  • Spread your musical wings

    Our newest Songbird dropped into the clubhouse on a Wednesday. She said she could only stay for a few minutes.

    Guess what? Not only did she stay for the entire practice – she had so much fun she joined the flock.

    We aren’t high-toned Songbirds – if you love music we’ll take you under our wing even if you “can’t carry a tune,” are shy or have a game wing. You don’t have to read music – and no dues.

  • We’ll be caroling in the Glen

    This is that time of the year when we find the days are getting their shortest. That’s just in daylight but I’m sure that you (like me) feel as if the time is shorter, also. There’s not enough time in the day to prepare for the holidays.

  • Cherrywood Democrats to host leaders at Christmas party

    The Cherrywood Democrats have invited Commissioner Barbara Fitos, 200 Coalition president Pat Gabriel, columnist Nancy Archer and her husband Frank, and activities director Geri Waltrouse to the annual Christmas party Friday, Dec. 19.

    Members, bring your spouse or significant other and let Harriet Scarpino know what dish you plan to bring. Additionally, remember your grab bag item ($5 limit).

    We ask that you remember the young people serving our country and make a donation toward their needs through the Support Our Soldiers committee or a veterans’ organization.

  • Landing residents are ‘kettle’ pushers

    Every Wednesday since mid November Marion Landing residents have been ringing those bells at the Salvation Army’s red kettle in front of Winn Dixie. It’s become an annual tradition.

    They’re on duty from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. and would be tickled to have you stop by to wish them a merry Christmas and make your drop in the bucket. They will be manning the red kettle until Christmas Eve.

  • Yes, the pancake breakfast is tomorrow

    The Oak Run Newsletter incorrectly shows the pancake breakfast as taking place on its usual fourth Saturday of the month, Dec. 27. However, there are signs up all over the Orchid Club lobby that this month’s pancake breakfast will instead take place Saturday, Dec. 20.

    And what’s that reference to champagne? Sounds interesting – pancakes and bubbly tomorrow.

  • If they’re preserved enough, there’ll be some dancing

    Just down the road apiece, the majority of Spruce Creek Preserve residents anticipate a busy Christmas season, attending many planned “get-togethers” in the community.

    Preservists all agree that the event looked forward to the most is the Community’s Annual Christmas Social.

    High on the list of the Social’s favorites, the “Preserved Dancers” features eleven talented ladies, dressed in “knock out” attire, dancing to everyone’s favorite songs.

  • Count down to New Year’s and annual dance

    The Ambassadors are putting on "Count Down to 2009," their New Years’ dance on Wednesday, Dec. 31,  from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the Palm Grove Ballroom.

    Music will be by "Double Density," Ralph and Sandra, who play a variety of dance music. Festivities include hors d’oeuvres catered by Bruce.

  • Cay elves have decorated and trimmed the trees

    As this writer was at the clubhouse on Saturday, Dec. 6  checking the Citizen information box, Santa’s Elves were running around preparing for the Trim-a-Tree event the next day.  The Oasis is beginning not to look like an Oasis, but is turning into a winter wonderland … minus the “white stuff’!  The sound system was tuned up and Christmas music was a lovely accompaniment as members of the Board helped each other carry in the decorations, tree lights, and assorted “stuff’ in readiness for the next day. 

  • Trim the tree and join the Christmas parade

Cast your worries away and delve into the true meaning of Christmas. Isn’t it wonderful that we can share the time with beloved family and friends even those who are far away?
