Lazy Daze was created in 1987. A group of five men thought it would be a good idea to clean the Tangerine (TW) streets. Truck traffic involved with the construction of homes messed the streets with mud and dirt. The men brought their own brooms and shovels and proceeded to be responsible for keeping the TW streets clean. As time went on, the group of men increased in number and they began to take on more maintenance projects. For many years they were financially independent. They raised their own money to purchase needed equipment. Much of the equipment they used in the early years was their own.
In 2007 the TW Board of Directors voted to provide financial support for Lazy Daze. Several line items in the budget provide for the purchase of all equipment and parts for Lazy Daze to use in their activities.
At the present time there are 87 men on the Lazy Daze roster. They are all volunteers who meet every Monday. They are easily identified by their orange shirts. Their work day is 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.; however, work is also accomplished by different members throughout the week as needs arise.
This Lazy Daze volunteer group is divided into 17 crews and they are seen as an integal part of Tangerine Woods operations. Through their efforts, our association dues are reduced and the overall appearance of our community has a well groomed look.
