  • The Landscape Garden Club is resuming its meetings THIS Monday, September 16th. The topic for the month is Butterflies in the Garden. They will also have a plant exchange and there will be knowledgeable people there to answer your questions, identify a plant or a problem.
  • Rather than risking a fall, Kay Mahoney would like someone she can call periodically to sit with Norm if she needs to go out for a period of time. Can you help her or recommend someone to her?
  • Marion Getzes is selling Mahj Jongg cards again this year. Getting your cards for 2020 through Marion benefits the Temple Shalom Sisterhood and Cornerstone Hospice.
  • Mary Eill reminds residents living inside Livingston and Evelynton Loops, Ludwell Lane, Sag Harbor Way, Bellerose Trail and Eaton Terrace of the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) program for that area. If you have new or returning neighbors on those streets, please pass this information along so they can be included.

  • Temple Shalom is having a Vendors Fair on Monday, September 23rd. Wonderful merchandise is promised, including jewelry; Mahj Jongg, skin care, Pampered Chef and health related products; handbags, home decor, crafts, and much more (click on flier to the right).
  • Note from Florida's CFO Jimmy Petronis:  Just a few weeks ago, we narrowly missed a direct hit from a very powerful storm in Hurricane Dorian. Unfortunately, our neighbors in the Bahamas suffered severe devastation and I encourage all Floridians to support relief efforts through Volunteer Florida. As you read this today, there is another tropical disturbance we’re monitoring in the Caribbean. This should serve as a reminder to Floridians that we are at the peak of hurricane season and must continue to prepare now for the threat of a major storm.
  • Once again, THANKS to Lynnhaven Neighbors for renewing this website's domain name (website address: lynnhavenvillage.org) and the hosting of the website (a service that makes it available online). Thank you, Lynnhaven Neighbors. (Starting October 1st, Lynnhaven Neighbors will be accepting memberships for 2020.)

Lynnhaven Ladies

  • HURRY! Only 5 seats left for the bus trip to HSN Outlet & Mazzaro's Italian Market on Tuesday, October 15th. It is now open to guests. Reserve your seat with Lorraine DeGenova at 2320 Due West Drive. Once the bus is full, a Waiting List will be started should someone have to cancel (1st on the list, 1st called).
  • For October, one of our favorite entertainers, Clark Barrios, will be back to entertain us and sing to our fabulous October birthday babes. You don't want to miss this!
  • Starting October 1st, Marion will be accepting membership checks for 2020. You can drop off or mail your check before then, but it won't be processed until October 1st.
  • More information has been provided about December's Christmas/Holiday Luncheon at Savannah Center. More details will be coming as we get closer to October's luncheon, when you can start signing up.

  • September's 9-hole Golf Scramble followed by the Picnic-style dinner with the Sounds of Time at Laurel Manor that evening is THIS Saturday, September 14th. See you there....
    If you attended either one or both of the events, please take the survey while they are still fresh in your mind. Your responses are completely anonymous. Thank you.

  • And starting THIS Saturday, September 14th, you can sign up for The Ridiculous Comedy & Magic Show with Todd Bogue in October. We'll be back at Laurel Manor and it is table-share, where each table plans its own menu. Plan a table of 8 or just make your own reservations. If you want to sit together with friends, one person should collect the checks for everyone in the party and submit it in one envelope. Make your reservations with Ann Lewe at 2383 Wilson Way.
  • Starting October 1st, Barb will be accepting membership checks for 2020. You can drop off or mail your check before then, but it won't be processed until October 1st.

Ladies Book Club

  • The club met Thursday, September 5th, to discuss Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik. Mary Dooley led the discussion, but we also had Sue Laluk, who had returned to her alma mater in Buffalo, NY, to sit in on A Conversation with RBG that she attended the previous week. Read about it and see some pictures that were taken.

  • We see the devastation from hurricane Dorian and want to help, but where is the best place to put our money that will do the most good? An official involved in the disaster relief effort in the Bahamas recommended a couple charities, and said what they need most is money. Charity Navigator also lists other charities that are helping. Look for the ones with a 4 star rating.
  • After disasters like Dorian in the Bahamas, disaster relief scammers come out of the woodwork. We see the devastation and want to help, but the FTC warns against falling for a disaster relief scam and provides several steps you can take to protect yourself from this type of fraud. It also has a YouTube video on the topic.
  • Hurricane season is here. The FTC asks if you are ready and provides tips for dealing with weather emergencies.
  • In case of a hurricane coming our way, AARP suggests you get a "go bag" ready should you need to evacuate. But, keep in mind that our homes were build post hurricane Andrew and are built to withstand winds of 110 mph, so our homes are pretty safe. Should a hurricane approach central Florida, do get supplies early to hold you over should you lose power or not be able to venture out. Water, batteries, etc. empty out of the stores very quickly.
  • And don't forget about your pets. The ASPCA provides disaster preparedness steps and tips. I've also included a list of pet-friendly hurricane shelters in Lake, Sumter & Marion Counties. Pack a "go bag" for your pet, too.
  • The FTC recommends taking Free Monitoring of your credit if your personal and credit information was exposed due to Equifax's data breach. So many people's personal information was exposed that the amount of restitution you would receive when you place a claim is only $1.25 (last estimate I've heard).
  • Marion & Irv Getzes are involved in Sleep in Heavenly Peace, an organization that makes beds for children who don't have any. There is a woman here in The Villages who is making afghans for the organization and children. Marion & Irv are collecting worsted #4 yarn donations for her. Have any you can spare?
