Labor Day traditionally marks the end of the summer vacation season. StillWaters, however, is not just a place to spend your vacation or summer; StillWaters is a great place to live year round. There are so many things to do in our community like volunteering at the Still Waters Fire Department, playing bridge and other card games at the SWRA Centre, attending one of the Neighborhood Council socials, or enjoying a round of golf. Summer may be over but the fun at StillWaters continues through the entire year.
The completion of the 2014 paving project is running a little behind schedule. The paving company that is working in StillWaters is also the same company that is resurfacing Alabama Hwy 49. In an effort to save money and pave as many areas as possible, we are coordinating our paving schedule with the schedule of Hwy 49. When one runs behind, so does the other. Rest assured the paving will be completed soon and traffic will be back to normal.
The SWRA Board of Directors has scheduled two very informative seminars for SWRA property owners that will take place in October and November. Both seminars will be free to property owners and will be held at the SWRA Centre Community Room. The October seminar will cover everything you always wanted to know about Medicare and the November seminar will cover investments for seniors. Make your plans now to attend and read the newsletter for additional information about these upcoming seminars.
If you are planning a Holiday party or family reunion then now is the time to reserve the SWRA Centre Community Room. Your reservation includes the use of the community room, the new deck, tables and chairs, and a full kitchen. The price is very reasonable. There are only a few dates left in December for Christmas parties, so contact the SWRA office today to reserve the community room for your next big shindig.
There has been an increase in the number of phone calls to the SWRA office concerning lost and found pets. SWRA does not have the facilities or the manpower to tend to stray pets. Our policy is not to send a mass email each time someone calls trying to reunite lost or found pets with their owner; we would be sending one two or three times a day. However, the SWRA office is happy to take information concerning a lost or found pet and if the owner contacts the office looking for a missing pet we will try to reunite the two. My best advice for lost and found pets that wonder onto your property is, do not feed it or try to care for it. Instead, try to run it off. It most likely will return to its owner.
In the United States, Labor Day is a national holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a tribute to the contributions American workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Thank you to everyone who gets up each day and works hard to make America a strong nation. Enjoy Labor Day with your friends and family.
