Check out what's happening in the village...
In the winter season, when the Village Hall is not so busy, TSVA presents cultural or educational events in the Hall. Since 2014, there have been lectures, documentary films, staged readings of plays, a puppet show, a CPR training session, and a Show and Tell by Shoreham residents about their hobbies.
Lectures are recorded on video and posted on the TSVA website, www.shorehamtsva.org, so if you miss a lecture, you can see it the next day on the web. Most people who attend donate $5, enough to pay for refreshments, royalties, and other expenses. Generous special donations by residents have provided audio-visual equipment, which is also used by the Village government.
This year we've helped about ten individuals by driving them about 250 times. There are plenty of us who are eager to help, more than are listed on the magnet. We all are happy to not only drive someone, but to do errands for them. Anyone who needs a ride down to a Club or Village event should not hesitate to call us. AND, of course, we'd be pleased if they asked us for a drive to TSVA's events this winter.
The TSVA Welcome Committee has been greeting new residents for over twenty years. Visiting with friendly smiles and lots of helpful information about our community, the committee aspires to deliver a neighborly welcome message and extend a hand to orienting our new friends about all our village has to offer. A gift bag with loads of Village info and presents from the Country Club and TSVA top off our good wishes. So if you know of a new neighbor, surely give us a call so we can drop in to deliver our good tidings and good cheer.

Friends of the Parks Commissioner
This is the second year that the Friends of the Parks Commissioner (FOPC) has been operating in the Village. It consists of a small group of neighbors who volunteered to come together to do some jobs around the neighborhood that the Parks Commissioner and we considered beneficial to the area. As volunteers, we supplement the work done by the commercial landscapers without incurring additional costs.
We recently participated, in an advisory capacity under the leadership of Mary Schwartz, to work in the sump on Circle Drive that is important in the mosquito control and drainage; performed volunteer weeding in areas near the cliff and the hillside area below Beach Road leading down to the sound. It was estimated that the 2015 weeding program saved approximately $4000 in landscape services fees.
Some of the ideas that we are considering for next year include: reduction of invasive plants; and native plant restoration, i.e., returning certain areas to native plants and trees.
The Friends of the Parks Commissioner is always looking for neighbors to join our group. People may contribute as much or as little work as they want, and we always ask for ideas that might be implemented over the next few years.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF TSVA
