Prepare for a Hurricane
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2018
Prepare for a hurricane before leaving!
LIV's Safety Committee reminds owners to prepare property and secure outdoor items before leaving for the season. Hurricane Harvey barely missed LIV, demonstrating the unpredictable nature of tropical storms. Many owners remember to install hurricane shutters, but many forget to secure patio table and chairs, BBQ grills, golf carts and other outdoor items. Securing everything will help keep people safe, lower property damage risks, and help keep debris out of the canals. If you have any questions, please call the Welcome Center.

Several pets have recently been poisoned by eating Rat Poison Blocks left in yards.

PLEASE: Rat Poison should never be placed in a yard without putting it in a bait box first. Pets think it’s a treat!

PLEASE: When walking your dogs (cats) keep them on a short leash……they are attracted to the smell of Rat Bait. It can make them violently ill and possibly kill them!

Happy Fall Y’all! It’s hard to believe that it will officially be Autumn on September 23. I guess really the only change for us will be a slight drop in temperature and humidity. We will welcome that after a summer of record heat advisories and many days of 3-digit temperatures! We have completed the remodel of the Pro Shop and have just about completed the interior painting of all common buildings and they look really nice. Tennis court sunscreens and fence posts were repaired/replaced. We also saved $300 per 100 windshield stickers by using a new vendor to purchase them from. I need your help on a couple of things please. Every home needs a little TLC every now and then, especially after a long hard summer. Please declutter porches and yards and power wash the mildew from the siding. I know we all want to be proud of LIV, so please pitch in and do your part. Thanks in advance for your help in this matter. Can’t always make it to the Welcome C e n t e r during business hours? You will now be able to drop your Assoc. dues off in our secure drop box on the East side of the Welcome Center. Please put your check in an envelope with your name and lot number on the front and that’s all there is to it. I hope you all had a great summer and have an even greater autumn. Please don’t hesitate to call the office if I can help in any way. Take Care and be careful out there! Karen Pike

March 2019
Hello LIV, It’s March and we are nearing the end of cooler days. Warmer temperatures and our dear Winter Texan friends will begin to say goodbye. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you all a little better this season. I wish you safe travels on your way back to your summer home. March 2 was the LIV Annual Meeting, when owners voted for three positions open on the Board of Directors. Remember, you can’t complain if you didn’t vote! Don’t forget the last big hurrah for the season, the Luau on March 9 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. with Gilbert in the Rec Hall. Below is a list of tasks accomplished in February: Spraying for mosquitos and clover is ongoing. Laguna Madre replaced a main water valve by Sea Cottages. Replaced light fixtures under canopy at main entrance to Rec Hall. Final steps for launch of new rental software in March. Ballots mailed, owners list refined and consolidated into Quick Books. Learned new technique to enter gate stickers/cards into system to save space. Exit gate arm repaired and operational. Solved coverage for lunches at Pro Shop. Installed heaters outside of Pro Shop with dedicated circuits. That’s all for now. Don’t hesitate to call me at the number below with your cares and concerns. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Merry Christmas, everyone! If you have already arrived at LIV, I hope you are all enjoying our wet weather. It’s not what we are accustomed to this time of year, but we will make the best of it. For those of you who are celebrating the holidays with your family before arriving, I hope your trip down is a safe one. I hope that you will find that LIV is looking very nice indeed. The board members and the employees have worked very hard over the summer. The building exteriors were painted, and the fence was renewed. The pool is being remodeled and looks great. There are other improvements that are too numerous to mention here. We will continue to improve our wonderful community, so enjoy it! A Warm Witty Christmas Story… It was the day after Christmas at the town church. Pastor John was looking at the nativity scene outside when he noticed the baby Jesus was missing from the figures. Immediately, Pastor John’s thoughts turned to calling in the local policeman but as he was about to do so, he saw little Nathan with a red wagon, and in the wagon was the figure of the little infant, Jesus. Pastor John approached Nathan and asked him, “Well, Nathan, where did you get the little infant?” Nathan looked up, smiled and replied, “I took him from the church.’’ ‘And why did you take him? ‘ With a sheepish grin, Nathan said, “Well, Pastor John, about a week before Christmas I prayed to Lord Jesus. I told him if he would bring me a red wagon for Christmas, I would give him a ride around the block in it. To all of you, I wish the happiest of holidays.

I hope you are able to spend Thanksgiving with family, friends and loved ones. Take time to be thankful for your blessings as well as enjoying a wonderful meal together. I’d like to welcome back our Winter Texan folks. It’s good to see you back again. We have had quite a bit of rain in the Valley lately and flooding in some communities. We are fortunate that we have had no flooding in our little slice of heaven. Oh the joys of living on an island! Our outdoor pool is being refurbished as well as the outdoor showers and decking. Please enjoy your newly refurbished pool area. Our landscaping is looking so pretty since the Maintenance Department has been hard at work on it. Everything is starting to look neat and tidy as we work our way around the village. Our parking lots are getting a much needed facelift as well. We are repairing, resurfacing and striping them as well as paving the road beside the tennis courts. Please take part in the activities planned for the Fall/Winter Season at Long Island Village. The D & E Committee has a great calendar of events for you to enjoy. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have questions or need help. Please note my new email address below.

Happy Fall Y’all! If it’s fall, I can’t tell it. Hope it feels more like autumn where you are. I love the hot weather though, that’s why I’m here. It’s easier on the ol’ bones if you know what I mean. The maintenance crew is really making headway on sprucing up the trees, shrubs and flower beds. You won’t believe your eyes when you arrive. Everything is looking so nice. The exterior painting is just about complete, and it has made a big difference. Next year, I hope to head to the interior with the paint brush! The Welcome Center staff has been working feverishly to get our records up to date. Thank you for your cooperation as we call you for the latest info. We have had plenty of rain lately after a summer of d r o u g h t , it’s amazing to me how quick things can green up after a rain. It’s almost like magic after a sweltering hot, dry summer. It is really beautiful around here. We just decorated the Welcome Center for Halloween, and it looks frightful. Stop in for some candy.
I am looking forward to seeing you all as you start to trickle in. Until then, take care and don’t forget to call or stop in if I can help in any way.

Hello LIV Owners! Summer is over in most parts of the USA, but not here in the RGV. Warm weather still makes its presence known here for months to come. That is why we live here after all! I hope your summer was a good one, we have had a very busy one here at LIV. We have just given our rental program an overhaul. If you are contemplating the notion of renting your home out while you are away, you won’t be disappointed if you choose the LIV Rental Pool. We maintain a higher standard when it comes to our rentals. Housekeeping and the front desk supervisor do an initial inspection of the home. Pete and I do the final inspections and we all ask ourselves, “Would I want to stay here?” If the answer is yes, then we welcome the property into our rental pool and give it the attention it deserves by adding it to the rental page on our website. Join the LIV Rental Program today by calling the Welcome Center at (956)943-3131.
We have just about completed the painting and repairs of the entire exterior of our community. I must say that it looks so fresh and bright. I hope you will enjoy the improvements at the pool area which include the resurfacing of the pool, new tile work and the addition of new balconies on the exterior of the Activity Building. We have been very busy making it look wonderful. Our Board of Directors have done a great job this summer allowing us to implement all of the improvements. Kudos to you. Our maintenance staff has focused on the sprinkler system and plumbing around the community. We have saved thousands of dollars by identifying and repairing leaks. They have worked very hard at this task all summer.
Our housekeeping staff is focusing more on our common areas to make sure we have clean facilities. Please let our staff know how much you appreciate them, they work hard to make sure this is the best place in the Valley to live. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any cares or concerns, I am happy to help. Until we meet again, take good care.

LIV Owners!
We are about to enter the hottest time of our summer. Temperatures already in the 100s in mid-July and bound to get hotter. I hope that if you are away from here, it’s not as hot and if you are here at the Village, well, you already know how this plays out!
The following are some updates on our current projects.
The fence along Sand Dollar Drive is complete. The painters have progressed to the wall behind the Welcome Center. Some of the concrete will need to be replaced as it has deteriorated in some areas.
We have had two meetings with the Rental Committee in order to further improve our rental program. We are currently looking over 
Rental Agreement to make any changes or updates. We are working on the check-in process as well as the intake process for new rentals. We are doing in depth inspections of rentals in the pool. Letters will go out next week to inform owners of repairs/improvements that are necessary to remain in the rental pool.
Five new chairs have been added to the Pro Shop area. Grass is being removed from all Tee boxes. and the laying of new sod will commence. We will use the removed sod to cover bare areas throughout the golf course.
The area where the old mailboxes were located has been cleaned up and we have placed temporary tables there. We will construct new tables that will accommodate folks who need a surface to work from their computer. Construc­tion continues on the balconies by the pool area.
I hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you are. We have had several great activities put on by the Summer D & E. The golf cart parade was a hoot! The LIV Backyard BBQ was fun for all who attended!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any cares or concerns, I am happy to help. Until we meet again, take good care. Karen Pike

Happy Summer LIV Owners! I hope you are all enjoying your summer whether you are here or away. We had a great Memorial Day and are looking forward to 4th of July celebrations with a Golf Cart Parade. We have had an extremely hot and dry spring, and now we can’t seem to stop the rain! Even though we certainly need it badly, some areas have been flooded more than anyone has ever seen, including when Dolly hit in 2008. Not to worry…LIV has not experienced any flooding. The small canopy at the outdoor pool has been installed. The large canopy is to be installed as soon as weather permits. Bianca Medina has been promoted as our new Front Desk Supervisor at the Welcome Center. We have several new front desk staff as well. Please welcome Doralee, Telly, David and Imelda. Bianca and her staff are organizing and updating the front office and are here to help you with their smiling faces. Please join me in congratulating them all. Barbara Van Ingen has been promoted to Accounting Manager. She brings years of experience and talent to the position. Isabel Hamblin has been promoted to Bookkeeping Assistant and she brings years of banking experience to add to the talent pool. They are working diligently to bring the bookkeeping department to new levels. Please help me in congratulating both of them on their new positions as well. The painting project is moving along nicely and they are doing a good job. The Rec Hall and Restaurant are complete. We are getting many comments on how nice and clean the buildings are looking. They are working around the back of the building now. The fence along Seashell is complete. The fence along Sand Dollar Drive is the only remaining fence to be repaired. Materials are ordered for that. All lift stations are being overhauled and will be complete before the 4th of July onslaught of folks celebrating the holiday. Whew! That’s all for now. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any cares or concerns, I am happy to help. Until we meet again, take good care. Joy is the feeling of grinning inside. -Melba Colgrove Karen Pike

Greetings from Paradise!
It’s still spring, but it sure feels like summer around here. The sun is shining, the temps are high, the sea birds are calling and the water is blue. There is a lot to be grateful for when you look around this place we call home.
The painting has begun! The Welcome Center is complete and looks great. The painters have moved to the Activity Building to prepare the building for paint. A fresh coat of paint makes a world of difference in the appearance of a place, don’t you think?
More good news. Please welcome Julio Martinez opening the “Signature Grill” in Long Island Village. The menu looks great and we are looking forward to having a
restaurant in LIV again. Stop on by for breakfast or lunch, no need to leave the island!
The upgrade for the software used for rentals is now complete. Your experience with rentals and the Welcome Center should be much smoother now. We are working to streamline the processes for everything that the Welcome Center handles to make all your transactions with us easier and more accurate.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any cares or concerns; I am happy to help. Until we meet again, take good care. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” ~ Steve Jobs

Happy spring everyone! I hope you are enjoying the wonderful weather we are having, very unusual for this time of year in the Valley. I look forward to meeting all of you and working together to make LIV an even better place to live and enjoy. I am honored to be associated with Long Island Village and will work hard to earn your trust and respect. We have begun making improvements to our rental program. Rental property inspections will be done on a regular basis and processes for a smooth operation will be implemented as well. Spring weather, puts me in mind to do some spring cleaning around the Village. We are taking bids for painting the facilities, so be on the lookout for a fresh new coat of paint on our buildings, etc. Deep cleaning will commence on all the buildings as well. We have a new chef coming to open the Grill. There will more details forthcoming as we progress with this exciting venture. Yum! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, I am here to help with anything I can. What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.~ Oscar Wilde
