Added to the list this  month  is

Animal Lover Pet Sitting
   [listed under Pet Sitters]
Remember, to access this list the link can be found at the bottom of this email as well as just under the top of this email under REGENCY EMAILER (VENDOR LIST)

BARBIE DOLLS SLIDESHOW

It’s time for a break with the Regency Memory Photos. However, If you want your picture(s) to be on a slideshow, please send them to:

rpost@Monmouth.com

Remember, I am still looking for more pictures of residents who were in the Armed services in their uniforms.

The following slideshow features some  of the dolls made by Mattel featuring Barbie.  My wife was a HUGE collector of Barbie dolls. It was so easy buying her presents.  Just buy her a Barbie doll that she doesn’t have.  She never even took them out of the boxes.  She even has the 4 doll collection featuring Barbie in a dress made from the curtain of GONE WITH THE WIND (green dress).  Enjoy the slideshow.  For many, this should bring back memories

LET’S PLAY SONGS RECOGNIZING SOME OF THE WOMEN OF REGENCY

I do have a very extensive music collection which includes many songs that were created using women’s names.  There are about 100 of these songs in my collection so each week I will put a few of them on my website

PICTURE OF THE WEEK

 

RESURECTION OF OUR FORMER PURCHASING GROUP

Many of you might still remember when we had a Purchasing Group (non-HOA).  Our current Vendor List that Rich Strug is still doing came about through this group.  We also dealt with many services, like home Security (Alarm Relay).  Most of us joined Alarm Relay since they were charging only $8.99/month (which they still do) as compared to $25 or higher.  They also gave homeowners back $25 if they joined vs. paying me a finders fee, which of course I wouldn’t accept

With our CUTTING THE CORD coming up soon, I thought maybe we should resurrect this Group to negotiate prices with Comcast.  Naturally, it will be your decision whether or not to accept it or not accept it or your going to another company completely.

I always felt that with numbers, you can negotiate better pricing vs. each of us doing it on our own.

I guess you have heard about Comcast’s TRIPLE PLAY program but how about a QUADRUPLE PLAY program?  What is this?  Many of us have been looking into possibly getting rid of Verizon for our wireless phones and using another less expensive service.  As I discussed with some residents, I have Verizon currently and I have never had a problem.  Those of you who have Comcast for mobile, let me know if you have had any problems.  Also, if I change everything over to Comcast, what happens if we have an Emergency power failure?  Are all our phones, landlines and mobile, inoperable? 

At this point, my involvement will NOT be done prior to the Board saying officially that we are cutting the cord.  Once cut, then I will see who wants to get involved.

THE LAUNCH OF A NEW COST SAVINGS PROGRAM FOR REGENCY RESIDENTS

I was contacted by Richard Weinstein, a resident of Regency that he was interested in starting a cost savings program for residents. Please read his message to all of our residents.   He might only have 4 vendors so far, but this list will be expanding.. 

Dear Residents:

 We are excited to launch a new service effective immediately called SAVS (Special Added Value Services).

 This service will include restaurants and food services that wish to have their company circulated to our community recognizing the unique size of Regency at Monroe.

 These companies in exchange for us to circulate their services to our community are offering discounts when and if we choose to purchase their products or services.

 In some cases the discounts require a minimum initial purchase and some are a straight discount. When shopping at these businesses please make sure to bring your access card proving that you are a resident of the Regency.  Please feel free to suggest any vendors that would like to be on our SAVS list as we are looking to grow this program to be an excellent value to our residents.

 Also note that in order to participate in our SAVS program we are requiring a minimum discount of 10%. Ideally, we are attempting to restrict our vendors within a 20 mile radius.

 Please see initial list attached.
