The Wednesday Night Social will take place on Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Oasis Clubhouse. Darrel and Suzanne Morgan will entertain our community with music and singing. Darrel and Suzanne are coming to us from the Orange Blossom Opry. Darrel is the lead guitarist the singer with the “Opry Band.” His wife, Suzanne, is singer and MC for the Thursday evening show at the Opry. These wonderful entertainers have exceptional voices and dynamic personalities.

There will be a 50/50, door prizes, and wonderful desserts, thanks to our Palm Cay bakers.

Admission is only $2 at the door, and bakers are welcomed and appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Solomon.

Palm Cay Seniors plan upcoming events

The Palm Cay Singles Club met Sept. 1 to plan their upcoming events for the next few months.

On Oct. 20, they will have a picnic at the Liberty Park. On Nov. 22, they will be attending the Acrobats show at the CFCC. The Christmas Party will take place on Dec. 15 at the Oasis Clubhouse. On Feb. 5, they will attend the dinner and show at the Webber Room at CFCC.

Oak Run will be holding the All Singles Pot Luck dinner. All singles in the local communities are invited. They will be holding this Pot Luck in February, the date yet to be determined.

The Big Red Bus

Watch for the Big Red Bus in the parking lot of the Oasis on Sept. 15th from 8 a.m. to noon. Everyone is invited to bring their blood and leave a pint with one of the great ladies on the bus. Better yet, “have one of the ladies on the bus take the blood for you.”

Kitchen gets a new look

Our kitchen in the Clubhouse has gotten a new look thanks to members of the kitchen committee and some helpers. The new wall color is “Sand bar,” a peach color, which sets off the cabinets beautifully. Heritage paid for the paint while Marilyn Johnson, Kathy Connors, Nancy Solomon, Kay Gramling, Alan Johnson, and Jim Braunsheidel painted the walls. They also put up a new stainless steel back splash behind the stove for easier clean up. Marilyn and Kathy made the new curtains for the window. The kitchen looks great thanks to these hard working people and the support of Heritage.

Keep Informed

There are many people who work hard to keep our community active and busy. And there are many ways that the community members can stay informed and active.

One of my favorite ways to stay in touch with all the activities and “goings-on” in Palm Cay is through our newsletter, the “Palm Cay Sun.” I enjoy getting it and reading it from cover to cover. Our new publishing staff, headed by Jean Selent, work hard to cover events with news and pictures along with letting us know what is coming up in the new month. Recently, Jean asked the Homeowners Board and the Homeowners if she could start a new section in the paper - a classified advertisement section. It was brought to her attention that there are a few people who cannot get to the Clubhouse to read the hallway board which handles sale items. Jean has asked that the wording to kept to 10 words or less. So if you have something you would like to sell, contact Jean.

Another way to stay in touch is through the eneighbors website, supported and updated by Roger Demary. This weekly issue has many important aspects: news, clubs, an advertising section, links to important information and documents pertinent to Palm Cay, along with a personal comment section.

Channel 12, though the community Cablevision, is kept up and current by Louise McAleese. This channel has all the information you would want to know about what is happening in Palm Cay, plus information on your Homeowners Board members.

The bulletin boards in the hallway of the Clubhouse are full of information on weekly, monthly, and upcoming events, the clubs and activities in Palm Cay. You will also see advertisements for trips, and items to buy. On your way to and from the library or other activities in the Clubhouse, stop and browse the boards.

Contact any board member or chairperson if you have any questions concerning an activity or event.

Attend Homeowners Meeting where important items are discussed and often voted upon.

And, please don’t for get this column in the “Citizen.” I will try to bring you information and interesting tidbits, along with telling you about the wonderful people in our community.
