OKTOBERFEST 10/28/21 6:30 PM

As you know, we have started having Snell Isle Property Association gatherings at the Woman’s Club (40 Snell Isle Blvd) and our next event is this Thursday, starting at 6:30PM. We’re celebrating HALLOWEEN for the children and hope you’ll bring them in costume - or not - along with their goody bags so they can collect candy and books while they have fun coloring, playing indoor board games, jenga, decorating pumpkins, and having FUN!

For adults, we’ll have beer celebrating Oktoberfest, wine, sangria and lite bites. The children will have lemonade, punch and lots of single-bag chips! It’s a fun time for all with no specific agenda other than getting together to have a good time. We will hear from our Community Police Officer Don Herring and possibly our City Council Chair, Ed Montanari. Otherwise, no speakers though we will announce plans for Holiday, something you surely don’t want to miss!

We hope you’ll come with your children to meet your neighbors and have a jolly good time! The event should be over by 8PM. Masks are welcomed by certainly not mandatory.

Come Join the Fun!


We have a NEW and exciting event coming up on Friday night, November 12th, and I wanted to share it with you so you can mark your calendar and plan to take advantage of it! Our very own Snell Isle resident, Kristin Bitter, has arranged for a FOOD TRUCK FRIDAY event, described below. Not only can you enjoy a smorgasbord or food from 3 different types of Food Trucks but you can also give back to those less fortunate by providing non-perishable food that will go the the St Petersburg Free Clinic, an agency that provides food to the needy, housing to both men and women, medical care at their clinic near 54th Ave N and 4th Street and so much more!

Do mark you calendar for this wonderful event described below. I’m already hungry just thinking about it! If you have questions, Kristin’s email is at the bottom of her message below. Hope we will see you there!

WHEN: Friday, November 12th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (or until food runs out)

WHERE: Snell Isle Boulevard in front of the Vinoy - along the greenspace

WHY: A much-deserved night off from cooking and an opportunity to enjoy time with your Snell Isle neighbors. Bring some chairs and invite your friends for a food truck picnic!

DETAILS: Three food trucks will be in the neighborhood and serving dinner and dessert to all who stop by. Bring cash or credit card and feed the entire family! Take a look at the menus online:

Top Nosh Street Food, St Pete Taco Lady, Glorious Pies

Because we thrive when we give back, please consider bringing non-perishable food items for donation to the St. Pete Free Clinic and Food Bank. Those with no access to cooking or refrigeration could use granola bars, fruit cups, beef jerky, protein bars, crackers, tuna etc. Find out more at St Petersburg Free Clinic

As a resident of Snell Isle, I’m sure you agree we have an absolutely fantastic neighborhood. The SIPOA is your voluntary neighborhood association dedicated to making our neighborhood an even better place. In furtherance of this mission, we organize parties and special events, we communicate with members about issues that impact our neighborhood, and we are responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and beautification of the parks and green spaces throughout our neighborhood.

One of the things that makes our neighborhood so special is the way we go all out for the holidays when we decorate the median with lights, wreaths, and a multitude of other seasonal decorations along Snell Isle Blvd. Every year we make it a point to enlist the services of as many volunteers as we can to help us decorate. We provide all the decorations, pizza, and soft drinks to all who come out to assist. Everyone has a great time, and it is also a wonderful opportunity to meet some of your neighbors at a fun filled event. This year we will be decorating on Saturday November 20th starting at 9:30 am. Please call or email to confirm that you would like to help so we have a good count of who is coming. You can reach out to Howard Pollack, our communications chairman at (516) 356-0988 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We are looking forward to a joyful holiday season and hope you can attend.

SIPOA Board Elections

In our continuing endeavor to improve Snell Isle and in accordance with SIPOA By-Laws we will be holding elections for members to serve on our Board. This coming year, elections will be held in late January of 2022. However, the process begins now, and we are looking for homeowners who are willing to dedicate a little time and to get involved in what goes on here on Snell Isle.

We have several positions to fill and welcome any member of SIPOA to either propose someone for a Board position or to submit themselves and offer to serve on the Board. Anyone who is interested may contact Howard K. Pollack at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call him at (516) 356-0988. He, along with two other members will serve on the nominating committee and will put together a list of those individuals who are willing to serve, and all viable candidates will be put up for nomination prior to the election.

Anyone interested in serving should be advised that meetings are held once a month, usually the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at the Woman’s Club on Snell Isle Blvd. We hope that you will consider serving on our Board and look forward to hearing from you.
