Message from the President - June 2022
On June 14th we honor of Old Glory…wave your flags with pride! On the 19th we pay homage to the rock of our home: Dad. Please tell your father how much you love and respect him…whether he is here or not, he will hear you. This year begins the first commemoration of June 19th, and the liberation of the slaves. It is a day to celebrate.
NEWS FOR THIS MONTH
We are excited to see the completion of the guard rails along Hancock Road! Please thank all our council members for their efforts on this project. It is a more safe and secure drive.
Senator Lauren Book’s father has had a cancer relapse. The SRHOA has sent a card to her. We are grateful for their donation to our HOA and wish only the best for the Book family. May Ron make a speedy recovery and enjoy the love/support of family.
An immense “Thank you” goes to George Cailis and the American Hellenic Educational & Progressive Association (AHEPA) for their generous $1,000 donation to the Town of SWR Scholarship Fund. George, you, and your colleagues are wonderful…thank you!!!
As of this writing, we have been assured there will be NO NORTHBOUND TURN LANE OFF SHERIDAN ONTO VOLUNTEER. Also, there will be no northbound access coming out of Holman. Traffic will need to go east or west on Sheridan, not come across. Please see the letter from Mr. Richard Tornese included in this issue.
Please be reminded k-12 will finish the school year June 9th: kids will be on bikes, horses, golf carts, etc. The posted speed limit of 25mph is the law, not a suggestion. Drive as if your own children were on the street.
The Town of SWR Scholarship Foundation will award recipients at the second July council meeting. There are several wonderful young men and women who will receive funds…please attend the meeting to salute our town’s youth.
June officially begins hurricane season (although it appears storms have started earlier). Make sure to read, and keep handy, the town’s June newsletter which dedicates itself to all things important and necessary during this time.
Finally, we realize there are a number of residents/neighbors who are older. We are looking to create an elder care group/hotline to ensure our more mature members have a lifeline available in case of any emergency, whether big or small. If you wish to assist in this endeavor, please reach out to any member of your SRHOA board.
Support Southwest Ranches’ Certified Community Habitat status by certifying your own backyard through the National Wildlife Federation’s backyard habitat program…it is easy, plus you may purchase and proudly display a certification sign. Go to nwf.org/certifiedwildlifehabitat today to certify.
Mayor Breitkreuz’s next “Q & A with Mayor Breitkreuz,” along with the SWR Farmers’ Market, will resume in September. Steve is taking the summer off from his Q & A meetings and will likely resume in the fall. We ask you stay connected for updates. Please join Steve’s Zoom meeting to enjoy a relaxed and collegial discussion concerning events and needs of the Southwest Ranches community.
Remember, the Council meets face-to-face at Town Hall on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. Occasionally, dates may change. Please check the Southwest Rancher and/or www.southwestranches.org for meeting dates, times, and agendas.
