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:

“Private signs may never be placed within the public right-of-ways unless approved by Orange County. Signs may be removed without warning by County workers and those placing such signs are subject to fines. The county picks up over 100,000 signs each year.”

 

I will specify that the “Save Wedgefield” signs are not considered to be “political signs”.  If you are concerned about the presence of these signs, or any other illegally placed signs, be proactive and take some action.  If it’s your neighbor ask them to remove it.  Call Orange County Code Enforcement (407-836-3111) and report the violation and ask that the signs be removed.  If the signs are on private property call any of the WHOA Directors and report the address so we can take appropriate action.

Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, Dec 13th  ~ 8am to 12pm

8249 Buenavista Woods Blvd., 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

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:

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 OCTOBER to the present date of NOVEMBER 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics there have been 4 RESIDENTIAL burglaries 1 on SARMUNDHAM in the 19500 block; and 1 on MARDI GRAS in the 19500 block; 1 on QUINELLA in the 20500 block; and 1 on SABAL in the 18500. I got a call from the owner on SABAL and over 6K worth of jewelry, electronics, computers and a gun were stolen after doing several hundred dollars damage to the front door.

I recently got an e-mail from the Sheriff’s Office titled “See something Say something” that reminded us of the “BAG IT” recommendation from the Sheriff’s Office and it goes like this:

 

Something as simple as a Cloth Shopping Bag....and a habit – it goes like this “Make it a Habit!”-“Make it a Habit!” Put your Tablet, GPS, Phone, Your Lunch, CD's, Laptop, money, Keys etc. Anything of value you use every day and might leave in your car. Put it all Into a Bag take it with you to Work. When you get home...take it inside with you.” Make it a Habit!” to leave nothing of value in your car to attract attention. By removing pilferable items from our vehicles and locking up or parking in our garage we remove the opportunity for Crime.

Calling All Green Thumbs

 

Our Green Thumb Garden Club meeting was held on Thursday November 6th. Our hostess was Martha Bradford. Martha contacted the Orange County extension center for Jennifer Pelham to do a program on Holiday Plants. Dulce Rodrigues told the meeting about the Garden Club organizational meeting, held recently. We elected a new leader, Lee Breedlove, who will begin serving at the January meeting.

 

Plants that were presented by Jennifer were, Poinsettia’s, Christmas cactus, Stromanthe Triostar, and Ornamental Peppers. She also discussed Kalanchoe and the Desert Rose, a succulent from Africa. She told us that the Poinsettia was named for the person who brought the plant to America, Joel Poinsett. She had a slide show to complement her program. Martha brought several holiday plants to give out.

 

December 11th we will meet at the home of Adelaide Catania. We will bring a dish to share and a gift which is garden related. If you plan to attend, please call Adelaide to RSVP, 407-568-0282. The Green Thumb Christmas party will start at 11:00, Thursday the 11th. See you there!

REMEMBER: Many people will walk into your life but only true friends will leave footprints on your heart.


Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies

 

On October 17th, 35 “Red Hatters” walked into the “Great Outdoors” in Titusville. Some of the “Red Hatters” had never been there and they really enjoyed it. We had our own private room and the food was very tasty. Some of the girls want to go back real soon. The hostesses were Nancy Stickrod, Dottie Kaiser, Rosemary Wolfe and Sylvia Cox. Our quests were Betty Eastmoore, Betty Hurdick, Dulce Rodriquez and Sharon Mack. Dulce enjoyed it so much that she wants to join our group. We celebrated Martha Bradford and Marilyn Eagan’s birthdays. The door prizes were won by Linda Descheneaux, Nancy Adams, Alta Deevers, Nancy Runyan, Martha Bradford, Eleanor McGill and Sharon Mack. The hostesses brought a delicious cake that was enjoyed by everyone.

A few “Red Hatters enjoyed “The Producer” (A play at the Titusville Playhouse) and then dined at “Shiloh’s (used to be Paul’s Smokehouse). We also saw “The Rocky Horror Show” at the Titusville Playhouse and then went to “Bapi”, a restaurant at the Holiday Inn in Titusville.

On the 21st of November we will be heading to “Macaroni Grill”. The hostesses are Eleanor McGill, Colleen Wollam, Carol Crosby and Mary Ann Kiser. See you in all of the familiar places. Sylvia

REMEMBER: You are never completely dressed until you wear a smile.


“NEW “RED HATTER”

 

Dulce Rodriquez is one of our new “Red Hatters”. She went to one of our luncheons and enjoyed it so much, loved all of the “Bling” that she has shopped for glamorous jewelry and has decorated her red hat.

She has a son and daughter and 3 grandsons. She was born in Havana, Cuba and moved to Puerto Rico and lived there for 22 years. She then moved to Miami and worked for Miami Dade County as a Structural Engineer for 17 years. She also has a degree in Business Administration and a degree in Industrial Engineering. We are pleased to have someone in our group that is so educated.

Dulce retired and moved to Wedgefield and has been here for 9 years. She loves to read, paint and is a great gardener. She was President of the Green Thumb Garden Club for 1 year. She loves animals, has 3 dogs, 2 fish, 1 cat and 2 birds. She is an asset to our “Red Hat Group: and we welcome her.


IN MEMORY OF LOU LASLEY

 

Lou was one of our beautiful “Red Hatters” that moved to Heaven on November 10th.  She was a “Red Hatter” for over 10 years.  She lived on Alabaster for years with her son Terry.  She didn’t know many neighbors but when she joined our group, she said that was one of the best things she ever did.

 

Everyone loved her; she was one of the sweetest “Red Hatters” in the group.  She always wore her red hat and purple attire.  She also loved the “Lunch and Movies Group and went to all the restaurants except if it was Mexican.  Lou also enjoyed all of the movies but would not attend an X Rated movie.

 

Lou and her son moved out of Wedgefield about 5 years ago, moved near Valencia College but she continued to attend our weekly activities and monthly luncheons.  She always attended the WHOA Fall Festivals.  Lou moved again, this time to Lake Pickett but continued to be a part of our group.  Then, she had to move closer to her daughter Robin in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  Lou was in and out of hospitals and finally in a Nursing Home.

 

Everyone complimented Lou on all her outfits.  She always wore a hat to match her outfits.  Lou worked for years in retail while her husband drove a long distant truck so she worked and waited anxiously for her husband to come home.  Both of her sons also drove trucks.

 

Her daughter Robin called her Mary Lou but she wanted the “Red Hatters” to call her Lou.  She had a daughter and 3 sons and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren and nieces and nephews.  Lou was loved by all the “Red Hatters” and received cards daily from all of us and when I would call her, she would tell me how many she had received that day.  She will truly be missed!

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.
