2012 Updates Made

November 30, 2012 - Friday

See added page. As I learn more, I will update the page.  The Community Alert page is an ACTIVE PAGE ... We have some slimeball kids (it appears) who are breaking into our homes.  May they be BE CAUGHT very soon ... putting the sign at the entrance.

From a neighbor: Also another note – if you have ordered something via internet, catalogs, etc. and when packages are delivered by UPS, FEDEX, USPS, etc. and left at your doorstep – this is another invitation for thieves to just come up to your house and take them. They follow these delivery trucks around and when packages are left, they just blatantly walk up and walk away with them . . . . also another invitation that no one is home. If you know you are expecting a delivery of some kind and won't be home, maybe let one of your neighbors know and they can take it in for you.

Very Good Advice!

November 20, 2012 - Tuesday

WHOA the month went fast!!!

Having house guests for extended periods of time only makes the time feel longer ;-)

I am working on posting the agenda and writing notes now. The agenda is posted ... now to the notes. :-( I am really (really, really) getting burned out on note taking & writing )-: It has been many years now ... Any Other Volunteers?

Woot - Woot - WOOT!!! The Notes are DONE !!! Here they are.

I am working on some more of the site over the weekend. I hope to have it updated as to what is happening when and where - but if not - come to the meeting on Monday :-)

I added a RiverWatch "fan page" on facebook. This will transparently open the communication lines MULTIPLE ways. Once the page goes live, I am planning on making the page RiverWatch members ONLY ~ Thoughts?

If you have any questions you would like to ask - ask away :-)

June 24, 2012 - Sunday

Meeting June 18th is the last meeting and the notes from the meeting before this one are now notes. I had to do a find and replace (which automatically updates all pages )-: wholly smokes there are a lot of pages ... I imagine many are quite out of date :-(

I have not yet done the notes from the meeting 6/18/12 ...

June 15, 2012 - Friday

Updating the site - adding the agenda. Moved things around on the main page (the COUNTDOWN to the Dock Lock Change is on the very top of the page now ... If you use the dock - your CURRENT key will NOT work once the locks are changed.

If you know a neighbor who uses the dock - ask if they have gotten their new keys yet ...

June 4, 2012

Updating the site with a countdown to the dock lock being changed - which is ...   ... get with Sue if you need / want a new key. You need to prove OWNERSHIP in RiverWatch to obtain a key. One of the AWESOME perks of living IN RiverWatch.

If you would like to BECOME an owner in RiverWatch (located on the beautiful Anclote River in historic Tarpon Springs ;-) drop an e-mail to  ... that's me. YouKnowYourHome.com ... If I may be of assistance in your Real estate needs - let me know. I have the Keller Williams® team working with me and I must say ... they ROCK!!! Grateful I am to have found them.

Back to the community ... PLEASE try to turn-out for our meeting June 18th - ESPECIALLY if you have not attended or sent in a proxy in the past couple of months. Even if you LOVE the board we have - we are just temporary until the "actual" ANNUAL MEETING ... I look forward to a LARGE turn-out.

May 23, 2012 
Updated the agenda to be the notes. NOTE - Dock Lock change !!! SURPRISE to those using the dock illegally :-)

May 19, 2012 

Updating the site with date of next meeting MONDAY - I am now working on the agenda. Once it is done, I will update again and get the sign out.

NOTICE ~~~> WE NEED TO ELECT OUR NEW BOARD AT THE NEXT MEETING. I am our communities NEWEST Real Estate Licensee ... I've been on the board since the Feb. board meeting 2007. Is it time for some new blood :-) Want to see what it looks like from the other side of the tables ...

I will ask the brokerage I am hanging my license Monday, is it ethical to remain on the board in a community I do hope one day to have as my "farm area" ... I love our community ~ I think it ROCKS !!! :-)

ANYWAY - we need a LARGE turn-out at the meeting Monday, May 21, 2012

NOTE:  Even if I do not remain on the board, I intend to attend all meetings - and I'll even keep taking the notes (for meetings I DO attend) and update TarponRiverWatch as I am able, I feel our community is worth it ... just be aware people LOVE to bitch but very few step forward to ACTUALLY do ~ may that change with you ~ :-)

IF my brokerage firm says YAY! to being on the board and the community votes me to continue in my role ~ continue I will ... if not ... :-)

I updated the agenda - it is FINAL at 7:00 PM this evening.

NOTE:  Brokerage firm says A-OK to be on the board :-)

May 6, 2012 - Sunday 

Notes from the April 2012 meeting (I will add links to everything ... later today ... (?) )


Wow - that looked a lot more excited than I feel ... the meeting SHOULD have been our Annual Meeting but for lack of members ... no annual meeting could be held. But no problem ... no one (other than current board members) has stepped forward to volunteer to run for the board :-(

HOWEVER - that doesn't stop community members from pointing out how lacking the current board members "may possibly" be ... >:-{ ... If you would like to volunteer to be on the RiverWatch board of directors until the next annual meeting in 2013 - let Sue know ASAP  that you would like to run and we can do that at the 2012 ANNUAL MEETING.

April 18, 2012 - Wednesday 

Added minutes from last month - added the agenda for this month (this is also our ANNUAL meeting - we need YOU there) This is the meeting the Board of Directors will be elected until the next ANNUAL meeting.

April 12, 2012 - Thursday 
Great Greetings - I got a new number (727) 455-9100

April 5, 2012 - Thursday 

Got a report of a 'gator (about 7 feet) at the playground pond. If any of the alligators in our three ponds (gasp! yes - we got 'gator ~ this is Florida :-) become an issue - please check the "Who Ya Gunna Call" page.

March 20, 2012 - Tuesday 

Last nights birthday celebration for Mom was great :-) Sorry I missed the meeting, but I figure Mom's birthday is a good reason to skip ... so if a note is needed, let me know and I will write it.

We received the notification of our Annual meeting for 2012 today ... PLEASE attend if for no other reason than to say "I Did!" This is also the time we elect our board members for the next year. If you can not attend, please get your proxy sent in, in the enclosed envelope (or give to your proxy to attend the meeting in your stead).

In the mailing there is no mention of TarponRiverWatch.com :-( and I am sick to tears of hearing "I never knew we had a website" ... so after creating and maintaining it these past years ... I am considering removing the website ... stopping all work on it ... or ... re-purposing ... :-)

Tarpon River Watch :-) I hear Wal*mart may be looking at further options on our banks.

March 16, 2012 - Friday 

Updated the agenda to add 7.1  and now getting ready for the weekend :-) Then Mom's birthday is Monday ~ so I will miss the meeting on Monday ... Kathleen will take notes :-)

March 15, 2012 - Thursday

Added the agenda for the meeting MONDAY the 19th ... it is also my Mom's birthday, so I will not be attending the meeting :-) However the agenda reflects my not being there ... so ... enjoy :-)

March 10, 2012 - Saturday 

Annual meeting for 2012 will be at the April Meeting. If you would like to run for the board PLEASE contact Sue.

March 2, 2012 - Friday
