A Message from the Co-Presidents

 

Have you noticed the difference these days driving on I-75? On Fruitville? On Tamiami? Yes, the season has ended, and traffic jams and long restaurant waits are pretty much a thing of the past. There’s a downside: our snowbird Welcome Club members have left for parts north – or will soon – and we’ll miss you!

But don’t think for a minute that Welcome Club activities will subside with the offseason slowdown! Two of our best and biggest events – long sold out – are just ahead: the Jimmy Buffet party and the Kentucky Derby party. Then comes summer, with a cocktail party June 10, beer and pretzel night July 16, ladies-only happy hour July 26, cocktail party at the Cuban Ballet Aug. 30 and another cocktail party Sept. 16. Details will be rolled out in this newsletter as those dates approach.

And our program chairs have lined up some dynamite speakers to headline our summer luncheons: SRQ CEO Rick Piccolo in May (see article below), ABC-TV weather guru Bob Harrigan in June, motivational speaker Tim Walsh in July and an IMG Academy guest in August.

Yes, we will miss you, snowbirds, but the rest of us will stay busy until we welcome you back next season!
