CHRISTMAS CAROLING: This is held once a year on a Sunday evening in December.  Light up your golf cart and get into the procession.  There are flatbed trucks to carry carolers also.  We go to shut-in Villa residents, singing and giving them a plate of homemade cookies.  Afterwards, the carolers all come back to the clubhouse for cookies and hot chocolate. 


COMEDY CLUB:  This group puts on a SELL OUT show once a year, plus a few teaser skits at Potluck or a Saturday morning breakfast. Everyone is invited to join; you never know if you have the “knack”!  Come to a meeting and see if it’s for you. Contact Rose Norwood for details.  Phone # in directory.
