There is a lot going on now in Royal Harbor. To keep you in the know here are a few of the items…
You may have noticed the lights on the island on the flag are still out. There is a snag between the city and FPL on this, but I spoke to the city yesterday and they said they will get on it. With the electric off, our cameras are not working, so we need this ASAP.
Also thank Harry and Allison Zea for volunteering to set up and provide the Christmas lights at the entrances again this year. This is a big job and adds a lot to our community. If the electricity gets fixed, this will go up next week. Harry operates Imagine Home Concepts.
The Royal Harbor board is planning 2 Christmas events. One is the Christmas decorating contest for your home. In the Holiday spirit we hope you will take the time to dress your home up for Christmas. We will have a celebrity judge from the city come and judge the homes. There will be 3 prizes $100, $75 and $50 for first, second and third prize. These will be gift certificates to Home Depot. Royal Harbor is one of the most beautiful spots in the world to live in. Dressing your home for the Holidays will enhance our overall image and make the Holiday spirit thrive and flourish in our Community. Please, make the effort to show your pride in our community by joining in. I will be sending more on this in the next few weeks.
Next we are going to have a Christmas event. On December 21,Saturday afternoon , we will have a short Christmas parade down Kingfish road. This will be for everyone, mom’s, dad’s, your children and / or your pets. This will be a one-hour event, and end at the end of Kingfish, with popcorn and soft drinks provided. Santa will be here for the parade and snacks. He will be in my little RED corvette And you may use this time for photo Ops with you and your family. So if you would like to bring your camera we will let you/ Santa and your loved ones pose together by the car. We thought this would make a great photo keepsake.. More on this later.
February 7 is the date we selected for the Royal Harbor Garage Sale. At that time we will get a blanket Royal Harbor permit from the city for all homes. This will enable you to clean out your garage and make a little cash too. We have lots and lots of traffic for this event. Sign ups will start later and more will be coming on this.
The city will be having its first reading on the installation of new water lines into this area this week. Hopefully, this will all pass. Our board is trying to see if we can coat-tail on this project. We are trying to get new cable line put in, a new underground FPL service put in, and possibly install the irrigation water lines into this area. We think that doing this when the road is already torn up would make sense. If you know anything about doing this, or have any connections in any of these industries, contact anyone on our board and help us.
We have had an issue with boats rafting up in the canals. This is not allowed. Now if a friend comes over and rafts up for the afternoon or so that is one thing, but boats rafting up for overnight stays, etc. block the thruway and have to be moved. The police have been notified of this, so if you call them, they should enforce this.
Thanksgiving is just a week away. I Hope it is a wonderful one for you and your family. 33 days to Christmas.
