Happy summer to all! Soon, it will be time for back-to-school shopping, bus stops, and speed zones.


On August 31st, please join us at Wunderbar for the monthly SRHOA meeting…it promises to be a great evening of food, fun, and friendship. Guests from South Florida Water Management will join us.

NEWS FOR THIS MONTH
  • Senator Wasserman Schultz has secured $600,000 for the Town which will go towards improvements at the Green Meadows Sanctuary (pavilion, rest room amenities, etc.).

  • Thank you to all who have supported the town’s scholarship fund. Through our collective efforts, 19 students received $2,500 each towards the upcoming college year. Your generosity speaks volumes.
