HOSTING FAMILY FOR SPRING BREAK? March is a traditional time for family and friends to escape the cold up north and come to visit those lucky enough to live at Lake Ashton. Remember that when you see a visiting grandchild they are guests of your neighbors so please extend every courtesy possible. Residents, please be tolerant of extra activity at the pool and other Clubhouse amenities. Those hosting family should remind them to be considerate of residents in this 55 and older community. It is helpful if a resident accompanies their guests at any of the amenities. Golf carts should be driven only by those 14 years and older in Lake Wales and 16 years and older in Winter Haven. All drivers (car and golf carts) must observe the stop signs and 20 mph speed limit. Adults should not place young children on their laps between them and the steering wheel as this creates a hazardous condition for the children in the case of a panic stop or accident. JOINT AMENITIES POLICY Each month an excerpt from the newly adopted Joint Amenities Policy will be featured in the LA Times. The full policy can be found on the CDD websites: lakeashtoncdd.com or lakeashton2cdd.com. Listed below is the specific policy that is in place for the Pavilion at the Clubhouse. Recently Staff has noticed the Pavilion being left dirty with trash not properly disposed of in the dumpster (east parking lot) and grills not being cleaned following residents functions. Please be mindful of #5 below. The facilitator of the group or reservation holder is solely responsible for ensuring all of these policies are adhered to when utilizing this specific Amenity. Please reach out to Christine Wells, LA (LW) CDD Community Director via email at (cwells@lakeashtoncdd.com) with any questions. PAVILION (page 21) 1.
