While most of our residents are either going back to their northern homes or taking motor trips, games and dinners still continue at Grand Horizons.
There was an Easter dinner and potluck in our community center on April 20, and 56 residents and guests attended this outing hosted by Terry and Mim Gardner, Ken and Cheryl Leone, Carol George, and Rich and Chris Fulton. The social club provided the ham, and each couple brought a dish to complete the meal.
There was a great variety including pasta salad, coleslaw, potato salad, chicken salad, scalloped potatoes, vegetables, and so much more. In addition to these dishes, there were several desserts for the sweet tooth, and a lovely cake that was shaped like a lamb that was so moist.
Before tables were called, grace was given by Fred Sage. He did a lovely job of it and we thank him.
After dinner was complete, Ken Leone mentioned that there were two winners from each table. Each winner went home with a lovely handmade centerpiece.
We had a lovely time, and the potluck was done in very good taste.
Most of the activities that have been going on in the past several months are continuing.
They still have shuffleboard every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, which is loads of fun with friendly conversation among the players. Every Thursday they still have mah-jongg and euchre on Thursday night.
Dominoes are still played every Monday night, and bingo is every Tuesday night in our community center. There are these activities and so much more to keep a person busy and not wondering what to do next.
We had an ice cream social at our community center on May 4. Marty and I were not there as we traveled back to Connecticut. Wish we were back in Florida, as it is so cold here.
From what I understand, there were several toppings available. Many people attended and thoroughly enjoyed themselves creating sundaes that were beyond description.
The hosts for this special event were Dave and Linda Tutin, Bill and Karen Donlon, and Rich and Chris Fulton. Our thanks go out to them on arranging this function.
Before signing off on this write-up, I would like to add a little note for you music lovers. While Marty and I were going to our home up north, we made a little side trip to a museum that contained mementos, treasures, pictures, articles and movies on Patsy Cline. This museum was quite extensive and we spent several hours there.
