President’s Message 

          I hope your December was full of fun, family, friends, gifts and good food! The Holiday Dinner Dance was a lot of fun, and the luncheon at the Ocean Club was lovely as well.

Now we head into 2015 with a full calendar of activities. I would like to thank all of the Board Members, Activity Chairs and Committees Members who have volunteered to organize these activities. They are the backbone of the club. As I look over the calendar, I see something for everyone.

If you enjoy games, we have Bingo, Bridge, Bunko, Canasta, Mah-Jongg, and Poker.

If food is your personal favorite, we have a Cocktail Party, Gals on the Go, Gourmet Group, the Luncheon and Tables of 8.

Exercise is always needed after all that food, so we have Bicycling, Fitness Walking, Golf, Kayaking, Line Dancing and Tennis. We don’t want to forget about exercising our minds, so in addition to the games, we have Book Club, Book Review, Classical Music and Financial Education.

The only activity I couldn’t fit into these four areas was Stitching, which probably includes aspects of all four. Check out all of these activities and consider trying something new! I know I am! And, as always, if there isn’t something there for you, you may start a new group!

I am also looking forward to the luncheons this year. Our new Vice President, Phyllis Pescosolido and her two assistants, Michele Nielson and Betty Silkunas, have been busy visiting and sampling new restaurants. Our first luncheon will be at Queen’s Harbour Yacht and Country Club on Atlantic Blvd. in Jacksonville and President Elect Antje Wortman has a speaker from ATC (Amelia Tree Conservancy) coming to inform us about our canopy island. We definitely want to protect our trees! 

I want to thank Terri Borakove, the outgoing president, for serving the club so well in 2014. I am looking forward to being your president for 2015. Please introduce yourselves to me. With over 600 members I won’t always remember your name, so wear your name tag! I will be wearing mine.

Happy New Year!
