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.

The Wedgefield community is diverse in both age and culture and offers a great atmosphere for enjoying the natural beauty and great weather of Central Florida.

We encourage you to visit Wedgefield and have lunch at the Club House and get to know some of the people that call Wedgefield Home.

Our Next General Meeting is on Wednesday, December 10th at 7:00 PM at the Wedgefield Golf and Country Club.

Your neighbors would like to invite you to join our Homeowner's Association:

Wedgefield School News by the Wedgefield School Exploration Committee

 

THREE CHEERS FOR THE NEW WEDGEFIELD SCHOOL

 

After approximately 8 years of planning, Wedgefield is about to get its own K–8 elementary & middle school. This is extremely exciting and a very positive move forward for our community. This means that the children in the community will no longer have to endure 40 minute bus rides to either Columbia Elementary or to Corner Lakes Middle school, nor will they have to sit 3 across on the bus ride. They can spend that extra time with their family. After all, aren’t we a family friendly community?

 

The school will be a state of the art facility that will benefit every child in Wedgefield. We also know that a good school is on the top of most people’s list when it comes to purchasing a house. People will want to buy in Wedgefield because of the school and that will increase everyone’s property value. The Orange County School Board has also done an excellent job of adapting the property to be used to keep the school as unobtrusive as possible to the community as a whole and maintain as much environmentally sensitive land as possible.  The School Board is also doing everything they can to make sure they are a good neighbor.

Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, Nov 8th  ~ 8am to 12pm

1300 Fort Christmas Rd, Christmas FL

 

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.

Bayanihan at Wedgefield

We had a relaxing and refreshing camping trip this past weekend at Tomoka State Park at Ormond Beach. With the Bayanihan spirit, our tents were up in no time. We had a sumptuous feast at every meal (fresh steamed fish, skewered pork BBQ, cassava suman, fresh vegetables, home made longanisa, scrambled eggs, omelette, sunny side up, fluffy pancakes, chicken adobo, special pirurutong and kutsinta, etc) prepared by our chefs. Most of all, the company was great!

Highlights of the trip included a fishing expedition headed by Tito Ric and Tito Angel, the maiden voyage of Tito Ric's fishing boat at the Tomoka/Halifax River, hiking on the nature trail, surf fishing at the crack of dawn, a visit to the beautiful Andy Romano Beachfront, and roasting marshmallows at the eternal bonfire. The weather was a perfect 72 degrees during the day and 57 at night, a reprieve from our Orlando rainy season.

Thank you to the Arriola, Dinlasan, Gandola, Obleada, Tobillo, and Toves families for making our camping trip a success! Hope to see more of our Bayanihan family next time!

Note from the President

Neighborhoods are reflections of the residents that live there. How our neighborhood looks, feels, and even smells is dependent upon who lives there. Most potential homeowners will drive through a neighborhood to consider whether or not to invest in a home. They look for broken down vehicles, the general appearance of homes, are the roadways cluttered, are the lawns maintained, and are the fences in disrepair.

 

We need to remember that what we do as individuals will affect others. We should be considerate of our neighbors and give them the respect they deserve. This association strives to maintain a neighborhood the people can take pride in.

 

You may wonder what we on the WHOA Board do. The majority of what we do is neighbor driven. In most circumstances, someone has lodged a complaint or has brought forth a neighborhood issue that needs resolution. As volunteers we do the best we can to help resolve all neighborhood issues and/or conflicts.  As our guide, we use the Deed Restrictions and the Codes and Covenants that we are entrusted to enforce.

 

A current issue that has been brought to our attention are the "Save Wedgefield" signs that are being posted throughout our community.  We have received numerous complaints from residents and even from Realtors that are trying to sell homes and property in Wedgefield.  Signs on the public right-of-way are prohibited by Orange County Code and other signs are governed by the WHOA Codes and Covenants.  See Below:

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

During the last half of SEPTEMBER to Present date of OCTOBER 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports there was ONE Residential Burglary in the 19500 block of SABAL ST. Also a 20 YO female stole a fire arm causing a massive search at 1 AM near ALABASTER and ABNEY. A Builder reported copper being stolen from his 5 building sites on the same evening. And lastly I had a telephone report of gun shots hitting a home on Ralston.

 

As we start the Holiday season I am reminded of the 12 Don’ts of Christmas– they still work, and for many of us have worked all year.

 

1.      Don’t become distracted when shopping

2.      Don’t carry a purse or wallet in a careless manner

3.      Don’t carry cash or valuables not needed (sometimes a credit card is all you need)

4.      Don’t overload yourself with packages

5.      Don’t park in dark or unpopulated areas

6.      Don’t ignore strangers as they approach you

7.      Don’t leave your car unlocked

8.      Don’t shop with children without a plan if separated

9.      Don’t forget to arrange for mail and paper if leaving town

10.  Don’t leave your home looking vacant

11.  Don’t leave your home door or garage door open or unlocked

12.  Don’t let holiday stress keep you from enjoying the season

 

And I will add on more - DON’T put your tree and all the gifts in the front window for all to see

Calling All Green Thumbs

 

Our Green Thumb Garden Club meeting was held on Thursday October 2nd. Our hostess was Sylvia Cox. Her program was on Fall Flowers. Our leader, Dulse Rodrigues started the meeting by recognizing first time visitors. We welcomed Laura Aviela, Norma Butcher and Rosemary Curtis. Joan Smith came especially by invitation, on this day.
 

The Landscaping of the new school was discussed. The school will have 52 acres to be filled with trees. The Garden Club may take on the mission of helping with the Landscaping. Sylvia Cox began her program handing out monthly gardening plans put out by the Extension Service. She told us to “talk to your plants”. She said if we don’t pay attention to them, they will die. Sylvia also said to, “Water at the toes rather than the nose or the clothes”. Several Mums plants were door prizes, as well as basil plants and leaves, and also many lily plants were brought to give out.
 

November 6th we will meet again at the Country Club meeting room. Martha Bradford will be our hostess for a program on Holiday plants. Come and join us at 11:00am!

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.

 

October Yard of the Month

 

Judges for the Yard of the Month went to the gated community on October 2nd. We were pleased to find a very nice yard at 2838 Regency Oak Lane. Recently, this house was the home of Mary Lou Thomas, a former Garden Club member. She sold the home to Sherry DeMay, who gives all the credit of the beautiful plantings to Mary Lou. Ruth Cox has been in contact with Mary Lou and she had this to say about her garden, “I have had a love affair with Japan since living in the orient 30 years ago.” She had a Japanese lantern in what she called her “Japanese place”, it had a flameless candle that came on at night. Her son, Jeff, became interested in her Angel Trumpet plant and brought a start from South Florida. She enjoyed watching it bloom almost non-stop. She also said, “I’ve always loved the Bougainvillea plant as we had them growing all over the walls of our Condo in Belize. When I started growing them in Orlando, I didn’t have much luck with them blooming, but discovered from a friend, I was not giving enough fertilizer. Much to my surprise, it started blooming after a couple months.” She also has a Bird of Paradise, which is blooming now. Mary Lou Thomas is now living in the Atlanta area, to be near her children.

Others homes we wish to honor are 19604 Glen Elm, 19337 Timber Pine Lane and 19113 Timber Pine Lane.

Firewise Communities

 

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK


Thank you to everyone for your participation and support of the Annual Fall Festival this year.  We hope you enjoyed having the addition of vendors for early holiday shopping.   Every year it just gets better.  A special thank you to all the volunteers who started working months in advance to make this a success and those who helped during the event.

 

For several months now, we have been telling you that the Florida Forest Service had gotten a grant of $12,000.00 for mitigation/fuel reduction in the Wedgefield area.  We had hoped to start work on this in late September.  Each landowner that would be affected by the clearing of a Ranger Drainage District easement was notified prior to work starting.  Some landowners felt it was an encroachment on their property and privacy and protested the clearing.  Over the next two months, we will be looking at different areas in the community where fuel reduction would be beneficial to homeowners and the community.  Each landowner affected will be contacted in advance of any clearing.  Please understand the fuel reduction is a way to protect your home and property when a wildfire is occurring in the area.  This has been a relatively dry season so there is a lot of fuel on the ground and as we move into winter with even less rain the danger will only increase.

 

SANTA WILL BE AT THE FIRE STATION ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13TH FROM 1 PM TO 3 PM

Free Photos with Santa.  Refreshments will be provided.  Tour the station, meet the local firefighters, learn about fires and fire prevention.  Join Wedgefield Firewise and Wedgefield HomeOwners Association as once again we sponsor a free event at the Wedgefield Fire Station at 3202 Babbitt Avenue.

 

Again, thank you for your support of our efforts and we look forward to meeting you at one of our events.

 

Mary Prescott, President

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies

 

On September 19th our “Red Hatters” gathered at “Chili’s”. we had never been there as a “Red Hat” group. It was nice and cozy and the service was great. Connie Shephard, Paula Harris and Theresa Jones were the hostesses.
 

There were 22 “Red Hatters” and the door prizes were won by Terry Steinke, Dottie Kaiser and Isabella Asgill. The hostesses gave everyone a Lucky Bamboo plant to take home to care for.
 

Carol Crosby is back with us, she has been caring for her husband and now will rejoin us. We celebrated Ruth Oliver’s birthday, she received a birthday hat, horn and red beads.
 

On October 17th we are heading to the “Great Outdoors” in Titusville. Nancy Stickrod, Rosemary Wolfe, Dottie Kaiser and Sylvia Cox will be the hostesses. A few of the “Red Hatters” have never been there so they are looking forward to it. We are planning on having dessert for everyone.
 

On November 21st we are heading to “Macaroni Grill”, the hostesses are Colleen Wollam, Carol Crosby, Eleanor McGill and Mary Ann Kiser.
 

See you in all the familiar places, Sylvia.
 

REMEMBER: We get better looking wrinkles from laughing than from frowning.

 


“The Huggable Red Hatters”
 

Joan Smith, one of our “Classy Red Hatters” has organized her own Red Hat Group. She will remain with us but wanted to start one in Mims, Fl. She is the “Queen”, Jan Berglund is the “Vice Queen”. Sylvia Cox and Kareyl Ralston are on the Advisory Committee.
 

Our first luncheon was in September and it was in Oak Hill at the “Goodrich Restaurant” on the Indian River. In October we are going to “Grandpa’s Steak House” in Cocoa. November we are heading to “Lone Cabbage” for frog legs, catfish and gator tails and to ride the airboats. We are having our Christmas party at “Dixie Crossroads”, will have entertainment by the “Bed Pan Band”. They sing familiar songs such as “Under the Boardwalk”, “Sugar Pie Honey”, “Sherry” and “I got you babe”.
 

Next year we are planning on playing Bingo and Bunco and going to “Victoria’s”, “Lord Have Mercy” restaurant in Titusville, “Willow Tree” in Sanford, “Stetson Mansion” in DeLand, “Cheddar’s”, “Mama Rosa’s”, “Cracker Jack’s” in Titusville on the Indian River, having a Valentine party with tea and small desserts and small sandwiches at the Mims Methodist Church, “New York, New York”, “The Great Outdoors” and “Royal Oaks Golf and Country Club”, “Wedgefield Golf and Country Club” and many other places.
 

We are all looking forward to dining at all of these places. Happy Hatters.

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.
