HAPPY DAYSAT THE HOP

Tickets $3 at Kaffee Klatch on Thursdays, 8:30am
BYO Everything. Featuring Mid Century Music (from the 50s and 60s)

Beside the Clubhouse there is a well orga-
nized building used for storing many seasonal
items and medical appliances. There are
wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, and canes for
your use should you need them. Barbara
Konvicka (pictured) is the current administra-
tor for these items. Also, if you have applianc-
es that you no longer need, give Barb a call,
571-3104, to see if there is a need for them in
the supply room.
UP ON THE SIDEWALK, NO, NO, NO. A refreshing walk on
the sidewalks in Unit 3 should be simple and straightforward.
Alas, someone out for a stroll instead has to dodge parked cars
and service trucks that plainly have no place
within the sidewalk. These intrusions on pedes-
trian space dont just rudely place vehicles within
a space that should be safe for our residents,
they can structurally damage sidewalks that
arent meant to bear the weight of multi-ton cars
and trucks. Parking on sidewalks is prohibited.
Please refrain from doing this and respectfully
request guests and vendors working on your
property to please park in the street. Thank you.
HOB PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Jean Simpson
Happy New Year to all residents of Unit 3. De-cember was a very busy month. With so many activities and parties to attend, it was difficult to choose where to go first. The Board has been very busy with day to day duties and several even found time to attend an HOA Seminar and Trade Show. Classes were offered so that Board mem-bers can increase their knowledge and be in-formed of any new laws that may affect the com-
There will be a Board Meeting in the Clubhouse on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at 7 pm. The attendance at the November meeting was terrific and wed like to have attendance like that at all our meetings. This is your opportunity to see and hear how the Board conducts the business of the community. Please mark your calendar and join us. Look for the agenda to be posted on the bulletin board. Refreshments will also be served, courtesy of the Social Club. Once again, have a happy and healthy 2016.
SOCIAL CLUB Barbara Konvicka, President
Happy New Year. Enjoyed a great cele-bration at the New Year Eve Party, had a full house, great food, good music and dancing. The hall was beautifully deco-rated. Thank you to all who made it pos-sible and thank you for coming. And thank you, Debbie Krumreich, for plan-ning the Sound of Music outing. She will
be planning other things for us to enjoy here in Unit 3. If you have any ideas for activities you would like us to look into, please contact any member of the Social Club board. 2016 is going to be busy in Unit 3; there is something for everyone as all our groups are busy planning activi-ties. For starters, the Social Club is sponsoring
"Happy Times - At The Hop" on January 17th at 7pm. $3 admission; right out of the 50s. Peter Cunningham and committee is organizing this dance party. Peter has lots of mid century 50s and 60s music to share. There will be a few intermission activities with interest-ing prizes; such as an assortment of free tickets to se-lected future Unit 3 events. In fact, as an incentive for our new residents (as of January 2015), we are offer-ing free admission to The Hop. Come to KK to pick up your free tickets or call Terrie Magyar at 560-0422. The Social Club is your Club. As a resident of Unit 3, you are a member of the Social Club. We have a very diverse neighborhood with wide-ranging experiences. Share your ideas with the Board to keep our activities fresh.
WOMENS CLUB Deb Engstrom, President
Our next meeting will be a Victorian tea par-ty held on Friday, January 15th at noon. It is suggested that you wear a hat, as there will be a hat contest, and bring a teacup if you have one. Later this month we will be having lunch in the outdoor garden patio of Sweet Sage
Cafe in North Redington Beach. There will be a chance to shop in their gift shop/boutique. For those who choose to stop, we will visit the Seabird Sanctuary on the way home. Car pools will be formed accordingly. (Date & time to be determined)
MENS CLUB Collin Simpson, President In December, thanks to great crews, our Appreciation Dinner and Pancake Breakfast were big successes. Many thanks to each one of you who partic-ipated. Now, as we recuperate from the Yuletide season, we look forward to our visit to the Tampa Bay Auto-mobile Museum at 10 am, January
14, following Kaffee Klatch. Be sure to sign up at the Clubhouse for the museum, as well as our reg-ular January meeting scheduled at 6pm the same day. Busy, busy day! I'll See you there.

WALKING CLUB Elaine Wright
The Walking Club has started up again a little slower because of the Holidays, but I feel sure that we will have better turn-outs in January. The regulars that are there almost every week, thank you, they know who they are, and as a group we are always open to more people that enjoy walking both for health and nature. Sometimes a stop is made for lunch at a local place after walk-ing. Following is the schedule for January hope to see
you on the trails.
January 5 - 930am - Ft De Soto Park, Tierra Verde
January 12 - 930am - Ft De Soto Park, Tierra Verde
January 19 - 930am - Gulfport and Osgood Point/ Clam Bayou Nature Park
January 26 - 930am - Gulfport and Osgood Point/ Clam Bayou Nature Park
Beware of unsolicited phone calls offering to fix your computer. They
are a hoax. The caller usually claims
to know that there is a problem in your
computer, and sometimes claims to be
from a large, well known computer
manufacturer. They are slick talkers.
Dont engage them in conversation,
just hang up.
SOUPER BOWL Deb Engstrom
As the New year be-
gins and many of
us begin to think
about the upcoming
Super Bowl party, let
us also think about
those less fortu-
nate. During the entire month of
January, up until Super
Bowl Sunday, February 7th, we will
be having a "SOUP-ER" bowl can
collection. It will be focused on col-
lecting cans of "SOUP", but all
canned goods will be
accepted. This is be-
ing coordinated thru
the St. Pete free clinic
who feeds 40,000 in-
dividuals a month,
and provides food to
food pantries, missions, residential
programs, child care centers, wom-
en's shelters, family shelters and
more. Watch for special collection
OUTDOOR WATER AEROBICS
