Hello Residence.
Vera and I are pleased to be your new managers and have enjoyed our first month with you. Of course in a months time there are always those LITTLE complaints that have to come along. The really,really big one is that dogs are pee peeing etc. on peoples yards. I had one person that wants to possibily buy in here say," all dogs should be shot". I really think most of us have a better heart then that but we that own dogs should try to control them so that we don't irritate the others that don't love these pets as we do. We can"t pick up the pee so lets try to keep them off of the yards, OKAY?

Then there is that really, really, really big one. Thats cigarette BUTS are left on the streets. Now this is big stuff and I don't know how to handle this major problem. Of course this isn't anything new to us. We have had to handle these major problems in the past and came up with the same answer. EVERYONE STOP SMOKING!!!!! We know that this will never happen and now you see what happens in the office. MAJOR, MAJOR DECISIONS.
Lakeside Terrace is a great place to live and if someone happens to let their dog get on your yard don't make a big deal out of it as long as they don't make a habit of it. Don't worry about the buts there will be one of those big hurricanes come by and blow them in the lake. The message, worry more about the big wind and look for the good times that can be had in the second part of your life.

There has been a little scuddlebut about lowering the flag half mast when someone in the community passes on. The flag is to be lowered when our commander in chief request that we do so. That is the only time that I will lower the flag half mast. I have never practiced lowering the flag in the other communities that we have managed except when the president of the United States request it. Whatever I can do for a family that has lost a love one I'll help in any way I can. Again this does not have much to do with the happiness and operation of Lakeside Terrace.
Lets take time to look at the good and not the bad. It's to easy to find little things that causes us unhappiness and disrupts the unity that is needed in this time of our lives.

God Bless.
Chet & Vera


In an effort to keep our residents informed, I will be including articles in the Seagull on a regular basis.  I have also asked Rich Aniol to incorporate a message from me on the website.  I hope you find this page informative and useful.

The April Social Club Meeting was held the 4th.  We had 38 members present.  The following items were authorized or approved:

          * Payment of insurance in the amount of $505
          * Payment of Sam's Club Membership in the amount of $30
          *Payment of copier contract up to $300.  Movement of copier to allow better air                                 circulation was discussed and will be completed within 2 weeks.
          *Discussed the purchase of chair rack(s) and consensus was to wait until actual                                                      prices could be obtained.
          *Request for "seed" money in the amount of $100 was approved for summer                 pool parties.  This money will be used to purchase food for the parties and                    participants will be charged accordingly and the money reimbursed to the                     Social Club.  This is the same procedure all committees follow.  The possibility            of having a pool party in April was discussed but due to lack of time couldn't get           one in.  There are plans in the works for a pool party in March 2006. 

Our thanks to A.V. Fudge and Frank Hamilton who were instrumental in our new chair racks.  After the Social Club Meeting, A.V. approached me and said that he could make the racks for the Social Club.  Frank drew up the plans that night and within 2 weeks time we had new chair racks.  Thank you, guys!

Our condolences to the families who have lost loved ones and our get well wishes to those who have been ill.  Till next time-have a great summer!

Be advised that the Water Aerobic Classes will be at 9:30 A.M. beginning Monday, May 2nd. See ya there!

The Good Sams Club would appreciate your cooperation when we have refreshments to prepare for memorial service and/or fellowship. As soon as we have the information, a notice announcing the arrangements for services, fellowship and refreshments will be posted in the Clubhouse on the bulletin board. Please use the sign up sheets. We must know the number of people who plan to attend said function. We can then be prepared to make the fellowship memory more comfortable for the bereaved.

Two Gadabouts took off for a few days. We went to Ocala to visit Marge Servino and Lorraine Ullery. We had a great time playing cards and socializing. Each has a lovely three room apartment. We took off one day for lunch and ended up at Cedar Key where we had a great lunch. We saw different parts of Florida for the first time. They both sent regards to all at Lakeside Terrace. A good time was had by all.

                   The Gadabouts are Audrey Van Beynen And Dottie Degnan

FYI: With the price of gasoline, I think whenever we are car-pooling, we should give one or two dollars to the driver. I'm sure it would be appreciated.

                                                                  Dottie Degnan

TO OUR NEIGHBORS WHO WERE ILL OR HOSPITALIZED RECENTLY, WE WISH FOR YOU ALL BETTER DAYS AND HEALING TOO COMBINED WITH GOOD CHEER AND STRENGTH.

                                                               Points to Ponder

1. I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD     any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!

2. When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping", now Ijust "chunky dunk".

3. The early bird still has to eat worms.

4. The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen Is eating them.

5. Don't argue with an idiot; people may not be able to tell the difference.

6. Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?

7. Stress is when you wake up screaming and then you realize you haven't fallen asleep yet.

8. My spouse says I never listen to him. At least I think that's what was said.

9. Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

10. Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison?

11. Ifraising children was going to be easy, it never would have started with something called labor!

12. Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever!
