Time to get out the masking tape, magic marker and cigar box. Our annual yard sale is coming up fast.
Dear Residents and Home Owners
Bring a snack to share, and your own blanket and seating for personal use, and join the Nortons, the HOA, and other homeowners for an outdoors HUGE screening of this years Super-Bowl game. Homeowners Jerry, and Laura Norton will graciously host and set up a big screen viewing of the Super-Bowl on the side of their 2 story home adjacent to the Basketball court. The HOA will provide tables for the snacks and a hot beverage station, and fire pits to warm the chilly night.
Reminder, for this event the HOA will not be providing seating, so don’t forget your lawn chair.
MAGNOLIA LAKES COMMUNITY, I called the number on the orange tag left on my door and found out some good, and some not so good news. AT&T is out in our neighborhood and they are getting ready to install the fiber optic high speed (supposedly highly reliable cable) called Light-Gig. U-verse is Bright house and so I’ve heard is still copper cable and less reliable….as I’ve said, so I’ve heard, but I don’t have personal knowledge of this. So please don’t go on a defensive attack.
Anyhow, you may have noticed all the lovely orange and red paint marking all over our lawns and streets, as well as utility and AT&T workers out and about the neighborhood. In the next couple of weeks they will be running the Light-Gig cable, but they don’t know when the service will actually be available to us. They will likely be doing some damage to our lawns and streets, but promise to correct any damage done.
Also, the utility companies will be placing flags to spot where our gas, water, and electric lines are running so, IF YOU DON’T WANT BIGGER PROBLEMS, PLEASE LEAVE ALL THE FLAGS IN PLACE UNTIL THIS WORK IS COMPLETED.
If you need to do lawn work, place the flags back in the exact same spot after you’ve completed your work. Everyone should have received a bright orange door tag with a number to call if you have questions or concerns. However, just in case you didn’t, call Ivy Smith, Mon.-Fri., from 7AM-4:30PM @1-407-855-1801. She will graciously do her best to answer your questions.
If any of you out there has Light-Gig service from AT&T please share your experience with us. We’d like to know if it will be worth the switch when it is available to us here.
Magnolia Lakes neighbors, bring your favorite covered dish or dessert to share, bring the family too, and join Santa and his very special helper for a visit and some afternoon fun. CPM will provide the hotdogs and hamburgers, and the HOA will provide beverages, chips, and the Bounce house for the kiddies.
