Sanibel Island, ah yes..... we all know it well. And it looks like the world is catching on. Most of you have probably heard about Sanibel's ranking as the top travel destination by Arthur Frommer, now the NY Times is filling everyone in on our great shelling down here. So awesome to live in a place that everyone loves so much!!!
While the storm made headlines across the country, it did little to disturb our little island. And Periwinkle Park made it through without any problems. Here's the view headed over to Sanibel this afternoon.
And an added bonus for our holiday visitors.... many more shells to sift through!
To all our campers and residents, We are pleased to announce that we are now able to again accept Canadian checks from Canadian banks. The checks must be in US funds or we can not accept them. We went to our bank and discussed how inconvenient this was for our Canadian visitors. As a result they figured out on their end how to help us make this work. We hope that this helps make your visit a little less stressful and will encourage more Canadian tourists to visit.
Thank you for your continued support. David Muench
My Daughter Madelyn Muench had an assignment for world geography to build a land mark in London. She picked the London Tower Bridge. This is what it looked like finished. I would like to thank Jerry Edelman and Maryann Daly for the clay they supplied us with and also Pat and John Guyette for the many ideas they gave me to give to her. There was also a lengthy report due with this project and her dad and I are so proud of her for starting on this the day it was assigned. It took 3 weeks to finish.
Hello to All! Tomorrow is the BIG day! Please join all your fellow Park residents and campers for a fun filled day!! The Parade is always entertaining and the luncheon is always fantastic with entertainment to follow. See you ALL there~~~ Dick, Jerry, David and families

The Sanibel Fire Department on Palm Ridge or Dan and Judy Davis on Lot #144 on 8E will be glad to accept any equipment you may discover that's not being used.
Parrots 101 - We have had a cold spell & the parrots were indoors from Monday through Wednesday. Sami as always was wonderful in helping to give them time outside on Wednesday & putting them back in for Wednesday night. Thursday we put them outside & cleaned all 20 cages. Claire was a great help as well. G.W. from Jerry's was a terrific bird letting me trim his toenails & clip his wings. Caesar from Jerry's was, as usual, a menace & extremely noisy. Miss Libby will be away on a cruise from January 7-17 so drop by & say hello to the parrots as there will be no show for 10 days.
On Tuesday 1-3-12 between 9am and 11am the water will be shut off on streets 5E, 6E & 6W. There is a water leak in this area and the maintenance staff will need to manipulate the valves to see where the problem is located. We ask that you please limit your water usage during these hours it would be much appreciated. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
This year's Mardi Gras is not being cancelled by the Park. The parade was always organized by the Park residents and the Park provided the picnic. In past years a committee was formed to work out all the parade details. A new committee will need to be formed and a chairperson or Co-Chairs will need to contact me to arrange for this event.
We intend to have the picnic on Fat Tuesday, February 21, 2012 even if a parade is not happening this year. Looking forward to meeting with the new committee as soon as possible.
------------------------------------------- Here's a link to the SCCF native plant nursery price list ~ great prices! SCCF is a great resource with many volunteers ready to assist residnets in native plants please also note that Sanibel City Hall is all native plants and they are all marked so you can walk around and see in person.
It is very important to use native plants for landscaping. These plants do very well in our climate and require very little to no watering!
