The September 2020 NEWS is HOT off the PRESS!

In this issue…

We tip our hat in appreciation to longtime community leader, Sam Sudman; sail across the Pacific with some SCC friends; catch up with those industrious Model Railroaders; get a taste of the good food at CC’s Grill; relive a fun Block Party, and get breaking news about SCC’s Long Range Plan. From there, we “go green” with the Tillers & Toilers, head out for some Trail Blazing, meet an interesting neighbor, catch up with cute baby sea turtles at Mote Marine, and learn how the Hope Fund has been affected by COVID-19.

Then, we “get off the couch” for some horseshoes, learn about community informational webinars hosted by the SCC Men’s Club, hang out at the Firehouse, spend a good morning in the “Great Outdoors,” escape to Myakka Park, and get some delicious seafood at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar.

The community comes together to celebrate our healthcare heroes, and we catch up with the Pelican Players. We review updates to the COVID-19 guidelines, show you where to get tested, fill you in on new procedures for the re-opened SCC Library, and get back in the swing of things with SCC Softball.

We celebrate community members who really went the extra mile for their neighbors, shine a spotlight on a couple who has dedicated decades of exemplary service to this community, welcome a new CA board member, and tip our hat to another who is stepping away. We also take a moment to enjoy some “doggone good” happenings in Kings Point and celebrate with some happy couples who are marking major milestones in the midst of the pandemic. Then we get to know a remarkable local athlete, and delve into the life of an extraordinary woman with a review of “Florence Adler Swims Forever.”

Enjoy these stories, and be sure to read the Bulletin and Community News sections to help you plan your month.
