A note from Laura

If you didn't get a t-shirt Saturday during the Yard Sale event, we still have some left and will bring them to the monthly meeting. They are $15 each. Proceeds will go towards landscaping and upkeep of entrances, including continued replacement of the flag. (The picture on back of t-shirt is from a Sunshine Gardens ski show in the 50's, when Lake Sarasota was Sunshine Gardens. A bit of the unique history of our community that few people know about.)We extend a sincereThanks to Mickey Schweitzerfor purchasing the T-Shirts as a donation toward our efforts.Our monthly meeting will resume onJune 12 at Sarasota Baptist Church - Room #100 @ 7:00 pm.We plan to have an open forum to discuss landscaping of our medians.

Scenes from the Yard Sale of May 19th

Saturday's Yard Sale brought breezes, love bugs, and beaucoup buyers of muffins, hot dogs, burgers, and drinks. Neighbors signed the petition to keep Neighborhood Services going. We sold some T-shirts, and still have some for sale.

The sale had its share of community spirit, heroes and fun.

Mark made sure the median was pristine after the tents were struck. He's made it a personal mission to keep the medians and crosswalks tidy.

Greeters arrived who, interestingly, waved to those exiting the neighborhood.

Judy brought Isabella.

Dawn was there from beginning through smoky middle to end.
