All the members had a fantastic time at the Italian Progressive Dinner where the appetizers were at a person’s house, then the guests split up and went to another person’s house for dinner, and then finished up at Cottonwood San Tan Ballroom for dessert and dancing. The best-dressed Italian man was Joe Tucker.

The Fun Lakers will also be hosting our first Masquerade Ball on April 17, 2020, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Oakwood Ballroom. It will be an elegant dress-up event with masks required. This elegant evening will feature a chocolate fountain and the music of DJ Jamal and a $50 cash prize awarded for the “Best” mask of the evening. Pre-registration is due by April 13.
