Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, July 12th ~ 8am to 12pm

Orange County Extension Education Center, 6021 S. Conway Road, Orlando, 32812

 

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.

Our female black lab Koko went missing this morning (4/16/14) near Bancroft and Quinella. She has some white on her face and a missing lower canine tooth. She was wearing two collars with tags when she got out of our yard but one or both may be missing now. She is microchipped. Koko is a very sweet dog and will likely run up to you if you call her. If you find her please tie her securely, she is an escape artist. We can be reached at (951)837-6261 or (951)837-6262.

April 16, 2014

 

Hello, we are visiting our parents when our dog escaped from the back yard. He's a 50 lb black and tan fox hound, very friendly, and answers to the name Loki. He should have a collar with my phone number in addition to his microchip.

Bayanihan at Wedgefield

Bayanihan at Wedgefield held its annual Easter Celebration at the Wedgefield Park with 80 members and friends in attendance. There were plenty of food, good company, and the children were all busy hunting for the eggs the Easter Bunny hid for them, a good time was found by all.

 

The afternoon was not only a day of good food and fun games, but a time to take care of business. Nominations were made and votes were cast to fill the open Auditor Position. Congratulations to Ms. Charito Noble on her election to the position. The 2014 officers were sworn in by one of the founders of Bayanihan at Wedgefield and past president, Ms. Emlyn Tobillo.

 

President Toves then opened the meeting with discussions and votes to finalize the events and activities scheduled for the remainder of 2014.

Note from the President

It’s obvious that summer is upon us, and now we have the much needed daily showers (storms).  My yard resembles a giant sponge that seems holds the water forever.  Two weeks went by before I could cut the grass and make it look half decent, and then I had to finish in the rain.  But I have to keep reminding myself that it was not that many months ago that I snickered frequently, in the evening, while watching the weather reports.  My thoughts were “those poor fools up north putting up with all that snow, ice and freezing weather”.  Guess it does not matter where you live, there are good things and bad things that you have to contend with.  Like watching my grass grow…

 

I’m pleased to announce that we have a new addition to the WHOA Board of Directors.  Mr. Mike Nolan agreed to complete the vacancy left open when our past vice-president, Anthony Grabowski, has to resign because of new job conflicts.  Mike will complete Anthony’s term to the end of this year.  Additionally, at our last Board Meeting we nominated Mike for vice-president and the vote was a unanimous YES.  I consider this to be a huge advantage for our Board and the community.  Mike also serves as one of the Supervisors on the Ranger Drainage District Board and will now be serving on or Board as well.  This will turn out to be a positive benefit for both organizations and will serve to unite the organizations and allow better communication and cooperation.  Welcome Mike next time you see him please.

Positive Words

My Thanksgiving Feast


As I feasted during Thanksgiving dinner, I was faced with the knowledge that others may not be as fortunate as I am. I know that there are people within my own 32833 zip code that may not have the means to nourish their bodies with a daily meal, yet alone a thanksgiving dinner. And there are others who do not have shelter to protect themselves during the cold of the night and call the open streets their home.


As I continued to feast fully knowing that half way around the world at the country of my birth, the Philippines, there were hundreds of thousands of displaced people living in make shift tents, waiting for days without food and water thanks to the most powerful natural disaster recorded to happen; Typhoon Haiyan.

Neighborhood Watch

Each 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 May to Present date of JUNE 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports there were TWO Residential Burglaries ONE in the 19800 block of Glen Elm (in the reserve) and ONE in the 19500 block of Quinella and ONE Auto Burglary in the 20200 block of Peabody.

I had the pleasure of meeting several of our residents who are members of our HOA while delivering the HOA Signs. I occasionally had difficulty finding certain addresses because of the lack of signage or poorly maintained signage. If I had trouble in broad day light you can imagine the problems law enforcement or the fire department will have at night.

Also remember we never open our doors unless we know who is there and if we do not want to do so we at least let them know you are home.  And if you are concerned you can yell, “HARRY GET THE GUN” even if HARRY does not live there.

During the past couple weeks I have had 2 reports of SUSPICIOUS VEHICLES and several reports of non road worthy or unlighted vehicles being driven by youngsters on our streets both day and night. REMEMBER for a non-licensed youth to drive a motorized vehicle on the street IT IS A FINEABLE OFFENCE AND THE NON EMERGENCY NUMBER SHOULD BE CALLED.

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.

 

July Yard of the Month

 

Judges chose a yard that depicts an English cottage style garden feeling. The address is 18754 Roberson and is owned by Kuong P. Deng.  A friend, Gary Martinelli,  was kind enough to show us around the various gardens, and give us background  on many of the plants.
 
Since they moved from Connecticut only 4 years ago, they have created some fabulous
landscaping in such a short time.  It’s a butterfly and hummingbird heaven with some of the following plants:  Mexican Sage, Passion Flowers, Dragon Vine, Rangoon creeper, various gingers, St. John’s vine, hot lips salvia, and Chinese pagoda.  They also have an extensive fruit and vegetable garden.
 
We had two honorable mentions at 18321 Robertson and 18938 Overton.  Also, there were two “fun” yards at 18738 Northrop and 18817 Mosby.

If you have four people in your family, you should store one gallon of water  X4 people X3 days = 12 gallons of water.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

During the past few months, some members of the Wedgefield C.E.R.T. have been participating in National Table Top Training Sessions and one thread in each session pointed out a short coming in our Wedgefield plan: In each session, a priority issue was to check on the handicapped, the disabled and the elderly. With over 6,000 residents in Wedgefield, we must have some people who fit within these categories. Before Hurricane Season begins, we need your help locating these residents!

 

Do you know of anyone in the community that is on oxygen, needs insulin for Diabetes, on dialysis, uses an aid for walking or has a Care Giver that comes to take care of them? We would like to know in confidence who they are, in case of an emergency. If we know where they are, we can be sure to get help to them as quickly as possible. This information would be kept to our team and would only be used in the event of a disaster in our community. If you are aware of anyone, please have them contact Helen Unser (407) 568-9659 or e-mail: punser@cfl.rr.com or Cindy Bethoney (732) 221-8370 or e-mail: cynebet@gmail.com.

 

The Office of Emergency Management will hold C.E.R.T. training at the City of Orlando, Emergency Operations Center, 110 North Andes Ave. Orlando, FL 32807 (behind City of Orlando Police training area, follow EOC arrows) starting on Tuesday April 22nd and on six consecutive Tuesdays through June 3rd. The classes will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with Graduation on Saturday June 7. Anyone interested should contact Cherie Boyce, (407) 836-9097 or e-mail: cherie.boyce@ocfl. This training will prepare one for handling emergency situations, medical operations, fire safety, utility/hazardous materials, light search & rescue, radio communications and much more.
