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 new 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.
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!

St. Patrick’s Day Meet & Greet
On March 10th there was wonderful weather for our outdoor St. Patrick’s Day party at the Sandbar Sports Grill.
We had a great turnout, saw a lot of wearin’ o’ the green, and met many of our neighbors!
Cantamar provided some delicious appetizers: chicken strips, mozzarella sticks, tortillas, chips and sauces.
Lots of St. Patrick’s Day items were raffled off, allowing many neighbors to continue the festivities at home.

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!!!!
Turkey Raffle Winner
Congratulations to the Daniels family of SW 204th Lane,
the winner of the 2017 Turkey Raffle selected on November 17th.
They are receiving a Publix gift card just in time for their turkey dinner.
Another Terrific Halloween Party
It was another wonderful—and a little scary—Halloween Party!
We had wonderful weather and a great crowd in fun costumes. The kids enjoyed the bounce house and candy bags.
Thanks to Comcast for providing the pizza; cotton candy and popcorn rounded out the goodies.
The crowd enjoyed the lively Apple Bobbing, Mummy Wrapping, and Costume contests.
The evening wrapped up with an invasion of “zombies” mingling with the crowd—scary or fun??
A little of both?
