TANGLEWOOD is a proud member of Florida’s Manufactured Housing Association (FMHA).Recently the FMHA was successful in negotiations with Highland’s County to assess the new fire tax per square foot, instead of a flat rate, for a lessor impact on affordable housing such as manufactured homes.We would like to thank them for their efforts in assisting with this.

Residents pay taxes by way of pass ons in the land lease communities. It will be important for us all that Amendment 2 passed this year. It will keep the 10% cap on certain annual property taxes.It is supported 100% by Florida Senate and 97% by Florida House of Representatives, but we will all need to vote yes to get it passed again.

I meet with residents after Monday Morning Coffee in the Community Room. I’m there until 9:30 a.m., or you can contact me via phone, through email, or in person by appointment. Making an appointment would be best so that I can set aside time to meet with you without any interruptions. I look forward to seeing you!!

The Beautification Recognition is at the home of Dana & Kay Silva, 1621 Wildflower Dr. Congratulations!! This beautiful yard and well-groomed home is appreciated by all our residents. The judging includes a well maintained yard, clean exterior of the home, as well as maintained plants and shrubs.

Each month we will recognize a home with beautifully maintained yard. The Award sign will be in the yard for one month. A resident committee chooses a yard each month, and there are several guidelines they must follow.

You could do a 50/50 drawing. Perhaps do a game of cards, petanque, bowling, golf, pickleball and set a price on points.It could be a penny, a nickel, or a dollar a point with the proceeds going to the RV Club’s Food Drive.We’re asking that you help us get off to a good start by keeping the Christmas Food Drive in mind at your gatherings through fall.

Lip Synch Contest – Fundraiser for the RV Club Food Drive.

At 7 PM on October 20 the Diversions Committee will sponsor a Lip Synching contest for the benefit of the annual RV Club Food Drive. This is a Fundraiser.

Any resident OR employee of Tanglewood is encouraged to form a team to compete. A team may be one person or a dozen or more.

Choose the song you want to perform to; get copy of it to the Tech Committee by October 10. You will NOT be singing, just mouthing the words, or lip synching. You provide your own props and costumes, there will not be a stage crew to assist.

TMAC Committees, Neighborhoods, clubs and singles are welcome to register a team. Office workers, groundskeepers, maintenance, everyone can join. Be creative, synch your song to your activity. Or pick your own very favorite song from days gone by. Channel your inner Elvis, Patti Page, John Denver, Madonna, or Pete Seeger.

Judging will be done by audience applause, so be sure to have all your friends and neighbors come to cheer for your team. A fabulous prize will be awarded to the winner. But the real winner here will be the RV Club’s food drive.

Team Registration: $10, non-refundable. Change your chosen song up until October 1. Cash or a check to Heartland Food Bank is acceptable.

You can register and participate in as many teams as you’d like. Fill out registration forms on the credenza or from Billie’s office. If more than one team chooses the same song, the team with the earlier paid registration will get it.

Another Christmas season is approaching, and the Outdoor Decorating Committee is HYPED and EXCITED!!! We have fantastic plans for expanding the lights around the community. The first year we started with 36 Christmas trees around 2 ponds and Christmas Wreaths on the entrance poles.

Last year we added 88 wrapped trees in what we call the forest (in the circle area).

This year we will have the wrapped trees, and hope to have over 100 trees around the community, We also have a beautiful new crèche that was generously donated by our Tanglewood Community Church.

The ODDC is also responsible for the banners that you see hanging from the poles all around the community. Hometown America is very helpful to us as they put the banners up and take them down when they need to be changed.

In addition to this, the ODDC is also responsible for “Tanglewood Friends”. Typically, this consist of holding approximately four dances per year.

Here’s the good part! At the current time, we have several openings for people who want to be part of this exciting committee. We would like people who are interested in contributing to the betterment of the community, and who are willing to work as much or as little as their schedule allows.

If you would like to be part of this great committee that is dedicated to Tanglewood. Give us a call.

Exchange day at the library is the first Monday of each month. Please bring your work to the library after coffee and sign it in. That’s all! You may also make arrangements to exhibit a collection.

The tops of the shelves are 12 inches wide. This is a good place to display crafts, as well as paintings and photos. All items must be made by Tanglewood residents.

The next art exchange day is October 1, 2018.
