 Help make a movie in our area!!

Community Many of the residents in Gulf Harbor visit the Citgo station on Floramar as you drive in and out on their daily commutes to work and home, or just stop on for beverages and bait.

Many of us know the owners, who live right here in Gulf Harbor, and the rest of the crew there.
Most of you know Todd, the long haired friendly guy who enjoys talking to you when you come in, always friendly and always helpful. But did you know he is also an independent film maker?

Todd Peska is the owner of Metraricus Productions, LLC. He has been writing, acting, and directing for more than 20 years, starting in his 20's in Michigan on local public access.

He made his first movie in 2005, "True Love" which he wrote directed and co-produced.
"It never went anywhere, but it was agreat learning experience." Peska says.

Now Todd is trying to shoot a movie right here in central Florida. "Cara's Path is a story of loss and redemption. Cara is a 16 year old girl who's life is turned upside down when her parents die in a tragic accident." Todd says of the story. "She turns her back on everyone and follows a bad path. The whole time, we can see, even though she cant that every action she does is being fed to her by a demon she cant see."

Peska labels the movie as a Christian thriller. "It is geared for everyone to enjoy. There is a powerful message in the movie, but it is set in a great mainstream story that anyone can enjoy."

Todd has the project on crowdfunding sites and to raise seed money to get it started. He has the story tag posted as well as a preview he shot this spring. He is asking for any ones support that can help get the very small amount together to get the preliminary work done.

 WOWS: Women of the Woodlands - May 2014

<br>Women<br> of the <br>WoodlandsOur luau can only be described as a feast for the senses! Cathe, Margaret, Reni and Susan transformed the meeting room into a feast for the eyes. Their festive decor created a virtual 'tropical paradise", and the guests added to the ambiance b,/ dressing in their most colorful island apparel. The Hawaiian music was a feast for the ears...and Kalani kept us on our toes with a lesson on how to do a hula dance. We even had a "hula" hoop contest...with prizes for the winners!!

Ginny and Doris concocted a very tasty rum & pineapple punch, and let's can I describe the feast of food that was prepared for our palates by Jean Pallatto and her crew of Doris, Diana, Barbara K., Marrianne, Ginny,and Joyce C. First off I can tell you it was abundant! Then I'll tell you it was scrumptious. The marinated chicken kabobs were succulent. The fried rice was fragrant with aroma. The spring rolls were crisp and flavorful: the boneless pork ribs were tender and juicy: the fresh fruit bowls (pictured here) were ripe and tasty. Last...but not least...was the variety of choices at the spectacular dessert table. My goodness! These ladies really know how to cook and bake.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped to make this party such a success. As I said that night in my welcome speech... "IT TAKES A VILLAGE". And it certainly took the myriad talents of the entire club to make this final party of the year the outstanding success that it was.

We are currently taking reservations for the May officer installation luncheon being held at the Gulf Harbors Yacht Club. The date is Wednesday, May 14 at 12 noon. The cost is $14.50. Call MaryJean Sandberg or Barbara K. or me for menu information and to reserve your spot.

Yours in friendship, Margaret Mardyniak
President, Women Of the Woodlands
