Fun Lakers Club news

Carole Sinicki

Welcome to 2018. The Fun Lakers Club hopes that everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and we are looking forward to a great year in Sun Lakes. Our first event for 2018 is the annual members-only meeting, which will be held on January 6 at the Ironwood Clubhouse. This is a meet-and-greet evening, including free pizza, music and fun. It is also an opportunity for current members to renew their memberships for 2018. Memberships may be renewed at the meeting, or you may download the renewal form from our website and mail it directly to Margie Brandon, the FLC treasurer. The cost for membership remains the same: $12.00 per person.

During the winter months, the Fun Lakers Club will be co-hosting a monthly dance with the Sun Lakes Dance Club. Each dance will be held in the San Tan ballroom at the Cottonwood CC. Entertainment for each evening will be Thaddeus Rose, and will include a no-host bar and appetizer menu, as well as door prizes. Dance lessons will begin at 6:30 p.m. with open dancing from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. Future dates for this season are January 18, February 22, and March 22, so please mark your calendar and join in the fun.

January is also the time for the Fun Lakers Club nominations committee to meet. The group will be preparing nominations for the April elections to the FLC Board of Directors. If you are interested in joining our board or volunteering to organize an event, please email your nomination to [email protected]

The club has been very fortunate in having such great people who volunteer their time and talents to make our club such a success. Special thanks to our club president, Bill Bachand, for all of his hard work in expanding our club, both in membership and activities.

Future events on our calendar for 2018 include Trivia Night on January 27, Gangster Night dinner and show on February 17 and our annual progressive dinner on March 24. For additional information regarding all of FLC’s events, check us out at www.funlakers.org. We also send out newsletters, event flyers and registration forms by email to all FLC members on a regular basis, so watch your inbox and mark your calendar for all of these super FLC events.

Fun Lakers Club is all about creating and fostering new and lasting friendships and, of course, having fun! If you haven’t joined or are not sure if it’s the right match for you, maybe this is the time to give it a try. We are happy to welcome non-members to our events as well; just visit our website for more information. As always, we look forward to seeing you at any and all of our club activities throughout the year.
