OSHNA held its July "eating meeting" tonight at the Seminole Garden Center with a fine spread of food and good neighbors. Neighbors brought their favorite dishes and shared them. OSHNA presented Meals on Wheels with a check raised from the Home Tour proceeds and also presented former president Jeff Harmon with a plaque in appreciation for his time on the Board of Directors.
OSHNA's membership passed a new set of bylaws on April 26th via mail-in ballots. We appreciate all the hard work our committee, membership, and even our non-member neighbors put into crafting and passing our new bylaws. However, we recognize that Article I, section 4 was controversial. The Association would like to reach out to our community and begin dialog, as promised, on possible changes to this section.
Barbara Farrar, founding OSHNA member and benefactor, Editor Emeritus of the Advisor, contributor to the Seminole Heights:The Early Years historical DVD, Consortium Trustee and steadfast friend and neighbor passed away on March 29, 2011. May her memory be eternal. Please remember Barbara’s family in your hearts and in your prayers. Our sympathies go out to Doreen DiBona, long-time OSHNA officer and chairperson, loving niece and caregiver to Barbara for many, many years.
The Channel 10 event will be rescheduled. Seminole Heights will not be gathering at the Garden Center on February 23rd. Read below for more information.
When I first moved into the neighborhood in 2000, our letter carrier came to my door and informed me that I was required by postal code to move my mailbox to the curb. I had never heard of this sort of requirement before, but being a new Florida resident, had no way to know if this was true or not. So I called the local post office and asked. Guess what? My letter carrier was not being truthful.
