Skidaway’s tiny, brown, furry bats, affectionately called sky puppies, don’t wear capes as they dart about above us at dusk, but they might be considered superheroes nonetheless. 

According to State Wildlife Biologist Katrina Morris, bats consume between 50-to-100 percent of their body weight in mosquitoes, beetles, and other flying insects every night. They also save farmers an estimated $22 billion a year in crop losses due to their consumption of destructive insects, and help pollinate various crops including bananas, dates, cocoa, avocados, and mangoes, she said.

President, The Landings Association
  • During the month of February, we celebrate passion with special days such as Valentine’s Day, on which we recognize our passion for special people, sweethearts, best friends, and close family members. We also recognize passion for our country as we celebrate national patriots on Presidents’ Day. We should also recognize some of our friends and neighbors who demonstrate passion for this beautiful island home of ours.
  • There are many volunteers who support The Landings Association’s (TLA) staff in maintaining and preserving The Landings.
  • If you have been in TLA’s offices, or if you have called TLA, then you have interacted with TLA staff in the Community Relations Department. Their purpose is to ensure high quality service by assisting customers, answering phones, processing vehicle decals, and providing overall clerical support. 
  • Another department working in TLA’s offices is the Finance Department, which consists of four staff members. They manage major programs including Accounting and Annual Dues (Assessments) Collection, Financial Management and Reporting, and Insurance and Risk Management.
  • Likewise, numerous resident volunteers serve on TLA’s committees to support the dedicated TLA staff. One such committee is the Finance Committee, which reports to TLA’s Board of Directors. Serving on this committee are 12 resident volunteers who have various backgrounds which include finance, budgets, auditing, accounting, or business management.
  • As we enjoy this wonderful island and the active lifestyle about which we are so passionate, let us also remember the dedicated individuals who diligently work to maintain and preserve The Landings.

As The Landings Association gears up for our major streets resurfacing project for the year, we need to make sure the storm drains beneath our roads are in good shape. Otherwise, the paving may have to be redone quicker than normal, due to depressions from potentially failing drainpipes. Additionally, this year marks the golden anniversary of our community, and regular check-ins and proactive maintenance on our infrastructure help to ensure our community thrives for many more years to come.
