June 1st is the official start of Hurricane Season. Please stop by the business office to pick up the most up-to-date information available. To be prepared is the best plan in case of an emergency.

If you are leaving for a few days, weeks, etc. this summer please secure all loose items around your home in case of a storm. Even our summer storms can bring wind gusts that can make an object become a missile and cause damage to your property or someone else’s.

All overnight guests should be registered with the business office. Residents are responsible for your guests and must accompany them at all times if using any of the amenities. Wrist bands must be worn while at the pool and returned when your guest leaves.

It’s that time again! Staff vs Residents Water Volleyball! June 21st at 1:30 PM. It’s also Gary’s birthday! Join us for some FUN in the SUN.

In addition to the annual school supply drive done at Tanglewood, Hometown America is doing a separate collection.

Please drop off your backpack donation at the Business Office.

Thank you for your generosity.

The Beautification Recognition is at the home of Jackie Young 1934 Sunflower Circle.

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.


Wednesday, June 5th, at 2:00 pm, we will be showing the movie “Welcome to Marwen”. We will also have popcorn and soda for those who wish to attend.

Plot Summary:
No one expects Mark Hogancamp to recover from a devastating assault that wipes away all of his memories. Putting together pieces from the past and present, Mark meticulously creates a Belgian town and becomes a heroic World War II fighter pilot.

His astonishing art installation soon comes to life with breathtakingly realistic dolls — a testament to the most powerful women he knows.

Through this fantasy world, Hogancamp finds the strength to triumph in the real world and face his attackers.

Come out and party with us Tuesday, June 25th,3-5 pm on the Pool Veranda. Rick Arnold will be here performing for your entertainment.

We will have beer, wine, sodas, and water provided for your enjoyment by Hometown America.

Seniors and the working poor still hit the food pantries, especially at the end of the month when their own pantries are empty.

We’ve been helping the less fortunate for years now, and we don’t quit because it’s summer.

The Second Tuesday Food Drive will be collecting non-perishable food from your driveway on Tuesday, June 11.

There’s NO SINGING, just mouthing the words. Once your song is registered and paid for, nobody else can use it.

Have you ever wanted to support a local nonprofit that provides services for seniors 60 years of age and better? Do you have gently used items or wares?

Since 1975, NU-HOPE Elder Care Services, Inc. has provided services for seniors and their caregivers which prevent premature long-term care placement. Annually, the agency provides assistance to over 800 seniors.

Last year alone, NU-HOPE provided over 50,000 home-delivered meals to 244 seniors with nutritional risks, and over 3,500 hours of personal care including assistance with eating, dressing, personal hygiene, and other activities of daily living.

With over 40% of the population in Highlands County, addressing the needs of seniors and those who care for seniors is vital. Annually, NU-HOPE must raise over $350,000 to receive grants to provide these services (many of which are complimentary or based on a sliding fee scale). This is accomplished by agency fundraisers, and its two thrift stores (Sebring and Lake Placid).

Every dollar raised can provide nearly $10 worth of services for seniors or their caregivers.
You, too, can be an advocate for seniors by donating used items or wares to NU-HOPE Elder Care Services, Inc.

Every first Friday of the month, the NU-HOPE Thrift Store Truck will park in the parking lot of the Tanglewood Clubhouse from 10:00 am- 12:00 pm to accept used items. Should you require a pick-up of items, please contact (863) 382-2134.
