LACDD NEWS By C h r i s t i n e We l l s , LA ( LW) CDD Commu ni ty Di r e c t or Believe it or not, the first day of Fall is September 22. Even though Lake Ashton residents will not experience the traditional cooler temperatures and leaves changing colors, this does mark a time when friends traveling and visiting family and friends in other parts of the country return home. Welcome your friends and neighbors back to the community by coming out to a Sunday Funday dinner and entertainment at Ashton Tap & Grill, going to an event at the Clubhouse or HFC, or maybe play a round of golf and enjoy a lunch at the Eagle's Nest afterwards. Whatever you choose to do, Lake Ashton is full of opportunities for socializing with friends and neighbors to nurture current relationships and create new friendships. Lake Ashton's Rock the Block event is a great time to lay back and enjoy a carefree, no frills, good oldfashioned block party without the heat or possibility of rain. This event is free and all new residents of Lake Ashton are encouraged to come out and meet the neighbors! Please see page 23 for more information on this event. Oktoberfest is September 29 and what a way to bring in the month of October. There will be a live authentic German performance, food, and lots of beer! Stop by the Activities Desk to get tickets to both of these great events and start the fall off with a bang. At the August 16 Board of Supervisors meeting the budget for fiscal year 2022 was approved with minor changes. The Board also voted to increase the Operations and Maintenance assessment for Lake Wales residents to $1969 (a $94 increase). The Board of Supervisors directed staff to implement signage recommending everyone to wear masks when in the Clubhouse. This signage is now in place and it is recommended to maintain six feet social distancing to keep your neighbors safe. Hands free soap dispensers and faucets are now available in all restrooms and additional hand sanitizing dispensers have been added throughout the Clubhouse. Please see page 16 for more information on how we are working to keep Lake Ashton residents safe. A wrap up report was sent via email blast on August 19 with a summary of actions taken at this meeting. Any resident that did not receive this wrap up report can request a copy by sending an email to cwells@lakeashtoncdd.com. The next Board of Supervisors meeting is Monday, September 20 at 9:30 in the Clubhouse Ballroom.

LAIICDD NEWS BY M a r y B o s m a n , L A I I C D D C o mm u n i t y D i r e c t o r The temperatures outside recently are sizzling, but there’s plenty of cool activities available inside at the Health and Fitness Center (HFC). Walking inside in the Community Center is a great option as are the various indoor gaming opportunities. Corn hole sets, billiards, our new pool/golf game, ping pong, basketball, racquetball, and our multiple Wii games are awaiting your use in the comfort of air conditioning. The indoor swimming pool will also keep off the damaging rays of sun, so you can swim for longer periods of time without your skin burning or becoming leathery and wrinkled. For those of you who visit our Fitness Center, check out the new recumbent bike. New massage room conveniences have been added as well. COVID updates…you’ll see our Wearing is Caring posters around the HFC and staff will always have a mask with them, so ask them to put one on while you interact if you wish…they will likely ask if you want them to put it on first though!

Wildlife JOINT AMENITY FACI L ITIES POLICY HIGHLIGHT Corner by Barbara Ann Comer The Roseate Spoonbill is a really flashy bird that can be found at Lake Ashton most frequently in the summer after breeding birds have dispersed. These large pink wading birds are often mistakenly identified as flamingos. The only expected pink bird at Lake Ashton (and in most of Florida) is the Roseate Spoonbill. It can vary quite a bit in color from pale pink to hot pink! Unlike flamingos the color of the Spoonbill has nothing to do with diet and everything to do with age. Males and females are identical in plumage and females are just as bright as the males as they age. The Spoonbill is named for its bill with a flattened, spoon-shaped tip. They swing their bills from side to side in shallow water while feeding on small fish, crustaceans and insects. They fly with their legs and necks outstretched. Places to see them at Lake Ashton include any body of water, but they seem to especially favor the stream beyond the driving range near the beginning of the West Course. Each month an excerpt from the Joint Amenity Facilities Policy will be featured in the LA Times. This month outlines the policy regarding interacting with wildlife at Lake Ashton. The full Joint Amenity Facilities Policy can be found online at lakeashtoncdd.com or lakeashton2cdd.com under "Additional District Documents". Contact Christine Wells (cwells@lakeashtoncdd.com) or Mary Bosman (mbosman@lakeashton2cdd.com) with questions. WILD LIF E 1. When using the Amenity Facilities, including especially outdoor areas and spaces, please adhere to the following guidelines in regards to non-domesticated animals (“Wildlife”): 25 I. Wildlife encountered within the Amenity Facilities should never be approached. II. Never leave small children unattended. III. Never feed wild animals, or leave food/garbage unattended. IV . Wildlife are likely to be present in all natural waters or wetlands. Please take caution and be vigilant when close to such areas. 2. The Lake Ashton Community is a natural Wildlife habitat; therefore, exercise caution and vigilance at all times. 3. Please visit the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s website for more information regarding interaction with Wildlife common to Florida, found here: https://myfwc.com/ conservation/you-conserve/ wildlife/ RA B IES A LER T There have been four positive cases of rabies in the Polk County area reported this year so far. Please ensure your pets are currently vaccinated for rabies and report any suspicious acting animals you encounter to the Polk County Sheriff's Office Animal Control at 863-577-1762. 10


SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE FOR WAHNETA ELEMENTARY By Carolyn Bishop To say the school was overwhelmed with Lake Ashton’s generosity would be an understatement. Each carload of supplies was met with huge smiles and looks of astonishment. The Lake Ashton contributions quickly filled up the stage area in the cafeteria. As the students arrived for the first day of school, they were given a backpack full of all the necessary supplies to help them have a successful year. Each teacher also received a $20 gift card to help with their classroom needs. If you have any free time and would like to volunteer at the school please contact them. The need is great for these students. Thank you again for the support, Carolyn Bishop, Lisa Fee & Lynn Lasseter Lake Ashton Community,, We are truly grateful for the generous contributions that have been made to support the students at Wahneta Elementary School. Due to the current situation with the pandemic the needs we are seeing have been extreme. The book bags, notebooks, binders, etc., were a pleasant surprise, The look on the students’ faces when they were presented with their school supplies was priceless. Thank you again for your support! Sincerely, Nildalis Caraballo, Principal Wahneta Elementary

well as the elevation. Training in Florida is 150-160 ft above sea level while some climbs on tour will reach elevations of 7-8,000 feet. Less oxygen in each breath makes the climbs more difficult. SPOTLIGHT: LAKE ASHTON CYCL I STS GO TOURING Two Lake Ashton bicycle riders will leave on cycling tours during the month of September. Calvin Eakins (above left) will be touring the state of Texas on a two-week, 850-mile adventure, while Bob LeMaster (above right) will be taking a 3,000+ mile adventure from San Diego, CA to St Augustine, FL. Average mileage on both trips will be approximately 70 miles per day. Both riders are preparing for this high daily mileage by logging between 50 and 70 miles five to six days a week. Calvin has been riding for ten years and brings a lot of experience to their efforts. According to Bob, Calvin knows all of the local roads and popular routes which has been a tremendous help. Bob is relatively new to cycling, having started riding when he moved to Lake Ashton two years ago. Calvin and Bob met when their paths crossed while cycling one morning and have been riding together since that chance encounter. One of the biggest challenges encountered during training this time of year is the heat. They start at 6 am most mornings so they can be finished before the temperature and humidity become too much. A 70-mile ride takes roughly five hours and it is very hot at the finish even with an early start. Both tours will have days of high temperatures, so adapting to the heat is a training goal. They must train like an endurance athlete to stay hydrated and have enough energy to finish the rides. Another challenge to training for long tours is the lack of mountains or long hills in Central Florida, as 13 13 Bob’s trip is hosted by a tour company, TransAmerica Cycling, that provides Support and Gear (SAG) during the trip and has taken care of all of the planning and logistics. The tour route leaves California September 27 and passes through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and will end in Florida on November 12. Calvin’s tour is hosted by the Texas Conference of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. It is called the “Determined Cycling Tour” and is a fundraiser to support K-12 Christian education. The tour starts September 12 at the southern tip of Texas in McAllen, passes through Corpus Christi, Houston, Austin, and finishes in Dallas September 24. You can follow the Determined Cycling Tour at texasadventist.org/determined/ for photos, videos, and interviews. Good luck to both of these determined Lake Ashton residents!

LA LOOKS LA ( LW) HOA CORNER By David Muller, VP Director Your Homeowners Association Board of Directors (BOD) continues to carry out the mandates of the CC&Rs the best it can with the help of the management company, Don Asher & Associates, Inc.

In September, Michellette will be concentrating on clean driveways for property violations. Please look at your property and ask yourself, “Would my property cut the mustard?” Don’t forget about the curbs.

These customers could be told that their account has been breached. The scammer will then instruct the victim to press 1, or any other number, to speak wi th customer support. Other things they might say is to call another number, or ask you to provide them with your personal information. Law Officials advise not to do anything. Hang up. Do not visit a web address either that the caller might give you. Report these types of scams to the Federal Trade Commission to report fraud! 16

GOLF UPD A TES FROM THE PRO SHOP By Ron LaVoie, General Manager SUMMER HOURS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30 Golf Pro Shop: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily Driving Range: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily (Select Thursdays range will be closed until 8 a.m. for maintenance) still playing the first four holes of the East. Last year those holes were closed starting August 10th and did not reopen until November 1, so let’s hope we can get through September and October with all 36 holes. Golf course maintenance is doing a good job with both courses as we try to control weeds and keep up with mowing while being down three people. The order of importance for maintenance is greens, fairways, tees, roughs and bunkers. We are currently putting together a five-year capital improvement program for the golf courses to include moving irrigation boxes, moving the main line out of the water on 3 East, replenishing bunkers, refurbishing rest rooms, new mowers, new irrigation heads in wet areas, drainage of wet areas, rebuilding and leveling tees. Of course, all of this must fit within the budgets so planning will be key to success. Membership sales are underway, and people are signing up at a faster rate then the previous nonCovid year fiscal year. The club is $144,374 ahead of 2019 – 2020! With all the new home sales it is going to be a very busy season this Fall and Winter. This past year the club sold 390 memberships which translated into 609 members. It is possible this number could rise to 650 once the build out is complete by late spring or early summer. So far, the rainy season has been good to us because we are Vickie and her people are making a great effort trying to service the food and beverage needs of the community while only having a staff of four people. Eagle’s Nest appreciates the patience everyone has shown as some days there is only one person available, and on shotgun days there are only two. This pandemic is far from over, but hopefully we will have more applicants after September 1st. The Golf Committee members are Rolly Geyer, Mary Lopez, Vickie Andrew, and Bill Bothwell. If you would like anything discussed at one of the meetings, please reach out to one of them, or let Matt or myself know what your concerns might be. Those non-golfers who would like to receive notifications on course conditions and closures should add your name to the email list by contacting the Pro Shop at 863-326-1032. 28

Or iginal ly f rom Michigan, Dawn is a retired 3rd grade teacher. She met her husband of 46 years, Ken, at a movie theater. They hit it off and were married. They have two daughters. Dawn loves riding motorcycles and rode a Honda 1300 wearing leather pants, a helmet, etc. She and Ken have ridden from Michigan to Mt. Rushmore and Michigan to Nova Scotia. She absolutely loves riding but sold her motorcycle when she moved to Florida — too afraid of the way the Floridians drove on the roads! Dawn was totally done with snow and upon moving to Florida she and Ken first rented for a year in Cypress Woods. They then drove in to Lake Ashton and in 2015 moved to Hogan Lane. They fell in love with the community. Dawn has been playing golf “forever” and first joined the golf association during the summer session to see if she liked it. She then joined the Niners and then recently the LALGA. She finds the ladies of the LALGA “fantastic!” You may hear Dawn up on the tee box.
