Davis Islands Newsletter April 2018

 

 

 

 THE DAVIS ISLANDS NEWSLETTER

Greetings and welcome to the April issue
of the Islands View newsletter.

This month there are a few fun events to participate in on the Islands. The First Responders Day at the DI Fire Station is always a special treat for the kids, the resident’s social this month is in a beautiful location and there is a great opportunity to clean up our Islands.

As Spring gets into full bloom, I encourage you to get out and meet your neighbors and fellow Islanders. We are a great community with a ton of amenities; at the same time, it is really the people that make our home so special.

Have a great month and I hope to see you around the Islands!

Annual Egg Hunt on Davis Islands

iOn March 24th, eighty children gathered at the Davis Islands Garden Club to hunt over 2,000 eggs!

This annual event has become a huge hit on the Islands with each year growing larger.  The event was hosted by the Davis Islands Civic Association with the Davis Islands Garden Club offering their wonderful waterfront location for the event.
Keep up to date on the DI Civic Association on their facebook page!

April Islands Events

April 19th (6:30pm) Resident’s Social – The next resident’s social will be held at the Davis Islands Yacht Club.  This is a great event for Islands Residents to meet each other as well as their Civic Association board members. And if you haven’t been to our yacht club, the view is a must see.
April 28th (11am-1pm): First Responder’s Appreciation Day at the DI Fire station.  This is a wonderful event for Islands residents especially their children to meet our first responders and even take a tour of a fire truck.
April 28th (9am-12pm) Great American Cleanup: Join your neighbors as we clean up the Islands. Meet in the parking lot between the dog parks on DI and by the boat ramp. Registration begins at 8am and the event runs through noon. Clean up the green spaces on DI and the coastal areas. There is usually plenty of coffee and donuts for the volunteers! Thanks to Tanya, TJ and Eli King for leading this effort year after year!
Thursday Night Races – each Thursday the Davis Islands Yacht Club has sailing races from now until October 18th.  The wonderful thing about this weekly activity is that NonMembers are encouraged to come and participate.  This is a great way to learn more about sailing and actually get your feet wet.  For more information visit DIYC.com

Book of the Month

As you probably can guess by now I enjoy reading books that improve myself professionally, personally and spiritually.  Included in this list are autobiographies of people that have reached the pinnacle of success in whatever they desire to accomplish.  This month I focused on “Richard Branson Losing My Virginity”. While the title of this book might raise an eyebrow, the content is anything but.  The stories that Branson shares regarding his personal and professional challenges/successes are both entertaining and motivating.  From his hot air ballon flights around the world, to the creation of the Virgin Company.  His first hand accounts give you real insight into the personality, mind and determination of a successful entrepreneur who did it his way.

Davis Islands Welcome Packet
