Jeff and I enjoyed a road trip on the way back to Minnesota so now we are settled in and putting a new roof and painting our lake home. Fun!! The summer flies by quickly so I want to get you charged up as you start thinking about our adventure for the 2018-2019 season. Please check the website calendar for complete listings of events and times and remember that start dates are subject to change as our club leaders arrive at different times.
We will kick off with our Welcome back get-togethers on October 18th and 25thfollowed by our popular annual Halloween costume party. We will honor our veterans on Sunday, November 11th following our church service. On Nov. 15th Jerry will have his fish fry along with the Uptown Angels with a performance for our veterans.
Boogie Tuesdays and Wednesday Bingo will start in November. You will want to try your luck at the new Bingo games and get your lists together for your favorite dances. I have some returning favorite bands such as Johnny K and Kompany, Come Back Buddy, Junction 87, and The Big Zephyr, (playing for our Sweetheart Ball) and more. I have added some new bands as well –such as DJ and the Midnight Sun, Soul Impressions, Cactus Wine and more. We will have another Hippie Night. Ladies, don’t forget your poodle skirts! “3 Speed” will be our band for our New Years Dance. Plan to party the Night Away! I have Prom night again and an ‘evening in red.’
December 13th will be our 7th annual Christmas Parade so be thinking how you would like to decorate your golf cart or any other moving vehicle. Still in the planning is a “Chili Cook-off” following the parade with our local Fireman judging. Entrance to the event will be a toy. All the toys will be distributed by the fire station to local families in the community. Who will be the winners for the best Chili and golf cart? Our talented decorators will have our park and ballroom glowing with Christmas lights and decorations.
