BE SURE TO ATTEND OUR MEETING ON TUESDAY, JUNE 7TH – AFTER THIS MEETING WE WILL ADJOURN FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS – UNTIL OCT. 4TH. We will elect officers and board members for the coming year. We will hear from BSO Chief Kevin Butler, and Traci Pollock will give us an update on the Sistrunk Blvd. project. We have asked LaTissa Collins attend to respond to your questions and comments on the Neighborhood Improvement Project. The Town of Davie is continuing to work with Broward County in hammering out the details of an agreement for the annexation of Broadview Park. We will pass on additional information as it becomes available.

SAY GOODBYE TO THE BEE. THIS WILL BE OUR LAST ISSUE!!!
We are discontinuing the publication of the Bee. As usual we will announce meetings by putting out signs at the various streets that provide entrance into the community. In the future you will have to check our website, BroadviewPark.org, or receive other important news items by e-mail. Be sure that the civic association has your e-mail address by submitting it to broadviewpark@ hotmail.com. Include your name, address, and phone number. If you do not have computer access, try to find a friend or neighbor who will keep you posted.

DO YOU HAVE A GREEN THUMB?
Part of the Neighborhood Improvement Project are the signs which welcome people to our various neighborhoods. The signs are surrounded by flowers and plants. When the project is finished, it is likely that maintenance of these gardens will become the responsibility of our residents. Would you be willing to adopt one of these gardens? It is our understanding that the sprinklers are set for automatic watering, so the gardener’s main job would be occasional weeding. Please call Jan at 954-583-0796 to volunteer.
When we are annexed into Davie, we anticipate that Davie will maintain the entryway gardens on 49th Avenue. They might also be persuaded to take over the care of the little gardens.

SUNVIEW WELCOMES FPL GIFT AS THEY PREPARE FOR SUMMER FUN
Florida Power and Light has donated $1500 to Sunview Park as a gift from their “Care” program. In addition, 20 FPL Care volunteers descended on the park on May 7th to plant a new flowerbed by the front gate and paint the concession stand building down by the ballfields. Many thanks to FPL for sponsoring this great program.
Rick Newman, park manager, says they still have a few openings for their summer program for children age 6 to 17. The program runs from June 20th to August 12th from 9am to 5pm. Children can arrive as early as 8am and stay as late as 6pm. Activities include games, arts and crafts, speakers, field trips, talent shows, and even trips to Central Regional Park in Lauderhill for swim lessons. Contact Sunview now to get a spot for your child. 954-791-1040.
Mr. Newman cautions to be sure to lock your cars. They have been troubled with car burglaries, and are working with BSO to add warning signs, more lights, and deputy patrols.

ANNUAL CLEAN-UP DRAWS A GREAT CROWD
Our community clean-up on April 2nd brought out 63 volunteers, including a big delegation of students from Stranahan High. 63 is probably an all-time record. Many thanks to all of you who turned out to improve our neighborhood. You got rid of 42.7 tons of trash. Bill Hoy, our veep, who coordinated the project along with the county’s waste and recycling division, said there was not as much trash scattered around this year as there has been in the past. It would be nice to think we were all being more careful about dropping litter, but it may be because of the Neighborhood Improvement Project. Whatever the reason, let’s keep it clean.

MY HEROES
In this final issue of the Bee, we want to express our sincerest thanks to Dale Bailey. He offered his services back in December 1998 and has printed the newsletter for us for the last 12 ½ years.
And we want to recognize those of you who faithfully deliver the Bee. It takes 25 people to get the newsletter to all the single family homes. Some of you are fairly new to the job and some of you have been on the job for nearly 20 years. God bless you all.
