The other day I had the privilege of having coffee with a group of men from the Bentley Green subdivision in Tuscawilla. These friends gather for coffee and donuts each Monday morning at the Donut Patch on Aloma for good conversation and fellowship. I was made to feel very welcome, and I enjoyed learning more about their community. Some of the men in the group were leaders in their HOA. One of my goals is to learn more about each of the twenty-four plus communities that make up Tuscawilla. Please invite me to one of your gatherings. By the way, the donuts and coffee are very good at the Donut Patch. It took several napkins to clean off all the chocolate on my fingers and face from eating my Boston Cream!
Last month, we had several views on our Tuscawilla website. The information I share in this report is over a month old by the time you read it. However, the information on the website is updated often. Sometimes there are things that we feel you need to know now. For example, there might be a new vaccine site, or the city might be doing some work in the area. We are working to keep our site up to date. It is also the place where you can sign up for events such as the Wine Night Social.
The Wine Night event is on Monday, November 1st, at Dominick’s Restaurant. As we did two years ago, there will be a wine dealer exhibiting different wines for you to try, and there will be appetizers. Not only is this a social event, but it is also a fundraiser for the local charity Kids House. The cost will be $20 per person, and you can make reservations online through our website at www.tuscawilla.org. We can only accommodate approximately one hundred guests, and we strongly encouraged that each one of you be vaccinated. We held this event two years ago, and it was a great success.
In the Arts section of the Orlando Sentinel on Sunday, August 15th, there was a lengthy article on the Bear Creek Nature Trail. Quoting the article, “Tucked just away from the bustle of suburban life, Bear Creek Nature Trail in Winter Springs provides a short but sweet walk in the woods.” As you know the trail is located right in the middle of Tuscawilla. If you haven’t been on the trail recently, have some fun identifying the local flora and fauna.
Tuscawilla Editor, Elaine Johnson, featured the trail in the September issue of our magazine.
Halloween is around the corner, and then come the Holidays. Special events in the city will be listed in other parts of the magazine and on the website. I hope this year will be almost a return to the normal. Where I live in Chelsea Woods, there is an annual costume parade on Seneca Blvd starting at 4 pm in the afternoon on Halloween. It has been a great tradition for many years and so much fun seeing children and adults alike in their clever costumes marching down the street. Enjoy your holiday!
Congratulations to State Representative David Smith who was recently honored by the Florida Juvenile Justice Association as Legislator of the Year. As you know David Smith is a resident of Tuscawilla.
