Look For New Decals in 2017 
Beginning in 2017, residents will see new decals on vehicles traveling throughout Sun City. The new resident decals are burgundy with a gold hologram, and new renter decals are blue with a gold hologram. While the green vehicle decals are being phased out, there is no need for residents to change from the green if their decal has not yet expired. When your green decal expires, residents will receive a new burgundy decal when they come to Palmetto Commons to renew.
 
Beginning in February 2017, resident homeowners will be able to purchase an annual decal and barcode for frequent guests such as family and friends. Homeowners will be allotted two annual guest decals per rooftop for a cost of $50 per barcode. The resident sponsoring the guest must be present to purchase the decal and barcode. Resident Services will accept check or member charge. Residents must provide their activity number as well as the guest’s registration, license and insurance information. The barcode and decal must be applied by Community Association staff and is valid for one calendar year.
 
This same option will also be available to vendors in 2017, allowing light commercial vehicles to enter Sun City gates with closer access to the home address.

A New Year, A New You - Mission: Slimpossible 2017

What makes Mission: Slimpossible different from other weight loss programs? We teach you how to “Become your Own Agent of Change.” This means that we give you several tools to get you on the path to make healthier choices. You may not realize it, but you don’t control your body weight. Your body controls it, from the food you eat to how active you are. Everyone knows our weight is a mathematical equation, but are you willing to change the scale? That is the big question. You can control your blood sugar, so by choosing food that stabilizes your blood sugar, you will eat less and have more energy for activity. We will teach you how!
 
Whether you are just beginning your weight loss journey or have a goal weight that you’ve been wanting for years, this program can be what you need to achieve it. Join us this January, compete for cash prizes, and live a healthier, happier life!
Click here to hear what Director of Health and Wellness Cheri Bronsky has to say about the program.
 
The challenge begins January 11 and ends February 17. Classes will be held at the Lakehouse Ballroom every Wednesday and Friday. Cost is $99. Sign up at the Lakehouse Fitness Center. Space is limited
