The Fun Lakers Club has been busy planning activities for the upcoming season. The monthly dances are open to the public, but why not become a member for just $15 per year? Then you will also be invited to attend the popular Christmas Dinner Dance and all of our other special events. Check out our website to join or for more information.

Here’s what’s coming up this fall:

Comedy Show: Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m.

Come laugh out loud with Zac Allen, opening; Josh Graves, feature performer; and Dwayne Perkins, our headliner. Similar to the Dance Party, we’ll have a limited dinner menu. This event is open to the public!

Dance Party: Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m.

The first Dance Party of the season features the Aaron Nelson Project. It’s a Halloween theme, so you can go wild and surprise everyone with your creativity, or just come as yourself and enjoy.

Fun Feud: Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m.

Have you ever watched Family Feud? You won’t want to miss this new event that our Activities Committee has dreamed up. Come be a contestant (there is a limited number of teams) or an audience member. The final winning team will win a $100 gift card to split. This event is open to the public!
