  • Ballroom dance classes start anew

    Some of us started our New Year with a birthday. There are many who start with the Jewish New Year. The majority started yesterday.

    Whenever our New Year began, we all have the same problems with setting up goals. Many of us are good at figuring out what we hope to accomplish.

    We find it difficult to stick to our goals for as long as it takes to reach them. We all start with the best of intentions but somehow get sidetracked along the way.

  • Covenant changes are mandated

    Changes in Florida State Statute 720 make it necessary to revise our Marion Landing Covenants to conform with the new rules and regulations. Our Architectural Control and Documents committees have been working long and hard to bring our covenants up to snuff and want to share their progress with you.

    So …  mark your ever lovin’ calendars for a Jan. 9 workshop to review proposed covenant changes.

  • Potluck socials have new chairperson

    Hello Readers: It seems impossible that another year has come and gone. May 2009 bring you special blessings, good health and prosperity. Let us also remember those who are in far- away places, with particular attention to those serving in the armed forces. Thank you seems so inadequate.

  • A few more hands needed for breakfast

    Many “happy holidays” and “merry Christmas” greetings were exchanged at the last breakfast. Thanks go to Nancy Stablein who donated her 50/50 winnings back to the kitchen.

    The next Cherrywood breakfast will be Saturday, Jan. 17, 2009 from 8 to 9:15 a.m. Juice, fruit cup, French toast, sausage, coffee and tea is $3 per person.

    Larry and the crew still need a few more extra helping hands so we can rotate volunteers each month. For tickets, see Geri at the office or Nancy Archer at Bingo.

  • A caroling they did go

    Just down the road apiece Preservist Rosemary Spaay submitted the following for inclusion in this week’s Preserve column.

    On Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008, forty-six gaily dressed people in golf carts and autos paraded through Spruce Creek spreading Christmas cheer. Christmas carols were sung at 29 homes.

  • Another mission of mercy planned

    Tim and Daphne Delaney are still working with the mission in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua but hurricane survivors in Haiti have become a second concern. They have been in touch with Pastor Pierre Almonor, who is trying to care for 300 impoverished children in one of the poorest nations in the world.

    The Delaneys are planning a trip to Haiti, possibly in February, to help rebuild the mission’s school and bring as much material aid with them as they can. Donations of nonperishable food, clothing or money are welcome.

  • ‘Tis the season to parade

    Just down the road apiece the early morning silence was broken recently by peals of goodwill heralding from the many fun-loving Preservists gathered in the Preserve parking lot to gear up for their annual Christmas parade. Forty-seven fantastically decorated units – golf carts, autos, trucks, boats, bikes, etc. lined up for the best-ever Preserve extravaganza.

  • Hammons celebrate 60th wedding anniversary

    Friends and neighbors want to congratulate Foy and Liz Hammons on their 60th wedding anniversary. They were married in Hope, Arkansas, on Dec. 29, 1948, and have three children; Foy III, Austin and Laura, all residing in Florida.

    Foy and Liz retired to Oak Run from Miami in 1989 and have enjoyed bowling, golf and bingo. We wish them many more years in Oak Run.

  • Bring in the New Year at the Oasis

    Hello Readers: My goodness, another Christmas has come and gone. It is with hope that our readers had a wonderful time with family and friends. So many people reduced the way they celebrated due to the economy, but still had joy in their hearts to share.

  • Sadie adds color to the community

    Christmas is almost here and it is a joyous time of the year. Because it is a special time I wanted to feature a very special lady we have residing in Spruce Creek North. Her name is Sadie Horton and she is 96 years young. I do believe she is our community’s oldest resident.

    Sadie has had a remarkable life. She was born Sadie Adelaide Poyton on May 19, 1912 in Providence, Rhode Island. As a young girl she won a scholarship to the Rhode Island School of Design.
