President’s Message: December 2014

Hello again all of you WI Club Lake Sumter Magnificent members!

Extreme Bingo playing and a blessed Thanksgiving Day have passed, along with the weekly Badger Football games, but Green Bay Packer game TV viewing mania continues at Cody’s Roadhouse in Brownwood for the next 3 Sundays at 1:00 p.m., where we will see them go off campus (Lambeau Field) to crush their opponents–Buffalo (my other favorite team), Tampa, and Detroit…. in that order, on 12/14, 12/21, and 12/28. Be sure you let Jan K. know your intent to attend so Cody’s knows how many to expect…. we get seated more efficiently by doing it this way.! They are probably expecting quite a large group of us after the last time we viewed there!! Yes, there will be pools, and possibly a Super Bowl Pool, as well. Jan’s email is: See you there!!! Go Packers!!!

Our festive Holly and Mistletoe Dinner Dance will take place Monday, Dec. 15– next Monday–for those of you who purchased tickets. The doors will open at 5:45…not earlier… for Happy Hour -B.Y.O.B., and dinner will be served at 6:30p.m. Remember, you have reserved seats and do not have to rush… you all will be checked in and escorted to your table to be seated. The terrific Clark Barrios combo will play for our listening and dancing pleasure throughout our beautiful evening together. I am excited and can hardly wait to get there!

Those of you who may be interested in attending the Outback Bowl–be patient, please! I am checking to see what may be available to us. Keep your eyes on your email! Part II of this Newsletter to be sent to you very soon. It will contain WI Singers info, as well as a February 9th Fish Fry event and info, and info on our Victory Cruise Ship sailing on Feb. 5 at Port Canaveral. I’m calling it Fabulous February! Stay tuned….!

Helen Feeney President

Update: December 28, 2014


January’s meeting, on the 19th, will feature two of our very own members, Bill and Barb Commack, as our entertainers for the evening. They plan on giving us a very fun-filled night of Trivial Pursuit, including some great WI Trivia! Complete with prizes! Be sure you don’t miss this!

Looking ahead to Fabulous February, Vice President Judy Cimbalnik, has planned a Fish Fry for us on February 9 at Spruce Creek Restaurant where Chip, formerly of OBG Country Club, will be cooking it for us!! Be ready to make and pay for your reservation at our January meeting. No unpaid reservations will be taken for this, as we are limited to only 120 people, so have your cash or checkbook with you at our meeting on January 19th. There will be no…”I want to go, my check is in the mail” situations! Call Judy for more information on this event re cost, etc., at 262-391-9869, and she will bring you up to date.

Before we get to that Fish Fry together, member Lynn Bartlett has put together a trip for us to the Victory Casino Cruise out of Port Canaveral on Thursday, February 5, 2015! Mark your calendars for this fun event in February, 2015, and please read the attached flyer. I will send out a special email to you regarding all the exact travel details later in January. The Villages’ own Donna Moore will be on board for our entertainment! Send your check, made out to WI Club Lake Sumter, to Lynn Bartlett, 1729 Dutchess Loop, The Villages, FL 32162 I am sending this notice to you now so you will have plenty of time to find a sub for yourselves at Golf, Pickleball, MahJongg, etc., as it is a Daytime Trip!

I surely hope to see you all at these fun events!
