In Memoriam

Cecil Richard Davis Sr.

1942 – 2015

 

Cecil R. Davis passed away on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at the age of 72. Cecil was born and raised in Chiefland, Florida and became a lifelong resident of Ocala, Florida in 1965. Cecil was a US Army veteran. Since 1986, Cecil served as the General Manager of the Ranger Drainage District located in the Wedgefield Community of Central Florida. Cecil was a champion and best friend of our community and under his care and guidance the District infrastructure has been enhanced and completely rebuilt. Cecil maintained the highest levels of professionalism and has made Ranger Drainage District into one of the preeminent Special Districts in the State of Florida. Cecil was admired and respected by his staff and the governmental agencies he interacted with including the Army Corps of Engineers, St. John Water Management, Environmental Protection Agency and many Orange County Departments. His knowledge, support and friendship will be missed by all of us in Wedgefield.

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, July 18th  ~ 8am to 12pm

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 MAY to the present date of JUNE 15, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics we have had three auto burglaries TWO in the 25 to 2600 block of ABALONE and ONE in the 2100 Block of ALBION and ONE Residential Burglary in the 19000 block of LANSDOWN. Additionally, I have had face book reports of 12 auto burglaries in the gated Reserve but as of now no addresses.

 

Auto burglaries continue to be the crime of choice here in Wedgefield because they are so easy – people just do not or forget to lock their cars. Remember if you do not lock your car it will be visited and if you leave a valet key it will go for a ride.

 

This year we will again celebrate NHW NIGHT OUT with ice cream in the park, balloons and face painting for the kids on Tuesday AUGUST 4th. Be sure and mark your calendars as we expect a record number of participants this year due to the Face Book Neighborhood Watch membership.

Citizens On Patrol

With summer here it’s hard to think of anything else but getting away and relaxing. But before you go on your well deserved vacation, here are a few tips and reminders that will help keep your home safe and less of a target when you are away.

 

A Week Before You Leave…

 

Ask a neighbor to watch your home and provide them with emergency contact information.

Arrange to have your mail held at the post office or have a trusted neighbor pick it up daily.

Arrange to have your newspaper stopped or picked up by a neighbor.

Make arrangements to have the lawn mowed while you’re away.

Do not hide cash or jewelry in the home. Consider putting valuables in a safe. Make sure

you have secured outside things such as bicycles and lawn items. Unsecured items are

easy targets.

 

Contact Victor Alzona with Citizens on Patrol to request a vacation watch on your

property.

 

Contact Phil Unser with Neighborhood Watch to also keep an eye on your property.

Calling All Green Thumbs

The Garden Club met on Thursday June 4th, in the Country Club meeting room, at 11:00. Connie Shepard prepared a program on terrariums. She showed the steps to assemble a terrarium: Add charcoal to purify water and provide filtration, Add half of an orchid mix for drainage and aeration, Add soil formulated for terrariums, Add moist moss, Add gravel, then larger rocks and a decorative accent. Now it is time to add the plants! Make a slit in the moss and insert your plant. The base of the plant should line up with the top of the moss. Add the orchid mix around the plant avoiding the rocks, now it is time to water. Spray the sides to remove dirt, but do not overwater! The moist moss is enough moisture to sustain it’s ecosystem.

Our next meeting will be July 2nd. Rosemary Curtis has made plans to have a program from
Rockledge Gardens, possibly on Hydroponic culture. Come join the Green Thumb garden club
for another interesting and informative topic.

2015

 

June Yard of the Month

 

The pictures do not do justice to the lovely yard of Pete and Mildred Beltren! The Beltren’s have lived in Wedgefield since 1991, this is their 2nd home. They have a rose garden in the back yard. Tropical fruit trees, too. They do have trouble with deer eating their roses and other plants. Please come see for yourself, this lovely yard at 19500 Paddock street, our June Yard of the Month!


Two other yards deserve mentioning. 3770 Calvert had an overgrown lot, but lots of color.
3302 Coronet Ave is a hidden gem on a cul de sac, well landscaped, but needs more color.

Firewise Communities

 

It is with great sadness, that Wedgefield Firewise acknowledges the recent death of their member, Cecil Davis. Cecil was involved when Firewise was just a concept and helped promote it in the community. In 2001, he encouraged a number of Wedgefield residents and agencies to join together to be a part of this program and Wedgefield became 1 of 3 communities in Florida to adopt the program and the only one in Orange County. With Cecil’s assistance, we were able to create firebreaks and install draft hydrants to protect the community during wildfires, most of which were done at no cost to the community. Cecil was tireless in speaking to other communities and elected officials promoting the Firewise program. His dedication to this program and the community of Wedgefield will be missed.

Lunch and Movie

Eleven years ago Jan Berglund and Sylvia Cox organized a “Lunch & Movie Group”. Every Tuesday 10 to 14 girls gather at different local restaurants and then attend the latest movies. Sometimes we hit the shops after the movie.

Last month we dined at “Longhorn’s Steak House”, “Outback”, “Olive Garden”, “Ruby Tuesday’s, “Cheddars” and “T.J. Seafood Restaurant”.The movies we enjoyed were “San Andreas”, “Pitch Perfect”, “Far From The Maddening Crowd” and “Aloha”.

If you are interested in a group that is full of fun and never a dull moment. All you have to do is e-mail janetberglund@bellsouth.net or sylviathad@att.net.

REMEMBER: It is true we have only one life to live, if we go to the movies, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

The tables were lovely with 6 May flower baskets that Dulce had put together. Sherrie had made potpourri for all of the “Red Hatters”. Isabella and Arlinda had candies for everyone to bring home.
 

We had a visitor (Barbara) Jan’s guest that was visiting her. They went to Nursing School together. Janis Thaw and Donna Powers decided to join our “Red Hatters’. They enjoyed it so much that they want to be one of us.
 

The door prizes were won by Ann Breazzano, Helen Unser, Isabella Asgill and Nancy Stickrod. The birthday girls were Sherrie, Dulce, Janice and Arlinda. They each went home with one of the lovely baskets.

 

On June 19th the hostesses will be Lillie Douglass, Ruth Oliver, Martha Bradford and Helen Unser. We will be heading to “Kobe’s Japanese Restaurant”. The doors open at 12:00 noon.

WEDGEFIELD ACTIVITIES

We have many activities in Wedgefield. We have 50 “Red Hatters” in the “Classy Red Had Group”. Some of us belong to another Huggable’s Red Hat Group. There are 16 active members.We have several “Book Clubs” and Rosemary Curtis is trying to get another one started.


We have a “Green Thumb Garden Club”, Janice Thaw is President and we have had as many as 22 members.
 

We try to attend all of the activities at the Wedgefield Country Club. We have a “Lunch and Movie Group” that meet weekly, we have had as many as 20 especially when we celebrate Birthdays.
 

The most important activity we have in Wedgefield is the “Red Hat Prayer Group”.
We have 50 “Red Hatters”” praying for all of their family, friends and neighbors.
 

Sylvia sends cards to those in need; we try to visit friends that are sick.

REMEMBER: “Friends are the most collectibles”

 


“A Hat Statement”
 

A Hat speaks for a woman as she enters a room.
A Big Hat with a stately crown and a wide brim
speaks of courage and self-assurance.
A Small Hat – a beret, a pillbox or a pretty hat with lots of lace
speaks of patience and charm.
A Hat is a smile, or shows determination;
It expresses a mood for its wearer.
A Hat speaks volumes before a word is spoken.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

CERT UPDATE

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.
 

CERT = PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE
