We would like to thank everyone who attended our October 13, 2021 General Membership Meeting. A very special thank you to Mary Julian and Kristine LeClaire of Master Title Service, Inc. and Gulianna Mesropyan of Suncoast Credit Union for providing such a delicious lunch to the attendees. Everyone loved the sandwiches and the homemade cookies. Everything was so fresh and delicious.
We also want to thank Mike Fasano for taking time out of his busy schedule to come here and be our guest speaker. Mike did a great job talking about the evolvement of the Tax Collector’s Office, Homestead Exemptions and Portability.
While lumber costs deserve a lot of the blame for the rising price of new homes, other things – crude oil (paint), drywall, ceramic tile – are also more expensive.
