The Fun Lakers Club (FLC) held a progressive dinner for 144 club members on Saturday, March 16. The evening began with stops at various members’ homes for drinks and appetizers. Guests then traveled to their second-home location for a Taste of Paris dinner. Following dinner, everyone gathered in the San Tan Ballroom for French pastries and dancing. It was a great evening of fun and camaraderie. “Thank you” to everyone who volunteered to open their homes for this event, and a special “thank you” to Jackie and Don Morgan for again planning and organizing the evening. It was truly fantastic!

FLC has planned an Escape Room experience on Thursday, April 4, at the Escape Room Mesa. Teams will be assigned at random with the starting time at 4:00 p.m. After our “escape,” we will celebrate with a Happy Hour get-together.

If you have but you aren’t near our area then you can always check out an escape room columbus or an escape room Atlanta, check your local area to find which one is closest to you.
