The last Comedy Show was so popular that we are having another one on Feb. 4 featuring Leigh Cummings, host; Kristofer Royer, feature; and Joey Gaynor, our headliner. It’s open to the public—just $10 for members and $15 for non-members, and tickets are on sale now. If we’re not sold out, you can pay at the door, but be safe and purchase your ticket now at

Comedy Night will be at the San Tan Ballroom at the Cottonwood Country Club, 25630 S. Brentwood Drive, in Sun Lakes. Remember, laughing is good for your health!

The Dance Parties will continue until summer. On Thursday, Feb. 23, we’ll celebrate Mardi Gras/Carnival, so find your most outrageous outfit and we’ll “let the good times roll” with the Thaddeus Rose Band.

Thursday, March 16, is a ‘50s-theme Dance Party with an honest-to-gosh Dance-Off. The top three dancers will win cash prizes: $100, $50, and $25. Got a poodle skirt? Splash Band will provide our music.

The cash bar and limited menu will be available, as usual, so come early. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and music plays from 7 until 9:30 p.m. Tickets are available for $10 per person per dance at and at the door. Dance Parties are open to the public, so bring your friends. The dances are at the Cottonwood ballroom where we enjoy the ballroom-size dance floor.

Members only: Be sure to get out your calendar and mark March 18 for the Golf Cart Rally. Note: This is a date change from March 25. We are excited because this year it’s at Cottonwood, which will be a bigger route than last year, and we will be able to have the games at the five lakes. This is a members-only event, so make sure your membership is current.

Membership covers card and game groups like Euchre, Mexican Train, and Texas Hold’em Poker, as well as bocce ball and the Solo group.
