What a month our community has experienced. We had a tropical storm come in August, then Hurricane Irma in September. Hopefully everyone fared well, and we are done with these terrible storms that are causing such havoc to our wonderful state. This was the first Hurricane that I was involved in since I have been here. Michael and I prepared as best as we could and got the clubhouse and pools opened as soon as we could. I think we have learned a lot about how to prepare for any other major storm and will include this in our Hurricane prep for seasons to come. 

I want to take a moment to thank your friends and neighbors who posted updates on our Facebook page. I think this was the best means of communication and those who posted put many minds at ease. Thank you for being such a strong loving community, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Cinnamon Cove has got to be the best community in Florida! Thank you to our reporters; Janet Carloni, Arminie Marinelli, John Marinelli and all other reporters out there. If you have not become a member of our Facebook Page and would like to, search Cinnamon Cove Clubhouse in the Facebook search bar and ask to join. Tony and I will approve you, and you to can get all the happenings first hand.

Our New Aquatic Program has started. With the expertise of our favorite Water Zumba instructor, we have put together a new program for Aquatics. You will now enjoy the freedom to join or not join a class with a punch card for all Aquatic Classes. You will purchase a punch card in the office for $30, $40 or $50.00. You now have the freedom to decide which classes you want to go to that day and get a punch or two for the class. Punch cards do not expire, and if you have a guest, you can punch your card for them! Look more information under Events.
