S.R.O.P.: Don and Lorraine Moriarty were invited by Sarasota County Sheriff Jeff Monge to represent the King's Gate Club at the 20th Anniversary celebration of the School Resource Officer Program, which originated under Captain Bill Balkwill here in Sarasota County and, through his efforts, has now spread across the country to over 500 other corporations. Mention was made of the many times our club had helped the Sheriff's Department with the Dare Program, the Scared Stiff Program and the Bike training in our park. We were asked to thank Club members for their support and help over the years.

KGC TRAVEL: The Broadway production of "BEAUTY & the BEAST" has been booked for a performance at 1 pm matinee, January 25th, 2001, at Barbara Mann Theater in Ft. Myers. The cost is $92 per person for the bus, meal and show. Two buses, a total of 88 tickets have been requested, however, travel must pay for the tickets when contracted. Travel does not have the funds to prepay for this many tickets. So, we have until June 2000 to sell one bus, 44 tickets, so that we may pay for the remaining bus. If we do not sell 44 before June 1 then we will just have the one bus or a total of 44. So, before you go north, make your reservations by check for $92 pp to KGC Travel. Thank you. -Nip.

THOUGHTS: As we start to wind down our winter season, let us take a few moments to reflect on how fortunate we all are to be a part of the Kings Gate community. Our "little bit of Paradise" is truly great! ---SJB.
