Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, Oct 25  ~ 8am to 12pm

South Econ Park 3800 S. Econlockhatchee Trail, Orlando 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.

Note from the President

WEDGEFIELD SCHOOL: 

The next community meeting for the Wedgefield K8 School is scheduled for September 30, 2014 at 6:00PM.  The meeting is at the East River High School.  This is an important meeting where concerned individuals will have an opportunity to ask questions that are related to the school.  I realize that there are differing views and concerns about the school.  There are residents that are opposed to the school and residents that are supportive of the school and everyone is entitled to their opinion.  We need to recognize that fact and respect everyone’s opinion. This is why it’s important for everyone to attend the meeting, ask your questions and let the School Board officials know what your opinion is – are you opposed or supportive of the school?

 

The WHOA is still in the process of attempting to collect accurate and factual information concerning the Wedgefield School. We are waiting to get the right information from the School Board and from the County Commissioners office.  Once we get the information we will publish what “their” responses are.  Stay tuned…

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 AUGUST to Present date of SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports there was ONE Residential Burglary in the 2900 block of BANCROFT. Also we had a vehicle stolen from the 2300 Block of ARCHER Blvd.

 

I had a report that a vicious dog attacked another dog being walked on Alabaster. Residents are reminded a dog must be leashed if off your property and if on your property the dog must be controlled.

 

We continue to be blessed with low crime statistics and that is due to everyone looking out for each other and the crooks know it.

 

On a SAD NOTE Captain Brett Meade (who just spoke at our last HOA meeting) retired Friday the 12th and word has it that he will be heading to UCF as a Deputy Chief and we will miss him.

Florida extends ‘move over’ law to sanitation, utility workers
July 15, 2014

 

Tallahassee, FL – Florida legislators have expanded the state’s Move-Over Act to include protections for workers who operate or ride in or on sanitation and utility service vehicles.
The law, which requires motorists to move over or slow down for emergency vehicles or tow trucks that are stopped along the side of the road, was amended to include garbage and recycling trucks, as well as vehicles that are clearly marked for electric, natural gas, water, wastewater, cable, telephone or communications services. The change went into effect July 1.
On roads with two or more lanes, motorists are required to vacate the lane closest to the stopped service vehicle if they may safely do so. If changing lanes is not an option, motorists are required to slow down 20 mph below the posted speed limit. If the speed limit is 20 mph or less, motorists are required to travel at 5 mph.


Violators could face a $30 fine and up to $124 in court costs.

They are both retired and Janis still stays active in several garden clubs around Orlando. Janis also works on her property doing 95% of all the mowing, weeding, trimming, etc. They have 7 acres, with a stocked lake, and a menagerie of animals which include a horse, a peacock, ducks and swans.

Firewise Communities

 

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) chose “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!” as the theme for Fire Prevention Week 2014 (October 5-11). .
 

“Smoke alarms can make a life-saving difference in a fire, but they need to be working. “Unfortunately, many home fire deaths result from fires where a smoke alarm is present but does not operate. This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme focuses on motivating people to test their smoke alarms each month to make sure they’re working properly,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy
 

According to NFPA statistics:
Having a working smoke alarm in the home cuts the risk of dying in a fire in half.
On average each year, three out of five home fire deaths result occur in fires where there are either no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
In one-quarter (23 percent) of the home fire deaths, smoke alarms were present but did not sound.

The restaurants we enjoyed during the months of August and September were: "Logan’s", "Too-Jay’s", "Chili’s", and "Goodfellows".

We have seen some great movies; "The Giver", "If I Stay", "Guardian of the Galaxy", "When the Game Stands Tall", and "The November Man".

If you are interested in joining us for a movie or luncheon call Jan Berglund (407) 568-3313 oe Sylvia Cox (407) 568-2410.

Cox.
 

See you in all of the familiar places – Sylvia
REMEMBER: You are only young once, after that, you have to think of another excuse.


 

BUNCO


Bunco is one of the most exciting games in Wedgefield. We have been playing since January. There are usually 4 tables and occasionally 5 tables. There are 4 players at each table. If we are playing with an odd amount of girls, we assign a “ghost” to someone. The partner of the “ghost” will keep score for the “ghost”.


The head table controls the pace of the games. Each table has score cards and 3 dice and the scorekeeper at that table has a scorecard. One person at the table will take the three dice and roll them. We play 18 rounds. If you are on one round and get all one’s you yell “Bunco”. The one with the most Buncos wins and the most wins is a winner and the one with the most losses will win and there is a drawing so everyone has a chance to win.


We play the last Monday of the month at the Wedgefield Golf and Country Club so if you are interested, call Joan Smith (321) 222-8706 or Sylvia Cox (407) 568-2410. It is easy to play and lots of fun.


REMEMBER: Live your life and forget your age!

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.
