As summer rolled along, Grand Horizons continued its activities.
One special event took place on Sept. 9 at the Olive Garden. This was the Friday Connoisseurs that meets the second Friday of every month. Approximately 24 people attended the luncheon hosted by Chris Buckley. If you’ve ever gone to the Olive Garden before, you know that there is an extensive menu with something for everyone. I understand from Chris that the service was just fantastic. All the residents who attended had a great time with much conversation and picture taking going on.
Because the weather is getting nicer and many people coming back to Florida from being away for the summer, and the level of activity is increasing.
One such activity is bingo. Here they welcome back the previous people and look forward to new friends. Bingo is every Tuesday night and hosted by Terri Satterlee and Cathy Hepp. This is a fun and exciting game, especially if you are close to having a “bingo.” At this point of the game, you can hear a pin drop.
On Sept. 20, Jo Ann Fisher hosted a meeting to see who is back from up north to play Bunco. This is also a fun game that is played with dice. It is a fast-paced game. People really must be on their toes.
In addition to these newly returned activities, Grand Horizons will continue with euchre every Thursday night. There must be something to this game, as there seems to be more and more people every week.
Then, of course, we have Mexican Train every Monday night. This particular game is a lot of fun, and you can hear several people joking and teasing during the game. You can hear all sorts of comments like, “My train is falling off of the track” and more.
We also have mah-jongg, which is played every Wednesday. This game involves a lot of concentration, and if you end up getting a “mah-jongg,” you really feel like you accomplished something.
So, as you see, more and more activities are coming back to Grand Horizons, and we look forward to additional ones to come.
