Manager’s Report January 2018

Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe the year 2018 has come and gone, and 2019 is already here! Many improvement projects were completed this past year, and we are looking forward to continuing the positive progress this year.

The completion and grand opening of the new room and balcony extension was a huge success. A special thanks to Bill Hook and the Project Review and Long Range Planning Committee, Palladio General Contractors and all the others for planning and carrying out this wonderful project. The ribbon cutting ceremony, prime rib dinner, free pie and prizes were all enjoyed. Another great night at SunBird.

December was full of festive and fun activities. We thank the many, many clubs, groups, organizations and individuals involved who organize and plan these great events. Many more new activities are planned for this year. Some of the exciting plans are the tribute concert shows, bus trips to new and fun places and new live entertainment. Tickets to these trips and shows are selling quickly and are selling out. Don’t hesitate to join the fun.

In 2019 improvement and maintenance projects planned are new carpet for many areas in the clubhouse, exterior painting of the clubhouse, road maintenance and replacement in sections, common area phase two of the landscape irrigation replacement project, replacement of some sections of common area lighting, some clubhouse air conditioner replacements, replacement of sport courts (one and two) with post tension concrete, website reconstruction, replacement of some lapidary equipment and some kitchen equipment.

As the 2018 year has ended, completing all of the reports, tax information, license renewals, etc., is in the works. The independent annual financial audit is also underway. This is the time of year with activities in full swing, closing out the prior year’s books and starting the new year.

We wish you all a healthy and Happy New Year!
