Joint Wisconsin Club Golf Outings
Signup for the Joint Wisconsin Club Golf outing on May 6th (Hawkes Bay or Saddlebrook) is now underway. Cost is $2. Marylyn Butenhof will be at our next meeting to sign up interested members. The fall event will be on September 30th. Foursomes are picked at random. Participants get a ticket for a pitcher of beer or a soft drink. The group gathers after golf at a local restaurant for drinks and awarding of prizes. It is a great way to get to know other former Wisconsin people. Ray Haas (352-750-5142) of the Paradise Club is the event Chair.
Game and Card Night
Game and Card night is held at the Bacall Recreation Center on the 4th Monday of the month, 6:00-9:00 pm. The card games of Bridge and Sheepshead are prevalent, however, any card game or board game is welcome. If you have a favorite, bring it to game and card night. You can also bring a snack to share if desired. This event occurs every 4th Monday and continues throughout the summer.
