Thank You” to Harwell “Quill” Quillian for constructing and hanging the doors on the shelves in the pavilion at the park. Thanks to him, much of our gear is now stored there under lock and key. This place was chosen because we will set up our command post in the park should we have a hurricane or other disaster.

We haven’t been given a start date for the next CERT training session so if anyone is interested in taking the course please contact Helen Unser at punser@cfl.rr.com. The course will take 3 hours a week for 6 to 8 weeks and will cover Light Search & Rescue, Light Fire Suppression, Medical Operations (assessment, treatment & hygiene), Disaster Operations (triage & treating life threatening injuries) and many other very useful skills.
