Recognizing that some are still having difficulty adjusting to the new website, the Communications Committee has decided to continue The Transition until January, 2018.  To assist those who are having trouble finding things on the website, we will be periodically posting short cut tips on the site in the NEWSLETTER section.  Currently, there are two such tips available, one explaining how to use the Calendar and the other the FAQ section.  You do not have to log in to access these helpful tips.  Just open the site, click on Newsletter and then scroll down.  If you have any difficulty, do not hesitate to email  We will be glad to help you with the website but cannot do so if we do not know the problems you are experiencing.

The ad hoc Pool Committee is moving along quickly and effectively in planning the replacement of the MAC pool.  Demolition will start the week of October 16th and should be completed by the end of October.  They are currently reviewing bids from several companies to build the new pool and the retaining  wall.  The renditions look great and should give us substantially more room and accommodate more people.  More information will be available at the Annual Meeting.

The existing shrubs and bushes inside the current site are available on a first come, first serve basis to any Sea Trail homeowner willing to do the work of removing and replanting them.  They must be removed no later than October 15th.  If you are interested, contact John Donaldson at 575 2270.

Have a great week
