Over the past few months, the pool area has received several upgrades, including new stall partitions in both bathrooms, as well as a Christmas palm in the hot tub area, which replaced older plants in need of refurbishment.

New Bathroom Partitions

The old bathroom stalls were deteriorating, and it was decided that it was time to install new ones. They are light gray and a thick plastic material, so they should hold up nicely in the Florida weather. Installation was performed by Ron Bochat, Barry Litka, Chris Hirst, Don Cottrell, and Lee Sterner. Dave and Susan Keetch handled the painting and clean-up. Everything looks great!

The Board of Directions would like to thank Charlie and Joanne Hessler for donating the palm. The palm originated from the Hessler’s courtyard, which was overgrown and too big for the area. In an effort to save the palm, the Board accepted the tree and gave permission for it to be planted in the hot tub area. The transplant was challenging, but Charlie, Mike Gallagher, John Gardner, Ron Bochat and Dave (Maintenance staff), were able to get the job done.

New Palm in Hot Tub Area

The donation of this tree is just one of the many landscaping items (such as mulch) donated by residents over the past few months in an effort to renew and refresh the Raintree landscaping.

As such, the Board of Directors would also like to thank MaryJo Cottrell, Tom Rawson, Christine Wanta, and Dave and Susan Keetch for taking an interest in the beautification of Raintree. Over the past few months, they have contributed their time to weeding, mulching and pruning not only around the pool area, but around their condos units.
