OFFICERS COMMITTEE - SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 - LIVE IN CYBERSPACE


IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON STOPPING IN FOR THE LEGACY / INSURANCE MEETING


Don’t bother. No one there.


Why doesn’t the person who posted the meetings on this blog, alert people the meeting is canceled.


Clubhouse security reports they knew the meeting was canceled yesterday.


What about the next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 1? Is that on?


How can any perspective attendees who want to have questions answered, have any faith that the meetings will be held?


This is the second time I arranged my monthly calendar around an insurance meeting that was canceled.


The first time was an insurance committee meeting at the UCO office and I saw Diana and Mike coming out of UCO and sure enough; people were turned away, because no meeting was to be held and no cancellation notice was distributed.


I know everyone is a volunteer and it gets complicated, but perhaps not scheduling meetings, might be a better decision…… 


or a part-time paid insurance assistant …..a some-what like paid employee similar to Sebastian, with much less duties.


No need to be a registered insurance agent, just an administrator, because whoever is administering the program now, it isn’t working.


What am I missing here?

NOTICE OF PASSING - LANNY HOWE

-
Lanny was a good friend he is deeply missed.
-
Lawrence N. Howe, 82, died on Monday, September 16, 2019 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
He leaves his former wife Lois (Doubleday) Howe, their 4 sons, Peter and his wife Tang, Timothy and his wife Deborah, Stephen, and John, and his daughter Deborah, who sadly passed in 2012, and her husband Christos; 10 grandchildren: Stephanie, Christine, Connor, Maxwell, Katherine, Ioannis, Alexandra, Petros, Isabella, and Tedrik; 3 great grandchildren: Jaxson, Julian, and Jamison; and also his former wife Connie. He also leaves behind his brothers Raymond and his wife Beverly, Arthur and his wife Paula, and his sister Marcia, and their families.
-
“Lanny” was born on December 6th, 1936, in Dedham, MA. At just five years old, Lanny got his first job delivering three Boston newspapers, the Globe, the Herald and American, costing just 2 cents each. Throughout his teenage years he developed a life-long love for nature and outdoor living. He was a Boy Scout leader in Troop 3, Dedham, often hiking the woods, trails, hills and streams throughout New England with other scouts who have remained life-long friends. Lanny graduated with honors from Dedham High School in 1954 and went on to attend Swarthmore College. He served in the National Guard from 1960-65. On April 22nd of his freshman year at Swarthmore, Lanny became a born again Christian. He became an intense seeker of a greater understanding of Christianity, and of the living of life as one. He read widely, met with people often, and corresponded copiously with them about this lifelong commitment.
-
Lanny met his wife, Lois, at Swarthmore. They eventually settled with their young family in Stoughton, Massachusetts, where they raised their children in a setting that fulfilled his love of nature…next to a quiet pond and a forest. As a young man, he began working for AAA, where he continued for over 25 years as a manager at offices in Boston and Newton. He later worked as a writer and editor for a small Christian magazine called The Intercessor.
-
In the early 1990’s, Lanny moved to Florida. He married Connie, and remained married to her for 10 years. He eventually settled in the senior community of Century Village in West Palm Beach. He became enthusiastically involved in this community he grew to love, and contributed much of his time working at the Village newspaper, as president of his association, and helping others whenever possible. Many of his neighbors have told moving stories of how he helped them out in tough circumstances. He still missed his New England roots, and often came north in the fall to visit with family and friends, and to reconnect with the land.
-
Throughout his life, Lanny was an avid reader with wide interests, especially in historically accurate accounts. He found joy in writing, often injecting a wry sense of humor enjoyed by all. His letters and poems will long be treasured by those he left behind. Visitation hours will be Tuesday September 24, 2019 from 4-7:30pm with a funeral service to follow at 7:30pm in the Funeral Home. Burial with United States Army Military Honors will be held Wednesday at 11am in Knollwood Memorial Park, Canton.

Hello All-

 It is almost the weekend,  Just a few more hours to happy hour time!  Anyone know any CV gossip?

I may be a tad early, but who is running this year for President?   I am wondering if Mr. Israel is going to toss his hat in the ring??  I think he may like cats, so he is my man!  
....................................................................
This is Tom the cat of "Tom and Jerry" fame. The candidate is definitely a cat lover.

HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE FOR CENTURY VILLAGE

-
 
9/3/2019 PROPERTY MANAGER’S REPORT (UPDATED)
By Donald Foster, LCAM
PBC EMERGENCY HOTLINE 561-712-6400

 
UCO- UCO Office will be open for business tomorrow, 9/4, at 9:00 AM.

 
CV RECREATIONAL FACILITY- Clubhouse and Fitness Center will reopen tomorrow at 8:00 AM.

 
ATLANTIC BROADBAND- Temporary ABB retail store, on the second floor of the CV Clubhouse, will reopen tomorrow at 8:00 AM. 

 
BUS SERVICE- Restoration of bus service will likely coincide with the reopening of the CV Clubhouse, but this will be dependent on weather conditions.

 
SECURITY- Roving patrols have resumed. Full security service will resume tomorrow, including manned entry gates.

 
UCO REPORTER- Newspapers will be delivered on Saturday, 9/7 and Sunday, 9/8.

 
WASTE PRO- Garbage collection will resume tomorrow morning.  Regular garbage, recyclables, and bulk waste collection will happen on regularly scheduled days. Tomorrow will be recycle pickups for all sections.  Friday will be bulk garbage pickup day. 

 
POST STORM SURVEY- CV Associations are advised to survey their properties for storm related damage, and make arrangements for repairs. Most of this damage was not caused by wind or rain, but rather last minute installation of plywood window coverings. Holes in building exteriors, from masonry nails and screws, will need to be patched and painted. Also, there are many broken EXIT lights on exterior catwalks, caused by sheets of plywood being hurriedly moved to units by untrained workers. 

 
Associations are reminded that Waste Pro does not pick up construction and demolition debris as part of regular service, and this includes sheets of plywood. Please call Waste Pro for special pickup, or arrange for this material to be moved off property.

Live Camera - Dorian

Is there a or several ‘live cameras’ (webcam) overlooking some part of Century Village that either snowbirds or those who have left for security reasons the site can view?

This could help us for evaluating ‘live’ the severity of the damage (if applicable) to the Village in general and also help us evaluate  the situation if we have parents, family or friends on site.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who would appreciate this feature!

Thanks!

 Paul Monette

Okeechobee Entrance Century Village


How often can we slide through our security gate like this?

Thank you all, who contribute to keep Century Village rolling along !





HURRICANE PREPARATION TIP

If your dumpster has a security bar, make sure it is up over the dumpster lids.

This will exclude hurricanes and raccoons!
