Wanted Holiday Decorations Committee Chairman
For 22 consecutive years, the Rotonda West community has kicked off the Christmas holiday season with a traditional lighting ceremony at the Oakland Hills Marina. Volunteers decorate the marina island and gazebo, as well as the five entrances and memorial parks. There is a need for a committee chairman. The chairman has overall responsibility for the project and the benefit of about a dozen volunteers to help with the planning, selection, placement and storage of the decorations that are used from year to year. For more information, please call Earl Haas, (941) 698-9207.

Rotonda West Neighborhood Watch continues to get great reviews and support from the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office. Recently Sheriff Bill Prummell stated that the Watch "is doing a bang-up job as the eyes and ears of the Sheriff's Office". The Sheriff has stated in the past that our Watch is "absolutely the best in Charlotte County and a model of what a Watch should be."
This year, the Watch will mark 45 years of providing a valuable community service to deter crime in all of our neighborhoods. We owe this great accomplishment to our many dozens of faithful volunteers, many of whom have served for more than a decade.
A continuing goal in 2016 is to expand our membership. All we ask is that our volunteers devote two hours each month to patrol our streets, or to serve as base station volunteers. If you are a part-time resident, we encourage your service while you are here, as well as full-time residents.
Every volunteer receives training, a copy of our monthly newsletter, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are giving back to your community. Another advantage is that you can become more connected with individuals that are active in the Rotonda West Association.
If you are interested in learning more, please call President Alan Deckebach at (941) 698-0085, or Ron Quinn, Vice President-Administration, at (941) 697-4426. You can also get up-to-date information at our web site: www.rotondawestneighborhoodwatch.com
Rotonda West Neighborhood Watch meets at 3 PM on the third Thursday of each month at the Community Center. All are welcome.
