Fun Lakers Club news

The Fun Lakers Club (FLC) held a members-only progressive dinner on March 24. The evening began with a stop at members’ homes for appetizers and drinks. After enjoying appetizers, guests traveled to their second home location for a Mardi Gras dinner. Following dinner, everyone met back at the Ironwood clubhouse for a special king cake or berry pie dessert, with entertainment provided by the Lynn Jackson duo. It was a great night for gathering together for food and fun. “Thank you” to everyone who volunteered to open their homes for this event, and a special “thank you” to Jackie and Don Morgan for planning and organizing the evening. It was truly delightful!

On April 17, the Fun Lakers will host a dance party at the Sun Lakes Country Club (SLCC). The theme for the evening will be Rock and Roll, with live entertainment and dancing. Please check out our website at for further details about this event and get ready for an evening of fun-filled musical memories.

Another event planned for April is the Jimmy Buffett tribute concert at Oakwood on April 18, with an optional Margarita and cheeseburger party at 5:00 p.m. in the Oakwood Poolside Cafe. Come join other “parrotheads” for a special evening in “Margaritaville.” Show and dinner tickets are available at the concierge desk at Oakwood Clubhouse.

FLC events are created and developed by members who volunteer. With that in mind, a new board is chosen each April. At this time, we have our nominees who have offered to serve for the 2018-2019 season. All members are eligible to vote for the new board at the meeting on April 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sewing Room at Oakwood.
