There was no Monday Morning Coffee & Donuts this morning. In response to the Governor of the State of Florida the Resident Owned Community (ROC) and the Home Owners Association (HOA) for Highlands Estates have decided to close the clubhouse and cancel all group gatherings through March 28. The situation will be further assessed at that time. This included the appreciation dinner for last Saturday, the Wednesday afternoon Jam Sessions and all scheduled activities. All reporting for the newsletter will be by correspondence. Please send any information you may have to Bob Mellinger at Mellingerr@aol.com.

Lynette Pickup shared the birthday wishes this week for Dick Asmussen, Bill Gardner, Pat Brevoort, Cynde Kochensparger, Pat Moody, Don Madden, Jerry Epson, Joe Cole and Laura Imboden. There is one anniversary this week celebrated by Mike & Tami Gerity.

Carol Parker shared the Sunshine Report noting that Bob Hazelett has a persistent cough. She has not been notified of anyone else being ill but, as always please keep everyone in our prayers.

Martha Watson submitted the gamming report for some of the activities last week. Claude Funk won the hotball at Bingo for $44; JoAnn Schultz won pinochle; Judy Fahl also won euchre; and Bob Mellinger & Jim Munds won horseshoes on Monday with Johnnie Baldwin winning on Saturday. There will not be any further gaming reports until activities resume.

We are still seeking someone to take over the newsletter for the summer months, May – October, while I go home for the summer. Please let me know, Thank you!
