Pink Pumpkin Woes!

Picked up our Pink Pumpkin fight cancer at the office.
*It made appearances at October's pub night,
 *it was in the office
*and at the Holloween Dance.
This year it was empty!
Over the past few years you all have given over $750.
  This last year we have lost many a dear one to CANCER and in our circle of friends we have several who are fighting with all they have to beat this menace.  Please help.
I will be collecting at Thanksgiving Dinner,
and at my lot 434 through the weekend.
 Checks can be made to
MD Anderson or The American Cancer Society.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Karen Hazlett 434

Bicycle ride November 21

We are anticipating fine weather for the bicycle ride tomorrow, November 21, at South Padre Island. 
Temperatures are forecast to be in the low 60's when we depart Sandpipers at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. 
On the Island, the high temperature will be around 80 with winds 10 to 15 MPH from the South.  That means a little headwind on our way to Isla Blanca County Park at the southern tip of South Padre Island.  It also means a friendly tailwind for our return to the Convention Center.  We will stop during the ride to eat lunch at Blackbeard's Restaurant.

We make a brief rest stop at the State Travel Center at the junction of US 83/I-2 and US 77/I-69E.  We normally arrive at the Convention Center between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m.  If traveling independently, we advise you to be very conscious of the speed limits along Hwy 100 to South Padre Island.  Strict adherence to the speed limit will save you money and time.

Our ride usually ends about 1:30 or 2:00 p.m. after our lunch. There are many attractions to see following the ride.  You are welcome to stay and enjoy South Padre Island and Port Isabel.  We return to Sandpipers independently.

Bicycle rides are led by Tom and Louise Butler, Lot 44.

This is a reminder for some, new info for others.
Sheryl (#11) has, for years, been collecting packaging materials and recycling them to Mailbox Depot.
  Many leave the materials on her porch or in her golf cart but those "not in the know" have been dumping into our already overburdened dumpster.
  Previosly she actually went dumpster diving but health issue (not to mention ewww!) have forced her to stop.
PULEEESE! Take a moment to deliver to #11 (porch, golf cart or just knock on the door) any:
1. Styrofoam
22. Bubble wrap
3. Air bags (those little bubble bags)
4. Bubble wrap envelopes
5. peanuts
6. most packing materials, but NOT boxes.
You will be not only recycling for the planet but also reducing the load on our dumpster.  Do you know how much it costs to have that monster emptied?
Plus saving Sheryl from diving headfirst into the dumpster to rescue packing materals.
The Earth thanks you, Sandpiper thanks you and Sheryl REALLY thanks you.
