President’s Message: April 2015

Wow… what a great NCAA Tournament the Badgers treated us to… so sad to see them lose the final, but what a season they gave us. I felt bad their games were not shown in the afternoon so we could have gotten together to watch them, but it was not meant to happen. Rec Centers do not stay open late and Restaurants/Bars were not the right place for us to be to travel home from at a late hour. I do hope you all found house parties the thing to do..with new WI friends and old! I also hope you had a very Happy Easter, as well.

NOTE: Watch for another email designating who should bring salads and who should bring side dishes according to the Membership’s alphabetical Master list. Look for it on Thursday, please.

The doors will open at 5:15 for this event, with the Potluck starting at 6:00 p.m. sharp. Dinner will be followed by a very energetic presentation by The Villages Square Dancers, of which our Treasurer, Hal, and wife, 50/50 Gal, Nancy, are prominent members. They have quite the event planned for us with lots of extra dancers performing—- like our members, for example! Ya don’t want to miss this act!! This is their first time entertaining our Lake Sumter Club, and are doing so cuz they know what a great, receptive audience were always are!!

However, we are in jeopardy of losing this privilege if we don’t clean up after ourselves–like we did not do last month after Petrina’s show! Mike and I were there quite a while cleaning things up, and would have stayed later, but the staff said not to stay..we had done enough! Pictures had been taken of the mess and were shown to VP Judy, when she was there to arrange this month’s meeting set-

Those of you interested in golfing with the other two clubs on May 2, please email Jan Kloeffler, at jkloeffler1951@gmail.comto see if she has some spots left left for you! It is a lot of fun and only $2.00 per person… we can do this–and have the best showing! We are the fun-club, remember!!

Next Month’s meeting, May 18, 2015, will take place outdoors under the Pergola near Colony’s Bocce Courts. We will meet at 6:30 p.m. This will be a Fun & Outdoor Games night for us, complete with an Ice Cream Social provided by Ollie’s. If the weather does not permit this…. it ill take place inside the Rec Center in our usual meeting room. Bocce Ball, Bocce Golf ( bring your putters) balls provided, and Corn Hole Toss, and Ladder Ball Golf. Bring lawn chairs, too!

ALERT: THE WI LAKE SUMTER BOARD MEETING WILL BE HELD ON MAY 4, 2015, AT 4:00 AT PANERA’S SPANISH SPRINGS. THIS IS A JOINT 2014/2015 AND 2015/2016 BOARD MEETING.

See all you wonderful, loyal members at the meeting next Monday… be sure your calendars are marked!!

Helen Feeney Your President!
