OFFICE HOURS
Snug Harbor office hours are 9:00AM till 1:00PM Monday,

[email protected]
MASTER BOARD
Introducing a new face.
There is a new face at the window of the office. She is very
friendly and has a terrific smile. Her name is Deborah Dalton,
commonly called "Deb".
Deb is a resident of Barefoot Bay, a daughter, a mom and a
grandmother. She's had years of experience in large and small
offices. She is well versed in the Quick Books program that
our office uses to keep track of the community's money.
The Boards, all three, are happy to have her behind the desk,
and at the window. The Boards request that you stop and say
"Hi", when you come in. Also give her a little time to learn all
of your names, and where you live. We are certain that you
will come to look to her for the answers of all your questions.
A BIG Thank You!!!
It's not often that a community has a person that can step right
in and keep our business running without a lot of chaos. Snug
Harbor was really lucky when Lorraine Spinney stepped up and
volunteered to keep the office open and functioning, while we
searched for a new employee. But she did, and we THANK
YOU! All of us have special talents that we contribute to the
community. But for five weeks, Lorraine kept the lights on, the
phone answered, the questions from the realtors, and the
queries from our neighbors all taken care of in a professional
and friendly manner. When you see Lorraine, it might be nice
to let her know that we appreciate the job she stepped in to fill.
We couldn't have gone through this period without her help.
Again, many Thanks.
Pool Handrails
After many requests for a second hand rail at the pool, it's
installed. The pool water level was lowered for about a week
and the work was performed by G & J Pools. That was the
contractor that did all ofthe pool renovations. Hope this
demonstrates that the Master Board does listen to the requests
of the residents.
New Stove
Weare the grateful recipients of a second new stove for the
clubhouse kitchen. The Social Seniors purchased and donated
them for the benefit of all that use the kitchen for their
functions. This generous gift was made possible by all the
residents that volunteered and those that attended the events put
on by the Social Seniors. Again Thank You.
NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2014
MASTER BOARD
(cont.)
Emergency Management
Knock on wood; we have been very lucky with the weather so far
this year. There has been a LOT of rain, but no violent weather.
There is still more than a month left in the official hurricane
season, but we have had some really bad weather after that so,
don't let your guard down.
Events
The Snug Harbor community holds an event almost every month.
These are usually hosted by the Social Seniors or the Party
Planers. We also have monthly functions like a coffee social put
on by the Friendship Group on the first Saturday of the month
and a breakfast on the third Saturday ofthe month put on by the
men of the Social Seniors. It is wonderful to see so many familiar
faces at these events and it would be even better if they were
joined by their new neighbors. So wouldn't it be nice to invite the
new people on your street to an event and introduce them to the
wonderful people that live in Snug Harbor.
Water Exercise.
There is a Zumba class being held at the pool every Tuesday,
Thursday, and Saturday at lOAM. There are about 20 people
attending these classes, yes there is an instructor, no there is no
commitment, you come when you can. Once you come and see
how much fun it is you probably won't want to miss any
sessions. If you don't want to get in the water you can still
participate on the pool deck.
Safety Item
If you notice any problems at any of the facilities in Snug
Harbor that may constitute a safety hazard please report them to
the office.
We will make every effort to correct them as quickly as possible
Guest Registration Form
Residents are reminded to register any guests staying more than
three days or that will be using the facilities. There is a new guest
registration form that clearly states which tags shall be issued.
The forms can be picked up at the office during regular business
hours. There is a $5.00 deposit that you get back when the
pass is returned in a timely manner.

CONDO BOARD
Swales and Drainage
There appears to be some confusion regarding the swale
areas in the community. RESIDENTS in Snug Harbor Lakes
Condominium Association are responsible for the care of
their easements; however, the swale areas cannot be changed
in any way that may affect the flow of storm water run-off.
Residents cannot lay sod, stones or plant anything within the
swale area that will affect the flow of the storm water. Swale
areas that have been altered or removed will cause drainage
problems. Unit owners who have altered their swale areas
have the responsibility to restore their swales to the original
terrain to ensure proper drainage to the retention ponds.
Pursuant to our Declaration of Documents, Chapter 7.2.6:
Non-Interference with Easements. No structure, planting, or
other material shall be placed or permitted to remain on a
mobile home unit which may damage or interfere with the
installation and maintenance of utilities or drainage facilities
located within the condominium.
Chapter 7.2.12: Drainage. No change in elevation of any
mobile home unit shall be made which will cause undue
hardship to adjoining property with respect to natural runoff
of rainwater. Any change in elevation of a mobile home unit
shall be approved by the ARC.
There is also the misconception of some unit owners who
believe the condominium is responsible for their driveways
that accumulate water after a storm. We all purchased and
own our lots here in Snug Harbor. The property owned
includes our driveways. Inverted driveways will always have
standing water after a storm. It is the responsibility of the
homeowner to care for his/ber own driveway.
BREVARD OUTLAWS SUMMER FERTILIZERS
Brevard County commissioners have approved a ban on
fertilizer use from June first to September 30. The measure is
an effort to slow down the pollution of the Indian River
Lagoon. In many recent newspaper articles there have been
numerous stories about sick and dying dolphins and
manatees, as well as algae blooms and the loss of sea grasses.
Please do your part and adhere to the ordinance. Also do not
use fertilizer containing phosphorus without first testing the
soil to see if it is needed.
Those of you living on the lakes keep fertilizer at least 15
feet from the water's edge.
New Residents
The Condo Board had a busy summer, interviewing about 14
new residents who have since moved into their Florida
Paradise homes. It has been a quiet summer.
NEWSLETTER
OCTOBER
CONDO BOARD (cont.)
Condo Dues are $39.00 per month
We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone
that the Association Dues are $39.00 per month this year.
Your dues are due the first of every month. In order to keep
our costs down, we would appreciate your timely payments.
At the March Condo meeting it was decided that fines would
be instituted for those residents that were late with their
assessment payments.
ARC
The ARC had a busy summer. Many of the applications
submitted requiring ARC approval came from new residents
of Snug Harbor. With many residents returning we expect
more in the next several months. All applications that are
submitted to the Snug Harbor Office by Tuesday at noon
will be on our Thursday Agenda.
Recently it has come to our attention that a number of Pole
Lights are out. It is the responsibility of every unit owner
that Pole Lights must be on from dusk to dawn. This is the
only lighting we have to illuminate our roadways. For those
residents that do not go outside after dark, a peak out a front
window will let you know that your pole light is ont. If you
have trouble replacing a bulb, perhaps a neighbor or family
member could replace it for you.
Parking of boats, trailers and motor homes in your driveway
or in the street at your home for more than twelve (12) hours
per day is prohibited.
Any alterations or additions (decks etc.) need ARC approval
BEFORE work commences.
Watering of lawns.
Homes with odd numbered addresses are restricted to Wed
& Sat
Homes with even numbered addresses are restricted to Thurs
&Sun
Water only when needed - no watering between 10:00 a.m.
and 4:00 p.m.
The restrictions apply to water from public utilities as well
as private wells.
Restrictions are in place from March until the 1st Sunday in
November.
2015 Elections
The first mailing for the 2015 Condominium elections will
be mailed to you soon. This first mailing solicits candidates
for the Condo Board, ARC, and representatives for the
Master Board. If you want to get involved in the
community'S future, this is the place to be. There will
probably be several vacancies, so you won't be stepping on
people's toes by submitting you name for nomination. I
would suggest that you read your documents and see what is
required of our Board members.

GENERAL INFORMATION
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
Friendship Committee News
A coffee social is held at the Clubhouse the first Saturday of
each month. It starts at 9 AM. Please come join us and meet
your neighbors.
Just a reminder. When you are cleaning out your pantry,
check the due dates on your non-perishable items. If the
dates are getting close, drop them off in the boxes that are
located in the Clubhouse lobby. The local food pantry will
appreciate it.
The social activities that are available in the community are
many and varied. We will add this section of the Newsletter
to help spread the word about these groups and their
offerings. None of these groups have a formal structure as
we do not have a social director, as some of the other larger
communities have. If anything interests you, please contact
someone involved in that activity to participate. Some ofthe
groups are;
Social seniors
Monthly Breakfasts - the Snug Harbor men have had a
very successful season of breakfasts for the residents on the
third Saturday of each month. The breakfasts will
continue on October 18 and November 15. They will go on
vacation for December, January, and February, and will start
again on March 21. Breakfast includes scrambled eggs,
bacon or sausage, pancakes, orange juice and coffee for a
mere $4.00. Tickets are sold at the door; a maximum of 110
tickets will be available. The guys, under the direction of
Bill Spinney, have done a great job of cooking and
providing sociability for the residents. Their goal of
purchasing a second stove for the kitchen has been realized;
they will now start raising funds for further enhancements in
the kitchen. THANK YOU GUYS!!!
"Men who would like to participate and join the "chefs" in
the kitchen, just call Bill Spinney at 663-1677."

Party Planners
Diane and Ken Austin hosted the 4th of July picnic by the
pool. There was about 30 residents in attendance. The
charcoal grill was fired up for anyone wishing to cook their
burgers, steaks and hot dogs. Other dishes and drinks were
shared with each other. The weather was warm but we had
an ocean breeze making the day very pleasant and
enjoyable. Thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this
day perfect.
If you have not visited it, you will be surprised at
the information that it contains. If you think some
other information needs to be added, contact a
Masterboard member, and they will discuss it.
Articles
I (the editor) am looking for articles promoting our
social activities. If someone in an activity (euchre,
Bocci, shuffleboard etc.) would be interested in
promoting that activity, I would be glad to help get your
attendance and participation up. Send your article to
[email protected], and I will edit it for grammar and
then publish it. If you want to get more players, this
may help.

The newsletter now goes out electronically. Beginning

website snugharbormasterassociation.com.
We will no
longer deliver the newsletter to each household.
