Our active Social Committee with the support of the Board of Directors
plans a variety of fun and interesting activities for the neighborhood throughout the year.
These events are a great way to get to know your neighbors, and are why we’re known as such a friendly community.
There are activities for children of all ages, and adults, too.
A message from John Bourne, the Chair of the Social Committee:
I love brainstorming and getting ideas from our community of world travelers,
so if there is an event you think that our families would enjoy,
please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (put “Social Committee” in the subject line)
NOTE: Running with the bulls… NOT going to happen, lol lol.
Congratulations to our Turkey Raffle Winner!
Congratulations to Lisa Cardali, the winner of this year’s Turkey Raffle!
Wishing Lisa, and all our residents, a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Another Spectacular Halloween Party!
Our new Butler figure greeted all the witches and goblins (and princesses and pirates)
at this year’s Halloween Party by lighting up and talking as they approached.
And the weather cooperated for a pleasant evening—not too hot.
We had great participation in our Apple Bobbing and Costume Contests.
Congratulations to the winners: Nathan and Michael in the Apple Bobbing Contests;
Arabella for the Under Age 5 Costume Contest and Jada in the Over Age 5 category.
Thanks to Comcast for providing the pizza,
and to our Social Committee for all their hard work putting this popular event together
and providing popcorn, cotton candy, and the goody bags of candy for the kids…
and of course, to all of our neighbors who came out in costume (and not) to enjoy this wonderful evening!
Many Thanks to our Board and Volunteers
for the Independence Day Flags
Didn’t Cantamar look wonderfully patriotic for the Fourth of July!
Many thanks to our Board of Directors and the Volunteers
who placed the flags throughout the neighborhood.
Also, many thanks to our patriotic neighbors who flew the flag
and/or added small flags to their flower beds.
It really looked wonderful!

Santa Brings a little HO HO HO to the Holidays in Cantamar!
HO HO HO! Santa arrived in Cantamar on a beautiful Saturday morning, December 16th,
to greet all the little boys and girls in our neighborhood (well, some were not that “little.”)
With his jolly laugh and a twinkle in his eye he took pictures with all the children and listened to their Christmas wishes.
The day was warm and sunny with a cool breeze,
perfect for a little Santa time, and some cookies and chocolate milk or water.
But Santa’s favorite part was all the toys collected for the Cutler Bay Police Toy Drive,
helping children who might not otherwise get gifts have a very Merry Christmas!
So, as Santa always says:
HO HO HO… Merry Christmas to ALL!!!!
