President's Report September 2020 - Mark Hooker

President’s Letter

Mark Hooker

Our Northern residents may be wondering what we have been doing in Golf Lakes. Well-NOT MUCH. Life is quiet and simple for us all. We get outside, visit in small groups, and maybe eat out but that is about it.

We do not know of any cases of Covid-19 cases here in the park. There were 148 residents tested when the County Health Department did test on 2 different days. It was free to all residents with no prescription. The Health Department called park office and asked if we would like to have them come in and test. It was a good opportunity for our residents.

Palm trees were trimmed in late August and they look much nicer. Our maintenance crew cleaned all the old yellow paint off the curbing around the main parking lot and repainted. It was a hot job too! They did a great job and it looks better. All the sanitary sewer lines around Mirror Lake have been lined or repaired. We still have a lot of sub mains to inspect and some may need to be lined. Those that do need to be lined will be done next year.

The Board had a meeting on August 20 using “zoom” to discuss how activities will be handled this winter season. You will be hearing more about this meeting. As of right now the clubhouse is closed except the library and the craft room. They are open with restrictions. If you use either, you need a mask and social distancing. All outside amenities are open and are for residents only. This includes the pool and the fitness center. The pool and spa are restricted to 20 people at a time in total (not individually) and are for exercise and therapy only. You will be hearing more about the Board meeting held August 20th.

This winter will be a lot different than past winters. We are not sure when some of the activities will start again or if they will.

My wife and I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. We hope to see you this fall or winter.

Please put the following in BOLD AND ALL CAPS WITH A BORDER for emphasis. It should run September through and including January 2021.

NOTIFICATION IF A GUEST CALLS YOU FROM THE CALL BOX AT THE MAIN GATE, YOU MUST PRESS “9” ON YOUR PHONE. THE “6” DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE TO LET ANYONE IN.
