Oak Run news 09-01-2017

-A A +A

Be a hero, visit the Big Red Bus on Sept. 7

By Laura Smith

Dear readers, I will never complain about all our rain again, when thinking of all those people in Texas. We have friends there, some of you have relatives and all our prayers go out to them. In fact, we really do not have much to complain about living here in Oak Run. The following is a warning from a friend. He called and asked me to warn you not to put checks in your mail box, take them to the post office. He had one stolen on the day several boxes were looted and on Friday, 25th (stolen on 1st) it was processed and several hundred dollars were stolen. He said all accounts now must be changed. There is a post office in Winn Dixie parking lot, so please take mail there.
The Sunday Couples Golf group have posted another member having a hole in one (see article). I love it, recently I posted picture of the wife and now it was the husband. Do they say, “couples who have hole in ones together stay together?” Sorry, I made that up! Oh well, congratulations Stimsons.
The 4th is Labor Day so that means we do not need to do a lick of work, right? The first Labor Day was 1882 and created to give workers a holiday. It became a federal holiday in 1894. New residents to this area of Florida, if you haven’t visited the charming village of Mount Dora, why not travel with Oak Run on Oct. 26. You will be glad you did! I leave you with these words, “Hope grows in the corners of my heart.” I hope that is true for your heart. Peace, Laura
