The Farm HOA held its first monthly meeting for 2021 on Jan. 12. There were no resident concerns and no reports from our committees. With the virus and the holidays, there was little going on in The Farm. President Scott Kavana did give a report on the irrigation on Mill Street. You may have…
By the time this column is out, we will have a new president in Joseph Biden along with a new vice president, Kamala Harris. I hope this will mean a change for the good in the direction we are heading. The last four years for me have been four years of lies and bullying and I’m really tired …
A Plantation Lakes family is proudly honoring their daughter in U.S. Marine Corps boot camp with a banner outside their front door. We thank her and all military for their service. Waccamaw Management sent them a warning letter to take the banner down as it is against the covenants. The fami…
At Trinity United Methodist Church in Conway you can find a small white building called the Cordie Page house. It’s used by the church for small gatherings.
The board of directors held a cyber conference for its monthly meeting on Thursday night, Jan. 7. They approved modifications to the boat ramp at the clubhouse.
Merging into traffic from an exit to get back onto I-95 made me think, for the first time in years, of “A My Name is Alice,” the jump rope chant we sing-songed, maneuvering our legs around the rope.
I hope you all had a very happy New Year’s Day and a merry Christmas. It certainly was a holiday season I will remember. We did nothing, saw no one, didn’t take our annual pilgrimage to New Jersey. Most people I know had about the same holiday week as Susan and I. Let’s all hope 2021 brings …
It is the beginning of a new year and I hope it’s a healthier and safer year. With the rollout of the vaccine in the coming months, things should slowly get back to normal.
Hope that everyone had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. We enjoyed watching the magnificent but illegal fireworks displays that lit up the skies of Plantation Lakes at various places. The heavy rain by day did not hinder the great display.
Spent this week getting the house back in order after being gone for two weeks. Christmas tree is up and wreaths are hanging from outside lights. This is the one time of the year that I miss the snow (for about a day). Christmas just isn’t the same without some white stuff.
I thank the residents who took the time to call our management company to say they like the holiday decorations. Many thanks go to the grounds committee for installing them all, and the activity committee for purchasing new ones.
Spreading joy exchanging holiday cards and gifts with family and friends, decorating homes and businesses makes this time of year wonderful.
I love the new decorations at the front of Covington Lake, especially the grinch and snowman. Thank you to Peter Lucarelli and his elves for all the work.
Many homes have gotten an early start on the holidays. You see many homes decorated and our entrances were decorated and lit up the day after Thanksgiving.
Thursday, Nov. 26, Plantation Lakes’ annual turkey trot was chaired by David Turner and Michal Kovac. Famous Toastery owner Tim McGinnis and his daughter provided healthy snacks.
As I write my column, Norm and I are in Glassell Park, California, outside of Los Angeles. We drove here from Myrtle Beach via stops in Memphis, Tennessee, Amarillo, Texas, and Flagstaff, Arizona.
The Waterford Plantation board of directors has announced that due to concerns with the increasing number of COVID cases in Horry County, all Waterford events are canceled for the remainder of 2020.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving. I know that it probably was different from previous years with smaller family groups but hopefully, next year, we can get back to normal times.
The spring golf league turned into an all summer league as well. They held their awards presentation at River Oaks Golf Club. The winner was Gus White. Second place went to Steve Filak and third place to Glen Muzroll. No date has been set for the spring season.
Monday night Nov. 9 was Plantation Lakes’ annual 2020 property owners’ association meeting. The terms of president Joel Busby and treasurer Josh Chastain expired. At this meeting, two directors were elected to serve two-year terms.
Last week I asked for residents to email me and let me know what they think about the proposed hospital next to The Farm. Response was poor so I figure most don’t have an opinion.
As I write my column, we have just elected a new President of the United States. My hope is that President Biden can bring this country back together, strengthen our bonds with our allies all over the world and get this pandemic under control until a vaccine is available.
Big shout out of thanks to Waterford, the events committee and volunteers who created an amazing Trunk & Treat at our amenity center on Oct 31. There was a large turnout of residents and so many happy children, laughing and having a great time.
Nov. 11, Veterans Day, we honor and thank all Americans who served and sacrificed for our nation in war or peace, alive or deceased.
It is Nov. 1 as I write my column. How this year has flown by. We had about 50 trick-or-treaters last night. Norm wore his mask to pass out candy and pencils. It was probably a good night to let kids be kids and some adults be kids.
Sunday, Nov. 1, Daylight Savings Time ended. It will get darker one hour earlier each evening now. Remember to change your smoke detector batteries.
Please note the following message I received from Tom and Theresa Gouker who have both been very active with the Quilt of Valor foundation:
For three weeks I have been telling you the Wheatfield Drive entrance was going to be beautified. The day the work was scheduled to be completed, I woke up to it raining. My first thought was, “How can I explain again that the entrance was not completed?”
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 31 from 4-6 p.m. for a Trunk or Table and Treat on the tennis/basketball courts at the amenity center for Halloween.
Thursday, Oct. 15, the delicious ladies’ luncheon was held at Greg Norman’s Australian Grille in Barefoot Landing, hosted by vivacious Debbie Bonner.
Finally sitting down to write my column after a busy community yard sale day. I don’t think it was as busy as our spring yard sale, but since we were the first yard sale this spring after the pandemic, I think there was a lot of pent-up demand.
