CONTENT OF MY EMAILS
After the recent email from our Board and Management, I have given some thought regarding what I write about.
For 15 years I’ve dealt with issues that would have positive and/or negative effects on our community. Should I be the person who questions Board decisions? Should I be the person who would recommend voting for a resident if he was running in an election? I have been a member of many Township committees and when some of these committees make recommendations that make sense to me, should I write about something like this? Should I write about how we are all suffering from what the State has done to give us practically nothing for aid to Monroe Township schools. I sat with many politicians who gave our group(s) promises. but never fulfilled these promises. Should I write about this?
Well as most of you know, I have one main concern, my wife and her health. Everything else is meaningless at this time.
So, my decision is simple. I will no longer deal with those things that I mentioned above. I am sorry if this will disappoint some of you but I learned, especially today (Wednesday), that there is more important things in life then what I get myself involved with.
I do hope that everyone understands especially friends who ask me to put information in my emails regarding running for any type of office, which I will no longer be doing.
EMAIL ADDRESSES DROPPING OFF MY HOA EMAILER LIST
Each week I would get a few email addresses dropping off my HOA EMAILER list. When notified, I send the HOA the residents email and ask to add the email address back onto my list.
The problem is that it seems to be increasing more and more each week. The second problem is there are times that the email address does go back on the list but the resident is still not receiving the emails. Guess what, I am one of those residents who doesn’t receive my own emails.
The other problem, which was just brought to my attention is that you may receive some but not all of my emails, so the problem is sporadic.
Here’s the problem I face. Mailchimp allows me to send one message out every 24 hours and they also have limits on the number of email addresses that I have. If I exceed it, then I pay for it.
As you all know Arthur Ehrlich has saved me a load of money because he didn’t charge me for switching my website to GO DADDY. However, I do pay for GO DADDY and some of the extras I added on. Over the years emailing has cost me well over $10,000 and the answer is NO – REGENCY RESIDENTS WILL NOT PAY FOR ME TO DO THE EMAILING.
I will try working the problem out with Stu Goldstein, Board President and Stephanie. I think the only solution is to drop the HOA EMAILER and find a site that I can send out multiple emails having a large email list. As you know, there are times when I could send out 2 or more emails in the same day. I am writing to you if you know a site (at a reasonable cost) that can handle my emails). I will still keep MAILCHIMP for my weekend emails since it seems to work with very little problems.
FISHING CLUB NEWS
For the last 8 weeks most bottom fishery seasons were closed and Striped Bass had not come in yet because the water was too warm, it is best between 50 to 55 degrees. As you all know the two hurricanes did effect the sea conditions off New York and New Jersey also contributing to chasing the fish into deeper water, well off our coast. As of October 22 the Sea Bass season will open again and we would hope the Striped bass will also be in and biting. There will be at least two more trips this year based on the weather and the action.
Next year we will do as we did in the past and set up at least one trip a month and the schedule will be in the clubhouse for your advanced planning and to reserve a spot on each trip. All are welcome including friends, family and grandchildren.
Fishing Club meetings are held the third Monday of each month in our Arts and Crafts room at 7:00pm, all are welcome, please join us. Fishing Club Applications are in the clubhouse and you only pay for the trips. If you need further information my telephone number is on the application.
BEWARE OF SCAMS REGARDING MICROSOFT AND HACKING OF YOUR COMPUTER
Hope you will print this Ron After a harrowing nightmare and sounding like a complete idiot I felt I should share this with my neighbors. The hackers are out there.
My computer was locked and a black screen came up with all kinds of codes and a voice telling me not to turn off my computer I was hacked and must call this number immediately. This was supposedly coming from Microsoft. I totally panicked and called the number and they were in my system ..Iwas totally fooled but I can’t tell you how authentic and professional this appeared.
My friends jumped on this and got to my bank,, credit cards, soc security, pension etc etc.Thankfully for them and our Regency Senior Tech team I was back to normal. Hope this helps someone.

LETS TALK TURKEY 2017
While still enjoying the last days of summer, the Regency Culture Club is looking ahead to fall. We are gearing up for our annual Ten for Turkey Drive. As the holidays draw near, turkeys will be absent from many households.
The Regency Culture Club supports our community by assisting the Monroe Township Office on Aging Holiday Food Basket Drive. We are once again turning to our friends and neighbors and requesting each household makes a minimum donation of $10.00 so that we can put a turkey on the table to complete the holiday picture for many township families.
One turkey goes a long way in providing a number of meals. And the bones, oh those bones make a great soup.
Your generosity over the past 13 years that we have been collecting Ten for Turkeys is much appreciated. Your support is urgently needed once again. Help make a difference in the lives of our township neighbors in need.
Please make your checks payable to the Regency Culture Club and leave them in the mailbox of Milt & Sue Paris at 25 Crenshaw Ct, Ken & Joan Kastin 10 Harbor Town Way, Sue Miller 19 Torrey Pines, Barry & Laura Shandler 10 Hogan , Marsha Krane 16 Country Club Drive, Jim & Sue Graham 13 Ballybunion, Marge Weinberg 17 Tamarack Road, Sandy and Larry Cains 94 Kings Mill Road
