Message from the President

February, 2015

Greetings neighbors. I hope everyone is keeping warm as this very cold month closes. I’d like to update you on a few things going on in your civic league.

Whitney Kochheiser, area representative of N2Publishing, and Masala Bites hosted a great dinner event on an icy night February 19th. Members who responded to the call in Lago Mar Living were treated to a variety of the unique offerings this wonderful gem of a restaurant offers. If you are looking for an enjoyable evening with traditional Indian cuisine, Masala Bites is the place.

Spring is coming and we’re planning to paint the entrances along Sandbridge Road. Landscape Chairman Scott Carlson is organizing a painting party for the Entrada and Las Brisas entrances. If you can share part of your April 18th, please give Scott a call or text at 705-3033.

I recently received a message and pictures of young boys who were using the weir behind the small park at Back Bay as a skateboard bowl. The entire weir had been intentionally blocked with debris to keep water out and took hours to remove. Parents, please remind your children that this is a water control device used to maintain water levels in Back Bay’s retention lakes – and not a skate park. I was told water levels dropped 12” after the debris was removed.

I’m excited to announce the May 15th return of the Lago Mar Scholarship Golf Tournament. Jeff Patrell is taking the lead and it promises to be a fun outing. If you are interested in fielding a foursome or sponsoring a hole, reach out to Jeff at 739-4294.

Need to make room for a car in your garage? Bob Armour is taking the challenge to hold a neighborhood wide garage sale. If you know Bob, you know it will be a success. Bob asks that you reach out to him if you are interested.  ten.x1440874378oc@ru1440874378omraa1440874378rtepb1440874378ob1440874378
