  • Bingo enters summer slowdown

    H ello readers: As summer comes upon us, some activities take a hiatus or slow down. One of the most popular ongoing activities is Bingo.

    On Monday and Thursday nights the Oasis is alive with a goodly number of enthusiastic players at the tables. But in July and August, Thursday night Bingo will take a holiday.

    Monday night Bingo will play Thursday night games for those two months. Everything will return to normal in September, when on the first Thursday and Monday, the Oasis will again be crowded with gamers.

  • Medical Team sponsoring dementia series

    “Alzheimer’s and Dementia, What’s the Difference?” is the title of a series of interactive programs offered at Oak Run by the Medical Team. Education is the key; the more you know the more options you have.

    Care giving is a tough job. Get the tools you need to make a difference.

    The first of these programs will be at the Orchid Club on Friday, June 27, at 1 p.m. This program will give insight into the different reasons for dementia and changes that are occurring in the brain which cause this life-changing illness.

  • To eliminate stress make some changes

    I read this in the March issue of Health magazine: “Need a change?” A variety of things can trigger the close of one chapter and the start of another – a death, divorce, a significant birthday, a layoff, children going off to college.

    Like a great novel, you never know where the story will go next. A natural transition is often signaled by boredom.

    One of the best things we can do when we feel that malaise is to understand that one chapter is ending – and a new one is starting up.

  • Democratic Club calls to regroup

    As many Oak Runners know, the Democratic Club’s dynamic president, Ed Corbett, died in April. All Oak Run registered Democrats are strongly urged to come to the Orchid Club on Thursday, June 18 at 7 p.m.

    We need to regroup, reorganize and decide what role we will play in this year’s elections. New faces and new ideas are needed to allow this club to provide a platform for Democrats.

  • Fly the flag proudly on June 14

    Hello Readers: A reminder ee another week passes with very little rain ee and the heat rises. For the safety of your health, drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. Also, stating the obvious, never leave a pet or child in a hot, parked car.

    Saturday, June 14 is Flag Day. A short historyee In 1885, Mr. Cigrand, a schoolteacher in Wisconsin, arranged for his pupils to observe June 14, as “Flag Birthday” or “Flag Day” which was the 108th anniversary of the adoption of “The Stars and Stripes.”

  • Congratulations to Landing's lady golfers

    Word has gotten out that Gladys Beatty, Nancy Rife and Kay Shoaf all received “chip in pins” during the recent Palm Tees Golf League awards luncheon, when Nancy and Kay also earned their “birdie pins.” Kay was honored with a very special award; an abacus for having carded the highest number of strokes for a single hole.

    These ladies join members from other Corridor communities playing the 9-hole course at Oak Run ee where, Nancy tells me, they count all of their putts.

  • Special speaker at Democratic Club meeting

    Did you ever hear about the practice called “pay it forward?” This is more or less how it works.

    Look for an opportunity to help someone. Then suggest that the person pay you back by doing a good deed for someone else. That person can then do likewise.

    This doesn’t necessarily have to involve money. There are other ways such as offering to extend a helping hand.

    When someone has done something nice for you, pay it forward. It will leave you with a good feeling. Kindness to others can keep radiating outward.
