We hope to see you at the Snell Isle Meet & Greet & Volunteer Appreciation Event on August 23rd at Harvey’s 4th Street Grill from 5:30 – 7:30PM.
It would be fantastic if we could also truly celebrate reaching our $5k financial goal at that event. Many thanks to all who have already participated in our Rally Challenge for the Snell Beautification Project and have also toiled in the heat and humidity freshening planters and statues.
If you’ve not participated with your financial contribution, won’t you help blast us over the top! Your contribution will help move us towards that $5K Rally Store match. We are getting ever so close & closing in towards our Challenge Goal of $5K! Please help out by sending your check to: SIPOA PO Box 7053 St Petersburg, FL 33734 And please note either "Rally" or "Beautification" in the reference line. Now with your help, we can DO THIS

Snell Isle resident Bonnie Hargrett informed me that we have a 6-8 foot alligator possibly living in a storm drain pipe on Coffee Pot Drive by the Masonic Home. The alligator is frequently seen in Coffee Pot Bayou and may be going down towards Bird Island to feed.
The City and FWC are working to trap the alligator, and I have asked Parks and Rec to place a sign up at Northeast Exchange Club Park. The sign was put up earlier today. I have also requested that our Marketing Department get some information up on our website concerning the dangers of alligators.
Please inform Snell Isle residents about the alligator, and the need to stay away from it. If we have any luck in trapping it, I will let you know.
Thank you for all that you do for our neighborhood. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely, Ed Montanari
City Council - District 3

Planters and Statues Donations Update:
July 12 – We are over halfway to our $5000 goal on our Planter and Statue Beautification Project. That’s when we will get a matching check of $5000 from our friends at the Rally Store at 22nd & 4th Street. Way to go everyone and thank you to all who donated.
We still need your help to reach our $5000 goal. Have you sent in your check? If not, please know how much we’d appreciate your support! Send your check to SIPOA at PO Box 7053, St. Petersburg, FL, 33734 AND please write on your check either “Rally” or “Beautification” so it can count towards our $5000 goal.
Also when you fuel up or drop in to purchase food or beverage at the Rally Store on 22nd Ave and 4th St, please THANK THEM for their support of Snell Isle. Few businesses would be willing to do a match like Rally.
Planters and Statues Beautification Update – Planters Done ! ! !
I hope you’re enjoying the new plantings all over the Isle. The planter part of our project is now complete and many of the volunteers are already working on “face-lifting” their adopted animals. If you pass a volunteer who is working on one, tap your horn to make them hear of your appreciation. We have 161 total statues all over Snell Isle so you can imagine the man-hours going into this Beautification Project. The volunteer corps is fantastic and we have Scout Troop 0219 who has adopted 10 of our statues to clean and paint as they earn their Scout Badges.
We still have some wonderful statues looking for “adoption”. Please call Bonnie Hargrett to sign up to help.
Name the Panther Contest
Can you help? The poor pitiful Panther statues have gone years without a common first name. The lions are all called “Leo”, but we have never give the Panthers a name . . . until now.
We will list the suggestions and you can vote on the best one for our lovely cats. The Panthers all thank you for doing this.
Please forward this Snell Isle Alert on to your family and friends on Snell Isle. We need all their help. Thank you.
