ROTONDA WEST, Fla. – More than 100 residents who attended Tuesday night’s Rotonda West Association Spring Community Open House were offered a diverse mixture of the community’s history – past, present and future.
The 18th community-wide event in the series drew 107 residents, new and not-so-new. They observed the mission and activities of a dozen RWA committees as representatives stood by, aided by informative displays.
Community service and social clubs were also on hand to explain their programs. The GFWC Woman’s Club gained 20 new members and distributed an equal number of “Welcome to Rotonda West” books. The Fiesta Association, the community’s premier social club, added 11 couples, while Neighborhood Watch gained 5 patrols. Other exhibitors also added to their ranks.
A historical table featured the popular book, “Rotonda; The Vision and the Reality” and DVDs of a video produced last summer commemorating the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Association. Sales were brisk.
Another highlight was the unveiling of the floor plan of the new community meeting building that will be constructed adjacent to the RWA’s new administrative offices in Broadmoor Park.
Organizations that have served residents in the community since the 1970s are Neighborhood Watch, the Woman’s Club, Fiesta Association and the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Several area churches and service organizations also participated.
Chairman of the Open House Committee was Earl Haas, assisted by Linda Bondeson, Susan Superak, Ginni Mahon, Johnnie Haas and Sue Killion.
The next Community Open House is scheduled for November. The event is the responsibility of the RWA Community Relations Committee.
