EDITORIAL NOTE: I added the erroneous headline last week to the above notice because I assumed that Illinois, Kentucky, N. & S. Carolina, W. Virginia, Kansas and Oklahoma were to be included as in the past. I've since learned that the Hamiltons planned this breakfast for Indiana folks only. --- Sandy McIntyre

ONCE UPON A TIME AT KING'S GATE
A closing on May 15th for new members Peter and Marge Havey who had been renting the home at location 60. A special thanks to Don Toland, Thurman Sorrell and Howard Darbee for mowing lots and weeding around the Castle. Members are requested to help with the Open House in March when radio station W.A.R.M. will be doing a remote from the Castle and hot dogs and cokes will be served to visitors. The opening of the 37 miles section of I-75 from Manatee County through Sarasota County will have an official ribbon cutting on May 10. A traffic light at Laurel Road and U.S. 41 has been approved. Residents raised $4,500 to expand the Castle kitchen with a triple sink, coffee urn, a twenty-foot refrigerator, a Vulcan range, and 28 feet of additional cabinets. The money was derived from pancake breakfasts, a pig roast, and an auction of items donated by members. New autumn King's Gate members still residents were Jack Hedegore, Lois Hill, Eric and Ruth Hazeldine, John and Estelle Soroka. For the month of October advertisements were inviting potential buyers to fly to Sarasota and stay at King's Gate for three days with all meals furnished for $298 with a full refund if they purchase plus a $10,000 savings on all spec homes. The search for buyers heats up. --- Don Moriarty
