Civic President's MESSAGE

Ho, ho, holy cow, another year is coming to an end.  A quick recap of 2017 in the Pine Ridge Civic Association reminds us that this year Louise Mathis ceded her position as Civic President but thank goodness she's continued to head up PREV (Pine Ridge Entertainment Volunteers).  We hosted the following speakers:

Jan - Bill Coyle, YMCA Wellness Director and Joanna Castle, Executive Director Feb - Judy Matthews, Three Sisters Springs and its manatees Mar - Randy Oliver, Citrus County Administrator Apr - Angela Vick, Citrus County Clerk of Courts May - Duke Snodgrass, K9's Deputy Dogs Jun - Jim Goodworth, Citrus County Bureau of Public Safety Jul - Aug - summer break Sep - cancelled due to hurricane Irma Oct - Jane Weber, Author and local naturalist Nov - LouAnn Papp, Preplanning a Dignity Memorial

Sunshine Arnold, CEO of Citrus Abuse Shelter Association (CASA) Dec - Presentation of Colors by Young Marines.

Mike Prendergast, Citrus County Sheriff And thanks to your generosity, we presented $500 in donations and gift cards to CASA via our Angel Tree, and over $200 to the Marine Corps League's Injured Warriors of Florida fund.

As the most common New Year's resolution includes health and fitness, at our Jan 8 <x-apple-data-detectors://10>  meeting, Bill Coyle from The Y will tell us about their expansion plans.  The following day, Jan 9 <x-apple-data-detectors://11> , we'll meet at 10AM <x-apple-data-detectors://12>  to fulfill our Adopt-A-Highway responsibility.

In the meantime, please join us at our New Year's Eve party to start 2018 with fun and fellowship.  Reserve your seat and choice of meal by contacting Louise at 527-7443 before Dec 27.

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all.

Sue Wassermann
