In April, the Fun Lakers Club (FLC) nominated new board and committee chairs for the upcoming season. In May, the position for activities chair remained open. We would like to now congratulate Donna and Felix Petrillo as our new co-chairs. Voting for this position took place at the May FLC board meeting, by unanimous vote. Welcome aboard, Donna and Felix. It’s going to be a great season.

As the fall season begins, we are planning a variety of new and fun activities. As each event becomes available, all members receive the event flyer and registration form by email. The information will also be posted on our website at www.funlakers.org. Upcoming events include Game Night, Chili for Charity and a Cart/Car Road Rally. Our annual Holiday Dinner/Dance will be held on Saturday, December 15. It is one of the club’s premiere events of the year, with a featured band and a special holiday menu. Be sure to mark your calendar and save the date.
The Fun Lakers Club is all about creating and fostering new and lasting friendships and, of course, Having Fun!
