Seminole Manor Neighborhood Association’s new e-mail address

The Seminole Manor Neighborhood Association (SMNA) is pleased to introduce its new e-mail address:

This new e-mail address is part of an ongoing effort to streamline and improve communications within Seminole Manor. Until recently, there were at least three different e-mail lists in use. Some people received e-mails on all three lists while others only got partial information. This new “master” list fixes that problem by sending out the same information to everyone.

All official notices of SMNA will be sent from this e-mail address, and you should use this e-mail address to report any items of concern or interest (both good and bad). Also, if there is information you’d like to share with others, send a request to, and we’ll try to share it with everyone.

Every effort will be taken to minimize the amount of e-mail sent out.   To help you filter through what you do or don’t want to read, the topic of the e-mail will be clearly defined in the “Subject” field. For example, if it’s about crime in the neighborhood, the subject line will say either “Neighborhood Watch” or “Crime Watch.”

Communication is a key component to keeping Seminole Manor a safe and enjoyable place to live.  However, if you would like to UNsubscribe, simply send us a note. On the other hand, if you know someone who wants or should be added, have them send us a note as well.

You can also subscribe to the SMNA e-mail list by visiting the Seminole Manor Neighborhood Association website at  While there, please take a moment to complete the online Neighborhood Registry form which allows us to understand the needs and concerns of residents.

The Seminole Manor Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. Participation is completely voluntary and no fees are collected. However, your tax-deductible donations are welcomed and put into the service of neighborhood improvement.

Presenting … The Front Porch Library!


With lots of hard work and even more sweat, we did it.  Seminole Manor’s Front Porch Library is officially open.  It is a cozy, welcoming space that saw plenty of use on Saturday.  We presently have 10 registered library users and June programs planned for the next two Sundays.

We couldn’t have done it without the help of many volunteers: Ray, Adrian, Katherine, Michelle, Linda, Cathleen, Wilma, Sally, Maya, Jeff, Rob B. and FSU Circle K International.  A great big THANK YOU to all!!  For more pictures, click here.

Seminole Manor’s Front Porch Library is a children’s lending library which aims to provide neighborhood kids with access to books, teach and establish habits of reading and library use, and bring us together as a community.

Drop by during the June library hours:

Sundays 3 – 6pm,

Tuesdays & Thursdays 4 – 6pm

Hours will continue throughout the summer and may change somewhat depending on use.  Children’s programs are planned for Sunday afternoons starting around 3:30pm.

If you are not a Seminole Manor resident but would like to know more about our neighborhood library, including how to start one of your own, please contact us with a comment here on the blog, send an email to smna2007 (at) gmail (dot) com, or call 850.576.6418.
