ACTIVITY DEPARTMENT NEWS:
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration: I have posted information about what is happening on my board in the Small Hall as well as several places in this hall. Just look for the Green Top Hat. There has been a change in the schedule for the day.
The Poker Run will start at 1:30 in the Small Hall instead of 2 PM. You’ll pick up a map and visit 8 different sites around the park. The person with the best hand will win the pot. After you have visited all eight places, you can turn your card into the Activity Office. We’ll notify the winner by phone and put the results on Facebook and the Blog. The winner will get the whole pot if it is under $200. After it goes over $200, the top two people will split the pot.
There will be a Golf Cart Parade again this year. Meet at Lot 333 at Trophy Gardens at 3:30 PM. More specifics on it are posted on the walls as well as a map of the parade route so those that just want to watch the parade will know where to sit. People that do the Golf Cart Parade are invited to a Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner at Trophy.
A Charity Golf Scramble for Alzheimer’s is tentatively proposed for March 18th. Watch the Golf Board for more information.

EASTER DINNER: We will have a potluck on Easter Sunday at 1 PM in the Large Hall. There are signup sheets in the Large Hall for the tables. This will be done the same way as we do Christmas and Thanksgiving except that the Activity Department will be giving the $1 per person at each table toward the meat. Each table will meet and decide what they will be making and what meat will be provided. The Activity Department will have coffee and iced tea available.
GREAT NEWS: Jim Thomas, next seasons Woodshop President, gave us all good news that Wilder Corporation will be putting $10,000 toward a new building. The new building will house stained glass and ceramics as well as the Painting Group. The existing building will be used by the Woodshop who is going to expand their area into the stained glass and ceramics area. Activity Room #3 and the Exercise Room will remain as they are. The Arts and Crafts Room will then be dedicated for any sewing, quilting or needlework activities or crafting projects. This project will be a two-year project with the building being constructed next season. The Activities Office is now taking donations toward the project and more fundraising will be done next season.
