LACDD NEWS By Christine Wells, LA (LW) CDD Community Director Happy New Year! January is a great time for reflection and anticipation — reflection of the year that has passed and anticipation of the year to come. Plan to spend time at the amenities enjoying all that Florida’s peak season brings. Starting the week at Lake Ashton’s Monday Coffee informational meetings will provide a good overview of upcoming classes, shows, meetings, and parties. Mix it up in 2022 and try sitting at a new table at Monday Coffee! Hundreds of new residents moved to Lake Ashton in 2021, so reach out to new faces and welcome new neighbors. With the increase in population, staff has begun to see an increase in room bookings and activities being offered by residents, so there may be times when a room and or time that is desired may be unavailable. Luckily residents have two buildings in the community, so if a room or time is unavailable at the Clubhouse residents are encouraged to reach out to the HFC to check availability and vice versa. We are excited to see so many residents enjoying the amenities and want to ensure all residents have an equal opportunity to book a room for a new activity or join one of the over 140 groups that currently meet at the Clubhouse. With that being said there are some changes that are going to take place as of January 1. This includes the renaming of "private" groups to "prior registration required.” Residents interested in joining a new group should visit the Clubhouse Activities Desk to obtain the contact information for the facilitator of the group they are looking to join. As a reminder, the Joint Amenity Facilities Policy states: "Club membership and Club activities must be available to all Residents or Renters/Leaseholders.” In addition, anyone booking a reservation in the Clubhouse Game Room needs to be aware that as of January 1, that room will be available for multiple activities at the same time. For example, if someone has reserved the Game Room to play cards or conduct a meeting, the room will still be available for open play on the billiards tables. If this does not match your needs staff will try their hardest to find a room better suited for what you require. An extra day of Open Bowling was also added to the schedule to accommodate the increase in use of that amenity. We hope residents understand these changes are not meant to be intrusive but to allow for the amenities to be enjoyed by all who want to use them. Staff always encourages residents to become more involved in community activities designed to benefit the body, mind, and spirit and with these changes and the support of the many club, group, and organization facilitators this will be possible for everyone. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

LAIICDD NEWS By Mary Bosman, LAIICDD Community Director Another year of living in paradise … I hope you never tire of hearing that. OK, everyone knows that there’s nothing that is perfect, but looking at “the glass” as half full instead of half empty goes a long way towards a happier, healthier life. My wish for everyone is to enjoy a life filled with kindness, smiles, positivity, peacefulness, good health, and happiness. A big wish, but individually, we have the power to help make it happen. photo: Dennis Krupinski With this year being the 21st birthday celebration for Lake Ashton, we can look back and see the improvements over the years. Many events will be held at the HFC and the Clubhouse to celebrate the week of January 17th. Stop in and check them out. Good changes continue at the HFC. The Pickleball Courts have the bottom railing in place to secure the fencing as of December. The HFC building and Hwy. 653 Gate House have recently received a new paint job, and new wooden floors will be added to the Racquetball Court and Sports Court this month. In February new flooring will be installed in the Fitness Center. New LED lighting replacements continue at the HFC and so do the savings from these lights. Your LA II CDD Board continues to work diligently to improve your amenities without additional fees. Happy New Year, and Happy Birthday Lake Ashton!

LA ( LW) CDD BOARD OF SUPERVISORS VACANCY Residents interested in being considered to fill the vacancy can submit a resume or letter of interest to the District Manager, Jill Burns (jburns@gmscfl.com) by Wednesday, January 12 at noon. In order to be considered you must be at least 18 years of age, a United States citizen, and registered to vote at an address within the boundaries of Lake Ashton CDD (Lake Wales). The resident selected to fill the vacant seat will serve the remainder of the term until November of 2022. Feel free to contact the District Manager with any questions. WILDLIFE ALERT Alligators and crocodiles are an important part of Florida's heritage and play a valuable role in the ecosystems where they live. Even though the weather might be cooling down, those who live near lakes and ponds should still expect to see alligators from time to time, as evidenced by this picture taken by resident David Muller in mid-November! Remember - never feed or approach an alligator. If you encounter an aggressive alligator, call the Nuisance Alligator Hotline: 1-866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). Alligators under 4 feet in length are not considered a threat to humans. As long as residents have a healthy respect for wildlife, including alligators, there are opportunities to live and let live. LAKE ASHTON COMMUNITY ACTION COMMITTEE By Shelley Miller The booming residential housing developments in the area are straining the roads, water, sewer and 12 power everyone enjoys. The LA Community Action Committee was formed to advocate for changes the group would like to see to ensure the safety and welfare of Lake Ashton residents. The January issue of the LA Times includes a flyer with more information and a survey to provide feedback from you to better represent the Lake Ashton Community. Additional comments are we l c omed — you c a n ema i l t hem t o LakeAshtonCommunityAction@gmail.com. An LA Community Action Committee meeting for all residents is planned to field concerns, questions, and ask for help in bringing this problem to the attention of decision-makers. This informational meeting will be held January 10 after Monday Coffee in the Clubhouse Ballroom around 10 am. All Lake Ashton residents who are interested in this topic are invited to attend. AQUATIC EDUCATION CORNER What is a littoral shelf and why does my pond have to have one? By design, some of the ponds in Lake Ashton contain littoral shelves, which are shallow planted wetland areas within the pond. Regulatory agencies, such as SWFWMD require that littoral shelves be vegetated. These areas are usually about 1-2 feet in depth and occupy approximately 30% of the pond. Littoral shelves provide emergent aquatic vegetation the appropriate water depth necessary to thrive. This vegetation competes with algae for space, light and nutrients and helps to filter out pollutants such as heavy metals, oils and fertilizers. The thicker and denser the littoral vegetation, the less sunlight, living space and nutrients for algae growth. Ponds and littoral shelves can provide an aesthetically pleasing and healthy habitat for a wide variety of wildlife including fish, birds and reptiles.

NEW GOLF CART PARKING AREA AT THE CLUBHOUSE Several comments on the Focus 2025 survey mentioned parking being an issue at the amenities. The first Entertainment Series Show is on January 14, so this will be the first day of testing out golf cart parking on the Basketball Court during that show. Signage will be placed at the entrance to the parking lot advising residents that there is additional golf cart parking on the Basketball Court. Email blasts will be sent with pictures letting residents know where this additional parking is as well. This area will be available as an "overflow parking only" area during large events. As always, residents are encouraged to car or cartpool to highcapacity events at the amenities. OPEN BOWL ING AT ASHTON LANES An extra date has been added, so now residents can enjoy Open Bowling on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. Stop by Ashton Tap and Grill, grab a drink and enjoy a game of bowling with friends. Instructions are on the bulletin board in the back of the room. Shoes and bowling balls are available for use. Please be sure to put the bowling balls and shoes back when done using them. LAKE ASHTON LEADERSHIP Those in a leadership position for Lake Ashton clubs, groups or organizations can attend an informative session February 23 at 11 am in the Clubhouse Ballroom. Leaders will find out more about resources and support facilitated by staff. Topics include setting up electronic mail messages, planning events, clerical support, amenity policies, and more. The purpose of the session is to ensure organizational leaders know all of the available tools for a club’s continued success: promotion, media, support, guidelines, and more. While the session is designed for new leaders, anyone interested in the topic is welcome to attend. Please sign up in advance at the Clubhouse Activities Desk Information wall or by using the online sign-up tool so adequate materials are prepared.

CARING TREE By Larry & Joanne Hillock We wish to extend our sincere thanks to all of the TOYS FOR TOTS By Fred & Cynthia Halde Lake Ashton … you did it again! When the call went out to the community for support of "Toys for Tots", you responded, again, like you always do … with kindness and generosity. Your contributions will most certainly put a smile on the faces of many young people this holiday season. Well done! And many thanks to the HFC staff who helped with this effort, especially Krystle, who would call at least twice a week with the same five welcomed words: "The box is full again!” You are great, HFC. Many thanks! Peace to all. generous LA residents who donated gifts and gift cards to the Caring Tree. The need this year was even greater than last year and you responded by exceeding last year's generous donations. A special thank you to BOLLA who donated 65 blankets, Sew What who donated 75 handmade items, and the LA Niners who donated 213 gifts. The Lake Wales Care Center passes along their heartfelt "thank you" to everyone. You helped make a very merry Christmas for so many families in the area. BE A SANTA TO A SENIOR By Kathryn Jusaites On behalf of the Home Instead office in Winter Haven, we would like to thank the Lake Ashton Community for their participation in the Be A Santa To A Senior program this year. Your generosity and kindness are very much appreciated. THANK YOU FROM THE LA BENEF IT ASSOCIATION A huge thank you to the many Lake Ashton residents who have helped us raise funds for the local schools. It took many hands to run the Casino Night Benefit and we are so very grateful for all the time and effort you have given over the years. The schools have been very appreciative of our help. The last donation has been delivered by way of the Lake Wales Charter School Foundation. The need is still great so never stop helping the schools when you see an opportunity. 14 FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!

Wildlife Corner Photo & Article By Barbara Ann Comer The Ruby-Throated Hummingbird is a gem flying on wings and a year-round resident in Lake Ashton. The male sports the iridescent ruby-red gorget. The hummingbird family, found only in the Americas, includes the smallest birds in the world. Their iridescent colors shine brilliantly depending on the light. These highly-territorial acrobats fly up, down, backwards, sideways and hover in one spot on wing beats as fast as up to 80 times per second. What's the best way to attract them? Hummingbird feeders are a lot of work to keep clean and safe for the birds. Those who use feeders should not use dye since it may harm the birds. Instead, a red ribbon tied to the feeder can get their attention. Landscaping with a small tree surrounded by Firebush or Firecracker is the safest and most effective way to provide perches and the high-energy nectar they need and love. Keep your eyes open — they are really fast! JOINT AMENITY FACI L ITIES POLICY HIGHLIGHT Each month an excerpt from the Joint Amenity Facilities Policy will be featured in the LA Times.

ENTRANCE GATE SAFETY SAFETY NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH By Fay Wood, NW Chief The Lake Ashton Neighborhood Watch (which counts every resident as a deputized member) has expanded its mission of keeping a watch out for crime to watching out for unsafe traffic behavior involving commercial vehicles such as lawn care services, delivery services, or construction vehicles. All members should be vigilant for unsafe traffic practices in the community (i.e. stop sign violations, excessive speed or parking in a way that hinders the normal flow of traffic). As a leader in this Committee and an already successful crime deterrent/prevention partner with CAP, LA Security Officers and other Community Leaders, NW has a perfect venue to keep an eye out for traffic safety concerns throughout the community. If you see an unsafe condition involving a commercial vehicle, note the company name, phone number if available, as well as time and location of the incident. Then notify either the Community Director where the incident occurred, or the company directly. Neighborhood Watch and its partners have been instrumental in keeping Lake Ashton a relatively crime free community and adding these efforts to ensure traffic safety will further enhance our community’s safety. Happy and Safe New Year to all! All vehicles, including golf carts, must obey all stop signs and the 20 mph speed limit throughout Lake Ashton. Drivers, watch for pedestrians at all times. Obeying posted speed limit and traffic signs can help avert a potential tragedy. 20 Please use caution when entering and exiting the commun i ty v i a t h e T h omp s o n Nursery Road entrance. The entry gates are not on a sensor. They are set to open for three seconds and then close. If cars stop at the stop sign and then hit the button to open the gate that will give enough time for one vehicle to go through the gate. If residents hit the button on the gate opener coming off of Thompson Nursery Road it does not allow for enough time for the vehicle to make it through the gate and could potentially cause damage to your vehicle and the gate arm. If any of the gates are damaged due to negligence on the driver's part any costs involved with the replacement or repair of the gate arm will be the responsibility of the driver. When exiting the community, any vehicle close to the height of the overhang should use the right lane to exit the community even if turning left on Thompson Nursery Road. Not doing so puts your vehicle at risk of damage not to mention possible property damage that will be the responsibility of the driver. If unsure if the vehicle is close to the height of the overhang please err on the side of caution and use the right side to exit. Any questions regarding the operation of the entry and exit gates should be directed to Christine Wells at cwells@lakeashtoncdd.com. CITIZEN’S ASSISTED PATROL (CAP) By Mike Weissberg CAP is always looking for more volunteers to patrol the streets. Come help be the eyes, ears, and presence for the Sheriff’s department. Patrols are once a week for two hours. Applications are available in the Clubhouse and HFC. For more information contact Mike Weissberg 863-324-3541 (please leave a message).

She attended Butler County College and became an LPN. She met John Milsom at a high school reunion and they have been together for the last 10 years. She and John are temporary snowbirds but they plan on making Lake Ashton their full time residence in the next year. As she said, they “found the light.” Sandy and John were looking for a pet friendly 55+ community, as they have two dogs, and they came across Lake Ashton. They drove through the front entrance and Sandy said, “It was like someone had sprinkled pixie dust on me.” She was hooked from the very first visit. They looked at homes one day, put a deposit down the next and went to the design center on the third, as they were returning to Pennslyvania. Sandy has been playing golf on and off for about 15 years but only played 9-hole games up north. She enjoys playing with the 18-holers especially since there is a variety of games played. In addition to golf, Sandy enjoys Bunco, Aqua Motion, her neighbors and traveling with a group of women whom she’s known for 25 years. They enjoy traveling all over the world. Welcome to the LALGA and Lake Ashton Sandy Hockenberry!

LA TRAVELERS HOLIDAY CELEBRATION By Carolyn Bishop The LA Travelers have finished out 2021 with a November Rally at the nearby Cabana Club RV Resort and a December Home For The Holidays Dinner Dance at the Clubhouse. The November Rally was jammed packed with fun and fellowship at the new RV Resort in Auburndale. A Chain of Lakes boat tour was one of the highlights of the weekend. A competitive corn hole tournament had to take place inside due to some rainy weather and many also put on their creative caps and made some beautiful Holiday wreaths. John Tice and crew grilled up some delicious meals and fun and fellowship was had by all. The Home for the Holidays Dinner Dance completed the year right here at home with over 125 members celebrating this holiday season. DJ Wayne kept the party hopping and the very own LAdybug Quartet honored the group with some lovely Christmas songs. The C l u b i s c u r r e n t l y collecting dues for the 2022 season.

LA REPUBLICANS By Brenda Bush-Sayre The Lake Ashton Republican Club held their annual Christmas Party at the HFC on December 11. There were over 100 members and guests in attendance and it was an awesome night for everyone who enjoyed great food, sang Christmas carols with the LA Ashtones, and danced to music from the 60s-70s, performed by the LA Wrecking Crew. The January meeting will be held at the Clubhouse on January 26 from 4 to 6 pm. Social time will begin at 3:30. This month’s speaker will be JC Martin who is the Chairman of the Polk County Republican Executive Committee. He will discuss party priorities for 2022 and will officiate the election of officers. All members and LA residents are invited. Contact Brenda BushSayre, (813)313-9911, bbs1954@icloud.com for more information. LA ROCKERS By Connie Strassberg Happy New Year! LA Rockers wishes all the members, potential members, friends, and admirers a happy, healthy, and productive 2022. December was wonderful. On December 1, the group learned to make pebble art — gluing small pebbles to larger rocks to create a scene or design. There are definitely some wonderful pebble artists in the group. The annual holiday cupcake party was held on December 15, and exchanged "Socks and Rocks" creations. In addition, more than enough painted rocks were created to donate holiday rocks to all the residents of the Brookdale Nursing Home on Cypress Gardens Blvd. The extra rocks were spread throughout the Lake Ashton Community in order to bring holiday cheer to LA neighbors. Come to the HFC Community Center on alternate Wednesdays from 2 to 4 pm to meet a great group of people and learn to paint rocks. It’s free! There is no need for first timers to make a huge investment for supplies — you can borrow what you need. Upcoming meetings are January 12 and 26 — come see what the group is about! To do so, join the Facebook group "LA Rockers" or contact either MJ Richards or Alice Mayer and let them know you are coming. Once again, happy 2022! SEW WHAT A ND SO MUCH MORE By Gretchen Frantz The name Sew What and So Much more reflects the great variety of crafts enjoyed by the members. The group meets every Thursday from 1 to 3 pm in the HFC craft room. Expanded beyond craft sewing, the Thursday afternoon sessions may include projects in knitting, crochet, card stitching, diamond dot painting, cross stitch, needlepoint, wreath making and so much more. The knitters and crocheters work year round making hats, scarves and afghans for charity. More than 450 hats have been delivered to schools in Lake Wales and Winter Haven, and dozens of lap robes and afghans to church and hospice organizations. Come and share your works in progress, refresh an old skill or learn something new with fellow crafters. LA WOODWORKERS ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING By Fred Powell Lake Ashton Woodworkers will be holding their annual Membership meeting on January 17 at 10:30 am in the Clubhouse after Monday Coffee. At this meeting the election of new officers will be held. Current members will need to sign the 2022 waiver form and pay the annual dues. Residents interested in joining should attend the meeting to sign up. LA SWIM CLUB By Sandy White The LA Swim Club is full of action! LASC members, Cathy Liska and Sharon Swanson, excelled at the 2021 Florida State Senior Games. They were among the top swimmers who competed December 11 and 12 in Coral Springs. Sharon and Cathy have qualified to compete at the National Championships in May, plus Cathy brought home a gold and two silver medals and Sharon swam three personal best times. Congratulations, ladies, and everyone wishes you

fast swims at Nationals. The Florida State Games are 30-years-old this year and are part of the National Senior Games organization. Did you know that the FL Senior Games organization offers 21 sports or recreation activities through 19 regional games? Polk County offers one of those, but, unfortunately, the 2022 Polk Co. Games have cancelled all indoor events, including swimming, due to the pandemic. The Swim Club has donated a giant digital clock to the HFC pool. Most clocks are hard to see for many swimmers. This multi-function clock is highly visible and can help water exercise instructors, lap swimmers, water walkers, and swim club group workouts. The LA Swim Club invites you to come swim with them. Three group workouts are offered each week for anyone looking for great over all and injury free exercise, those who don't like to swim alone, and those looking for motivation to get fit and stay fit. All interest levels are welcome. See the HFC schedule for Club workout times. For more information, contact sandyw1994@aol.com. LA PICKLEBALL ASSOCIATION By Chuck Caesar Happy New Year from the Lake Ashton Pickleball Association! LAPA is excited to kick off the new year with a clinic for anyone interested in learning the game or improving their skills. The clinic will focus on basic skills but is perfect for others just wanting to brush up on their game for the new year. Calvin Eakins will lead the clinic on January 6, January 13, and January 20 at 2 pm. This is a great way to learn the rules of the game, improve your pickleball skills, and meet new people. The second event will be the annual meeting on January 25 at the HFC. It will include a potluck dinner. For those planning to attend there is a signup sheet at the HFC. At the annual meeting, officers for the 2022 year will be elected, a financial update will be provided, and any other issues of concern to the members will be discussed. If you are interested in serving as an 39 officer in the LAPA, please let one of the current officers, Calvin Eakins, Lisa Savala or Chuck Caesar, know. Also, please let them know if there are any topics that you would like included on the agenda for the meeting. Thank you to the members of the CDD board for authorizing the improvements to the fences around the pickleball courts. This has really improved play. LAPA is looking forward to a great year and many new pickleball friendships! LAVA AUXILIARY By Chris Graves Next Meeting: January 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Clubhouse Ballroom, near the stage.
