Presidents Report By Mike Hessney Dear Members, I would like to thank Jorge, his staff and our board members for all the hard work they do on a consistent daily basis. Our property looks great and it’s wonderful to see so many of our members using our community center. Many of our families and snow bird friends are enjoying our pool area.We are currently in the process of our pool renovation. The jacuzzi is now up & running and being enjoyed by many. The little pool is currently being worked on and once that is complete, we will start on the large pool. Jorge has done a nice job to ensure we will have at least one pool open at all times. The BTTC hosted 75 events in 2022 which provided $255,000 net income.January, 2023 we hosted 9 events which generated $34,000 in income. Marivette our Events Coordinator is doing a great job, thank you. Our beautiful community center offers 2 indoor pickleball courts and now 2 outdoor courts. It is awesome to see our members exercising, meeting new friends and it has become a social event for many. April is now an estimated target date to open our salon and spa. We currently have all 3 massage & facial rooms rented. We have openings for a barber, hair stylist & nail technicians. I again would personally like to thank Jorge & his staff for the hard work, they are all doing a great job! We as a team will continue to do our best to represent our entire community. I invite you to our Town Center, so you can personally witness the improvements, attend our meetings, and always stay informed. Wishing our Members, health & happiness. Sincerely, Mike Hessney, President
A message from City of Weston Commisioner, Mary Molina - Macfie KEEPING CURRENT WITH THE CODES Commissioner Mary Molina-Macfie Ensure Properties are Properly Maintained Those of us who live in Weston do so for many reasons, one of which is the beauty that surrounds us and Weston’s amazing property values. The City’s Code Enforcement Division is concerned about the preservation, maintenance and aesthetics of all residential, commercial and industrial properties throughout the City but it takes a village – they need your help. It takes the cooperation of all property owners and tenants. Keeping properties maintained is not only pleasing to the eye, but it benefits your pocketbook or bottom-line too. The City has certain property maintenance standards and having those protects surrounding owners and tenants from a possible unresponsible owner/tenant that might otherwise not keep up their property. The City has two comprehensive brochures to help you to understand the Codes. The Florida Fire Code is another important set of Codes to be aware of for individuals in multifamily dwellings as well as single-family homes. In Florida and most states, open flames, cooking devices with open flames, and other similar devices are prohibited on any balcony or overhanging portion or within 10 feet of any structure. 10.10.6.1 - Other than one and two-family dwellings, no hibachi, grill or other similar devices used for cooking, heating, or any other purpose shall be used or kindled on any balcony, under any overhanging portion, or within 10 ft. of any structure. How Can You Grill In a Multi-Family Dwelling? Electric grill is your answer. 10.10.6.11- Listed electric portable, tabletop grills, not to exceed 200 square inches of cooking surface, or other similar electrical appliances shall be permitted. In the statement above, 'listed' means that United Laboratories (UL) has tested representative samples of the product and determined that it meets UL’s requirements. For a product to become UL Listed, it must go through several tests and meet high safety standards. However, check with your Homeowners Association to ensure that grilling is not prohibited by your association or apartment. Board made rules, if reasonably related to safety, can be stricter than the minimum requirements of state law.

Italian American Club Can you hear the party horns? The Bonaventure Italian American Club is on the way to an enjoyable 2023. In January they were off to see the Bronx Wanderers at the Sunrise Lakes Theater. The Annual horse Racing event was held at their general meeting. In February the BIAC attended The Little Anthony Show. The BIAC general meeting in February included Card Bingo, coffee and pastries. The clubs next outings will be to Sunrise Lakes in March to see Beatlemaniax and then to Pembroke Pines Theater to see Pippin. We are having fun and making great memories. The vibe is right. Ciao just for now, Brenda Falsone

Directors Report By Executive Director, Jorge Poviones Dear Town Center Club Members, Wow, we are already in March. It seems that time is passing faster than most of us would like, so it is important that we enjoy the moments in our lives that make everything special. As Spring approaches, remember to spring your clocks forward this year on March 12th. This means that we will have more afternoon daylight, so get out there and enjoy the fresh air, sunlight, and activities that South Florida offers. Kindness is free and it is everywhere, so look for it, give it and be open to it. I want to thank our members for their overwhelming praises and recognition for the wonderful changes that have taken place in the Town Center Club over the past 3 years and those that make it all possible. As many of you understand, we have a large property consisting of over 70,000 SF on 10 acres, with a very diverse number of members and activities, so it is not always easy to keep this property beautiful and functional, but we always give it our best efforts. Our 2023 Board Members and Committees are ready, willing, and able to help us navigate our projects, programs, and activities and a special thank you goes out to our returning President, Mike Hessney, who supports us, believes in our vision, and works tirelessly to see it happen.
