Evergrene Events in April

March 27th, 2017

Spotlight on Evergrene

As the Easter holiday approaches, Evergrene is getting prepared for their usual exciting events at the Clubhouse. This month the Easter bunny will be in full force hiding his goodie filled eggs all around the clubhouse for the young residents to find. The egg hunt will take place on Saturday April 15th at 9:30 a.m. In addition to the holiday event, Evergrene is also holding another blood drive starting at 10:30 a.m. on April 8th and the monthly wine tasting every third Tuesday on the pier at 6:30 p.m.

In real estate news, currently, there are approximately 30 homes on the market in the neighborhood. Last month there were 6 closed sales and 16 pending sales. It looks like Evergrene will be getting a lot of new neighbors moving in soon! If any current residents would like a free home valuation report to get an idea of what your house may be worth on today’s market, please call Jake Everding at 561-777-9890 or email jake@echofineproperties.com.

Thank you,

Evergrene Events in March

Evergrene Events in March

Come down and enjoy the happenings at the Clubhouse this March in Evergrene. This month Evergrene is hosting a special event “Alzheimer’s- A New Beginning” with two guest speakers, Geri and Jim Taylor, on March 1st. These two inspired a recent article featured in TIME Magazine this past May, explaining the difficulties and triumphs of living with Alzheimer’s. The presentation will also tell of Geri’s participation in a new drug trial, Jim being cast in a professional play, ironically about Alzheimer’s, and insight on living with dignity and the illness.

 

On March 17th, Evergrene will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a bang. The event will take place at the Tiki Bar and will have all the green and gold goodies to enjoy, such as green beer, corned beef and cabbage, and shepherd’s pie. Don’t miss out on this all-day fun!

Spotlight on Evergrene

Social Media has taken the world by storm the past few years, and it’s not only for reaching out to friends and loved ones anymore. By using twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the hundreds of other social media outlets, people are now promoting their businesses and using it as a strategic marketing tool.

Some of you Evergrene residents may have a new or even an established personal business, for which I would love to offer a free place to market and try to build up your clientele base. Most of you I’m sure have a Facebook account and I think that’s an easy and good place to start. All you need to do is like and follow my Evergrene Facebook account at then send a direct message with your business info, and your Evergrene address (residential address will not be publicly shared). Once verified, I will make a post and tag your business!

Jake's Evergrene Resident Spotlight | Krista Watterworth

October 28th, 2016
Krista Watterworth

Krista Watterworth

I sat down with Krista Watterworth, a TV personality and an Evergrene resident, to find out a bit more about her career and interest in the Evergrene community.

Where are you originally from?

I grew up in Connecticut, but left soon after high school to go to college in Maine. Then I traveled and lived in Chicago, Los Angeles, South Beach, and Manhattan. I like to say I’m Connecticut born, New York raised, and recently adopted by the Palm Beaches.

What brought you down here?

My husband’s family was the initial driver, and we wanted to leave Manhattan to raise our kids outside of the city. We came here six years ago (when I was 8 months pregnant with out second child) and never left. Although my husband’s company is still based in New York, my Studio is solely based in Palm Beach Gardens. We still love Manhattan and try to visit as often as we can (I’m a closet foodie so I miss the restaurants!).

What attracted you to the Evergrene community?

We lived in a community prior to this one where there weren’t a lot of young families. We visited Evergrene and right away, we knew it was right for us. We saw not only young families, but a vibrant and active community. Couples leaving the clubhouse on their bikes, children scootering on the sidewalk, people walking and jogging- we knew it was the right vibe for us.

Tell me a bit about your business and the path towards your success.

I started out in television hosting my own show on HGTV, then I studied at Parsons School of Design to gain a more educated perspective for my work. After designing on HGTV, the Food Network, and DIY Network, I decided to open up a studio here in Palm Beach Gardens. Thankfully, we are busy with clients and building our brand. Now we are expanding with product ( I have my own line of tile) and a blog called ‘Design Palm Beach.’

What made you want to do what you do?

At a young age I was drawing interior’s- a slice of life in a warm environment. They were crude elevations at age seven revealing people interacting in homes and apartment buildings. It was a journey to get where I am, I’ve worked hard, but I’m doing what I love. I design homes because an outer comforting world is very personal to me, and I want to share that gift with my clients.

1430barlowct1982-copy

Do you have any celebrity clientele?

Right now I have a client who is a professional hockey player, I also just finished the home of Selena Gomez’s road manager, and I regularly work with Rob Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice). Though most of my clients are regular people who just want a beautiful South Florida home that reflects who they are.

Design Strengths?

I am a good listener. Designing someone’s house isn’t about me, and a designer has to be part psychic and part psychologist. I believe in order to be effective, I have to read into the spirit of my client and bring that to life on the canvas of their home.

1430barlowct2656-copy

What are you favorite daytime/nighttime activities?

I love great food. I’m always interested in finding fabulous restaurants that are doing interesting and creative things with cuisine. I don’t discriminate! I love all ethnicities of food- the more authentic, the better.

Which Evergrene model are you in, and what changes have you made since you bought?

I have an Elliston model. We looked at so many of this model when we were searching for a home. So I incorporated alot of elements other Elliston models had. We put in a powder bath by the entry, turned our smaller garage into an office, and our upstairs potting room is now an indoor meditation space that doubles as a guest room (with a murphy bed). I’m always changing, moving, and updating- it’s impossible for me as a designer to stop innovating (my husband loves it!)

Favorite Quote?

I love Maya Angelou and lately the line from this poem has been an inspiration. I am moved by people who overcome adversity or difficulty in life with their heads held high.

“Just like moons and like suns, with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high, still I’ll rise”

Are you working on any fundraisers?

Currently I’m working with KidSanctuary on their expansion project. They are a “not for profit organization committed to providing a safe home for abused, abandoned, or neglected children in Florida.” My website is www.kristawatterworth.com  My popular blog is www.designpalmbeach.com

Jake's Spotlight on Evergrene’s New Club Director

October 1st, 2016

Maintaining the integrity and coordinating the functions at the renowned Evergrene community can be a difficult task to place on one’s shoulders, especially if you’re a first-time Florida Resident. Although this may be a daunting task for some, Dan Pompile is the man for the job.

Originally from the Northeast, New Jersey to be more specific, for the past 12 years Dan has overseen many high-end and rustic-themed events in his previous position as an event coordinator. So his new position as Director comes very naturally.

Daniel Pompile

I asked Dan what brought him down to Florida and to Evergrene specifically, and as I’m sure most of you have guessed, it was the proximity to the ocean and its picturesque beaches, as well as the close ties the community has to natural preservation. Dan is an avid paddleboarder and enjoys traveling along the coast of Singer Island the most. Being able to enjoy his active hobby year round, dressing in shorts, and enjoying the sun is a major improvement from having to shovel snow and deal with that frigid and sometimes brutal Northeast weather.

One of Dan’s other unique hobbies is his woodworking capabilities. From building new concept furniture to rehabbing and refurbishing “Shaker style,” his talents are many. So Evergrene residents, feel free to stop by the clubhouse and ask Dan about it… maybe you have a piece of furniture you’d like him to put a new spin on?

Dan has many new ideas he would like to implement into the monthly functions at Evergrene, such as integrating the community on a more personal level with new clubs and activities for both seniors, adults, and children to enjoy. Some of these include a community blood drive to help those in need on October 1st, a Trivia night, a Movie night on the beach at Evergrene, and even a Murder Mystery and dinner event. For those of you 18 and over, an “adult only” Halloween party will take place at the clubhouse on October 29th. He hasn’t forgotten about the kids either… presently he is trying to coordinate a naming contest for one of the roaming bobcat/fox residents of the preserve.

Dan’s Favorite Quote: “It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation.” – Herman Melville

Please stop by and welcome Dan Pompile to the Evergrene family, as I’m sure he will bring nothing but a feeling of close community ties and fun to the residents and its guests in this prestigious and beautiful neighborhood.
