Please keep staff at the Clubhouse or HFC informed with any feedback or questions regarding any concerns about the respective amenities and resident services to ensure that 2023 is the best year yet at Lake Ashton.

However, others may be struggling with the “first” holiday season alone or yet another without a loved one, so please be kind to everyone and take the time to listen to your neighbors. The next LA II Board of Supervisors meeting will follow the Budget Planning Workshop scheduled for Tuesday, January 10th. The workshop begins at 9 AM and the regular meeting will follow. The next Joint Boards of Directors meeting will take place at the HFC on Friday January 20th. At the last Joint meeting, the review of the Joint Amenities Policies was discussed, and Christine and I are both awaiting final approval so that we can move forward with the new policies for 2023. The HFC welcomes new participants into the Fitness Classes if you’ve made a resolution to get more fit in 2023. If you don’t know which class to start with, stop over, speak to one of the instructors or staff, or audit one to see if it’s a good fit. All LA II CDD sponsored classes are free of charge to residents Monday thru Friday AMs. Of course, we welcome back residents who have already taken the plunge! There will also be a DJ Dance on lucky Friday, January 13th. No negative vibes allowed, only fun and dancing! The Annual Fitness Expo will be on Friday, January 27th with many vendors offering products, services, and freebies for all who attend. The timeframe will be from 8 AM until noon for this event. Door prizes are of quality and plentiful as well. It’s been a busy year for the Lake Ashton II CDD. Many issues have been implemented, resolved, replaced, or fixed. I’d like to thank the LA II CDD Board, volunteers, and my staff for their teamwork throughout the year. Christine and her staff, and the LA I CDD Board have also been great to work with. Also, a huge thanks of course to the many residents at Lake Ashton who make coming to work a pleasure! As I end 2022, I have a rumor to clear up. As of the end of February, I will be retiring and moving to South Carolina. Family is important to us, so we have made the decision to move closer to them. We may however, become snowbirds after a year or so. Please know that I have enjoyed my work here at Lake Ashton since early 2006 immensely and will think back fondly to many, many fun times. I wish only the best for everyone here. 10


HOMELESS GRADUATING SENIORS By Doris Reisinger YOU ARE AWESOME, LAKE ASHTON! By Fred Halde At the time of the writing of this article, there is one week left for the collection of Toys for Tots, and I am proud to say that up to this point, your kindness and generosity has been amazing. I have taken 5 BIG loads of toys to the central collection warehouse and I know I have two more on the way before the box is put away for another year. Lake Ashton has come through again with its outreach and compassion. Smiles will be showing up all over the area because of your generous support. So from Toys for Tots, Rotary on the Ridge and myself … I offer you a heart-felt word of thanks. I hope you had a joyous and blessed holiday. Sponsored by Rotary on the Ridge. Contact is Fred Halde (231-343-0638, haldepcusa@gmail.com). CARING TREE By Larry & Joanne Hillock The staff at the Lake Wales Care Center asked us to pass on their gratitude to the "awesome" Lake Ashton residents for all of your generous donations. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all neighbors who helped so many families in the area have a Merry Christmas. A special thank you to BOLLA, the Sew What Group and the ladies golf leagues for their over the top contributions. I'm here again this year tapping your GENEROSITY! I have a grandson graduating from college in May. And I often think of all the support he has had from family and friends in achieving this goal. Where would he be if he had NO family or friend support? In Polk County there again are well over a hundred students who want to go to college. But sadly they have no family and the state ends their support when they graduate from high school. This is how you can help. Monetary donations in any amount small or large. Gift cards in the amount of $5, $10 or $15, from restaurants or stores. Items such as sheets, personal items (tooth paste, shampoo, deodorant)for a duffel bag for the summer. We also hope to award some scholarships as we have done in the past. Last year we had enough donations for five. I am planning to have a banner again this year at the Monday morning meetings please stop by and sign. (No donation required). Donations can be left at either Activities Desk. Any questions or donations to be picked up feel free to contact 217-652-6636 or miker0343@yahoo.com. LA BLACK HERITAGE CLUB By Norman Wilderson Although small in numbers, the Lake Ashton Black Heritage Club is big in community support. The club members continued to support community charitable organizations with monetary support and voluntary service. Members presented a check of $400 to the Lake Wales Care Center along with donating clothing and household goods. The Club made a $500 donation to the Polk County Public Schools in support of its Hearth Project (Homeless Education Advocates Restoring The Hope). The Club in the past years has provided both monetary and school supplies to the Chain of Lakes Elementary School, the John Snively Elementary School, and the Hearth Project. See page 35 for more information on the Club. FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!

Wildlife Corner Photo & Article By Barbara Ann Comer Native Flowers of Central The catbird is an abundant "snow bird" in Florida including Lake Ashton. This bird is similar in size and shape to its close relative the Northern Mockingbird. However, unlike the Mockingbird, the Catbird is shy and not likely to sit at the highest point in your backyard drawing attention to itself. Appropriately named, its call sounds like a cat! They are dark gray with a black cap and a little russet under the tail which is frequently cocked. Invite them into your yard by planting an American Beauty Berry Bush. Multiple Catbirds will visit your yard especially at dawn and dusk to devour the magenta berries until none remain. gr ay NUISANCE PLANT HIGHLIGHT: TORPEDOGRASS Torpedograss first appeared in the United States in the early 1800s. It was planted as a forage grass for cattle and livestock, but it quickly b e c a m e o u t o f control, spreading i n t o wa t e r wa y s . Torpedograss is a type of invasive grass that grows quickly and widely in bodies o f wa t e r. I f no t treated immediately, 14 Florida By Lynn Davis A must have for any gardener wanting to plant an excellent pollinator for the 3 B’s: butterflies, bees and birds, gaillardia pulchella is known most commonly as the blanket flower. This daisylike flower can grow to the height of 12 to 18 inches and easily spreads. It has a long blooming season here in Central Florida. It’s red or yellow petals are best from mid-spring to late summer but, may bloom anytime thereafter. Dividing this plant will encourage it to become fuller and last longer. Though it tolerates some shade, blanket flowers thrive best in full sun. Gaillardias sold at many retail outlets usually are non-native. Why plant Gaillardia in your yard? As with most native plants, Gaillardias are very easy to maintain. It tolerates sandy soil and dry conditions. It is almost pest and disease free. You’ll also find that it’s a winner in hard to grow spots. Make sure to plant where it can easily spread for the best “wow” factor. You’ll be rewarded with beneficial visitors of butterflies, bees and birds because of its excellent nectar. For more information and nurseries selling this flower visit plantrealflorida.org. this grass can obstruct water flow and limit recreational use of lakes and ponds. Torpedograss can be difficult to eradicate. In order to keep Lake Ashton's waterways free of this invasive grass, Lake Ashton staff and our aquatics vendor conduct on-site tours of each pond and ensure there is a treatment plan in place.

Come help be the eyes, ears, and presence for the Sheriff’s department. Applications are available in the Clubhouse and HFC. More information: Mike Weissberg, 863-324-3541. NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH By Fay Wood, NW Chief Good Home Safety - Light Timers (Courtesy of Law Enforcement) Lighting is an effective tool to show your residence is occupied. A home that is dark, especially at night sends a message that there’s nobody home. Timers can be as simple or elaborate as you like. The wide range of units can offer everything from single to multiple day programming with varying times for operation. Pick a timer that you are comfortable with and install in multiple locations. Varying the times enhances the appearance of a home being occupied and easier in and outs for homeowners and visitors. Other tips include: • Use timers on lights, radios and even television sets • Use near windows, but be sure to have the window coverings closed. • Use timers on exterior lights especially near the property front • Use timers even for shorter periods of time. Should you be late coming home, your lights will indicate that someone is home and you’ll feel better walking into your home with lights on. • Shop around for the very long lasting LED light bulbs!

2023 ENTERTAINMENT SERIES TICKETS Individual tickets for the 2023 Entertainment Series go on sale January 10 at the Clubhouse Activities Office. Tickets are sold only to Lake Ashton residents — please have your Lake Ashton photo identification available. 5 pm Premium - $35 5 pm Regular - $30 8 pm Premium - $40 8 pm Regular - $35 HOW TO BE A GOOD AUDIENCE MEMBER AT SHOWS TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONE Somehow the most obvious rule of good show etiquette is still the most often disregarded. Be present for the moment and turn your cell phone off or on silent. DON’T SEND TEXT MESSAGES DURING THE SHOW You may think you’re being incognito, but in a dark, the light from your cell phone screen is incredibly distracting to those around you. THERE IS NO PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEOING ALLOWED DURING PERFORMANCES This can be very distracting to the other people who are trying to watch the performance. Beyond that, it is distracting to the performers who are prepared to give you the best performance possible. Finally, it is illegal in many instances. The majority of most performance contracts strictly forbid the recording of a performance. It is possible you may be responsible for copyright infringement by recording a live production. DON’T BE THE MANNERS POLICE While it can be irritating when someone’s cell phone goes off during a show, what’s even worse is when the brief breach of etiquette is followed by a series of overreactions from other audience members. Annoyed “Tsks,” “Hmphs,” hisses, snarls, and shouts of “Turn it off!” along with glares can be just as distracting as the original disruption. DON’T TALK DURING THE SHOW A quick whisper to your neighbor, or an audible reaction to something interesting that happened on stage is fine, but keep conversations to after the show or during intermission. DON’T SING ALONG It’s tempting sometimes, we know, but it can be disturbing to those around you. There are a few exceptions to this rule, such as when the performers onstage actually prompt the audience to join in. DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO DRESS UP Although many residents usually dress up a bit, there is no dress code. TRY NOT TO FALL ASLEEP Your snoring may be taken as a protest of sorts, but generally it’s just disruptive to those around you. It’s also insulting to the hard-working performers up onstage. RESPECT THE SPACE AND COMFORT OF THOSE AROUND YOU Seating for the Entertainment Series can be tight, so sometimes a little elbow bumping can’t be helped. But you can practice good etiquette by taking care to not lean into your neighbor or intrude on other people’s already limited leg room.

A batch of those events kick off an action-packed first quarter in 2023 that includes the ever-popular Member-Guest Tournament March 9-11. Here is a list of the games planned for Wednesday’s LAMGA rounds: • January 4: Best 3 nets • January 11: One net on par 5s, two nets on par 4s, and three nets on par 3s • January 18: Pick your partner, two-man best ball gross and net, flighted • January 25: Best net A & D, Best net B & C Annual LAMGA meeting: At the December 7 annual meeting and luncheon, league president Rolly Geyer introduced returning board directors Larry Wilson, Jacques Fleischmann and Tim Wayt as well as new directors Dan Baun and David Kubissa.

If you didn’t make the luncheon, see Karen during morning announcements. She’s got a little sumpin’ for ya. We’re coming into our peak season, so here’s a quick reminder of golf etiquette: near the green keep your cart on the path or out of eyesight of the group behind you – that way when you walk off the green, they can continue to play and not wait for you to move your cart out of their way. Keep the group ahead of you in sight. As more of us are playing, you need to keep up with the pace of play. Play “ready golf” – do I need to say more? Looking for a Vice President and Treasurer to start after the winter season – any takers? Still have questions? Ready to join? Want to be on the Board?

SWIM CLUB By Sandy White LA Swim Club members Cathy Liska, Sandy Papineau, and Sharon Swanson swam in the 31st Florida Senior Games Championships on December 3 and 4, as part of a group of 114 senior swimmers from all over Florida and several other states. These three swimmers competed in 13 events and won two silver, three bronzes, two 4ths, four 5ths, and two 7ths. They, the coach, and their groupies were excited by the excellent finishes, especially since some were their personal best times! The Florida Senior Games are held every year during the first week of December. For the next two years, it will be held in Temple Terrace, FL, which is about an hour west of Lake Ashton. To participate in the state championships one must place in the top 5 of an event at one of the regional meets during the year. There are 20 regional meets in different communities around the state, mostly in the spring and fall. In addition to the state champs meet, LASC has been going as a team to several regional meets each year. The state championships also serve as a qualifier for the 2023 National Senior Games, which will be held next July in Pittsburgh, Pa. In order to participate in the National Games, which is held every other year and rotates around the country, one must meet a qualifying time at the state meet. The goal of all levels of the Senior Games is to provide fun, fellowship, fitness, and fun competition for Florida’s seniors. The focus of the Senior Games is not winning but participating and meeting other senior swimmers. The swimmers, ages 50+, are a mix of abilities and are divided by gender and 10 age groups. The LA Swim Club is open to all swimmers, and multilevel workouts offer an opportunity for fitness, camaraderie, and stroke improvement for all levels of swimming experience. Come join on Mondays from 6 to 7 pm, Wednesdays from 1:45 to 2:45 pm, and/or Saturdays from 10 to 11 am at the Indoor Pool at the HFC. LASC always welcomes new members.

GARDEN CLUB By Lynn Davis The Lake Ashton Garden Club met December 14 and the results of a recent survey were presented. In order to accommodate more residents, the survey offered an opportunity to suggest the best days and times for future meetings.
