QUICK LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON IN OCTOBER


COMMUNITY YARD SALE Friday, October 2 and Saturday, October 3, 8 am to 1 pm

**REMINDER FOR THIS WEEKEND** Southern Meadow will be having its Fall Community Yard Sale the first weekend in October. Please join us! It’s a great opportunity to get rid of things that you don’t need or want anymore and make a few bucks doing it.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED


Update on Clubhouse Access

Marisol has advised that the clubhouse will be open every Tuesday at 1 pm (beginning October 6th) exclusively for picking up or exchanging books.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED

All other areas in the clubhouse are not to be used.


Listing of Local Services

Sharon Cowart has compiled a list of local services such as hairdressers, primary care physicians, hospitals, specialists, dentists, veterinary clinics, etc. If you would like a copy, email Sharon.cowart@comcast.net and she will drop one in your mailbox or leave it on your front porch. I found this list very helpful when I was new to Southern Meadow.

SOUTHERN MEADOW RESIDENTS WELLNESS CHECK-IN PROGRAM

The Southern Meadow Residents Wellness Check-in Program is now fully operational and will regularly check on residents. Each street has one or more captains who call to check on residents twice a week. So far, residents in 41 houses have joined this program!


CLOTHING DONATIONS NEEDED VETERANS AT THE WILMINGTON VA

The Wilmington VA needs clothing for Veterans who present to the Emergency Room and GI clinics. As some Veterans may have issues with bed bugs or lice, the new clothing allows the medical staff to get them to the shower and give them fresh clothes before discharge. Sweatshirts and sweatpants in XL XXL, XXXL would be helpful in those efforts.

A BIG THANK YOU FROM JOHNNY’S ANGELS 2020 FUNDRAISING

Johnny’s Angels and The Walk to End Alzheimer’s has come to an end. I want to thank everyone who generously donated in 2020 to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s. I have exceeded my goal! Together, my family, friends and neighbors have raised $1425.00….Way to go everyone!!!!!!!

This year due to the pandemic it was challenging. I missed having the dine out fundraisers. Coming together to share a meal to support this worthy cause is something that I really looked forward to every year. Hopefully next year we can get back to them.

I can never say this enough. I appreciate each one of you from the bottom of my heart.
Your very blessed, grateful friend and neighbor,
Johnny’s Angels Team Captain,
Linda Synden
