Hi everyone,Our article deadline is the 20 of each month for the next issue of our Ariana Village News. I write thatbecause changes do happen in the 11 days until publication. One thing that will not change is oursummer weather. It’s always sunny and 74’ when you wake up. By 10 am it is about 85’ and the cloudsbegin to build. By 1 pm it is 90’ or more and the humidity is high and the sun very hot. The rest of theday may stay that way or, usually, a thunder storm comes thru the area. We’ve had two months of 10” ofrain each this summer.The pool gets quite a bit of use and air-conditioners hum all day. What made me think of this? A winterresident has visited us for the first time in the summer and saw the lush green lawns, flowering trees andshrubs, etc. She noted that it is a different world than in January.If you have friends who would like to buy a home, now is a good time. We have about 20 for sale rightnow. Contact our manager for details. 863-687-3835Our summer activities have hit a snag since we have not been able to cook in the clubhouse kitchen. Ourmanager has kept us up to date as to how Sun Communities is going to meet the fire marshal’srequirements. As I understand it; we will have some kitchen electrical work updated so that we can grillon electric appliances. That is the temporary fix. Then the first of 2018 the budget will include money fora commercial kitchen upgrade. Our grill has been removed and will be converted to propane to be usedon the porch area of the clubhouse. For those who are new or missed the news last month, the LakelandFire Marshal made an inspection in June and noticed we did not have a fire suppression system in ourkitchen. Being a ‘public’ kitchen we must be rated commercial and that requires a system to shut off thegas and suppress any fire. That was not done when the kitchen was renovated back in 2014.In other Lakeland news, the Lakeland Center is now renamed for an investment company who paid a lotof money to put their name on the building. It is now called the RP FUNDING CENTER. With thatname change is a 14.7 million dollar up-grade to the buildings, including hi-tech video scoreboards andthe Orlando Magic NBA team will have their minor league team playing here this winter. More andbetter entertainment is the promise.The newspaper also announced that Florida Hospital (they have branch hospitals all over Florida) isgoing to build a clinic and 200 bed hospital about a mile from the new Polytechnic College in northeastLakeland.As I ride my bike around the area I’ve noticed a lot of commercial building is taking place. Distributionand warehouse centers are the most common. West and East of the city is where most of the building istaking place.Have a great month. Be thinking about joining the HOA and getting involved in making our communitythe best it can be for all of us.thKen Garnsey, HOA President

A Smile Never AgesThe older you get the less you know.Just ask your kids they will say its so.Blood pressure up. Arches flat.Everything you eat just goes to fat.Get out of bed. Move real slow.Three times a night you have to go.Caffeine not only keeps you awake it makes you pee for heaven’s sake.The world keeps changingat a hectic pacecausing more gray hairand a wrinkled face.But as you look in the mirror what catches your eye is your smile never agesas the years go by.
