Welcome to the Wedgefield Homeowners Association

LOST PETS

My cat, Hezekiah, got out from the enclosure early this morning. He is about 12 lbs and answers to Hezekiah or Heze. He is a house cat so I really need to find him. He is neutered and is up-to-date on all his shots. Please contact Cassandra Wilds at 502-767-9972. My address is 2566 Ballard Avenue, 32833.

Thank you!

FOUND PETS

FOUND DOG

4/6/2015

My husband picked up a dog after almost getting struck by a car on Dallas. 


 
Please call for where he is being cared for.

 
Thank you

 
Jen & Armando

 

Found dog on 3/5/2015
He appeared on Starry Street and now found his way to Somerset Street.

He is a very sweet dog.
Black - perhaps part shepherd
Has a small brown spot at the base of his body near his tail.
Didn’t want to risk him getting hit on Starry, Bancroft or Dallas so i have given him temporary shelter. I already have a dog and therefore cannot shelter him long term.
Please call us at 407-568-4420


Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, May 16th  ~ 8am to 12pm

South Econ Community Park

3800 S Econlockhatchee Trail
Orlando, FL

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.

Note from the President

Dear Friends & Neighbors,
 
I hope this message finds you and your family doing well. One thing that I believe is that change is one of the certainties of life and after years as quiet Wedgefield with little or nothing happening, well things they are a changing.

There are currently at least ten home builders with active construction in either or both the city and the estate sections of our community and several have more than one home underway.

The Ranger Drainage District has a couple of projects underway; the Lake 11A project on Seaview Street will be completed by May with properties having an attractive lake view. Also the storm water relief project from Abalone Blvd and Yam Street around the commercial property and down Macon Parkway will begin by the first week in April.

The Family Dollar Store project, at Maxim Parkway and State Road 520, will begin the third week of March and should be completed in about sixteen weeks. Also watch for a notice from Pluris of an informational meeting about some upcoming construction between the water plant
and Maxim Parkway.

The good news is it appears that our property values are on the rebound. Have a great month and come see us at the WHOA Meeting on April 8th at 7:00 pm in the Golf Clubhouse.    

Mike

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 MARCH to the present date of APRIL 15, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics we have had one auto burglary in the 19500 block of Somerset and 2 Residential Burglaries 1 in the 18,500 block of Starry Street and 1 in the 3500 block of Dallas.
 

I am happy to say that after some discussion, one of our residents was able to create a Wedgefield NHW page in Face Book and it has been busy with lots of good information. Current membership exceeds 225 individuals that are concerned with our security here in Wedgefield. The post that dealt with the residential burglary on Starry Street was listed on Face Book. The post was made by an individual that is like me new to Face Book and obviously is not aware of our NHW procedures where we call the appropriate OCSO number 911 if it is in progress or (407) 836 4357 if it is over with or suspicious and then me at 407-679-6644 (24/7).
 

The quote is as follows: “New to group but wanted to make everyone aware of two recent burglaries one starry street on Easter and one last night. 3 black males in a small U-Haul and a maroon Cadillac as look out….” Subsequent posts include a partial license for the U-Haul and it was an Arizona tag beginning with AE. (NOTE- only one burglary reported on Starry not 2 as stated in the post).


If any of the suspects are observed remember – no confrontation just call the appropriate numbers: 911 then me at (407) 679-6644.

Citizens On Patrol

Can I Park here or there?
 

When I am out on patrol I sometimes see vehicles parked in violation of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and I may issue a courtesy ticket (warning ticket with no fine) to let the vehicle owner know that they are in violation.

 
Occasionally the owner may see me writing a courtesy ticket and they may ask me if they can park here or there? My answer will depend on the parking violation I observe and the situation. The majority of the vehicle owners I have spoken with are not aware of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and are happy to get an explanation from me of why they are in violation of the ordinance. The majority of the vehicle owners are happy to quickly remedy the situation to prevent a parking ticket.
 

During my patrols I have noticed that the majority of the parking violations in Wedgefield are due to vehicles parked on or blocking sidewalks and vehicles parked on or blocking the bicycle lane / path.

Calling All Green Thumbs

The Spring or Vernal Equinox came on March 20th, so we are in the first month of Springtime in Wedgefield. The Green Thumb Garden Club met on April 2nd in the Country Club meeting room. Connie DeVries presented the program on Fern’s that grow well locally and Garden ornaments.  A bottle tree was one ornament that was very interesting. Connie brought 2 potted Kimberly ferns for door prizes.
 
Next month, Rosemary Curtis is preparing a program possibly on “Gardening for Butterflies”. It is a work in progress, so whatever the subject we will be pleased.  Make plans to attend on May 7th! We look forward to seeing you there. The clubhouse makes great lunches and we hope you can stay for lunch.

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.

 

2015

 

April Yard of the Month

 

Once again, we have started the Yard of the Month in Wedgefield.  The Spring flowers have given us quite a few yards from which to choose a winner.  April’s winner is Maria Black, 2984 Lyndscape, in the reserve.  She came to Wedgefield from Michigan where she retired from Nursing. She has been in Wedgefield for 10 years.  What caught our eyes, this month, was the use of color in her front yard. Just to name a few, she grows many orchids, one of which is called a Poor Man’s orchid, which intrigued the judges. Also, she has Angel Trumpets, Yellow and Red Crown of Thorns.  She has a lot of success with pineapple, but those were in the back yard where her porch has a view of a lake.  There are three honorable mentions at the following addresses, which deserve a drive-by when you are out. 2612 Pine Glen and 2828 Regency Oak, in the reserve and 9328 Mardi Gras.

SAFE GRILLING HINTS FROM NFPA

June and July are peak months for summer grilling fires. Grilling season is a great time of year for friends and families to have cookouts and tailgate, but before starting the season, be sure your grill is working properly and review safety tips, said Lorraine Carli, vice president of Outreach and Advocacy of NFPA.  Propane gas hose leaks or breaks were the leading factors contributing to gas grill fires.  It is good practice to check for damage before using it for the first time each year and to clean and check the entire grill regularly.

According to a 2013 NFPA report on cooking equipment fires, gas grills were involved in an annual average of 7200 home fires if 2007 - 2011, while charcoal or other solid-fueled grills were responsible for an annual average of 1400 home fires.  While gas grills contribute to a higher of home fires, overall than their charcoal counterparts, NFPA reminds everyone that all types of grills pose a risk for fires and burn injuries.  More than one-quarter (27 percent) of home structure grill fires started on a courtyard, terrace or patio, while 29 percent started on an exterior balcony or open porch and six percent began in the kitchen, according to the report.

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies

On the 20th of March thirty “Red Hatters” descended on the Red Lobster restaurant. The hostesses were Jackie Miner, Joanne Cobbs and Martha Jo Simpkins. They did a beautiful job decorating, it was St. Patrick’s theme and there was a lot of green. Each “Red Hatter” took home candies. There was a green balloon for the birthday girls, Ann Breazzano, Norma Hallberg, Theresa Jones and Sylvia Cox. Red Lobster also gave each birthday girl a delicious chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and they took the time to sing to each one of us. Ann Breazzano brought her daughter Roseann to our “Red Hat” luncheon. It was a lovely luncheon and everyone had a sweet time.

One of our “Red Hatters”, Jackie Miner’s husband Jim came in 1st place in the Car Show in February.

In March Sylvia Cox won a trophy at the Academy Awards party at Terry Steinke’s home. She had 11 correct answers out of 14 Academy Awards winners.

April is our 11th anniversary for the Classy Ladies. Our next luncheon will be on the 17th of April at “Amigo’s at Waterford Lakes at 11:30. We were going to Beef O’Brady’s but the new restaurant has not opened yet. Our hostesses will be Doris Bain, Jean Terry and Alta Deevers.

See you there.

REMEMBER: Be generous with your stuff, once you are gone somebody else is going to get it anyway!


NEIGHBORHOOD PICNIC

On March 14th there was a Neighborhood Picnic at our Mansfield Park that started at 3:00 pm and a lot of people did not leave until after 10:00 pm.

We thank Janis Thaw and Sylvia Cox for spearheading this great event and also Joel Thaw, Pam DiMarzio, Evelyn Perez, Megan Elizabeth, Vanda Mueller and Caryn McGraw for all of their expertise.

There were approximately 200 men, women and children having a great time visiting one another and they brought enough chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, appetizers and desserts to feed an army.

We thank the Orange County Parks and Recreation for furnishing a movie (Lego) for the parents and their children to watch. Everyone said that there had not been a Neighborhood Picnic in years and so we are going to organize another one in November.

Thanks to everyone that brought food and stayed until dark to visit with their neighbors.

REMEMBER: When you stand before God at the end of your life, I would hope that you would not have a bit of talent left and that you used everything that was given to you!


“HUGGABLE’S RED HATTERS”

On April 1st ten of us went to “Woody’s BarBQ restaurant in Cocoa (old Corky Belle’s site). We enjoyed Carolina Pork and all of the sides. Saw some of our “Silly Sassy Sisters” in there and got to visit with them. Then we went to the Planetarium at the Eastern Florida State College. We enjoyed the amazing Universe, we took a roller coaster ride across the universe, we zoomed past planets, watched the birth and death of stars, flew through a black hole. The tour included a tour of the evening stars. Then we saw a show about the mysteries of Egypt, thrilling flight over the Nile, the world’s longest river.

Joan Smith is the Queen of the group, Jan Berglund is the Vice Queen, Sylvia Cox and Karyl Ralston are on the Advisory Board. Our hostesses were Kathy Evans and Roberta Frost. The door prizes were won by Joan Smith and Karyl Ralston.

On the 1st of May the “Huggables” are heading to Kobe’s restaurant at 11:30 on Colonial Drive. The hostesses will be Jackie Miner and Karyl Ralston

See you in all of the familiar places – Sylvia

REMEMBER: The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

CERT Training


On Saturday October 11th, 21 members of the Wedgefield CERT group met with Mr. Jack Tracy of the Florida Health Department who is in charge of the Orange County Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP). Mr. Tracy introduced the team to Mr. Jim Mauney and his wife Kim. Mr. Mauney is a Professional Trainer who has trained Firemen, Law Enforcement Personnel as well as numerous CERT groups and Kim is a Certified EMT who is currently employed by the Corrections Department.
 

Mr. Mauney went into detail about the various parts of a NEPP and CERT components from the Incident Command thru the teams in the field and how they all blend together. He led the attendees through a simulated tornado in Wedgefield in a table top exercise and then explained how good record keeping is extremely helpful to the Fire Department personnel and other professional responders. He put the attendees through some very interesting team building exercises and worked on radio communication procedures.
 

The entire day was interesting, informative and motivating. This is just one more part of the training that the volunteers do so that they are ready to help their neighbors and the other residents of Wedgefield in the event of a disaster.
