    PubliSherS letter:Dear Gand Hampton residents, You may have noticed that your newsletter came a little early this time. Normally you would receive the next newsletter on November 15th. However, now Grand Hampton News will be monthly. There is a lot of information to share and the governing entities and clubhouse manager requested that we produce the newsletter monthly, instead of every other month. This change gives you the opportunity to share more of your stories, pictures, events, happens, etc., and keeps you more up to date. November is normally associated with Thanksgiving and I would like to include a little something on the subject. I try to be thankful every day (not just the month of November) for the things I already have, the abilities I have, the small things and the big things. Even when I almost locked my keys in the car but caught the door at the last second, I am very thankful. :) Here is something I found on the internet that may give you pause and remember to be thankful every day.Each of us nurture secret dreams and aspirations. The "what if", the "when everything else settles down", the "when the kids get older", the "when I have the money". And these dreams are good. They give us hope, energy, a place to escape, the power to visualize something other than our current choices. Our secret dreams sustain us and enrich our lives. For a while.

    Secret dreams and aspirations have a lifespan of their own. Over time, and without warning, the lack of action, the failure to take one step in their direction, the loss of faith to make them real, secret dreams and aspirations slip into missed opportunities, or even worse, embarrassment and regret. A dream becomes regret is a heavy chain binding the spirit, always waiting at the edge of consciousness to wrap another length of chain around the heart. Nothing in your life is beyond redemption. Not even regrets. And certainly not dreams. Have you let them out lately? Written them down or told a friend or love? Giving voice to those dreams is a first step. Let them out, let them roam. The confidence to express your dreams is a step toward making them real. Scary? You bet. Worth it? Absolutely. Need a way to recapture a dream, before regret? Be thankful for it. Be thankful that you had the ability to imagine, to hope and to feel it in the first place. Reach back and find - it's still in there - the joy it brought you. Dust it off, roll it around in your mind a while, let it out, and visualize what could be, if you only take the chance.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi everyone! The calendar for fall is really filling up fast! Make sure to check out all of the fun events we have planned for the residents as well as all of the Clubs and outings on our website: www.egrandhampton.com and on our Face Book page at GrandHamptonTampa. If you cant access our new website, please email your address, phone number, names of adult members of your household, and email address you would like used and I will get you signed up. Also, if you are not yet receiving weekly emails from the Lifestyle office, please drop me an email with your first and last name and email address and I will add you to the contact list. These two items are separate so if you have access to one, you dont automatically get the other. We have many new clubs and activity groups started such as the walking club, womens club, networking group and craft club. Grand Hampton is also enjoying a large playgroup on Wednesday mornings for the under three residents and their parents. Keep an eye out on the property and the aerobics room for our new exercise program run by the awesome exercise instructor Shandra Valenzuela and the Lifestyle office. Make sure to cheer on your neighbors if you see them working hard by the clubhouse or better yet, come join your neighbors on the road to health and well-being. Most community and club events require an RSVP in order to have the proper amount of food and supplies on hand at events. Please be certain to email all RSVPs with your name and number of guests. I look forward to seeing everyone at all of the Holiday events. Please look out for the kids in the mornings and afternoons as they go to and from school.

    COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT (CDD)

    WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW A CDD is a governmental unit created to serve the long-term specific needs of its community. Created pursuant to Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes, a CDDs main powers are to plan, finance, construct, operate, and maintain community-wide infrastructure and services specifically to benefit its residents. A CDD is governed by its Board of Supervisors which is elected initially by the landowners, then begins transitioning to residents of the CDD. Like all municipal, county, state, and national elections the Office of the Supervisor of Elections oversees the vote, and CDD Supervisors are subject to state ethics and financial disclosure laws. CDD business is conducted in the Sunshine, which means all meetings and records are open to the public. Public hearings are held on CDD assessments, and CDD budgets are subject to annual independent audits. The cost to operate a CDD is borne by those who benefit from its services. Property owners in the CDD are subject to a non-ad valorem assessment, which appears on their annual property tax bill from the county tax collector and may consist of two parts: an annual assessment for operations and maintenance, and an annual capital assessment to repay bonds sold by the CDD to finance community infrastructure and facilities. The Grand Hampton CDD primary area of common responsibility is wetlands, water management and drainage and oversight of Conservation Areas. The CDD is professionally managed by Rizzetta & Company and inquiries should be directed to Greg Cox at (813) 933 -5571. Residents are cautioned to not feed or otherwise entice alligators; this illegal practice can encourage their dependence, create a danger to humans and pets, and threaten their survival. Conservation areas cannot be encroached upon to extend lawns or views! Please contact the CDD with any questions on protected conservation areas.

    Against Destructive Decisions) and AT&T to develop a Dont Text and Drive Program a program that would enhance Whartons current drivers education curriculum and truly impact the decisions our students and families make in the New Tampa community. Fast forward to September 19th... a national day proclaiming It Can Wait No Texting While Driving. Wharton PTSA partnered with AT&T specifically to hold an It Can Wait campaign to encourage the entire Wharton community to take the pledge to never text and drive.Amal and Marcia Forbes, PTSA Health & Safety chairs emphasized the programs goal was to save lives the lives of not only past, present and future students but also the lives of those who visit our Wharton campus and website.

    Statistics are alarming. According to the National Safety Council, more than 100,000 automobile crashes occur and individuals are injured or die because the driver was texting and driving. AT&Ts Teen Driver Survey finds that 77% of teens have seen their friends and yes, their parents text and drive. Furthermore, 97% of teens will state that texting while driving is very dangerous, yet 43% still text and drive. The Technology Lab was the epicenter of the programs activities which ran throughout the day. At the start of each period, Stephanie Smith, AT&T/FL Director of Public Affairs spoke from the heart as she zeroed in on the programs purpose: No text is worth causing an accident It Can Wait. Over 120 students were given the opportunity to view an AT&T 10 minute documentary depicting real individuals and families affected both emotionally and physically by the tragedies of texting while driving. The reaction to the documentary was immediate. A normally interactive and very talkative student group sat motionless

    with teary eyes as silence consumed the entire classroom. Surprisingly, questions asked by Elizabeth Bolstridge, Whartons Technology Instructor, went unanswered despite

    students that are normally very vocal in expressing themselves. Afterwards, each student was allowed to practice individually or in groups driving the AT&T online computer auto simulator. With the simulator, students experienced firsthand how accidents happen in a split second when they are distracted by texting. Each student was then given the opportunity to take the pledge online as well as sign their name to the No Texting & Driving poster. PTSA volunteers were also busy getting the attention of hundreds of hungry students during three lunch periods. In the Wharton Cafeteria, students could view the AT&T documentary as well as receive stickers and handouts on the dangers of distracted driving. In big bold letters, all banners read It Can Wait and I Pledge Not to Text and Drive. Principal Bradley Woods was one of the first to sign the banner. Throughout each lunch period, Wharton faculty, coaches, assistant principals, guidance counselors and administrators stopped by to sign the pledge. Over 1800 students signed the pledge with all banners now prominently displayed in Whartons cafeteria and media center. The day ended with reflections on how outstanding our Wharton Wildcat students are: one

    Whartons Principal, Bradley Woods signs the It Can Wait banner.

    community comprised of truly talented, diverse, and intelligent kids. We are extremely proud that a crucial message was delivered, knowing there is still more work to be done. The day before the 19th, PTSA volunteers decorated the school with It Can Wait-Dont Text and Drive/Distracted Driver banners and permanent metallic parking lot signs. Whartons school marquee will continue to flash reminders that the decisions we make while behind the steering wheel can be life changing.Important Final reflection: Every 9 minutes someone in the United States is severely injured or dies from the decisions others make to be distracted while driving. The best way to help fight distracted driving is to get educated and it starts with taking the pledge.

    After years of planning, the final details are coming together at this new full-service hospital scheduled to open October 1st. Part of the Adventist Health System, Florida Hospital is a leading health network comprised of 22 hospitals throughout the state. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is a not-for-profit 83 bed facility which features specialty design, expert staff and state of the art technology built for better patient care.

    Services include an emergency de-partment with helipad, cardiac care, vascular surgery, orthopedics and sports medicine, womens services and gynecology, obstetrics and a free-standing Health and Wellness Center which will open in early 2013.

    Every decision in the design of this hos-pital was made to provide an environ-ment for high quality health care and healing, said Brian Adams, president and CEO of Florida Hospital Wesley

    Chapel. Weve also designed all of our processes using best practices in health care from across the country. From faster ER bedside check-ins and 24 hour visitor access, to all private rooms with views of nature and even healing gar-dens- all to provide a more comfortable patient experience.

    There are many techno-logical firsts that will be available only at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel:

    First in the region digi-tal 128-Slice CT imaging for faster testing, diagno-sis and treatment.

    Only the second 3T MRI in the region, but the only one with Philips Ambient Experience technology, which reduces patient stress and promotes healing by creat-ing a soothing environment through sounds, lighting and animations.

    First hybrid operating suite of its kind in the region, and only the

    second in the United States offering a flexible, more effective environment for surgeons. This transforms the OR from a standard operating room to a minimally invasive imaging suite.

    A nationally recognized electronic medical records system, which brings medical information to the doc-tors fingertips and thus decreases the possibility of errors.

    GetWellNetwork which provides patients in-room, interactive technol-ogy that allows them to research, and follow their own treatments and

    recovery through videos and other media. It also allows patients to stay in touch with family, friends and co-workers.

    Real time location services track hospital staff throughout the hospital and allows patients to see the names and photographs of each

    staff member as he or she enters their room.

    Spacious, private rooms with natural lighting, hallway lights along the edge of the walls to reduce stress, and window blinds located between panes of glass to reduce infection and disturbances to the patients.

    Flavors 450 Cafe which empha-sizes whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat dairy products as well as fresh seasonal ingredients with di-verse recipes from New York Times best-selling author, Chef Cary Neff.

    This intentional design of building, combined with the medical expertise and compassionate approach to care, creates a better patient experience. It also allows for more efficient operations, better outcomes and a better healing environment. These details make Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel better by design and a valuable asset to the Seven Oaks community. v

    Better by Design Florida Hospital Wesley ChapelBy Ann MacKinnonNatural lighting and other design details improve patient comfort and healing.

    New Tampa Evening

    Rotary Club At Work

    On Saturday morning September 15th New Tampa Evening Rotary Club members and other volunteers started to arrive at St. Mark the Evangelist Church to help with distributing food in partnership with Feeding America. Pallets of donated food included dry goods, meat and fresh vegetables. Tents were erected and boxes went through an assembly line. Each box was packed with a variety of products as it progressed to the end of the line. Rotarian Pat Rogers, a director at Feeding America, was on hand to direct the operation and give instruction to the volunteers. The Rotary Club of New Tampa Evening

    not only provided volunteers, they donated $1500 to make this distribution possible. In addition to our Rotary club there were volunteers from other organizations. Shortly after the first boxes were filled cars started to line up to collect the food. As the temperature rose, the pace of the cars increased as well. Volunteers frantically continued to pack the boxes to keep up with the demand. Tricia Till handled half gallons of juice while Peter Vaka and Ram Kancharla put produce, crackers and cookies into each box. Our exchange student Katharina Lorenz kept the line moving with empty boxes to be filled. Lloyd Johnson, Sharon Gates and Eileen Johnson never stopped. Past President Sherri Ferguson helped with the setup and breakdown as well as packing boxes into families cars. Feeding Americas mission is Ending Hunger Nourishing Hope. Feeding America is the largest domestic hunger relief organization in

    the country, consisting of a network of more than 200 food banks. They have the ability to leverage food donor relationships and effectively transport food to feed hungry Americans. Across the country one in six people struggles with hunger. Of the 50 million people who are unsure where their next meal will come from, Feeding America Tampa Bay provides food to

    over 400,000 people in the West Central Florida. Feeding America Tampa Bay makes a difference in the lives of thousands of people weekly through its distribution to a partnership network of more than 600 churches and other incorporated non-profit organizations. These hunger relief agencies include The Salvation Army, Metropolitan Ministries, Beth-el Mission, Hope Childrens Home and the St. Vincent DePaul Society. The Food Bank services 10 counties throughout west central Florida. New Tampa Evening Rotary Club was thrilled to partner with Feeding America and was able to distribute to over 200 individuals and 50 families. The New Tampa Evening Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 6:15 pm at Hunters Green Country Club. We hope you will visit us for fun and fellowship and to find out how rewarding being a Rotarian can be. v
