South Seminole Heights Civic Association is pleased to announce that Michelle Guarino of 214 W. South Ave. has won the Fall 2021 Beautification Award! Her Classic Craftsman Bungalow is beautiful.
Michelle has been a neighbor of South Seminole Heights for 4 years. When she purchased her 1920s bungalow, it was renovated on the inside but needed some attention on the outside. Michelle spent about a year repainting, installing pavers, laying new sod, and planting jasmine. Michelle used her fantastic decorating skills to dress up the front porch, bringing out the charm one expects from a Heights bungalow. Inside, Michelle enjoys the original flooring and fireplace as well as archways leading from the kitchen into the living room.
Congrats to Michelle and her family for all their hard work maintaining the beauty of our neighborhood. ... See MoreSee Less

Congrats from a fellow bungalow owner.

It is with the utmost concern for the children of our community that the SSHCA Board has cancelled the Halloween Trick-Or-Treating at Rivercrest Park this year. This decision was not made in haste, but in response to the surge of COVID-19 pediatric cases and no vaccines available for young children. The SSHCA much enjoys this annual event and are disappointed we cannot safely host this event this year.
While the event was held during the pandemic last year, COVID-19 infections among children were at the time, quite rare, and many precautions and safety rules were in place for a safe event.
We look forward to resuming the event in 2022, bigger and better than ever! ... See MoreSee Less
