Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to all of those who were celebrating this week.  No one was at the meeting for us to serenade.

Chaplain Kevin led 32 Orange Acres residents in prayer to open our meeting.  Last week we had 28 in attendance.

                          

We had one returning resident - Ramona Armstrong, and one resident sadly leaving, Lois Weaverling, who said she has been crying for days at the thought of leaving her OA friends.  It was good to see Mary Ryman at the meeting today.

Fran Foust introduced new residents Larry and Cheryl Strohbeck.  They are from Brighton, Illinois and purchased Dave and Edna's home on Tammy Drive and also purchased Mary and Harold Ryman's home on Tammy Drive to use as a rental.  Everyone gave them a big Orange Acres welcome.

There were several birthdays and anniversaries for the next week but no one was present at coffee for us to sing.

Phil Albarano spoke about a meeting that he and Jane Betts had with Amy Warrington on the subject of hurricanes.  In the past there was a committee of Orange Acres residents who distributed information to all of the year-round residents with regard to hurricane preparedness.  There was a sheet included with the information to let the Orange Acres office know where each resident would go in case of a hurricane.  The Community Center is open during a hurricane but it is NOT an evacuation shelter.  The Orange Acres office would like the responsibility of hurricane preparedness to be taken by the residents rather than the office.  A vote was taken to see if a "Hurricane Committee" should be formed.  No one voted for the committee.  The issue may be brought up again.

We still do not have a volunteer to chair a pizza party in August.  Acting President Jane Betts will ask one more time next week.

Acting President Jane Betts thanked Mike and Fran Foust for providing donuts for the month of July and thanked Bob Beauregard for making coffee during the month of July.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:40 am

Phil went over the results of a meeting between Jeff Warrington and Vice President and President Elect Jane Betts and Betsy Chace, Secretary for the Residents Association regarding concerns about our pool.  If you were unable to attend this morning's coffee meeting, please contact Jane or Elaine Albarano, as they have minutes of that meeting.

Our summer pizza party is scheduled to be Wednesday, August 6th, but at this time we do not have a chairperson.  Marj Dunn is unable to do so due to health issues.  If anyone is interested, please contact Jane soon!
