• Little Theatre group set for upcoming performance

    Hope you’ve gotten your tickets for our Little Theatre Group’s upcoming performance on March 21. This Donna Taylor production reminds us what it was like last time you and I tried to recognize our classmates from 50 years ago and dodge being one-upped by their success stories along the way.

    We have a problem

    with issues

  • Spring production at dinner theatre almost here

    Jim Waddell, our dinner theatre chair, happily advises us that all decorative and menu preparations have been completed for our spring production of “Cocktails with Mimi” on April 2 at Palm Grove.

    Della Blanchard, our dinner theatre house manager, will accept all calls for dinner theatre reservations.

    The $30 per person charge includes dinner, show and three bottles of wine per round table of eight.

    Call Della at 237-6474.

    The cut-off date for dinner theatre only is March 24.

  • Director Bader steps down from Flamingo Club shows

    Hello Readers: The Flamingo Club Variety Show played to a sell-out crowd. The performers brought back the fabulous ‘50s in song and music, songs like AT THE HOP, Blueberry Hill, The Great Pretender, April Love, This Old House, That’ll Be The Day, Tammy and many more. The 90 minute show started off with Tequila and ended with a blast from the past!

  • That big garage sale is just around the corner

    The Spruce Creek Preserve “Open to the Public” Yard Sale on S. R. 200, three miles SW of C.R. 484 is slated for Saturday, March 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Community Center parking lot.

    Our Preserve Yard Sale space rental procedure proved very successful, indicating that many enthusiastic Preservists are planning to participate in this popular yearly event.

  • Music, meditation, mastering possibilities all in our community

    We go through many changes all our lives. Some circumstances leading up to them are wonderful and bring great joys. Then there are the others that provoke feelings of fear or pain. They can be physical or emotional or a mix of both.

  • Springing forward with the 100th column

    Today is the first day of spring. We look forward to trees budding, flowers blooming, and weather becoming more normal. Hopefully, the winter with its up and down temperatures from unusual lows to periods of unseasonable warm days, has really ended.

    With a spring in our step we travel down Pun Alley for some seasonal tales.

  • Cherrywood Democrats looking for input

    On March 20, we shall be putting together our activities for the coming months with the local and national branches of the Democratic Party. It is going to be a busy and exciting time. We need everyone’s input.

    Our young people serving our country in Iraq and Afghanistan need our support and thanks year-round, so please work with our veterans organizations and our Support Our Soldiers Committee to show our appreciation for their dedication.

  • Coyotes and rabbits taking up residence near Palm Cay

    Hello Readers: Welcome to warmer weather! Perhaps we can put away the woollies for another year. Now we are able to think of gardening and all the pretty flowers to plant in our yards!

    Our pets

    Have you noticed there are more coyotes visiting our back yards these days and getting bolder?

    We infringe on their habitat, so they have to go somewhere. However, it would be devastating to loose a beloved pet, so please keep cats and dogs inside.

  • Mardi Gras came to SummerGlen

    It’s been a while since I last authored this column but things are moving right along here, with many activities to occupy our time. (Hey, excuse me but I came here to retire and loaf.)

    Many of us participated in Christmas caroling around the pool at the Residents Hall, and six or seven went to the house of a 108-year-old resident to personally treat her.

    Our New Year’s Eve gala was a fun evening for many, while others just relaxed at home with a few friends. All in all the New Year happened anyway.
